On This Day: May 7, 2014


By Ciaran Duggan,

Disney's Bob Iger announced that there would be "at least three" stand alone Star Wars movies released within the next decade back in 2014.

The Disney CEO said the films were set to be released in-between the Saga films.

In December 2016 the first of these stand-alone films was released and a film which Kathleen dubbed as a great success at Celebration Orlando 2017 - Gareth Edward's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.

The next stand alone film is scheduled for release on May 25, 2018 - Phil Lord and Chris Miller's untitled Han Solo stand alone movie.

Alden Ehrenreich has been cast as the young Han Solo, with Donald Glover set to play Lando Calrissian. Other stars of the movie include Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson. 

Rumors have also circulated that the title for the unnamed Han Solo movie will unveiled at D23 this July. Little detail has yet emerged about the third stand alone film Bob Iger spoke of back in 2014. 

What would you like to see the next stand alone movie be about? Would it be character driven (like Han Solo), story driven (like Rogue One) or something completely different?
