"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away..."
Why hasn't someone already thought of this? Now that George Lucas has passed the lightsaber on the Star Wars franchise to Disney, here's what we know so far: There will be a Star Wars VII, directed by J. J. Abrams, who successfully relaunched the Star Trek frnachise in 2009. (Star Trek Into Darkness in theaters this May!) Star Wars VII: Blowing Your Mind, should be in theaters in 2015.
Now comes word of solo, breakout films...
Disney CEO Robert Iger confirmed that there are a number of Star Wars spinoff films coming down the pipeline in addition to the trilogy that will pick up after Return of the Jedi. He told CNBC, "We are working on a few stand-alone films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga."
The first of these is one focusing on Jedi master, Yoda. There is no truth to the rumor that Eric Bana and Edward Norton will in NO way play a role in this new green one's film. There is also no truth to the rumor that Mark Ruffalo has already been cast. But, The Hulk is part of Disney/Marvel's "Phase Three" following The Avengers sequel. It is rumored that at the end of The Avengers 2, The Hulk will be launched into outer space, fight his way back to Earth, and will be featured in a film called "Planet Hulk" an adaptation of a recent comic book storyline and animated feature.
No word on whether or not Yoda and The Hulk will meet on screen at this time. But, how cool would that be?
Beyond that, who wouldn't spend good money to see Han Solo, Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian in a Star Wars buddy flick together? Or maybe a Quentin Tarantino bounty hunters movie?
Also, there is no truth to the rumor that Warner Bros. issued a simple press release yesterday with the words, "Hey over here! Look at us! We're still trying to figure out how to bring our DC Comics characters like Justice League to live action! We're committed to getting spanked at the box office by both The Avengers 2 and Star Wars VII in 2015!"
