Star Wars: Episode VII is merely the beginning of a return to the galaxy far, far away. As was reported when Disney bought Lucasfilm, plans are for two Star Wars characters to get their own stand alone movie that will premiere in between each of the next three Star Wars films.
We know who will direct them -- Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards -- but we do not know who their subjects will be.
Might we suggest these 9 characters?

There is probably no more compelling character in the Star Wars universe than Yoda. There is no one wiser. There is no one more fierce (that fight scene!). Can you imagine a story of how Yoda became Yoda? Yeah, us too!
A stand-alone movie doesn't have to be an origins story, but we would be quite interested to see how Obi-Wan came to discover his mastery of The Force. Also, even a story about what he did between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope would be incredibly compelling!
Casting dream: Ewan McGregor for the Sith follow-up and Dan Stevens for an origins story
The biggest scoundrel in the universe is so deserving of his own movie. And we don't really care when or where it takes place. Although, a story that takes place before A New Hope could be quite riveting.
Dream casting: Aaron Taylor-Johnson
If we're going dark and giving a stand alone to a villain, there is no better choice than Boba Fett. He's a fan favorite (he's ours!) and he's just so damn bad ass. A stand-alone story could focus on what he does best: Being a bounty hunter. Thrills and action would surely ensue.
Dream casting: Supernatural's Jared Padalecki
We've gotten a hint of the other Wookies in the Star Wars universe, how about a story that just focused on the big guy? Now, dialogue might be a problem, but we can easily find ways around that.
Dream casting: Joel David Moore... think about it!
Lando Calrissian is certainly a fan favorite, which says something given that his double cross is one of the most awful in movie history. But, how did Lando get to run the Cloud City? Or, forget the origins story... have a solo adventure solely focused on his effort to keep the Cloud City peaceful.
Dream casting: Chiwetel Ejiofor or Donald Glover
