Would each spinoff have its own trilogy?  It just wouldn't be Star Wars without it!

Maybe each spin-off could lead into the next, thus making a trilogy?

I like the Fett and Solo concepts.  If they go this route, I hope they focus on stand alone films vs. trying to stretch each into it's own trilogy.  That's just too much of a good thing.

A Han Solo focused movie?  As well as a Boba Fett movie?  It seems like Disney/LFL is looking to really capitalize on a pair of the most popular OT characters.

The Han Solo idea has potential.  But how faithful will the film be to some of Han's established backstory?  Do they continue on with his defection from the Empire?  What about the freeing of Chewbacca?  And then there's the relationship between Han Solo and Lando, as well as the origins of the Millenium Falcon.

As for the Boba Fett movie?  That's likely to be a pure free for all.  I'd like to see Jabba in that story, and perhaps some of the other bounty hunters.  Aside from that?  This looks like a calculated move to draw in the fanboys.

Maybe a Rystall hook up as well?

Aayla Secura will have her own series if it's all about Fanboys.  That'd be money in the bank.

The "spoim bank" that is!

Allow me to be the first to say: no one can play Han Solo but Harrison Ford. He owns that role...anyone else would fall terribly short, IMO. For that reason alone they should have avoided this one.

Boba and Yoda are fine because there really are no humans associated to those iconic roles.

Also, I think at this point it starts to become a legitimate concern that they are going to overkill with all these movies and projects. I would prefer less, and better.

The trouble with a Han Solo movie is definitely the casting.  How do you do that and do justice to the character that Harrison Ford established?  An animated feature makes sense if you absolutely want Harrison Ford involved with the project.  And Lucasfilm DOES have an animation group.

A live action Han Solo movie would be more challenging on the casting front.  Do you cast an established star or an unknown?  Or do you try to de-age Harrison Ford via special effects?

As for a Boba Fett project, the boundaries seems far more open.  I think since establishing Temuera Morrison as Jango Fett and the older clones in Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith (and voicing Boba Fett in the DVD version of TESB), it would make sense to have him play Boba Fett.  And considering the previous rumors of Zach Snyder being involved in a Star Wars project, I could really see him doing something great with a Boba Fett film.

I fully agree with this, my only concern is that Disney would look at Temuera and think 'no way we can have him play the character and expect a big box office draw, whether it's SW or not.'  If they did have a moment of clarity and allowed him to play BF and keep the continuity between the films, then I would expect that there would be some big names also associated with the film in order to get the draw they would want from a SW film.

I'd like to see them keep Temuera if they do a Fett movie.  He has the rugged look.  Knowing Disney, they might replace him with Nick Cage.

One of the things that might have been cool, but probably won't happen with the events that happened in Sith, is that Boba could have hunted down Mace to avenge his father's death...though like Game of Thrones, if you don't see the body, don't count the person out.

If Darth Maul can survive being chopped in half and falling down a bottomless energy chasm, then certainly a jedi as powerful as Mace Windu could survive getting tossed out a window...
