Star Wars Origins

Stand Alone Origin Tales from Disney

At a recent investor conference, Walt Disney Co. chief financial officer Jay Rasulo revealed what is next for the Star Wars franchise. Now we know that Episode VII is the next big project on the Star Wars home front. When we will get any information on it is another story. What was so interesting about Rasulo’s talk with Disney investors was the Star Wars origin stories. 

In Variety:Star Wars trilogy film or ‘origin story film’ would also appear on the release schedule each year, starting with the seventh installment in the ‘Star Wars’ saga that J.J. Abrams will direct and Disney releases in 2015”. See the full story here

These origin stories seem to follow the Marvel Comics theme of taking one character and flushing out his/ her backstory. That is an interesting take to do this with a film. However, do we want to know what happened to Obi-Wan between episodes 3 and 4? Will it be satisfying to know that story? Can Boba Fett carry a whole film on his own? Who plays Boba Fett? The casting of Obi-Wan is easy, but can Daniel Logan or Temuera Morrison carry a film?

Sound off below Maniacs! Who do you want to see in a Star Wars origins film?

I could see Boba Fett carrying his own movie, I could see it being more action-orientated. I think it would be cool to have him hunt someone down. Maybe even a chase or competition between bounty hunters. I'd like them to explore more of the underbelly of the Star Wars universe.

Actually do a story about Boba escaping the Sarlacc pit. Like in the book Tales from Jabba's Palace . How he escaped and was nursed back to Health by Dengar.

Not what happened to Obi Wan between the films, how about how he joined the order. I for one haven't ready any of the novels and very few of the graphic novels. How about backstory for Yoda? Yes that could be a looooong movie or series of them because of his age but I still think it would be interesting. Maybe they would name his race finally (last I knew it wasn't named yet).

I would love to see MacGregor as Obiwan again.  He was the best part of the prequels.

As I sit back and watch the Clone Wars cartoons on a massive binge watch the past few weeks, I really dig this character (and the voice actor does a great Macgregor voice).

As for Boba Fett, not sure if he could lead a movie. I would not cast Daniel Logan. Temuera Morrison is too old for the part.  You know who I would choose as Boba? Manu Bennett from Spartacus. This guy is awesome and is starting to get more and more recognition (on Arrow).

Crixus as Boba Fett!!!

I remember when the possibility of origin movies about the SW characters came up awhile back some of you guys pointed out the videos of an actor who did a perfect imitation of Harrison Ford as Han Solo. Whoever he was he'd be just right for the subject of one of these.

 If Obi-Wan has his own movie, SOMEONE is losing an arm!

It was Wiseguy who told us about the kid.

His name is Anthony Ingruber. His you tube videos are amazing. He looks like a young Ford.

 @WarCry - good call


Boba Fett - if they don't think he would have the star power, you would add 1-2 A listers to the cast. That could be a great story and I would love to see it.


Obi - This could be the remake of the P.M. - showing the right way to find and raise a Jedi.

I don't think a Chewbacca movie would work...

 Boba Fett escaping the sarlac pit? LMAO, when is everyone going to understand that fool is dead, and died like a punk.  EU doesnt mean jack, and Episode 7-9 is going to prove that

Boba Fett should be like a spaghetti western, a bad man hunting bad men...
