‘Star Wars’ standalone film projects rumored to be Young Han Solo and Boba Fett films, ‘nothing set’

Disney CEO Bob Iger’s announcement Tuesday that the studio plans new Star Wars spinoff films has caused an avalanche of rumors online about which characters will star.

Jedi master Yoda, bounty hunter Boba Fett, a young Han Solo are named the most.

Deadline reports that nothing is written in stone yet.

“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.” (Below is a sketch from George Lucas and team for a Young Han Solo who may have been planned for “Revenge of the Sith” but got cut out.)

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.

Two more Star Wars movies, Episodes VIII and IX, are coming in the next few years.
