What Star Wars Character Should Have Their Own Spin-Off?

As we all know, there are several Star Wars projects in development, including a few standalone projects. Word is the first one will centre on Yoda with others focusing on Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt. Not sure a movie focusing entirely on Yoda would be all that exciting but I’d be there opening night anyway.

Now the Fett? Hell yes! I’d love an entire trilogy based entirely on him and maybe a few other Bounty Hunters.

The Bounty Hunter Wars Trilogy novels are excellent and would make excellent movies and they could easily change the timeline on them or maybe do a similar story rather than a direct adaptation.

There are also rumours that John Noble (Fringe/LOTR) may be playing a villain in Episode VII and by god I hope that’s true; he was fantastic as Denethor and seeing him as a Sith would be fantastic.

Apparently we are also getting a young Han Solo movie, which I hope is based on the Han Solo Trilogy of novels as they are some of my all time favourites. The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars. So Harrison Ford wouldn’t be playing the young Solo; who would you cast in the role?

Are there any other characters from the Star Wars universe that you would like to see? Admiral Ackbar: The Teenage Years? A Boy & his Wompa? The possibilities are endless…
