    CNBC: Disney Plans Stand-Alone Star Wars films

    UPDATED:

    Info from Star Wars official website.

    One of the standalone films will be written by Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and co-writer of Return of the Jedi while the other will be penned by Simon Kinberg, writer of Sherlock Holmes and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The movies will be separate from the upcoming Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, on which Kasdan and Kinberg are also consulting, and are expected to be released sometime after Episode VII. Each standalone film will focus on a specific character, and two spinoff films are currently confirmed.

    UPDATE 2:

    Comingsoon.net is reporting that the first two stand-alone films will Focus on Boba Fett and Young Han Solo. The Boba Fett film will take place within the timeline of A New Hope and Empire Stirkes Back, while the Solo film will be based of the 1979 Brain Daley Novel 'Han Solo at Star's End' which takes place 2 years before A New Hope.

they paid like 4 billion for marvel, churning out blockbuster movies will make it back in by avengers 3 from ticket sales alone let alone all the other items from comics to toys 

 

They need to do the same with SW to make it the steamroller it deserves to be

 

with literally 1000's of years from the origin of the Jedi to an unknown future SW could be an amazing franchise if they choose the right actors, writers, directors and CGI

 

 

A young Yoda would be interesting. Someone stupidly powerful in the force being a pint size lemming as a young knight has so much potential

 

Did he ever have arrogance, how did he avoid the darkside so lone, being over a thousand and so powerful, he must have had temptation at least once,

 

 

The could take a gamble and make an Animated set of movies like the Bane trilogy, 

fans would love it, and relatively low production cost, and DvD sales would cover it instantly

Im hoping for a Boba Fett film. Either between Jango's death and Empire, or Sarlacc pit and beyond.

I think this is the right direction for Star Wars. Treat the product like it has been in the gaming industry, or as you said as the Marvel films. Many stories better than the movies have been told through gaming, and the percentage of people that don't play video games have missed out on them. Multiple movies covering different era's or complete side stories that occurred during Ep I-IX.

 

Possible Movies I think would work:

Boba Fett
Obi-Wan's story between Episode III and IV
Young Han Solo & Chewy (and Lando)
Shaak-Ti

Kyle Katarn & Jan Orrs from the Jedi Knight/Outcast games
Old Republic Era (endless possibilities)
Han Solo between VI and VII or after IX pending on the new trilogy
Mace Windu (Starring Samuel Jackson)

This is some of the best news I've heard regarding Star Wars movies. Side story movies makes sense. I would love to see some stand alone movies. Way better than watching the re-re-rereleased original trilogy in 3D (I'm glad that was canceled).

 

A Boba Fett movie would be awesome. I'd really like to see a Mara Jade and Talon Karrde smuggler movie.

Do you guys think it's best to have a new section with news of the new trilogy and what not? 

 

I haven't read any of the books so I don't know how this'll pan out for me as a fan because I've watched the original trilogy and the new one as a set. I don't mind stand-alone movies but it'll be interesting ... be the first for Star Wars live action anyway.

If they start pumping out new Star Wars movies and series, then yeah, we'll probably open up a Star Wars forum. :nod:

 

Two movies that would be truly awesome would be

 

Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Luke_Skywalker_and_the_Shadows_of_Mindor

 

and

 

The Courtship of Princess Leia

http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Courtship_of_Princess_Leia

 

Even if they don't make those two novels into movies, it would be fine as long as they took aspects of these two books to be used in a movie. The Mindor novel had a "Prophet of the Dark Side" which was a very different take on traditional Sith lords.

 

The Courtship novel took place on a planet of witches that were the descendents of ancient jedi and their magic spells were actually powerful force manipulations created through incantations. Oh.. and it all took place on a planet inhabited by rancors. Imagine that.. Witches riding rancors into battle. Hell yes.

      I've been too busy with moving and stuff. I didn't realize facebook login crippled the front page of AC unless you were logged in. I don't know when that started happening, but I've disabled facebook and twitter login for now until I have the time to resolve the issue.

      I never want to move again. Almost every day for the last week has been rain and it's raining even now. It's hard to believe how much stuff two ppl can accumulate over 18 year's until you have to move it all under a time restriction.

      Thanks Spectrum/Time Warner for shutting off my services in the middle of the work day. fml. I scheduled the new account activation at my new house for this weekend and for the old account at the house I'm renting to terminate as of monday.. so what does Spectrum do? Shut my account down 1 day before the new account is activated and a full 4 days before it was scheduled to close. wtf. It took me 40 mins on the phone for them to reactivate my internet so I could finish working. wtf.

      With the summer simuldub season coming to a close, it played out like I predicted more or less. I'll wait a bit longer before I post my review. Pretty lackluster overall. But for me, the Fall Lineup is pretty stacked. Fairy Tail, SAO Season 3, and Black Clover continues which has become a lot more promising after this last arc I just watched... by far its strongest and most compelling. I watched the first episode of Double Decker! Doug & Kirill which was entertaining, and SSSS.GRIDMAN seems to be a Pacific Rim clone. Overall a return to more action adventure series, and lighter on the fan service heavy series.
