Disney has confirmed that "spin-off" films are in development.
Disney surprisingly confirmed that they are currently developing standalone "spin-off" Star Wars films that will focus on individual characters. On CNBC, Disney chief Bob Iger confirmed that Larry Kasdan and Simon Kinberg were working on Star Wars movies not associated with the planned Episodes VII, VIII and IX sequels.
The news was first broke by Internet relic Ain't It Cool News, who reported that Disney was developing a standalone film focusing on Yoda. The website, which hasn't changed its website design since Phantom Menace was released, also claimed that Disney was developing a movie on Jabba the Hutt.
While the spin-off rumors were confirmed, Iger did not confirm the Comicbooks.net rumor that Internet heartthrob Joseph Gordon-Levitt would be appearing in a Star Wars film in which he plays all of the characters (a la Eddie Murphy in The Nutty Professor II: The Klumps) nor did he confirm the rumor that Disney would reanimate Alec Guinness's corpse to play Obi-Wan Kenobi in an upcoming film. We'll keep you posted on those rumors as they happen.
