Yoda may have to wait, as potential Han Solo and Boba Fett Star Wars movies might just be in the works...

Well blimey. Just when you think the Star Wars rumour mill has taken a week or two off, it’s been quite a busy few days again.

Yesterday, we reported (along with most of the Internet) that Disney's head honcho Bob Iger had confirmed some standalone Star Wars films, in addition to Episodes VII, VIII and IX. Earlier in the week, the rumour was that it was a Yoda movie that was in the works. Turns out, some other characters may yet be jumping the queue.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that potential spin-off projects in the works at Disney/Lucasfilm centre around a young Han Solo movie (set between Revenge Of The Sith and A New Hope), and a separate adventure about Boba Fett.

Can we start the Nathan Fillion for Han Solo campaign yet?

Mind you, don’t expect anything to happen soon. Further reports suggest that lots of ideas are inevitably being kicked around the towers of Lucasfilm, and it’ll be a while yet before it’s confirmed just which spin-off movies are pressing ahead. There’s the small matter of getting Episode VII up and running first, after all…

EW.
