The question I have is how do they even make a new Star Wars movie? I mean the Jedi were basically extinct and no new people were being born with the midicloreans or however its spelt that give them powers so how can it be Star Wars with no Jedi? I mean episode 7 should come after 6 right?
I don't know much about the lore and story as I only watched the movies. I love watching sci-fi but hate reading it cause sci-fi books alot of the time are boring so never tried a star wars one. But what I do know from the movies is the Jedi were as I said dying out and no replacements.
I mean I guess nothing in Star Wars name makes it so that it can't be Star Wars without them but when you think of Star Wars isn't Jedi the first thing that comes to mind?
Like a few others said it's not that people were no longer being born force sensitive it's that they were basically illegal under the rule of the Empire. They were generally killed or they simply lived without any idea they were force sensitive. Most force sensitive don't really know they are, they are just more capable in certain ways than normal people (Examples being heightened reflexes, intelligence, etc). That being said; with the death of Palpatine they'd be free again to start training force sensitives as Jedi. I believe the next trilogy is supposed to start ~20 to 30 years after A New Hope so there is plenty of time for Luke to begin a new Jedi Order.
