Han Solo, Boba Fett set for Star Wars spinoff movies



Han Solo and Boba Fett will be the subject of two Star Wars spinoff movies after the new Episode VII is filmed, according to reports. Apparently I'm the last to know this.

Says "According to Entertainment Weekly's anonymous sources, the Boba Fett movie could take place between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, while Han Solo's story would, understandably, be about the character's younger days before the rebellion, with a younger actor taking over from Harrison Ford."

There's also talks of Yoda and Jabba the Hutt spinoffs, so that should scramble your inner geek's brain enough for now. Personally, I'd get excited about a Han Solo prequel, but otherwise I'd prefer Star Wars stay more linear. And no more Ewoks!
