With all the talk about a new Star Wars film I couldn't help but think of what I'd like to see done and the potential stories that could be made. I know there's a ton of content that could be used from novels and comics and the like but I'm only familiar with the movies.
One of my favorite things about Star Wars and sci-fi in general has always been robots. Don't know why but robot characters have always been so awesome to me. In Star Wars when it comes to droids R2-D2 and C-3P0 come to mind right away. I've always loved these two as they have always been my favorite characters in the films. With a new movie being made though I do wonder about the possibilities of what kind of large scale conflict could drive another trilogy? What kind of hero could we have? But here are the questions that I have for you fine folks.
1. Could a droid serve as the main hero?
2. Do you think they could explore the idea of the possibility of a droid having a soul? Maybe explore what rights does a droid have in the Star Wars universe?
3. What if there could be a possibility just maybe, that a droid could use the force?
Me personally I think these would be awesome ideas! Of course this is just my opinion and you're all welcome to disagree with me as I know this all may sound really silly to many folks but hear me out. What if there could be some heroic droid that was more than just a machine, but was actually alive and even more so, could use the force? Cause in my mind, if a droid could be a force user, that would blow Midi-chlorians out of the equation and in a good way if you ask me.
But I digress, what do you folks think?
