    That's great news obviously for Edwards and the fans! What an exciting journey for him, from Monsters to Godzilla and now this. :rock:

    I'm happy to see Gareth receiving these kind of offers, but bummed because this will most-definitely push back Godzilla 2.

    well the disney machine has started , first with force awakens and now there is news that han solo will have a spin off film set before episode 4 on how he got the millennium falcon and as of yet not sure about fett .

    although force awakens is a good idea would it really be a good idea doing these kind of spin off as its only gonna be lining disneys pockets

    ill try to find the info i saw and post it to show im not making it up lol

    There's been sooo many rumors about which character would have the spin-off:
    Han Solo, Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker, Obi-wan and even the Ewoks....

    We'll have to wait and see but I guess the first two are the best guess as their story can be really diversified!

    I personally want han, boba. And I reakon a yoda one would be good, but it might be hard picking a timeline for him in his 800 years of living. Maybe when he first starting becoming a Jedi or when he joined the Jedi council and so on

    Official announcement from Star Wars.com:

    Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga. Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz). The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds). Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.​

    Should be good. Met John Knoll for 2 star wars conventions with most of the actors here about 13 years ago. Then I met him again at the red carpet premier for the Pirates of the Caribbean. His just a guy and awesomely IT/special effects smart. His 2 autographs are very special to me from a man of such talent!

    Star Wars Twitter:
    The film stars Felicity Jones as a rebel soldier and will take place between episodes III and IV, though Edwards noted it leans “maybe a little bit towards IV”. The film will follow a rogue band of resistance fighters who unite to steal the Death Star plans and bring new hope to the galaxy.

    Star Wars: Rogue One takes place in a time when the Jedi are all but extinct and the absence of the Jedi is palpable. It comes down to a group of heroes without magical powers to save the galaxy.

    Three big reasons I'm looking forward to this film, in no particular order...

    1. It's Star Wars
    2. Gareth Edwards directing
    3. Felicity Jones starring :drool:

    My jaw slowly dropped as the camera panned up to the Death Star... :OMG:

    Yep all these teasers are hitting me in the feels.

    In fact this one got me more emotional. Guess Alec Guinness in all his awesomeness and the Death Star in all its epicness will do that.

    Guinness was truly perfect for Old Ben!

    Hopefully the rumors of Ben Mendelsohn joining the cast are legit, I love him in everything he's in.
