Star Wars Spin-Offs

I'm not sure if there is a thread dedicated to this topic, so if there is I appologise. There has been chatter about a new line of spin-off films being made as well as Episodes 7-9, including the possibility of one focusing on Yoda.

If this did go ahead, I would love to see it go back 900 or so years and look at him when he was just a Padawan, before he became the great Jedi we know he becomes. It'd be interesting to see the Jedi as keepers of the peace and not warriors.

If they do go ahead with spin-offs, what/who would you like to see?

Of the ones heavily rumored, I love to see Yoda and Boba Fett movies. Young Han Solo, not so much.

I love Yoda as much as the next guy, but a Yoda-centric whole movie... a recipe for pain and disaster, that is.

Re: Star Wars Spin-Offs

I heard there was interest in doing a take on Seven Samurai. Given Lucas's original influences for Star Wars, it could be quite fun. I wonder what kind of time period it would be set in. To me, the spinoffs offer a great opportunity to mix things up and not just put everything post OT timeline.

Didn't they already do that with 'The Clone Wars' series?

Re: Star Wars Spin-Offs

I have no idea, but that doesn't really change anything. Supposedly Zack Snyder wants to do a Star Wars Seven Samurai. If Zack Snyder wants to do a Star Wars Seven Samurai movie, Zack Snyder gets to do a Star Wars Seven Samurai movie. Whatever happened in a cartoon series that had a much smaller audience doesn't change the equation.

I guess. You'd have to ask him.

Re: Star Wars Spin-Offs

As I suggested back when the first inkings of this came out:

"Seven Samurai" with Jedi. Set a few years after RotS, Survivors of the purge (and friends) are gathered up by a grizzled, old, one-armed Mace Windu (going under an assumed name) who has been hunted down by a force-sensitive kid in the hopes of fending off the Imperial invasion of an outer-rim planet where the first inklings of a serious Rebellion has begun to form in earnest. An Alamo-esque finale (and death of these last few Jedi) kick-starts these beginnings of the Rebel Alliance.

That actually sounds like an awesome idea, and we get more Mace Windu. I don't think it would ever happen, but its a great idea for a Star wars movie.

Re: Star Wars Spin-Offs

I've toyed with a script for it off and on for a while now. I just wish I had someone I could put it in front of, or at least toss a treatment at. Certainly a better idea than a Yoda solo flick.

I gotta admit that sounds pretty good (magnificent? ho-ho!) laid out like that.

That does sound pretty bad-ass! Always wanting more Mace.

I also wouldn't mind seeing a live action Ahsoka Tano. After leaving the Order, she then watches from seclusion as the galaxy descends into evil and darkness, with her former master, mentor and friend at the forefront destroying everything he had taught her to protect and safeguard. Looking at her own internal struggle to deal with what is happening--with all that Anakin is doing conflicting with her conscience, questioning if she would've been able to bring him back from the Dark Side, worrying about her own fortitude against evil, etc--whilst trying to live off the grid and avoid the Empire, though never quite able to get away from doing the right thing and helping those in need.

Re: Star Wars Spin-Offs

I'd see a young Han Solo movie. I'd see a movie about Yoda, but as long a he was part of an ensemble cast rather then the sole focus.

I wouldn't cross the street to see a Boba Fett movie. Easily the most over-rated character in the entirety of the GFFA.

I don't know if I'd go for a Yoda-centric movie. They have done a Yoda focused novel (Yoda: Dark Rendezvous) and a Yoda centric comic (Jedi: Yoda) that were good, but I'm still not sure if they could pull off a movie. I would enjoy a Boba Fett movie though. Honestly, I think I'd rather see them explore different time periods rather than focusing on specific character.
