The Star Wars prequels weren’t exactly well-received by fans of the franchise, with many irked by a variety of plot points in those first three episodes. Well Jimmy Kimmel has a great idea for how J.J. Abrams can avoid that problem this time around – take ideas directly from the fans. Now we’d suggest that if he’s going to take fan ideas, Abrams should go look no further than one Patton Oswalt. But sadly with Patton not around, Kimmel instead pointed J.J. in the direction of his studio audience.

The Star Wars prequels weren’t exactly well-received by fans of the franchise, with many irked by a variety of plot points in those first three episodes. Well Jimmy Kimmel has a great idea for how J.J. Abrams can avoid that problem this time around – take ideas directly from the fans. Now we’d suggest that if he’s going to take fan ideas, Abrams should go look no further than one Patton Oswalt. But sadly with Patton not around, Kimmel instead pointed J.J. in the direction of his studio audience.

One man dressed up as a jedi would like there to be a part in the new movie where Luke Skywalker fights someone with a lightsaber, and “also Princess Leia and Chewbacca should totally do it.” Okay, so these audience members were comic plants, but we did particularly enjoy the thoughts of one audience plant. “The next Star Wars... nothing but Lando,” said Billy Dee Williams himself. That’s pretty awesome, and while we think we can safely assume that Lando will be back again in some capacity, we also don’t think it would be the worst idea to give the character his own movie either.

You can watch the entire segment below, and to top things off the final audience member is none other than William Shatner, giving Abrams his thoughts on how he could cross the Star Trek and Star Wars universes. It basically involves putting Kirk into Star Wars. We’re not sure Chris Pine really needs the work.
