In my opinion, the sequel trilogy was pretty much screwed regardless of how Episode IX turned out, courtesy of the unoriginality and cash-grabbishness of The Force Awakens and the trashfire that was The Last Jedi. Apparently, however, Episode IX could have been something entirely different, heavily centered around Coruscant and the population's uprising against the First Order.

This would have been an interesting scenario for something that is rarely (if ever) featured in the franchise: urban warfare, let alone in a city as absolutely massive as Coruscant.

In my overactive brainstorms, I thought of several epic scenes that could have awed audiences without obliterating the logic of the plot (looking at you, Holdo Maneuver). For example:

- Entire skyscrapers lighting up with blaster fire and/or toppling over.

- Literal billions of militia members and Stormtroopers getting so bogged down with each other in packed streets that many resort to fist fighting and other violent brawls.

- An AT-AT on a large and open road getting ambushed and T-boned at full speed by an old HAVw A6 Juggernaut, the suddenly dwarfed walker getting explosively crushed between the massive wheeled vehicle and a building.
