I saw the first trailer for the new Star Wars film that comes out next year and I am pleasantly surprised with how it looks so far.  Because Disney rebooted the entire Expanded Universe, we do not know what to expect, but because I am such a devout Star Wars fan my mind is overflowing with different theories about what might happen.  For example, I have a few theories about this mysterious new villain. Because Disney rebooted the entire Expanded Universe, we do not know whether or not the Sith truly died with Vader and the Emperor. I believe like The Force Unleashed, either Vader or the Emperor could have had a secret apprentice that survived the Battle of Endor. I heard rumors that the Inquisitor from Rebels may have some connection to this villain, so maybe he was trained by the Inquisitor. Another theory revolves around Darth Maul, whose ultimate fate remains a mystery as a result of the Son of Dathomir comics. Sure, Sidious killed Maul’s apprentice and destroyed his power base, but over fifty years have passed since then so that would be plenty of time for Darth Maul to train a new apprentice and rebuild his power base.  This one of many theories I have in mind and I am looking forward to hearing more information about this film.


  1. It will definitely be interesting to see how this story unfolds. I for one had wished for a Thrawn storyline from a modified EU. I don’t think they’ll involve Maul and face the possibility of usurping Vader’s name. I think it’ll tie to him.

  2. Hi Grady, thank you for following 🙂 I follow you back 🙂 It’s very interesting to read each of your article ! I will keep checking your page 🙂

  3. Having just ‘killed’ the Emperor in Star Wars: The Old Republic MMORPG – set 3000 years before the movies. Seems that Sith are tough to kill and the Emperor certainly had plenty of apprentices back then… even Children of the Emperor. Seeds for sequels can be sown in subtle ways and sure there are a few buried in the movies if you delve right.

  4. Also, just because a man has a red lightsaber doesnt necessarily mean he is evil and/or sith. Truly the possibilities are endless by wiping away the expanded universe. If only they could wipe away the prequels.
