called it weeks ago
They are doing the Marvel films plan where they have the Avengers (Episdoe 7 for star wars) and then the off shoot movies of what the main characters are doing in between the movies ie Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and so on except these will star the new main characters of Episode 7 and beyond.
It would be like if in between A New Hope and Empire we got 3 movies one following Luke, one following Han and one following Vader.
Is this confirmed, or are you hazarding a guess? If so I think this would be a good approach, it would be nice to look at the background of characters not through comics or novels but movies. I'd love to see one about Yoda and Han/Chewbacca.
