"Star Wars" news has been flooding the internet, and it's not going to stop anytime soon. We've heard rumors of some stand-alone films happening, ever since "Star Wars: Episode VII" was announced. Disney has now confirmed that spin-off films are indeed happening, and the characters reportedly being eyed for them, are Han Solo and Boba Fett.
Per Deadline, Disney CEO and Chairman Bob Iger, had this to say on the subject:
"Nobody knows when these movies are even coming out. Right now, people are just kicking around ideas. Which is why you hear it’s Yoda one day and a young Han Solo another. It’s all in early development right now." Iger, whose Disney recently bought LucasFilm, himself said yesterday during an earnings call that the concept for the new films is simply "becoming more real". He also confirmed that Simon Kinberg and Lawrence Kasdan are going to handle the screenplays. Right now the studio’s attention is on Star Wars: Episode VII which is expected out in 2015 with JJ Abrams directing and Michael Arndt scripting.
