|Red Squadron readies its self to attack the Death Star in Star Wars Episode IV/Battle of Yavin/Disney|
UPDATE: 'Godzilla' Director Garth Edwards is set to direct the Star Wars spin-off, non-Saga film slated for December of 2016. No word on what the picture will be about, but the list below may point to the answer.
A stand alone Star Wars movie based on a Red Squadron X-Wing fleet? Nothing official, at least in the way of a statement from Disney studios, but word on the street, or that is to say, those who are connected to the studio via merchandising, see a very real possibility of a stand alone Star Wars film centering on the rebel space fly-boy's of Rogue Squadron. That's the rumor, anyway.
Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that there are 3 spin-off, stand-alone Star Wars films in the works that will be released during the years in-between the main saga films. J.J. Abrams helmed Episode VII is slated for a 2015 release, so that means that one of the 3 self contained stories would be in theaters by 2016.
According to Geek Tyrant, a German Web site attended a Hasbro event, merchandiser of Star Wars toys. The 'event' was nothing less than the mapping out of the future Star Wars films.
The alleged alleged schedule is as follows:
2014: Rebels (Animated sires - see trailer below)Is the list authentic? It could be. This may be a rough-sketch Disney presented to Hasbro, showing what kind of output they expect from the toy contractors future obligations. This list would also make it possible for the toy manufacturers accounting department to calculate theatrical revenue projections. Both companies would want this kind of information to make budget projections as well.
2015: Episode VII
2016: Boba Fett
2017: Episode VIII
2019: Episode IX
2020: Red Five
All we can do is wait and see.
Rebels, will appear as an animated series on Disney XD this fall.
