Star Wars has gone through so many different variations it’s a surprise that the movies even exist in the first place. But where else could Star Wars have gone? When Disney eventually turns its Sauron-esque eye, full of multiverse malice, towards Star Wars, where might the series one day go? Could Luke Force-walk to another universe and meet the version of himself who bested Darth Vader to a kyber crystal with Leia, the galactic rebellion long since ended? Could he meet a Chewbacca who looks just like so messed up? 

From Legends to Disney’s Lucasfilm attempting and failing to figure out how to make a blockbuster media franchise by the seat of your pants while switching directors every single film, to George Lucas just kinda being a wild dude who wrote a bunch of stuff, here are all the different directions that Star Wars could’ve gone, all the other stories that could’ve played out.
