What anthology/spinoff film would you like to see?

As you know, alongside the sequel trilogy, Disney/Lucasfilm is also planning three spinoff or “Anthology” films. The first is Gareth Edward’s “Rogue One” centering on the mission to take the Death Star plans. The other two include a Han Solo prequel and a Boba Fett origin story. I think these are all great ideas, but what would you like to see?

I really want a film centered on Obi Wan as a broken man after ROTS. Obi Wan was a decent character in the prequels(at least compared to others), but we can do better. Maybe we finally get to see whiny kid Anakin become badbutt Vader slaughtering Jedi in his quest to find Obi Wan. We can also bring back Darth Maul, and resolve the cliffhanger in the Clone Wars. Palpatine brainwashes Maul into a mindless killing machine and orders him to find Obi Wan. At this point, Obi Wan is really suffering from guilt and PTSD, trying to get Luke to a safe place while on the run from Stormtroopers. I wanna see an epic fight between Darth Maul and Obi Wan. It could also delve deeper into the force with Yoda realizing his hubris and teaching Obi Wan that force ghost technique.

I would also LOVE to see a Jar Jar Binks origin prequel gritty reboot where he’s the Chosen One, snaps General Zod’s neck, and travels through dimensions. That would be AMAZING! lol

In all seriousness, I would love to see the other anthology movie be about the Old Republic or Jabba the Hutt. Although it may be hard to take a movie about a giant slug seriously.

I’d like to see a “Tag and Bink are Dead” movie, written and directed by Kevin Rubio of course.

I think there’s an old thread for this, at least I remember posting already posting my thoughts on what spin-off I would like: a The Searchers style western starring McGregor’s Kenobi and Edgerton’s Owen lightsabering and punching Tusken Raiders to death, respectively.

Also a Ric Olie movie starring Ralph Brown and directed by Tommy Wiseau would be a real treasure.

Maybe in the Style of “Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid”?

Also, the Origin Story of Darth Vader would be cool.

Mmm … cromulent.

I believe the original, theatrical versions of SW & TESB are great films. Beyond that, I have little in common with the typical
Star Wars fan here. Just a heads-up so you aren’t too taken aback when I say I prefer Dark Empire over Return of the Jedi.

I’d love more films without Force users. Which is why I’m the most excited about Rogue One. A series of films that cover the GCW would be awesome.

I’m pretty excited for Rogue One too, and the Han Solo picture, but the sooner they can step away from prequels, the better. The fact that they have a whole universe to play with means they shouldn’t be focusing on small events that tie directly into previous films. But I like to think they know this too, which just means that Rogue One will be killer enough to justify the somewhat redundant story. At the very least it is certainly shaping up to be very different tonally from the main films, which is good.

What I DO NOT want to see is a Yoda film, as has been rumored here and there. What I do want to see, and we surely will get, is a Boba Fett film. Forget his bloated fanbase. He’s an interesting and mysterious character who was shown briefly in Empire (and, of course, subsequently lost all of his potential for coolness in his other appearances) - the perfect subject for a spin-off, especially considering the possibilities of a “Man with No Name” type film in space. Let’s hope it’s done right.

Films set during the OT would be nice. I know it’s a prequels and people hate it, but it would be interesting to see Coruscant under Imperial rule. It is sort of odd that we don’t see the Imperial capital at all in the OT. Would be a cool location for a GCW film (if they keep the politics out of it or at least to a minimum).

  • an X-Wing film
  • a film showing what Palpatine was doing during ANH, with a screenplay written by James Luceno

A Boba Fett spinoff film has more potential than people think. For example, take his crappy shoe horned origin story in Attack of the Clones. Imagine if your dad was decapitated and then cloned. The clones wouldn’t recognize you. How would you feel about that? Take the fact that most stormtroopers are human in The Force Awakens. Did the clones expire after a while? Does that mean that Boba Fett(being a clone) has a limited time to live? Maybe Boba Fett has to constantly deal with people who hate the Empire recognizing him as a clone. It would explain why he never shows fear when facing Darth Vader(because he kinda hates him). Maybe Boba Fett doesn’t redeem himself until after the Sarlacc Pit, and it can be this epic that spans his lifetime until death.

You’re right about keeping it as far away from the prequels as possible, so maybe we shouldn’t get an Obi Wan movie since it would have to create drama that was never shown during the prequels and explain why Obi Wan lied to Luke about both the Force and his father. So I guess the movie I really want is an Old Republic movie. Is there any reference to this time period in the prequels or the Clone Wars?
EDIT:It’s also possible there might be spinoffs about the new characters. Kylo Ren anyone?

