Disney Confirms Star Wars Standalone Movies

Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed rumors that there are indeed standalone Star Wars movies in the works in addition to the next Star Wars trilogy.

In an interview with CNBC, Iger said the studio will make different Star Wars solo films during the same time frame as the new trilogy will be released.

"We are in fact working on a few stand-alone films," said Iger. "(Lawrence) Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are both working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga. So we plan to make Star Wars VII, VIII and IX over roughly a six-year period of time starting in 2015. But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time too."

Iger would not confirm, deny or comment further on any of the Star Wars characters who might get their own standalone movies. Everyone from Yoda to Boba Fett to a Seven Samurai-style Jedi team film have been rumored as candidates for possible Star Wars spin-off movies.

I have as much authority as the Pope. I just don’t have as many people who believe it.

There's a rumor flying around that the first movie will be centered around Yoda, which I do not have a problem with. Disney didn't mess up marvel, so Ill give them the benefit of the doubt with star wars.

It makes sense. Why buy a universe and only focus on one piece?

The sad thing is that Dark Horse comics, which has had the comic book license forever, is losing out. Disney is naturally moving it over to Marvel, which means that at some point they'll feel compelled to do a crossover, which will only work as an old-style "What If?" comic.

What if ... the X Men were Jedi knights powered by Midi-chlorians?

Professor X is replaced by Professor Y(oda).

Don't worry. I got a strong feeling we're going to get one. I think they might have already said that was one that were going to do.
