Star Wars Spinoff Movies Confirmed
« on: February 05, 2013, 08:04:11 PM »
So for a few months now we knew that Disney was working on a Sequel Trilogy (with Michael Arndt and J.J. Abrams attached to Episode VII as writer and director, respectively) but today Disney officially announced that they are working on spinoff films as well. There have been rumors of a few of these movies over the past few weeks, including a remake of Seven Samurai, a film starring Yoda, and maybe even a movie about Jabba The Hut! While we have no clue if any of these films will ever happen, today we learned that two standalone films will be written by Lawrence Kasdan (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes, Mr. and Mrs. Smith). These films are set to be released some time after the release of the much anticipated Star Wars Episode VII.

Here is the official article!



Just to keep all of the information in one place, here are all of the projects that have been rumored:

Seven Samurai remake
Yoda
Jabba the Hut
Han Solo
Boba Fett
Knights of the Old Republic

And Ewan McGreor has also expressed interest in doing an Obi-Wan Kenobi film.

And according to Entertainment Weekly, the two films are going to be about Han Solo and Boba Fett.

Disney is, however, just throwing around ideas. So Han and Boba aren't necessarily the two films:

I'd be very open for a Boba Fett film (especially of Joe Johnston directs it), but it'd be hard to imagine anyone other than Ford playing Han Solo.

If they ever decide to do an Obi-Wan movie, or just simply want to include Obi-Wan in another film, its awesome to know that McGregor would be up for it!

James Earl Jones would love to return to Star Wars:

http://www.theage.com.au/entertainment/movies/jones-would-love-to-return-to-star-wars-20130301-2fbbf.html

Posted this here rather than in the VII, VIII, and IX thread because, as of Episode VI, Vader is kind of dead ;) But a film set between III and IV about his Jedi hunt could be cool to see.

And in other news, it seems like Temuera Morrison would like to play Boba Fett. That would be awesome 8)

Could Pixar be making a Star Wars film?

http://latino-review.com/2014/01/pixar-joining-star-wars-universe/

If true, I think that could potentially be really interesting. One of the more intriguing rumors as of late, if you ask me. It'd also be really fitting, seeing as Pixar got their start at Lucasfilm.

If this guy is a legitimate source, the first spin-off may have been pushed from 2016 to 2017.
