Kasdan and Kinsberg Working on Spin Off Films?

By: Dominic Jones

It was previously reported by the Hollywood Reporter that Lawrence Kasadan (Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark) and Simon Kinsberg (X-Men: First Class) would be writing and producing Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX.  Now it seems they may in fact be working on what could be the first in a series of spin off films (much like Marvel Studios has done).  The Hollywood Reporter is now reporting that Kasdan and Kinsberg's scripts "could turn into official “Episodes” in the main Skywalker storyline, or they could form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters."

So what do you think?  Do you want to see Star Wars follow the same model as the Marvel Cinematic Universe?  Or would you rather continue forward with the Skywalker story?  Let us know in the comments.
