Hello i know this isnt about SWTOR but i do so damn badly want a movie about LUke gronwing up and all other things between Ep III-IV and maybe between IV-V and V-VI
i know that is alot of SW movies but then again im a sucker for SW if i could afford id probably own a Darth Vader costume that would be true to the one in EP V-VI

so anyone else that would like to see these movies?

When I heard there was going to be a Star Wars TV show I was so excited, hoping it'd be between III--IV since Revenge of the Sith ended with a lot of potential.

Instead, more Clone Wars....sigh, as if there wasn't enough of that already. The Separatists keep attacking random "strategically viable" planets and Anakin keeps "risking the dark side" while Palpatine and Padme run around doing pointless political crap.

Oh, and let's not forget, MOAR JAR JAR!

There's a section for discussion Star Wars. why not use that?

I would pay good money to see the "Shatterpoint" novel turned into a movie.

But honestly if they were going to do more movies, the Timothy Zahn "Thrawn" trilogy would be the obvious choice.
Khryn, Rex'sun, Xhiryn, and variations of such.

There is a tv series in the works for that time frame. The thing is it won't focus on any of the main characters from the movies.

What I've read is that currently there are 50 scripts 1 hour long each written.
They're waiting for technology to make filming them more financially feasible.

Last I checked the series now has a working title of Star Wars : Underworld as it's to focus on bounty hunters and smugglers and things like that.

I wouldn't look for the TV series to ever come. It's on indefinite, if not completely canceled, hold.

far as movies go. I'd like to see a trilogy set after RotJ..all the original actors could come back (though Ford will be expensive.)

And while I've enjoyed most of the books I've read. NONE of the EU books need to be made. They're ridiculous...the weakest force-sensitive in the books could destroy the likes of Yoda at his peak in seconds. And we sure as hell don't need any cloned Palpatine (kinda nullifies the whole "anakin being chosen one and bringing balance by destroying the sith" when Palpatine survives) nor do we need Dark Side Luke (again nullifying him avoiding falling in RotJ.) and frankly Luuke is one of the dumbest ideas EVER put into ANY book series, aside from Darth Maul surviving a bottomless pitfall and being cut in half.

no book stuff. dear god no.

Movie about Luke growing up? Sounds boring. What would even happen in it?

Luke and his uncle Owen go to Mos Eisley to buy a new moisture evaporator for their moisture farm. Luke cleans their house because there is sand all over the place. Uncle Owen sells some of whatever he is farming to some Jawas.

I do not see movies or TV shows made anytime soon. However, there are MANY novels available that cover the time frames you are talking about. Just go to and take a look. As a matter of fact there is a young adult novel The Life of Luke Skywalker.

If you are specifically interested in the main characters of E4-6 try the Han Solo trilogy - it covers his growing up on Corellia through his life as a smuggler. As a matter of fact the ending is quirky/funny (won't spoil it here).

There is also a duo of novels from Timothy Zahn the takes place in the aftermath of E4 that "brings back" all the characters from his Thrawn Trilogy called Allegiance and Choices of One.

The fact is that not much happens between E5 and E6 other than what we already know - Luke, Leia, and Lando hatch a plan to recover Han from Jabba the Hutt. There is one novel called Shadows of the Empire that basically covers that six month time frame. A video game of the same name allows you to play the mercenary Dash Rendar.

Yeah, I have been hoping for something that bridges the gap between EIII and EIV. I remember hearing originally when the SW TV show rumors came out that it was going to be about that period and focus on the politics that lead to the rebellion. I thought that story would have been really cool. Supposedly none of the characters from the movies would have been on the show too. That seems to have gone away and now its more clone wars stuff and time travel. But who really knows I guess.

I'd always wanted to see a show either about a Jedi living in exile and/or hiding from the empire. Or a show that focuses on a group of troopers that hunts the remaining Jedi.

I think the Bane trilogy would make for a great set of movies. Lord knows Drew wants a movie deal of some kind.
