Disney Developing Star Wars Spin-offs

The internet is somewhat aflame today as Bob Iger, Disney CEO, confirms that Disney are developing spin-off movies outside of the sequel trilogy.

In his interview with CNBC, Iger confirmed that Disney are working on “a few” movies which will be released concurrently with the new trilogy but will stand on their own outside of the Star Wars Saga itself. These will feature the further adventures of already established Star Wars characters.

Screenwriters Larry Kasdan (ESB, RotJ) and Simon Kinberg (Mr & Mrs Smith, Jumper, Sherlock Holmes) are at the helm of the development, working closely with Episode 7 director JJ Abrams.

Speculation is rife with Ain’t It Cool News suggesting that a solo outing for Yoda is up first, with other blogs mentioning the possibility of tales from the early years of Han Solo or Boba Fett.

However this pans out it really is an exciting time to be a Star Wars fan!
