When The Book of Boba Fett was released, fans finally found out how Boba survived his fall into the Sarlacc Pit. This story explored what made him a character fans love so much. Though Boba had few lines of dialogue, his design and onscreen presence were enough to win audiences over. Since then, fans have been asking if it was possible for a TV series about this bounty hunter with such an amazing backstory behind him. We recognize that Boba may be one of their favorites but Star Wars has existed as a big galaxy ever since A New Hope was released in 1977. That being said, these are the 5 Star Wars characters who should have gotten a show as well –
High Republic takes place roughly three hundred years before the events of A New Hope. The Jedi’s numbers are dwindling, but they’re still powerful. By contrast, the Sith are thought to have been extinct for about a thousand years. Similar comic book series like Light of the Jedi, offer glimpses into this previously unexplored era. It would be terrific to get more depictions of Yoda during this period. For 900-year-old master Jedi like Yoda, there isn’t much known about his earlier life.
Stormtroopers are some of the most talked-about in the Star Wars universe. Although almost unanimously vilified for their role in the Galactic Civil War, nobody fully understands what life is like as a stormtrooper. There is some interesting information to be mined from their pasts. One idea would be to build a TV series around the clones from Attack of the Clones. These stories will give us a great insight into their everyday lives and how they work alongside other major characters from the saga.
She had small roles in the original trilogy but her character is more pivotal than some might have realized. Books like The Labyrinth of Evil contain scenes and stand-ins for the early stages of rebellion against Chancellor Palpatine. She was part of an anti-Palpatine force not long before what would become known as the Rebellion began. In light of Rogue One, a spinoff TV series that explores how rebel cells arose could also elaborate upon her character.
All original trilogy characters starring in a new Star Wars series would need to be recast. In Solo: A Star Wars Story, fans weren’t happy with the casting of Han. The Book Of Boba Fett has proved that CGI facial replacement options are realistic. Leia Organa is an amazing character and readers will learn more about her in Legends novels like Razor’s Edge and Bloodline. A TV series after Return Of The Jedi could explore how she helps to found the New Republic.
Sometimes, too much of a good thing can be bad at the same time. On one hand, we have Darth Vader is one of the darkest Sith Lords in George Lucas’ Star Wars movies who was portrayed by the legendary James Earl Jones and then later brought back to life again by none other than Hayden Christensen so we could experience his darkest days in the prequels. On the other hand, there is a lot more that has happened in various non-canonical Star Wars books that could either be re-written into canon or explored further on-screen which could give us an idea of how things were after Order 66 took place where all Jedi were considered traitors to be killed without mercy.
