A fresh viewing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens really got me thinking of the events transcribed before TFA. There are some fascinating stories to be told in one form or another, so in no particular order, here’s my top 5 list of stories from TFA that I’d like to see further explored.
5. Han Losing the Falcon
The Falcon is Han’s pride and joy so I can only imagine the incredible circumstances that led to him losing it. He seems familiar enough with Jakku, so perhaps there’s some connection to Rey being left on the planet and Han’s loss of the Falcon?
4. Lor San Tekka’s Travels/Getting the Map
This guy sounds like he’s lead an interesting life. He obviously knows the Skywalker clan and is a huge advocate of the force. I’d love to hear more about his travels and how he actually got that map that to Ahch-to.
3. Snap Wexley’s Path to the Resistance
We meet Temmin, aka Snap, in Aftermath and he doesn’t seem overly excited to follow in his mother’s footsteps as a Rebel pilot. So, I’d like to know what changed for him and compelled him to join the Resistance. Also, does he still have Mr. Bones?
2. Finn Being Taken From his Family
I’m very curious to find out more about the First Order’s process of attaining Storm Troopers. Do the families have a choice? Are they compensated? And of course, who is Finn’s family? A story about Finn’s entrance into the First Order could answer all of these questions.
1. Maz Getting Luke’s Lightsaber
When Han asks Maz how she got Luke’s saber, she says, “That is a good question…for another time.” So, how did she get it? It’s impossible to say at this point, but I’m sure the Force and her numerous connections play a part!
The Star Wars universe is rich with stories to be told and we are fortunate to have so many mediums for them to be told through. These are a few of the stories I’d like to be told someday, how about you? Let us know what Star Wars stories you’d like hear more about in the comments or on social media!
