Are Han Solo and Boba Fett and Yoda films in the works? All the rumors!

This just in: every character in the original Star Wars trilogy is getting a spinoff movie!

See, I can play the rumor game. Of course, my sources aren't anything like the ones Ain't It Cool News and Entertainment Weekly have so take my word with reservations.

In the last few days, we've had reports that Yoda, Han Solo, and Boba Fett will all be receiving standalone movies. If you push your memory back to October Disney mentioned they would not only be making the sequel trilogy, they would also be releasing other Star Wars feature films. Yesterday in an interview with CNBC, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that there would indeed be spinoffs and that they would be released in the same period of time as the sequel trilogy. From StarWars.com:

One of the standalone films will be written by Lawrence Kasdan, screenwriter of The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and co-writer of Return of the Jedi while the other will be penned by Simon Kinberg, writer of Sherlock Holmes and Mr. and Mrs. Smith. The movies will be separate from the upcoming Episodes VII, VIII, and IX, on which Kasdan and Kinberg are also consulting, and are expected to be released sometime after Episode VII. Each standalone film will focus on a specific character, and two spinoff films are currently confirmed.
Two spinoff films, two characters. Ain't It Cool News says the first one is about Yoda, Entertainment Weekly says they're about a Young Han Solo and Boba Fett. That adds up to three characters. AICN doesn't mention a source, EW lists "sources close to the project." Oh, rumors. You're so... numerous. And unconfirmed.

Forget examining the gossip. I want to start a betting pool to see which sites report correct news. I bet the Hutts would approve.

Seriously though. I'm excited about the Star Wars buzz in the air, but do you remember that scene in The Avengers where Hulk throws Loki around like a rag doll?

I'm starting to feel a little bit like Loki. Not because I'm not jazzed about new material in the galaxy I love the most - I am - but I'm also getting worn down by the way the media takes these damn near daily rumors and reports them as true. I mean, reference the above craziness from just three days. Three days! Everyone gets really wound up and forgets about it a couple of days later. Remember how some were so sure the Zack Snyder Star Wars / Seven Samurai gossip was true?

I have feelings about all of the potential candidates for standalone films. I will gladly discuss them and speculate and have fun but again, I'm not pretending it's a sure thing until Lucasfilm or Disney confirms it (Club Jade has a wonderful post about just that). I won't report it that way, and I wish a lot of others wouldn't.

More on me discussing Star Wars rumors.
