Wait! I got it...

Star Wars : Episode IX Rey of Hope!

Just kidding, but in all seriousness I hope you're wrong Greg. It would make sense for Disney to finish off the so-called Skywalker saga though. Eliminate all of the Skywalkers and then start their own SW films with the new characters to try and milk the franchise for every cent they can.

"New Order Strikes Back" sounds like a Joy Division album title.

Well so much for the Jedi religion. You're all just lightside force practitioners now guys. Walt's mega-revenant ain't having none of it. You got moused. 

No word on how this affects the Temple of Fast Herby or the Apple Dumpling Sect.

Episode XII: The Last Half A Sith

Darth Maul is back and more powerful than ever though rapidly succumbing to senility. Finn and his 8 clones including '2 headed Finn' and 'webbed fingers Finn' try to keep Maul from cornering the market on Tibana Gas filtration via commodities market hi-jinks as Rey continues her bizarre mutation into a giant space whale thing that kick-boxes with First Order cruisers. Worse, a resistance agent finds a mysterious man frozen in Carbonite in the depths of the palace of former frontier mobster Jabba on Tatooine. Could this be the real Han Solo? If so, who lead the rebellion to victory on the forest moon of Endor before fathering a sociopathic demon child and then slinking off to become a failed monster smuggler? And why is Luke still staring off into space and mumbling to himself? Is he okay? He doesn't look okay.

Greg 'The old Expanded Universe did its job (keeping the brand alive without really doing anything permanent to the characters)
------------

They killed Chewie. That was pretty permanent. Luke lost a wife, Han and Leila got married, had kids and lost two of them.

That all seemed pretty permanent at the time.

Other than the Chewbacca dying at the beginning of the Vong series, really the Vong series was brutal lost of named character

Most of the other things seem the direction things were pointed at the end of JEDI.

Han and Leia's kids dying was pointed at at the end of Jedi?

Come on guys, please. The old EU was not this rosy continuation people are saying it was. Characters died. Luke had a pretty deep, permanent wound by the last few books, and that's not even mentioning the state of play by the time of the Legacy comics.

Were the characters as split as they were in TFA? No. Jedi were established but there was a clear imperial remnant, that actually, for a time, was in charge of the new republic. The was a melancholy to Han and Leia's marriage as they had lost two children. Luke, while still having his son, had lost his wife. The nature of the force, Especially post NJO was beginning to go off the rails with the whole Abeloth thing and the ever changing explanation of what Jacen's vision actually was and what it meant.

There was a lot of good in the old EU - Thrawn and the X-Wing series being about the best it got, but it had nullified the happy ending of Jedi just as much as TFA did, and in a similar timespan - roughly 40 years

+++++++++

I was generalizing, but yeah, there's that. My point was that the EU creators extrapolated things from the end of JEDI, and then kept them pretty much in the same place. Luke rebuilds the Jedi Order, Han and Leia stay together, Leia goes full-Jedi, and the New Republic sticks around.

James>>but it had nullified the happy ending of Jedi just as much as TFA did, and in a similar timespan - roughly 40 years<<

Just so.  Excellent point.  If the story has to be continued, there still has to be trouble afoot.

If they wanted Rey and Company to have a completely blank slate to play with, they'd have to set it in different era or someplace remote and NOT put Episode VII in the title.

For the record, I'd probably have been fine with that.
