Star Wars Stand-Alone Movies to Include X-Wing Fighters?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

We already know that the yearly rollout of Star Wars movies from Disney has essentially begun because Star Wars: Episode VII has started production. We also have a good idea that Episode VIII will arrive in 2017 and Episode IX will land in 2019. But, what about those in between years?

Rumors have the stand-alone Star Wars films during the in-between years being one on Boba Fett and one on Han Solo. And today, thanks to a German website called Star Wars Union, they have learned that the third stand-alone movie will likely be focused on those Red Squadron X-Wing Fighters!

See, there’s a toy event put on by Hasbro that the website attended, and a lot can be derived from what toys are being promoted for the future. And given the proliferation of Boba Fett, Han Solo and X-Wing Fighters, that led to the speculation.

And we have to say this makes a whole lot of sense. Given what Star Wars fans know about those legendary fighters, they could make for an excellent stand-alone film. Anakin Skywalker himself was an X-Wing fighter during the Clone Wars and they played a huge part in the war that brought down the first Death Star.

So, according to what we have so far… here is the schedule:

  • 2015: Star Wars: Episode VII
  • 2016: Boba Fett
  • 2017: Star Wars: Episode VIII
  • 2018: Han Solo
  • 2019: Star Wars: Episode IX
  • 2020: Star Wars: Red Fighters

Star Wars Quotes

Supreme Chancellor: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis "the wise"?
Anakin Skywalker: No.
Supreme Chancellor: I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life... He had such a knowledge of the dark side that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
Anakin Skywalker: He could actually save people from death?
Supreme Chancellor: The dark side of the Force is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural.
Anakin Skywalker: What happened to him?
Supreme Chancellor: He became so powerful... the only thing he was afraid of was losing his power, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he taught his apprentice everything he knew, then his apprentice killed him in his sleep. It's ironic he could save others from death, but not himself.

Padmé: [crying] Anakin, you're breaking my heart! And you're going down a path I cannot follow!
Anakin Skywalker: Because of Obi-Wan?
Padmé: Because of what you've done... what you plan to do! Stop! Stop now; come back... I love you!
