Disney Reveals Spin-Off Movies Based On ‘Star Wars’ Characters (Lando Calrissian? Jar Jar Binks?)

Disney Reveals Spin-Off Movies Based On 'Star Wars' Characters (Lando Calrissian? Jar Jar Binks?)

Oh gawd… when exactly does Star Wars fatigue begin? Does it ever? Will it ever?

We’re already getting 3 more films, as previously announced after the Disney purchase of the franchise; but that apparently won’t be enough because, in addition to those 3 films, expect stand-alone films, separate from the official Star Wars films, that will be based on Star Wars characters.

Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed this piece of news during an interview with CNBC this afternoon. He added that these spin-off films will be released between the releases of the already announced 3 new Stars Wars movies (VII, VIII and IX), and that Larry Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are already currently working on them.

Iger wouldn’t say what characters will be spun-off into their own movies, so let the speculation begin. Jar Jar Binks maybe? Or how about Lando Calrissian played by Billy Dee Williams in the earlier films?

I’m definitely no Star Wars universe geek, so I’ll leave all the speculation to those of you who are…

This was inevitable. Disney is a money devouring machine and there was no way they would just settle for the box office gross of three films. I'm only interested in Episodes 7 through 9, but I'm sure we can expect plenty of spin-off films, TV shows, etc, to come along.
