Refuse to write another word until J.J. Abrams was forcibly removed from the backlot :P

Seriously, though, I would honor the original trilogy by creating worlds that feel lived in, and characters that feel alive. I'd write a space opera about fathers and sons, and about the heavy burden of heroism.

I'd write all the major players of IV through VI into it. Luke, a member of the reconstituted Jedi Council, Leia a leading politician, Han a reluctant tactician for the New Republic navy, Lando a real estate magnate on Coruscant. But I would make the story arc about a younger generation.

I might take a page from The Legend of Korra and focus the first movie around growing tensions between Force sensitive individuals and the general public.

Open up google to find Star Wars wikis, look up what happens and build a story around it, where details are not present.
i thought the story is "fixed"?

I'd be hopelessly lost because I barely know anything about Star Wars

 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

If I did it, it would suck. You know why? Because it's Star Wars and no matter what people will hate it at this point because they're expectations are beyond anything. Notice I said expectations, not hopes. Impossible to please always leads to disappointment. Disappointment leads to hate. Hate leads to the dark side of fandom ...

Politics in Star Wars isn't the problem. Lucas just refuses to believe he sucks at writing it because politics is always some etherial, distant concept to him. In fiction, it MUST convey immediate emotional jeopardy to the characters.

Ten years after the battle of Endor, the Alliance's control of the galaxy is already struggling. People forgot how to live under democracy under the Empire's rule, and now that they have it they regularly vote for only their own interests, rather than the interests of the galaxy as a whole. The galaxy is already edging towards a civil war which will be significantly more destructive than the war against the Empire ever was.

The movie begins with several students in the Jedi Academy, who at first do not get along because of their different viewpoints and backgrounds, but as the movie progresses the missions they are assigned slowly turn from disciplining and controlling criminals to increasingly gray areas. Finally, after stealing weapons from private citizens, it's revealed the Jedi Academy is in cahoots with Alliance officials. Everyone can see the upcoming civil war. Their increasingly desperate attempts to avert or delay it force them to ask worse and worse things of the students.

The last third of the movie goes VERY dark, with several unquestionably immoral decisions forcing the Jedi Academy into a schism just as the civil war hits. The main characters are shuffled and split every which way and turned against each other.

There would be a lot of angry nerds in the world that's for sure.

"Games are a trigger for adults to again become primitive, primal, as a way of thinking and remembering. An adult is a child who has more ethics and morals, that's all. When I am a child, creating, I am not creating a game. I am in the game. The game is not for children, it is for me. It is for an adult who still has a character of a child."

Just off the top of my head

- I'd give Luke a son, but he's not a Jedi, he decided just to be "just a civilian" basically and Luke was OK with that. During the course of the story though he may be pushed into action.

- I'd include a character that dabbled with the Dark Side and fringe elements of the Force, but ultimately rejected it and is now a regular Jedi. Idris Elba would be my choice for this character, I think he'd be interesting. He's a "good guy" just with shades of grey. He's kind of an "out there" character as part of his back story was he was drifting/lost in space for decades. 

- Luke has strived to keep the details about Darth Vader (most notably that he was Luke's father ... someone who commited all sorts of war crimes) under wraps, but it leaks and Luke is forced to step down as head of the New Jedi Council.

- Han has a story arc with his daughter and Lando exploring the organized crime/underground world of Star Wars. They're working to get Luke out of trouble and find out what's really happening.

- There seems to be an "architect" type villainous force ... think The Joker in The Dark Knight Returns, without the crazy persona, someone cold and calculating and suddenly the galaxy is rocked by chaos and scandal.

- The New Jedi Order isn't as stiff or uptight as the old Jedi Order, per the way Luke has set it up.

I rather like this one. It runs with themes that are popular in good movies today and strikes a balance on nostalgia and originality which I feel will be critical for whatever Lucasfilm actually cooks up.

Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

I'd make episode 7 adults only and start it off with the galaxy being saved, but the people still living have to repopulate the galaxy. There would be like five wookie on wookie scenes.
