So me and a lot of other people were thinking that Kasdan was writing Episode VIII and Kinberg was writing IX, as they were announced as writers along side Arndt who is writing episode VII. THis is great news imo, more Star Wars movies, and the fact that Kinberg is not writing an actual "episode" of the main series. That guy has the worst resume ever, he has never written a good screenplay, just crap.

SO yeah, what movies do you think theyre gonna do?

1. Yoda movie, just cause its a major rumor atm. Could be awesome, could be meh.

2. "Seven Jedi", a spin on Seven Samurai. Buncha jedi team up to protect hapless villagers against marauders. The other majorly rumored one was. Sounds fantastic.

3. Boba Fett movie, was rumored very early on but havent heard much of it recently. Could be great.

4. Jabba the Hutt movie, this one popped up on my radar this week. I could see Jabba starring, but I just really want a movie that focuses on the underbelly of the SW universe, and doesnt deal too much with Jedi or imps or rebels.

5. Any wish list movies? I think a Rogue Squadron movie, or just somthing focusing on a squad of fighter pilots, would be epic. Maybe introduce the new fighters and a few characters in the new trilogy, and spin off from there. Or maybe mix that concept with an espionage angle.
Very interesting. I'd have to agree with Wolf here though, it seems a bit weird, I'd even go as far to say wrong. I mean, Star Wars is a very iconic saga. You've got 'Episodes', those iconic Roman numerals, the scrolling text, the whole set up. And having 'spin-offs' seems a bit wrong. It breaks away from the whole linear episode, star warsy format if you get what I mean. However if they're good you can't really complain.

1. I would love to see a Yoda movie, of all the characters in the Star Wars universe, this guy has the most hazy backstory. It's also just an awesome idea to take a wise master and explore his time as a learner. Yoda as a padawan, gotta love it ^_^

2. No - mainly because that would be a rip off movie, completely unoriginal and just silly. Probably also copyright infringement as well... and lets face it, just sounds like an excuse for some 'twirly twirly'. It also reeks of 'spoof'.

3. Nah, I think Boba's backstory has been explored well enough both in the EU, the prequels and TCW - making a movie about him would be a little overkill and would infringe on current material. But seeing as he's a popular character I can see a film being made on him - and if the stories good it might actually be a good film, but it wouldn't be my first choice.

4. Jabba doesn't really do much though does he? Just sits and eats and slobbers on people... But I'd love to see a film on the underworld. A live action series called Star Wars: Underworld is in the works though, so I doubt it. Unless they use it in a similar way they did TCW - as a premiere of sorts.

5. I was never really a fan of that kinda stuff, but I agree it would make an awesome movie. I'm hesitant on things like Thrawn, simply because they suit the 'saga' format, rather than spin offs. Yet I think these 'spin offs' will focus on whatever the content of the films are, like they said they 'fill the gaps'. It will probably be something like Marvel.

Oh and
