    Probably mentioned somewhere, but I haven't seen it... I have heard about spin-offs for Boba, Yoda, Han... even Obi Wan... and along comes a random comment I think has been overlooked...

    "a barrage of spinoffs (coming soon: Boba Fett and Chewbacca)."

    Yes, using Lucas' original idea of having an ALL Wookiee movie.

    I think they were just throwing out generalizations rather than concrete proof that those spinoffs are happening (Boba Fett Colon Movie For Theaters is an inevitability, though).

    Nonetheless, I'd love to see When Han Met Chewbacca. That period where Han ditches the Imperial Academy in order to help a Wookiee out is probably the most crucial in terms of character development for the pair, and since the previously canon source got the axe, it would make for a great story to re-introduce to a much wider audience.

    I think it is fairly certain that Bobba Fett spinoff movie will be released in 2016.

    This is a good idea i think. I will buy half the merchandise and Bobba is pretty cool so a new following of fans will buy the rest.

    Many will say this is a bit predictable and that the film will pander to the will of the masses. But you know what, it is all about fun at the end of the day and lets face it, it will be a great story to put up on the big screen with today's technology. It will be great to see some gaps filled between Prequels and Originals for Bobba. Have read previously on ScreenRant Website that could focus on time between IV and VI so, although this may not be best source, I feel from this platform we could have the years after the death of Jango fleshed out.

    Would love any further news if anybody has it, certainly any to the contrary would be great?

    Disney will be putting out a movie each year begging with VII in 2015 until 2020 (perhaps, 'difficult to see. Always in motion.. the future')

    You wrote a great post and having a Boba Fett movie is more of a "cash grab" than the ST is. Disney is in BUSINESS of making money and SW sells. I mean, why NOT make movies for ancillary characters? It works for Marvel. Does Marvel get accused of cash-grabbing even though half the movies produced aren't that great while the other half are great??? Its hit or miss and also an "eye of the beholder" thing.

    But, as you said, "it is all about fun at the end of the day."

    Absolutely! Great post!

    I feel like I've heard that they actually have movies definitively planned out until 2021. That would imply three Episodes and four Spin-Offs will be made. If this is the case, Episodes VII & IX may not necessarily come out in 2017 and 2019 respectively - those years may be reserved for Spin-Offs. I believe that Disney is set on making an Episode every two years, though - Rian Johnson being hired so early is clearly a sign that Episode VIII is getting into pre-production.

    I was trying to think how a Chewbacca, or any Wookie movie for that matter, could work when there wouldn't be humans to translate for you (and without resorting to subtitles).

    A Chewbacca movie could follow an Apocalypto like story. Very action oriented, focusing on crazy otherworldly wookies stuff as the mysterious empire comes down to enslave them all, lots of visual interest, I think it could work.

    I'd rather see that than a Han/Chewie reboot with recast leads.

    If I were more connected to Lucas & ILM/Lucas Arts, I would have pitched a video game called Fight For Freedom where Han, Chewie, other Wookie characters, Bossk, Boba Fett, Dengar, maybe Darth Vader & Gran Moff Tarkin would be featured.
    The plot would be how Han & Chewbacca met. Han would be duped into handling a cargo shipment then realize the cargo were captured Wookie slaves after the battle in ROTS.
    Bossk, a slaver & his evil crew would be in charge of a slave trade/colony that forces Wookies to mine/process deadly gas or minerals that cause them to die in horrid conditions.
    Han refuses to help Bossk & the slavers/mine owners(who process natural resources for the Empire).
    He hooks up with Chewie & together they lead the revolt in the FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!

    I always thought the concept had a lot to offer but then Lucas & Disney closed the Lucas Arts brand.
    Wah!

    I don't think we'd see a Chewie movie, but would probably get alot of his origin filled in along with Han's in the Solo spinoff that is rumored.

    Maybe in a Chewie movie, he'll FINALLY get his medal for his bravery & courage in the first Death Star battle; the battle of Yavin. Lol.

    Han spinoff would be great: it would allow for Lando to be brought in and Chewy to be part of it (hopefully).. Correlia would give some great sets and it would be cool to see some of Han early days with Chewy; if film went that way? or could be his child. I have heard only Solo as description.

    I guess it will be interesting to see at what time it's set and if Solo actually refers to Han, I don't know, maybe not???

    It goes without saying I suppose that the casting for the Solo spinoff is CRUCIAL. But I agree that I think it would show his days in the Imperial academy or whatever when he freed Chewie and became a full-fledged rogue.

    Yeah casting will give us earliest indications, or may use that technology Lucas looked at to retain characters image (or something). It would actually be quite moving to see him save Chewy and see Han himself mistreated as a child.

    If movie did cover these early years it would be perhaps the most interesting film yet?

    If they did so I would hope they get someone who looks a lot like Harrison Ford prior to Star Wars and much younger like late teens/early twenties.

    Yep, i think that's where Echo-07 was headed. Once we see who is casted we will have a better idea. But I agree, if a younger actor is found to play Han this will be a great story..

    Yes he deserves it instead of being a roar bearer when telling the columns of rebels to turn then right.

    In the novel, he did receive one, only Leia was too short to present it at the ceremony...

    I don’t think this would be very good for a start there would be no dialogue if it is an all Wolfe movie. We are going to see Cherie and the Wookiee more in Solo a Star Wars story hopefully. When Han will meet and free Chewie.
