Star Wars standalone movies confirmed!

Star Wars Logo (1920 1080)CEO of Disney Mr. Bob Iger has confirmed that besides the upcoming trilogy of Star Wars movies we will also be getting some standalone movies set for release around the same time.

As you guys probably heard by now the first movie, Star Wars 7, is scheduled for a 2015 release and will be directed by J.J. Abrams. So far, no details are known about the standalone movies but it does seem that Disney intends to recuperate the roughly 4 billion it paid to get the franchise quickly. I hope it won’t come at the cost of the franchises creative quality. Somehow I got this image of generic Star Wars movies akin to X-Men or that vampire franchise starring Kristen Stewart that I dare not name.

So far, the internet has been abuzz with suggestions from fans about what the standalone movies should be about. Most have mulled a Yoda centric movie as their fancy. I can’t really make up my mind about what I want. Somehow that moment when Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) looks at a double sunset to the music of John Williams is going to fade ever more into memory and nothing is ever going to supplant it.
