MOVIES: Lucasfilm to pursue spin-off movies
Want to see the adventures of Boba Fett? What about a movie just about Yoda’s adventures on Dagobah? How ’bout a flick about Tag and Bink? Disney CEO, Bob Iger has confirmed that it is pursuing the idea of spin-off movies that are not part of the “chapter series.”
There’s no word on which characters are involved in the spin-off movies, but Iger did say that Larry Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men) are working on the projects. This of course has spawned hundreds (maybe thousands) of thoughts and ideas on who should star in the first spin-off flick. While it would be cool to see the adventures of young Greedo, the large amount of press Timothy Zahn’s Scoundrels has received leads me to believe we will see something featuring Han Solo (not played by Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca in an “Ocean’s Eleven-type heist caper.”
