Disney CEO Confirms Standalone Star Wars Movies

Disney is very happy to get their hands on Star Wars because they plan to milk that puppy all that they can by the looks of it. Disney CEO Bob Iger was interviewed by CNBC and he stated that they have plans to make standalone Star Wars films besides the new trilogy over a 6 year period. 

Iger stated "We are in fact working on a few stand-alone films, (Lawrence) Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are both working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga. So we plan to make Star Wars VII, VIII and IX over roughly a six-year period of time starting in 2015. But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time too."

He was keen in not stating which characters these standalone films will revolve around, but rumors are in full motion with Yoda, Boba Fett, Jedi stories, to many more. The lineup in just so rich in backstory to be mined. I'm still hoping for a Jar Jar Binks standalone film. Me so called Jar Jar Binks: The journey to me Home or something like that. 

More to come! What do you think about that move on Disney to milk Star Wars? Do you want a Yoda film?
