They could do a Leia movie with a Mulan type storyline. It's Disney, how can they resist doing a princess movie?

I don't have a problem with solo movies as long as they don't pull a Kingdom Hearts and just keep pumping out solo films between episodes VIII and IX while dragging their heels on IX.

Milking it dry? Do you know how many hours of live action Star Trek there is compared to Star Wars? It's gonna take a lot of movies to "milk it dry".

Disney are already buying buckets. I saw them down at the hardware store.

It'll still take 20 years to reach the point that Star Trek did. And it's still better than having George write/direct any more of them.

True, but at least with Trek they were spread out over a period of 40 years.

From what I can gather with SW, Disney is apparently planning to release something like five movies over a period of seven years (the new trilogy in 2015, 2018 and 2021, with at least 2 solo movies in between).

That's an awful lot of SW in a short amount of time.

I'm trying to recall when Han was booted out of the Imperial Academy for disobeying orders and freeing Chewbacca from slavery....the graphic novel makes Him look like he'd reached his early twenties by that point and the fact he was in the Academy would also point to an age between the end of his teens and his early twenties, which means the film could be set 7-10 years before A New Hope.
Yeah, 7 to 10 years before ANH would be about right, based on the EU continuity. Han was born 29 BBY, so he would've been about 19 when he joined the Imperial Navy. The Paradise Snare, which depicted Han's acceptance into the Carida Academy, was set approximately 10 BBY. The second book in the trilogy, The Hutt Gambit, started 5 BBY, with Han and Chewbacca partnered as smugglers

I think according to Lucas, Han was raised by Wookies.

Re: More Star Wars films announced

I'm wondering if they might pull a Marvel and use at least one of the spin-off movies to introduce characters who will play a role in the new trilogy.
