GAZE INTO THE FACE OF SEVERE MULLET LEIA!

I’m sure that look will replace her ‘slave’ variant at Comicon soon enough.  Either way, it seems that even the most casual Star Wars knows that there are already a number of stories designed to be the (unofficial/non-canonical) future of the Star Wars universe, from Dark Empire to Legacy and back.  (Of course, since they are living ‘long, long ago in ‘a blah blah blah fishcakes, we ARE the future of Star Wars.)  Even so, there have been a number of attempts to chronicle what happens after the Battle of Endor and the death of Emperor Platypus.  Most have been somewhat hampered by slavish devotion to either continuity or the Skywalker bloodline, but some of them have been relatively successful at recapturing the magic inherent in the summer of ’77.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced “Shee-Zoar”) is also known for the Flinstone Flop, but never lets the beat…

 

…DRRRRROP, asking:  Should Disney use one of the several already-existing storyline futures of Star Wars to relaunch the proposed Episodes VII, VIII and IX?  If so, which one would work best?
