The next new Star Wars spin-off may be announced this summer

Star Wars spinoff

With ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY now grossing over a billion dollars worldwide, I think it's safe to say that Disney and Lucasfilm's spin-off experiment has been a success. Audiences obviously have an appetite for movies which don't deal directly with the Skywalker clan and the studio is now in the process of mapping out just where these spin-off's will go following ROGUE ONE and the upcoming UNTITLED HAN SOLO STAR WARS ANTHOLOGY FILM.

While speaking with MTV, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said that an official announcement of what the next spin-off film will be is hopefully on the way.

I think we’re getting close. My hope would be sometime around the summer. I never want to predict the creative process because it is its own thing, so we’re in the midst of those discussions right now.

It's not yet known which character or era this next spin-off will revolve around, but before he departed the project, it was said that Josh Trank's STAR WARS spin-off would have focused on Boba Fett himself. In a report by Entertainment Weekly last November, the Boba Fett project apparently came incredibly close to being officially announced, with Lucasfilm even prepping a teaser reel to show off at Star Wars Celebration 2015. The split with Josh Trank put those plans on hold and the nature of Lucasfilm's next spin-off is unknown, but I'd be shocked if Boba Fett didn't make an appearance at some point in one of these projects.

What are your hopes for the next STAR WARS spin-off film and which characters or eras do you hope will be explored in future movies?

An Obi Wan Kenobi film with McGregor would be amazing.

Focus on the Dark Side

Honestly, the most charismatic and interesting characters are the antagonists of the series. I think they should focus on the Republic/Empire's side of things. Give us a hero turned villain story focusing on the dark side contained in one story (rather than Anakin's turn).

Why not a film exploring the universe hundreds of years before the prequels. Like the Knights of the Old Republic series

And here...

I was hoping for Admiral Ackbar: Year One

In all seriousness, can we all just be given want 90ish percent of what SW fans want and that is a Boba Fett driven story, there's so many interesting was that it could go. But, enough with all the Jedi focused story telling already, been there, done that, there's really nothing else we need to know or haven't seen in varying Jedi battles and training sequences... Please! Enough!

It will probably be Boba Fett but I'd rather have either an Ahsoka lead live action movie or anything about the Old Republic era.

I assume it's a Nien Nunb origin story.

You can bet the next film will be a female lead

Considering what they've done with this franchise, and now even Battlefront 2 has a female at the core of the game story.. Face it, after Luke is killed, the SJW transformation of the Star Wars Universe will be complete. Fuck this bullshit. And do tell, how a female the size of Felicity Jones becomes a commander? Sorry, but you have to be a bad ass to be a commander in any army, and having the build of a little boy does not cut it.

Wow! You are a moron. First of all see was never a Commander. She was a prisoner and the Rebel Alliance broke her out to use her to get into Saw Guerrero's hideout. After that she tries to convince the Alliance to attack Scarif for the plans... Even if that was the case does it really matter? You're probably just trolling or a complete idiot so there is no point arguing with you.

I detest SJW agenda, but frankly outside of Force Awaken's mary sue Rey, Star Wars has been great for strong powerfuil women without an obvious agenda. Leia was awesome and was a strong female before they started with the agenda driven bullshit. Since her in Star Wars universe there have a been a lot of female lead stories around the galaxy. Hell my favorite Jedi is Ahsoka as she is one of the best and deepest developed characters in Star Wars. I can honestly say the majority of female

Hell my favorite Jedi is Ahsoka as she is one of the best and deepest developed characters in Star Wars. I can honestly say the majority of female presence, whether its lead or ensemble, feels agenda free. I don't care whether a Jedi is a man or woman as long as its a good story. Rogue one didn't feel like there wqas an agenda to me, Force awakens however was pure agenda by making the first female jedi lead a god that could kick the crap out of every male around her with no training at all.

Look what you just did in this comment, thrust your own biased agenda onto us. You are an SJW too. It is not just the extreme right who are SJWs. The alt-right. ALL extremism needs to go away, and that includes yours!

And they aren't even doing female leads only coming up, or are you under the impression that Han Solo is a woman?
