What plot ideas do any of you geeks have for the three sequels?

Disney's moving fast; Frank Marshall says they've narrowed the director search down to a couple of people already:    You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Not really a plot idea but I fully expect to see Luke rebuilding the Jedi council, complete with new rules concerning having a family etc.

I'd still love to see the Jedi trials and the making of a lightsaber.

Love this -

At these talks, Arndt always tells attendees that Star Wars’ enduring appeal has to do with resolving its protagonists goals’ nearly simultaneously, at the climax of the movie. In the comments section of a discussion about a Star Wars talk Arndt gave at the Austin Film Festival in 2010, one attendee of the seminar notes, "Arndt stated that if a writer could resolve the story's arcs (internal, external, philosophical) immediately after the Moment of Despair at the climax, he or she would deliver the Insanely Great Ending and put the audience in a euphoric state. The faster it could happen, the better. By [Arndt’s] reckoning, George Lucas hit those three marks at the climax of Star Wars within a space of 22 seconds."

Indeed, in the third act of Star Wars, as Arndt explained to his young screenwriting Padawans at the 2009 Hawaii Writers Conference, its central characters' main goals all are met on pages 89 through 91 of the original Lucas script: At the crescendo of Star Wars, a spectral Obi Wan urges, “Use the Force, Luke,” and he does, thus reaching his inner goal (fighting self-doubt to become a hero). Han Solo reappears (meeting the philosophical goal of overcoming selfishness with altruism) to shoot down Darth Vader, which allows Luke to use the Force to mentally guide his shot and blow up the Death Star (outer goal and inner goals simultaneously met).

But didn't the Empire fall at the end of ROTJ?

supposedly (I didn't see the actual video clip), Kathleen Kennedy wants someone with prior SW history to do Episode VII; Joe Johnston, perhaps?

Yes, but during the Empire's rise to power the Jedi were hunted and killed or forced into exile, thus destroying the Jedi Order etc

So following the defeat of the Empire/Sith I fully expect Luke to have brought the council back, to work alongside the new Republic.

Lot of people are thinking Joe Johnstone, he's a solid choice.

Fincher worked on Jedi!

It has been decapitated for sure, but much of the infrastructure still stands, and high ranking officers still controll significant numbers of ships and troops. Holding together an empire requires greater armed forces than holding together a democratic federal republic, so remaining imperial forces probably remaining on duty across the galaxy, if their commanding offcer is strong enough. They'll either surrender or try and grasp local power and create their own interstellar latifundia. The rebels have to rebuild the republic through diplomatic efforts based on trust that take more time than an invasion/occupation tactic. Also this redistribution of power will create a thousand new interest-groups who all want to come out winners locally...

There are many stories left under the rubbles of the empire, so while I don't think we need to hear them, we could get some good ones with a decent group of writers.

Joe Johnstone would be a good choice. The Rocketeer is a fine film. I liked Captain America too.
