Default Stand Alone & Spin-Off Star Wars movies...what would you like to see get made?

Stand Alone & Spin-Off Star Wars movies...what would you like to see get made?

One thing that has occurred to me is if they make a movie outside the saga storyline, and it's very well received, it would spawn it's own sequels, making for tons of Possibilities...

One thing I'd like to see is a Vader/Empire Story taking place between the 3 & 4 time period...All Vader, All the time!

Does this really need to be in the Episode VII section?

Ya this should be in the "sequels" section for the most part.

The Force Unleashed
Knights of the Old Republic
Dark Forces

This guy knows.

And I hate the idea of a Han Solo movie. Not only because of the absence of Ford, but also because I am just not really interested in what happened to the character pre-ANH. I don't really care about Boba Fett either. I have no idea why he's so popular. A Yoda solo movie? That's just dumb. That movie isn't actually confirmed, is it?

Hmmm I would not be against Obi-Wan stories, but I'd rather have some others first. Though I really do want to see some stuff in between Episode III and IV, and I would not mind interquels either. The Boba one has me excited if it was in between ANH and ESB.

I'm not for The Force Unleashed because it revolves too much around Vader, we've seen enough of him. I don't mind if there are some small appearances, but I guess I just never liked The Force Unleashed story, or the games themselves.

As for Dark Forces? Hell ya, loved the first two especially, they had superb stories, The Valley of the Jedi, Dark Troopers ect ect. Katarn would be a great character to introduce to the GA.

As for Knights of the Old Republic a resounding yes....but I don't know if I want it as a "spin-off" I'd rather them make that the new trilogy after VII, VIII, and IX. I think there is so much there one film would not do it justice.

Obi-Wan and Han Solo spinoffs.

I think having a few movies set between ROTS and ANH could help with that huge gap of nothing. I think it's like 17 years between movies? Not sure if there's any books about it?

I think the Obi-Wan movie would be about him watching over Luke, while the Han Solo movie could tell about how he became a smuggler and have Chewy, Jaba and Lando in it.

There are a lot of comics, novels and video games covering almost every time in the SW universe, expecially those closer to the movies.

I'm sincerelly turned off by the idea of a Yoda or Han Solo film, for the same reason i wouldn't be interested in a Ron Weasly film

You should be slapped for even mentioning Han in the same breath as Ron Weasly.

I haven't spoken a word to mysterious in months, so I'd hardly say I overuse the term.

Honestly, nothing. Keep the films in the "Official Skywalker Saga" and anything outside of that in live action form as a television series. Only a matter of time before we get a TV show.

I don't like the idea of Marvel-izing Star Wars. Marvel was all about solo superheroes all building up to one big mega-event. Star Wars is a big mega-event all to its own.

I'm with you. I don't even think that Episode VII should be the Skywalker's story. I think that Abrahms should set Episode VII about 1,000 years after ANH. Tell a whole new story. But that is just me.

That being said, I really don't have any interest in a Han Solo prequel. I don't think anyone can replicate the charm of Harrison Ford without coming off as a caricature of him. Plus, I think some mystique is some good thing. Mind you, Han and Chewie are my favorite characters in the franchise....but I like some mystery behind them. We don't need to see everything.

Plus, I think that it kind of undermines Han. There is nothing special about him prior to ANH. He is a scoundrel, a smuggler and a pirate. His journey into hero is what makes his arc in the OT poignant. I don't want to see a prequel undermine that.

As for Boba Fett, whatever. I've never seen anything special about him, to be honest.

Problem is that wouldn't be episode VII though, that would just be a spin off using the name. Star Wars is the story of Obi-Wan, Luke, and Lukes protege. Vaders arc always ended with Episode VI, so that won't be too hard, the problem will be replacing Palpatine.

Y'know, normally I'd agrer with the abovr opinion, but the EU books like the Han Solo trilogy or Rogue Squardron really convinced thst Star Wars can have extremely successful offshoots that seem just as enthrawling, epic and meaningful as the Skywalkers' saga.

Well, we've already had some spin-off movies. Yeah, that's right... the Ewok films. Sure, they were TV movies in the states but they were released theatrically in Europe. So Star Wars has already branched out with spin-offs.

I think a young Han Solo movie would be neat. I'm not interested in Yoda or Boba Fett. I wouldn't mind an Obi-Wan spinoff if done right.
