STAR WARS Spin-Off Films Will be Origin Stories
There's still so much that we don't know about the upcoming Star Wars films that Disney and Lucasfilm are developing. We know we're getting a new trilogy and that there will be a bunch of stand alone films that will be release throughout the years. It's been rumored that some of those movie will focus on Han Solo, Yoda and Boba Fett, but of course there's going to be so much more. We now know that the spin-off movie they plan on making will be origin films.
The news comes from Variety when reporting on the Disney investor conference. Chief financial officer Jay Rasulo said that a “origin story film” would be released every year starting with Star Wars: Episode VII. Right now Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are currently developing some of these stand alone movies, and it will be interesting to see what the first one is going to be. I personally think it's going to be either Han Solo or Boba Fett because they are two of the most popular characters in the Star Wars universe. We'll eventually see origin films for several different characters, but I'm most excited for those two.
I think a lot of us assumed that the spin-off movies would be origin stories, but now we have that confirmation. Rasulo went on the say about the Star Wars universe, "The sky’s the limit. There’s incredible flexibility. It’s an unbelievable palette to create from."
