This new era of Star Wars not only introduced us to a brand new trilogy of numbered films, but also the series of standalone Anthology films. The Anthology series, or "A Star Wars Story" films, present seemingly endless possibilities for what a Star Wars film could be. Rogue One and the still untitled young Han Solo film are already proving to be vastly different from what we've seen before, and there's already talk of what the next slate of films could be.
It appears that even J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, has his own ideas about what would make a great standalone Star Wars film. In a recent interview with Collider, while promoting his latest film, Star Trek Beyond, Abrams was what kind of Anthology film he would like to see in the future. His response is very intriguing:
“I gotta say Kathy Kennedy, who’s running it all, she seems to be pushing all the right buttons. There isn’t something that I’d love to see—I guess the one thing I would say is there’s a Knights of Ren story that I think would be pretty cool to tell.”
It sounds like this is not just a pipe dream on J.J.'s part. Being one the creators behind the Knights of Ren and the entire Sequel Trilogy, I'm sure he has a specific idea in mind. The mysterious knights, which are said to be led by Kylo Ren, are a story element that was barely touched on in The Force Awakens. It would be incredibly interesting to learn more about them, not just through the upcoming saga films, but via their own Anthology film.
Would you like to see a film focused on the Knights Of Ren? Would you, perhaps, want to see J.J. Abrams return to direct such a film? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
