Not sure how true it is

From what I read a Jabba the Hutt spinoff was only considered, not planned. If that idea goes into the next phase though, then Star Wars will have already died from oversaturation and nostalgia pandering, at least where I'm concerned.

A crappy Han Solo film is one thing but if it gets succeeded by a better spinoff idea down the line then I can live with it. An Obi-Wan film? Acceptable, especially if McGregor's back... But Jabba the Hutt?

no expression

I'd be up for a Jabba the Hutt film as long as Guillermo Del Toro does it

back in 2015, He wanted to do a film with him about his rise throughout the criminal underworld.

A Jabba the Hutt film is literally billions of times more interesting than a Han Solo or especially Obi-Wan Kenobi film. thumb down

I get what they're doing. First a spin off based on the most popular character in the OT, then the PT. Then most popular supporting character in both trilogies, and finally the most popular background character.

Makes sense. Milk everything.

Out of those mentioned I think Boba Fett would be the most different personally. We hardly see him in OT, and his film will likely explore the SW criminal underworld.

It might be for you and I, but I'm not so sure it is with Disney. KOTOR would work because it's chock-full of Jedi, I think. I just don't know if the universe has as much room to play with as Disney are willing to find out.

Why, because of the criminal underworld thing? Does have potential, but even then I think it could be more interestingly covered in a Boba Fett film. The Han Solo film never interested me to begin with, so can give you that, but Obi-Wan would garner interest depending on the kind of material a film for him covers.

Meh. As pointed out, Disney's eventually gonna milk just about every notable character or idea for the series in the end anyway...

Probably end up with a Max Rebo film the way things are going.

No, because of this:

Now tell me you wouldn't see such a masterpiece (2 hours long, let's say) in the theaters at least 10 times.

so, this will be a collection of unrelated events in Obi Wan's life, like a bunch of short films?

Nah most likely it focuses on him vs Vader one more time.

i never complained about ep7 reeking of ep4 because i feel it was actually a very well executed semi-reboot. however i was also hoping they'd make at least one new story, removed from the main trilogy timeline and characters. how many 'member-flicks do they need to crank out before we can finally see some originality and creative exploration in star wars?

I was honestly hoping that during the new trilogy, we'd get a flashback to Luke watching Vader and Ben on the Death Star, but it's McGregor fighting Vader in a better choreographed fight.

That, the fact that the protagonist would be a non-English speaking alien, as well as a villainous character presumably. All of these are firsts for the franchise (a hero descending into villainy like Anakin doesn't count), and the conflict would naturally be much more down to earth and relatable. It would be like the Sopranos (cause Jabba's fat, you see) set in Star Wars as a movie.

This is far more interesting than a story about a character where we've already seen the important bits to it.
