something like this needs to happen. I'm tired of there being no crazy big reveal. Everyone is so afraid that the internet is going to guess the twist before the writers write it they're writing NOTHING. Sure, a million will say "we saw it coming" but dang, it's better than Character A really isn't related to character B and character C from either the EU or the original trilogy isn't going to be in this year's flick.
Take a page from the Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels cartoons. Thrawn and Asokah are awesome, use them.
