When George Lucas sold Lucasfilm to Disney back 2012, fans went ballistic at the news that the long-anticipated (and seemingly cancelled) Star Wars sequel trilogy was now officially happening.
Once this excitement died down, speculation soon turned towards whether or not The House of Mouse would announce any standalone films unrelated to the core movies, in an effort to exploit the cash-making machine that is the Star Wars license for all its worth.
True to form, the Star Wars Anthology series was announced a few months later, with director Gareth Evans’ Rogue One: A Star Wars Story bringing us the adventures of a ragtag team of Rebel fighters in December 2016.
Disney-Lucasfilm have also made it clear that we can expect at least two more entries in the Anthology series, and we’re told that the next of these will focus on everyone’s favourite scoundrel, Han Solo (and which should totally be titled Han: Solo; Disney execs – you’re welcome).
But what other adventures set in a galaxy far, far away can we expect? Join me now as I make like a Jedi and peer into the future of Star Wars spin-offs!
