The 'Star Wars: Episode 7' universe is getting blown wide open! Just yesterday, following a rumor that fan favorite Jedi master Yoda would be getting his own 'Star Wars' spinoff movie, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Lucasfilm was in fact working on stand-alone films for "great 'Star Wars' characters," though none were specified at the time. But guess what! We don't have to wait any longer as the first two characters to get their own movies have been revealed.
Star Wars: Episode 7
'Star Wars' fans were treated earlier to a report that, in addition to the 'Star Wars: Episode 7' trilogy, Yoda might be getting a stand-alone movie. It sounded too good to be true, we know, but now it looks like the rumor may hold some water as a Disney representative has recently confirmed plans for 'Star Wars' spin-off movies for various characters. Now the question is, which ones?
There are so many directions to go with possible 'Star Wars' spin-offs, and though one of the most appealing things about 'Star Wars - Episode 7' is that it wouldn't be more back-story, there's a rumor we may get stand-alone adventures from some of the characters in the universe. And word is that Yoda might get his own movie.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' will be directed by J.J. Abrams and now that we know this, we can turn our rumor-mongering attention to who is going to star in the film. We've previously heard that Chloe Moretz was pitched for the lead role, which might mean a female Jedi will lead the new trilogy. And one of the female actors who has worked closely with J.J. Abrams over the years - Keri Russell - says she would love to be a part of Abrams' new 'Star Wars' universe.
Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard the news: JJ Abrams is officially directing 'Star Wars: Episode VII.' Even if you didn't hear it, you surely felt the rumble that shook the entire planet after the news caused the entire internet to break in half. While fans and critics alike debated what this meant for the 'Star Wars' franchise, another question arose. With Abrams departing for a galaxy far far away, what was going to happen to the 'Star Trek' franchise?
There were rumors a few weeks back that 'Star Wars: Episode 7' could have a female lead and now we know where those rumors came from. It turns out director Matthew Vaughn did meet with Lucasfilm about directing 'Star Wars' and he had a very specific idea on who he wanted to star in his version of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' - Chloe Grace Moretz.
