I don't care if they have anyone from the Sith order as long as they have a powerful darkside user as an antagonist for the hero Lightside user. I've read almost all of the EU and enjoyed it very much but I feel like the new movies are gonna be a big change to the EU lore, but im still hoping for Luke to have a kid that is a powerful light side user and Leia to have a kid that turns to the Darkside.
New Gear is the ONLY type of character progression at endgame. Raiders are not the only ones who want to continue to progress their toons throughout an expansion. Im a bad bad speller.

The Sith cannot return as a dominant force without ruining the meaning and importance of Vader's redemption and Palpatine's death.

Unless they go the galaxy-wide invasion route (Yuuzhan Vong style), they will have to make the scope of this trilogy a little smaller. Maybe they have to defeat the re-grouped remnants of the Empire, or maybe the Mandalorians start a conquest in the wake of the recently overthrown government. Those scenarios could satisfy the "Wars" in "Star Wars", but that doesn't solve everything. There HAVE to be lightsaber battles, with red lightsabers in the hands of the antagonist(s), otherwise Disney can kiss their profits goodbye.

I feel like dark Jedi would work... or just basic dark-side users. But Sith and Sith code should die with Palps, just like the old Jedi order was wiped out without record. Seems only fair.

I'd go with immediately after FOTJ myself. That enables Luke/Leia/Han to be appropriately aged and is set up to have sith. Now which sith? I'd go with Krayt's crew. Much more visual characters for a movie.

And yes, i've been wanting to throw away the Legacy comic series for a long time. I hate having the future set in stone. Always in motion the future is and Legacy needs to become an alternate path that didn't happen.

It's all speculation at this point. At its crux, Star Wars is about Good vs Evil. Good vs Evil, not Glowbat color. So, as long as that is appeased - it'll be a good Star Wars trilogy. My hope and prayer is that they'll keep it simple, not go the Lucas route and try to squeeze as many glowbats on the screen as possible.

But, it's Disney.

What was wrong with the Vong. Star Wars was at the point where they needed a post ROTJ cast of villains that weren't the Empire [again? really?] and Sith [legacy of the force showed how played out post ROTJ sith are] The vong filled that slot just fine.

Dont think you understand how the force and balance works. There will always be sith and jedi even if one of them get all wiped out.The force wull draw in force user to each side, as in the will of the force of things.
Sidious did only bring the force out of balance, and Anakin got the force balanced again.
Balance is as easy as 50/50 you can say.And what you call dark jedi are the ones who turn into sith, dont you know the lore ? star wars cant work without the fight between light and dark.Other enemies for thee most part are just boring.

The basic tenent within the Star Wars universe is that there is no light without darkness. A new order will arise. A reborn Sith or some other organization will fill the needs of the Darkside. The pendulum swings. The prophesy of Anakin bringing the Force into balance is the elimination of the two most powerful Force users. Yoda is chased into hiding until his death and Palpatine is killed by his hand. It is this stark contrast of black and white that made GL edit in Greedo shooting first.

If you want to use the EU, both orders have been destroyed and manage to reform. There was the Dai Bendu, the Je'daii, the Old Jedi Order, and the New Jedi order. From the Je'daii the True Dark Sons of Tython were born. From there the Sith Empire, the New Sith Empire, the Brotherhood of Darkness, the Galactic Empire, and argueably the One Sith.

It will no doubt be a Force based enemy. The extragalactic enemy doesn't fit within the basic tenant of darkness and light. Well unless the extragalactic invaders are Darksiders of some sort, but that doesn't feel quite right. The darkness always seems to come from within and then it is challenged and defeated. It's the personal conquest of self. Star Wars is the personification of the inner struggle within us all. Why do you think we take this stuff so seriously? It resonates with us in a subconscious way.

That is why WE are the Star Wars universe.
It's amazing how loud a dollar can be.

I do not see how they cannot draw some of the story line of the new sequels from books already published. I would hope that the three sequels conclude before the Yuuzhan Vong War, too dark a period for younger fans and Disney imho. So far as Sith or Dark Side Jedi, they always makes things interesting.
