Fantasising and dreaming up precisely what will unfold in just about any big or small screen franchise offering has become an inescapable and often rather enjoyable part of life as a fan of sprawling universe content in recent years. And in the galaxy far, far away, Force-sensitive fans have never been lost for ideas as to what the future will hold for their favourite Jedi, Sith, and rebellious faces in the coming years.
