Rumours are swirling about Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg writing stand-alone films for the Star Wars universe, prompting some to believe the ultimate goal of Disney is to follow the Marvel formula and eventually release 2-3 films a year set a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.
It’s been reported that Han Solo, Boba Fett, and Yoda are all in line for their own spin-off films, and the potential of those flicks have many fans giddy with excitement. While Disney has yet to confirm these films, if nothing else, the fan response to the rumours should prompt them to proceed with those plans and make movies for those three characters (or at least Bobba Fett).
If Disney does indeed plan a whole universe worth of films, it’s likely that a lot of the stand-alone movies will be based on characters from the expanded universe or even characters created by Disney. I’d hope the people at Disney don’t feel the need to create characters since there are thousands of already existing characters out there, but I could see them looking to build their own universe instead of pulling from what has been established. Regardless of what they do in terms of bringing in new characters, there are still some awesome ones from the past six films that deserve two hours to themselves.
I’ve compiled a list of 5 more Star Wars characters that I think would make for awesome films. I’ve pulled these characters from the previous films, but I’ve also taken into account their expanded universe appearances. On the assumption that the spin-off rumours are indeed true, the three characters mentioned above aren’t included as Disney already has plans for them.
So head to the next page to read my first choice for another awesome stand-alone Star Wars film!
