Hot Topic: What do you want from the Star Wars Anthology movies?

Last week didn't just bring us the excitement of the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We now also know the basics of the plot for Rogue One, the first in the Star Wars Anthology Series: set between Episodes III and IV, Gareth Edwards’s film will centre on a band of resistance fighters on a mission to steal the plans for the Death Star.

But the story of the second in the series – recently revealed to no longer be directed by Chronicle’s Josh Trank – is still under wraps. And what about future instalments? There were rumours circulating that The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi co-writer Lawrence Kasdan would write a Boba Fett movie. And surely this is a series that will run and run…

We’d like to know what you’d like to see in future standalone Star Wars movies. Are there any plot gaps you’d particularly like to see filled, continuity glitches you’re desperate to have patched, or favourite characters you’d like to see more of? What sort of tone would you like to see: maybe you’ve had your fill of dark and gritty lately, and are ready for a Star Wars romcom? Are you the one person in the galaxy keeping everything crossed for a Jar-Jar Binks: The Early Years prequel?

Drop us a lone to share your ideas – or tell us whether you're excited about the premise of Rogue One – and you could be immortalised in the letters pages of issue 262 of SFX, on sale Wednesday 27 May.
