Re: Star Wars: Lucasfilm/Disney Planning Stand Alone Movies
Biggest rumour on the 2 movies is that they will be about Yoda and Boba Fett. Mind you there is no evidence of these being true. I'll wait until the official announcement.
If it is Yoda, I presume that it will cover his time at the temple as George never wanted Yoda's species (ie origins known). Plenty of material in his temple time as he did train jedi for 800 years.
I'd like a spin off movie on the X-Wing pilots. Disney already know the books were successful. It would the action movie fans would like. They could show battles not involving the big three (especially Luke). Anyone can play Ackbar to give mission briefings. If they choose a squad other than Rogue then recasting is not needed. Big question is that a similar thing was tried with Wing Commander and wasn't successful so better writing would be needed for a Star Wars variant.
Remember, the Force is with you always.
