Between 1977 and 2005, George Lucas gave us six Star Wars movies. Disney may give us that many by next month, because in addition to the new announced trilogy, Han Solo and Boba Fett are getting their own spin-offs. Inside Movies reports:
Entertainment Weekly has learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum. Several sources close to the projects confirmed this was the direction the development was taking, although each cautioned it’s still very early in the process and, well, the deal could always be altered futher. Lucasfilm and Disney declined to comment on the information. The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original.
Two hours of Han Solo gambling and smuggling shit and banging bitches? My penis just made the lightsaber noise.
