It would be nice to rescue Chewie from the bullshit of the Clone Wars. Same with Boba Fett, though technically it was his dad I guess. Don't really care about Lando, if they do a Solo story they can include him in that.

I'm looking forward to a Yoda story. That might really be cool.

A standalone Yoda movie sounds like a bad idea to me.

Too much CGI, and I don't think he can carry a movie all by himself whatsoever. Same with Chewbacca.

Now Boba Fett and Han Solo, yes. And I'd argue that after they each do their own movie, they should do a movie together.

At some point a Rogue Squadron movie would be ****ing awesome.

Yoda is interesting because there really is no complete origin story that I know of. They will have to be careful that the cgi doesn't get all cheesy.

There are three books dedicated to Solo's backstory in the expanded universe books that are all very good. They explain how he paired up with Chewie and why Jabba was after him. The books also cover the "Kessel Run" that Han talks about in the movies. I am not sure if they would go that direction, but it wouldn't be a bad way to go.

Chewie should be in the Han Solo movie naturally. If for no other reason than to give Peter Mayhew another payday, assuming he can still get around enough.

I am hoping they step into the expanded universe eventually and open up characters like Darth Bane and Grand Admiral Thrawn. You could even do some post-RotJ Rogue Squadron stuff with Wedge.

I'm honestly hoping for an animated Shadows of the Empire movie, with the original cast voicing their characters. It would kick ass and make money for sure.

Quote:
Star Wars fans, admit it: you like scoundrels. And you’re about to get more of them in your life.

Yesterday, The Walt Disney Co. unveiled plans to make a number of spin-off movies set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away — in addition to the post-Return of the Jedi trilogy that had already been announced

Entertainment Weekly has learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum.

Sources close to the projects confirmed this was the direction the development was taking, although they cautioned it’s still very early in the process and, well, the deal could always be altered futher. Lucasfilm and Disney declined to comment on the information.

The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original.

The Boba Fett film would take place either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between Empire and Jedi, where the bounty hunter was last seen plunging unceremoniously into a sarlacc pit. Exactly who would play him isn’t much of a complication – in the original trilogy, he never took off his helmet. And in the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original stormtrooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who’s still the right age for the part if his services were required.

In addition to bringing back two fan-favorite characters as the leads of their own films, the Han Solo and Boba Fett projects would also allow Darth Vader, in full-on black death-metal gear, to return as a villain, since placing the spin-offs within the original trilogy would mean he is still alive and hissing. That timeline would also open the door for a return from visit with everyone’s favorite degenerate slug-like gangster, Jabba the Hutt.

Walt Disney Co. chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced the existence of spin-off plans yesterday as part of the company’s quarterly earnings report. He said the screenwriters working of the stand-alone films are Simon Kinberg (Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Sherlock Holmes) and Lawrence Kasdan (screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark and the filmmaker behind The Big Chill.)

The pair are also involved in the drafting of the new trilogy, with Michael Arndt (Little Miss Sunshine, Toy Story 3) penning the first of the series, which J. J. Abrams has agreed to direct. That film is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.

There is no indication who might direct the Boba Fett and Han Solo films if they end up coming to fruition. Joe Johnston, director of Captain America and The Rocketeer, originally designed the armor for Boba Fett and told Screenrant he would like to make a film based around the character. Recently, Robert Rodriguez told MTV he would jump at the chance to make a Han Solo film if it were offered to him — although that seemed more like casual interest than a serious proposal.

The recent novel Scoundrels, by sci-fi author Timothy Zahn, focused on the exploits of Solo in the period between A New Hope and Empire as he set up an Ocean’s 11-type heist of a gangster’s fortune. But sources said it was not the basis for any film currently in the works.

As for other spin-offs, Ain’t It Cool reported Monday that a Yoda-centric film may be in the works, and earlier last month Vulture reported Zack Snyder may create a Seven Samurai-inspired Star Wars spin-off, although the filmmaker later said that was untrue.

Lucasfilm has ramped up its development in recent months under the new leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, who stepped in as co-chair of the company as Star Wars creator George Lucas stepped back and sold the company to the Walt Disney Co.

Kennedy, who has her eighth nomination for the Best Picture Oscar this year as producer of Lincoln, has a long track record of making films that strike a nerve with the original Star Wars generation, among them E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and everything from Gremlins to The Goonies and the Back to the Future movies.

The question now: If these films do happen, who would you cast as a young Han Solo – or should they cast someone as relatively unknown as Ford once was?

John Noble possibly up for a role as Ep 7's main villain (far-fetched rumor but this would be awesome...):
Quote:
This is sketchy - basically just the word of one Radio show host - but we haven't had any casting rumors for Star Wars Episode VII yet so what the Hell! On morning radio (Fox FM) in Melbourne Australia, the hosts were discussing yesterday's confirmation of the standalone Star Wars movies when one of them (Jo) said she "has it on very good authority that Aussie actor John Noble will be appearing as the villain". The other host, Matt, queried this but she remained adamant, saying this was definitely for Episode VII and not for one of the standalone movies, before offering to make a friendly wager on the matter. Obviously we have no way of knowing if this is true, and our definition of "good authority" may differ quite a bit from Jo's here, but you never know. Noble did work on the J.J Abrams created tv show Fringe - but of course that could also just be where the (rather lazy) link was made for the rumor to spring from. If it did turn out to be true and he was to play the villain, how would it go down with you guys? Thanks to Natalia Romanov for the heads up.

John Noble looks like he has an Imperial Officer face if I ever saw one.



But he'd make a great Sith Lord, too...

The Han Solo movie would be an origin story of the infamous smuggler, and would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, so it’s doubtful Harrison Ford would be making an appearance in the spin-off (Then again, if Sir Alec Guinness can appear in hologram form in The Phantom Menace, who knows what is possible).

Boba Fett’s film would take place at a slightly later time, either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between the latter and Return of the Jedi (where we last lost our intrepid bounty hunter falling into the mouth of a Sarlacc). Casting him would not be a huge problem, as he presumably never removes his helmet.

Setting the two spin-off movies in the time of the original trilogy means the door is open for an appearance, or multiple ones, of everyone’s favorite Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
Also these assholes better not use Temeura Morrison as Boba Fett's voice. That was the worst ****ing thing ever.
