    We know that Disney/Lucasart decided to make spin-off. The first one is Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. What will be the 2nd? And on whom will it focuses?

    Bobba Fett?
    Han Solo?
    R2D2 saving the universe?

    Everyone knew Fett would get his own movie at some point, it has long been rumoured

    As much as I like Fett the prequels kinda ruined him for me (a long with a lot of other things!). But here's hoping with more info coming out over the next year or so it might get me a bit excited

    I was hoping for a Jar Jar spin-off. :( :p

    I know there are many fans of Boba Fett (my buddy @Baz_supreme being one of them), so this news will no doubt make a lot of them very happy. I wouldn't consider myself a big fan of the character, but that's mainly because not much is known about him, so I'm definitely interested in seeing his backstory etc.

    Aaron Paul as Boba Fett (Jesus Christ what a piss poor rumour)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If that happens i doubt i will watch it.

    Also wonder how they will manage to sort out the he is a clone but doesn't look anything like the person he was cloned from thing.

    I love Fett but honestly I think this will be to hard to pull off.

    Should stick to making the spin offs more of a back stories to different moments in the Empire V rebellion history.

    To me, Fett should be like Judge Dredd...never take his helmet off, just makes him seem more of a badass.

    I like the idea of more star wars, but there is such a thing as too much....is it going to get to the point where we have a movie about a janitor in the death star?

    Cheers, Nick. I am indeed a big fan of all things Fett. I'd love to see a stand alone film featuring him and all of the bounty hunter. I believe we're in safe hands with Disney.

    Earlier this year, a partial list of candidates for the role of Young Han Solo in Lucasfilm‘s upcoming spin-off film was revealed, and now The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the list has been cut down with a lightsaber. The Young Han Solo actor shortlist includes Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caesar!), Jack Reynor (Transformers: Age of Extinction), and Taron Egerton (Kingsman: The Secret Service). Also, Variety‘s Justin Kroll took to Twitter to reveal that Blake Jenner (Everybody Wants Some) and Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) are also among the final contenders.

    All I know is - they have got to not call these movies "XXXXX - A Star Wars Story".
    It makes them sound like a kid's anthology series. (Veggie Tales, etc.)

    I'm not too sure on who some of them are (maybe I would if I see faces) but I thought miles teller might of been a good choice. Going to be hard getting someone to be a young Han. You basically need someone who can pull it off as being a young ford by looks and attitude

    Chris Pratt. Period.

    But he's "too old" for what they would like to do I guess...

    I'm pretty glad that Anthony Ingruber isn't on any short lists any more (By the sound of it), he is just an impersonator, Would rather have an actual actor yeh might not look like Han but TBH it is the story and acting that is really going to make it (Also it is amazing what Make up can do these days).

    No official word from Disney or Lucasfilm to confirm it yet, but Alden Ehrenreich (Hail, Caeser!) has apparently been cast as the young Han Solo.
