Star Wars Movie Spin-Offs?

<< < (9/11) > >>

There could be some really off the wall stuff that could be mined to great effect in the Star Wars universe. How about that old episode zero storyline? I'd watch a young Qui-Gon movie showing how he became so independent of the Jedi Order. A full-on Shadows of the Empire movie? I could even see something like a Nien Nunb movie that makes a fun story out of how he found himself as Lando's copilot out of seemingly nowhere (something I've wondered since I was a kid.)

Beyond the obvious onslaught of Marvel movies since 09, is there any precedent for a movie series like they've proposed? I can't think of anything that comes close. Thomas the Train maybe, he has a new movie (on video anyway) every year.

There are some developments regarding the Boba Fett spinoff movie.  Check out THIS ARTICLE

Star Wars: Boba Fett spinoff in the works?

Boba Fett will reportedly be the focus of one of the upcoming Star Wars spinoff movies.  A standalone film centred on the bounty hunter is being written by Lawrence Kasdan, according to Metalocalypse director Jon Schnepp.  Speaking about the Star Wars spinoff projects in an interview with AMC Movie Talk, Schepp said: "One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact.

"I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan."

Last February, Disney confirmed that it was working on stand-alone Star Wars movies alongside JJ Abrams's Episode VII.  The spinoff films will be released within the same timeframe as the three main Stars Wars movies planned by Disney.  Star Wars Episode VII is scheduled for a December 18, 2015 cinema release. It is yet to announce any official castings.

This news is a couple of weeks old now, but forgot to post it here at that time.  Anyways, regarding the Boba Fett spin-off, it was reported that Kasdan had a pitch for a sort of "man with no name" reboot of the Boba Fett character, with essentially the "clone Boba" from the prequel era getting killed off at the beginning of the movie, by someone we don't see/know, and the killer taking his identity.  Thus, restoring the "mystery" of the Fett character again, but essentially writing out Lucas' original vision.  Kind of interesting.

I Am Sith:
Very interesting idea.  However, that messes with George's Special Edition ESB voiceover during the interrogation scene.  Unless he's killed by another clone, thus keeping the voices the same.

I would love to see this take place along the comic book story line where he blasts himself out of the sarlaac to start the movie.  However, with all of the EU non-cannon discussions going on, I'm sure that will never see the light of day.

Anyway, can't wait to hear the details of what's going on and see this one on the big screen!