To be completely honest, I do not want any of the OT characters or events be stained. So I don’t really want any directly OT-related spinoffs.

Stained? I doubt the original trilogy can be stained more than the prequels. Before Attack of the Clones, I would have been vehemently against a Boba Fett movie, but now all the mystery has been sucked out. I gave my ideas for a Boba Fett movie in the post just above yours, and you can see there’s some potential. As for Han Solo, when I first heard about it, I was a little iffy. Apparently, when asked what spinoff Lawrence Kasdan(writer of the Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones) wanted to make, he immediately said Han Solo because he was his favorite character. Combine that with the fact that the LEGO Movie guys are directing, and I see a lot of potential. As for Rogue One, I think it’s a great idea! It can very much be like this historical war movie in space. We can finally see the “Wars” side of “Star Wars”. Gareth Edwards is a great choice because as shown in Godzilla, he knows how to make things seem larger than life and terrifying which you would do with the Death Star. What about an Old Republic movie? This could be the chance to retcon midichlorians or show the Sith in their prime. Maybe a scumbag Sith cons people into thinking they could be Jedi with that midichlorian blood count thing. How about another Sith who abuses mind control like there’s no tommorow. The hero could even be Yoda or something. There’s so much potential in the Star Wars universe!

Ugh. How about we just pretend midichlorians don’t exist and refuse to mention them in future works instead?

True. I think Disney is trying to avoid inside jokes and movies overly reliant on the original and prequel trilogies. Why do you think there’s new characters for The Force Awakens? All the announced spinoffs seem pretty standalone. They know there’s idiots who go into a sequel without watching anything before even if its 10 movies in.

I agree. They have the opportunity to move out of the Solar System Far Far Away. Here’s hoping they do just that. No force, no Jedi, no Sith. Get back to the mystery and the wonder.

Yeah, it’s like the only planets are Tatooine, Coruscant, the Death Star, and Naboo. Tatooine comes out in 5/6 of the movies. Coruscant is in 4/6 thanks to special edition changes. Naboo and the Death Star are in 3/6.

I’m kind of hoping now that Rogue One becomes it’s own series.
It could cover the gap between the OT movies and then some of the period after.

do you think as Rougue one is set before A new Hope (Star Wars)

will the Han Solo film be set before Empire Strikes Back? (That bounty Hunter we Ran in to… Blah blah / evacuating the base at Yavin)

3rd spin off film to be set between Empire and Jedi? Actually there is really not any space between Empire and Jedi so where would it be set after ROTJ?

The troops in the OT are human too. They all have different voices and heights.
I dunno what happened to the clones. I’m not into the PT or EU.

OH and to stay to target, I’d rather see spin-off films about new characters living in the Star Wars galaxy. Stories that happen during the OT, but don’t feature characters that we know or even connect to the other films. Smaller films and smaller stories. No galaxy saving, no major victories for the Empire or Rebellion. Just interesting stories about life in that world.

If they cast Solo correctly and stick to a serious story, A Han Solo stand-alone could be be really interesting. They need to stay away from the OT. The world is very aware of Han Solo and who he is as a person. We don’t need a bunch of name-checks or OT references. Something along the lines of the Brian Daley novels. Han Solo and Chewie long before we ever met them.

I’d go with Stars’ End and tweak it as necessary. Show us The Corporate Sector. Let us meet Jessa. That’s a perfect spot for a female lead. Nothing wrong with taking a break from The Empire, The Force, and The Sith for a few hours. I’d certainly welcome it.

Emma Stone in her natural blonde would make a great Jessa.

I think Disney shouldn’t adapt Expanded Universe storylines because it’s just lazy. I think I’d rather see Lawrence Kasdan’s take on Han Solo’s past than an adaptation of an obscure EU novel. I know there’s some good stuff in there, but why would you want to see the same story again?

Well PT obviously stained a lot of OT stuff. But that doesn’t mean now the clean stuff (like Han Solo) should just be stained as well.

I repeat. Han Solo written by LAWRENCE KASDAN. Directed by the directors of the LEGO Movie. Lots of potential.

I would hardly call the Brian Daley Han Solo books obscure. Aside from the Lando books and Splinter of the Mind’s Eye, those were the only non movie adaptation novels out there before 1991.

Daley wrote the expanded scripts for the radio adaptions of the OT. If he was still around, he would probably have been considered to write a sequel.
