Last week we thought that Disney had approached Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg solely about writing new films in the Star Wars franchise. This week the rumor mill says it’s not just new films, but possibly new spin-offs in the series, too.
Their scripts could turn into official “Episodes” in the main Skywalker storyline, or they could form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters. Disney CEO Robert Iger said the goal is to release a Star Wars movie “every two to three years,” and some could easily focus on other pieces of the expansive mythos (similar to Marvel’s Avengers universe).
Now we’re left to ponder where exactly those storylines might lead. If we get individual character movies, maybe we’ll get to see Mara Jade in her own movie, or even a whole Rogue Squadron film. There are so many directions it could take, it boggles the mind!
