Movie News: Star Wars To Get More Spin-Off Movies
Yesterday, we posted about how Lucasfilms/Disney plans to make a Yoda-centered Star Wars movie. Well it turns out that’s not the only thing that Disney has in the works. According to a report in EW, Disney plans to do a couple of spin-offs in addition to Yoda and the new trilogy. A young Han Solo saga is in the mix that will tell the story of Han’s origin. There will also be the adventure of the famous bounty hunter, Boba Fett, that will also be coming to the big screen.
According to the report, the Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars: A New Hope. It’s obvious that Harrison Ford will no longer be Solo, so who would take the part? At this time there is no current leads.
The Boba Fett film would take place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back. It’s also been reported that it could take place Empire and Return of the Jedi. If you recall, that’s where Fett was last seen plunging into a sarlacc pit. Again, no leads for any actors have been named at this time.
So that leaves at least three spin-off movies as well as the new trilogy that’s coming. If you’re a Star Wars fan, you have to be going crazy right now! It’s Star Wars all over the place! Well we’d like to know your thoughts. Let us know in the comment section below!
