Hi folks,

I was recently asked to prepare a post for the film fan site 'Moviepilot'. They wanted to feature my Star Wars cross-over art and I gratefully accepted!

I explain in my post how, imho, the vastness of the Star Wars universe makes it an ideal place for other sci-fi characters to visit. I also think that same scale and scope means it's good news that they've decided to make Star Wars spin-off movies because we'll get to see more of that universe.

Sadly, I don't expect to see Aliens or Predators feature in any of the movies (the licensing issues alone will see to that!) - but I do hope they focus on characters that the fans want to see more of - and I'd also like to see them take a more 'mature' approach to some of the movies...

You can check out my post here moviepilot.com/stories/936001-…

bad idea in my opinion
Why?I love Star Wars and that's why I do not want spin offs, about too explode killing it always ends a saga, plus separate characters could function well but were created to be in a team with others who complement each other perfectly.

I think I understand where you're coming from. I agree that the core 'team' of the original Star Wars movies work well together. Their clearly defined character 'types' complement each other and might not work so well on their own without that balance. Maybe that's why the possibility of the Han Solo prequel showing him as a kid doesn't really interest me!?

in part, but I love to have it but see it on your own it would be interesting not so much as see it integrated, and is part of the story, do not see why having a lifetime.
PS: I do not speak much English, so maybe something does not make sense for the bad google translator

I always want more Star Wars. Movies, TV shows, Books, Comics, etc. Everything Star Wars! It is such an awesome, huge universe to play in!

BUT...

It needs to be done right! Stick with stories and method of the original trilogy. Don't do ANYTHING that changes the view of the The Trilogy. Like... removing the mystery from from Boba fett. Bad move. But hey, I think an entire HBO or AMC series for the "Tales Of" books would be AWESOOOOOME!

They very nearly did make a TV series (you probably know that already) - and I wouldn't be surprised if they were going to base it around the 'Tales of' idea because it was supposedly going to feature some of the lesser-known characters and those in the background. They claimed that it never happened because it would have been too expensive to film it though. So I guess we can thank Disney for stepping in and making sure we will at least get to see some new filmed material! But I agree with you that they need to be very careful about how they treat their new toy. I don't think anyone would be happy at any tinkering with what we know from the original trilogy. And let's face it - the whole 'Han shot first' fiasco should have taught them that! :lol:

I think it's better for the spin-off stuff to remain in graphic novels/animations like they are now. Only the main storylines should be made into films.

I think it's a marvelous idea, because it would give characters who previously were either seen very little or else were confined to the books a chance to shine in the spotlight. It would provide legitimacy to certain characters, like Salla Zend, Kyle Katarn, and Talon Karrde, as well as showcase parts of the universe that were previously unseen.

Interesting point on whether they'll stick with the EU stories or introduce any of those characters? I think it provides an ideal opportunity for them to do that - but I read that the stand alone movies will feature Boba Fett, Han Solo and Yoda - so I'm not sure how any of those characters might cross paths with those you've named. I'd definitely watch a Boba Fett movie... but I'm not so sure about Han Solo or Yoda prequels. I hope they mostly stick with the time after Episode 6. Although I do think it would be great to have a stand alone Darth Vader movie.

Well, Sala Zend was an old friend of Han Solo. They could also show Mako Spince, who was his friend at the Imperial Academy.

Kyle Katarn was a Rebel agent, but before that he was a Stormtrooper, so they might show him in a cameo.

Talon is an information broker and has a spy network. No reason why one of the characters (likely Boba Fett) couldn't meet up with him as well.

I'm excited about both Fett and Solo. Fett has always been an interesting character, in a Master Chief sort of way (actually, that could be reversed). Solo would be great because we could see his exploits before he joined the Rebellion, such as his helping Chewbacca escape. I know a lot of this is covered in books and comics, but it would still be awesome to see it.
