    Matts idea for a new Star Wars movie being about a clone of Darth Vader reminded me of the video game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2.

    In the game you play as Starkiller (a clone of Darth Vaders secret apprentice of the same name) who was created after the first StarKiller died. Anyway, he was created to help Vader overthrow the emperor and rule the galaxy etc. Except he turns good and stops him in the end. Basically what I’m saying is this franchise has done cloning of Jedi/Sith characters before so it isn’t an entirely new concept .

    Also I think a movie about how the Jedi started would be awesome. I imagine it would be about like a small group of force sensitive people who decide to start a small monastary/brotherhood to maintain peace and to persue knowledge of the force. It could delve into and explore some more religious themes and bring back mysticism to the force (never mentioning midichlorians again). And perhaps the government at the time sees it as a threat and tries to squash it out via persecution but it eventually spreads and by the end of the movie (or series of movies) becomes the dominant “religion” of the galaxy and have a presence on all of the planets. It could have a history that parallels the early churches rise and spread. I think if done right it could be a great breath of fresh air. It could even have ‘schisms’ that explain the origin of other sects like the Sith, Grey Jedi’s etc. Anyway that’s just my interpretation of what a Star Wars reboot could look like. Sorry for the long comment and I love your podcast. God Bless!
