From my point of view, Yuuzhan Vongs should be Main Villain on EP.9.

A Dangerous alien species that force Resistance and First Order work together despite their hate each other.

It would have been more original but that book series is kind of bleak compared to what Star Wars usually is so I'm not sure if they could be the villian without the sequel trilogy going through drastic changes that some would call "jarring".

It would be better for them to have their own trilogy.

We don't need to replace one villain that came out of nowhere with an entire villain species out of nowhere, it's worse than Sheev, at least people know who Sheev is.

Good grief, look at them with those dumb snakes in the OP's pic. Not only are they the most tryhard edgelord shit, they're profoundly lame tryhard edgelord shit.

Nah. Mess as Ep. 9 was, the audience understands Palpatine immediately. Introducing a force like the Yuuzhan Vong at the last second makes them meaningless.

how could it possibly be “original” to adopt a book

There is a lot of good ideas they could have took from the EU, a lot of them are better than Empire & Palpatine again, it's a shame Lucasfilm isn't as respectful of their universe as Marvel. This might have been good if done right.

I mean, if they had that planned from the start of filming first movie...along with, yunno, an entire outline of the beginning, middle, and end without simply aping most of the broad strokes of the Original Trilogy, I'm pretty sure that the Vongs, or Palpatine, or fucking Lando Calrissian could have turned out to be better villains in much better movies.

I think a more powerful enemy that required the rebels and empire to team up against was the logical place for the story to go, if you're trying to raise the stakes.

It didn't necessarily have to be the Yuuzhan Vong though.

in the gist ST should've just cribbed from the EU. like even if it was some stenographed 'safe' reworking of the thrawn trilogy i'd be way happier with the end result probably

It's bad enough that Lucasfilm is digging up every napkin sketch Ralph McQuarrie did decades ago, the last thing we need is to start pawing through the old EU trashpile for ideas too.

why, Marvel takes crap like Civil War and turns them into successes, SWs can do it.

And they already are digging through the old EU, haven't you heard Thrawn is back and Revan is canon again.

There's a reason they call the old EU as 'legends'. It's so they can mine it for characters and ideas, while saying their representations in the old canon were just exaggerations or misunderstandings. It's how they justify bringing back Thrawn etc. or even bringing Palpatine back with cloning and spirit transfer shit. This is all old material. Hell, Han and Leia's son went evil in the old canon as well.

You can't have the Vong be the baddies of the third part of a trilogy. They need their own room to breathe.

Should have had Luke and Mara. Their kid and the Solo Twins. And then have the actual Sith show up. Jacen Solo goes dark side maybe.

not an exact adaptation of the books but something close.

to fucking late now

The key word I used was trashpile. I know full well they've been bringing back old EU ideas, but some of them were meant to be left behind.

Thawn - good!
Clone Emperor and the superweapon bonanza - eehhhh...
Vong - NO.
