Our DC Entertainment source has just given us a few tidbits on a possible new Star Wars spin-off movie.
Previously, our source let us in on a possible storyline for Star Wars Episode VII involving a disciple of Palpatine and the Skywalker/Solo children.
This time, the news is said to involve a Star Wars spin-off movie taking place between Episode III and IV.
Our source notes that the Lucasfilm friend who provided the information said the idea is being tossed around.
• Set between Star Wars Episode III and Episode IV.
• Said to feature Ewan McGregor reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in his exile on Tatooine.
• The villain? Darth Maul hunting down his nemesis with a possible plot point involving a 5-year-old Luke Skywalker somehow tied into the story possibly as bait for Obi-Wan.
Again, our source notes nothing is set in stone and things for the Star Wars spin-offs are obviously in an early stage of development.
Our source previously provided us information on the first news about theMan of Steel spearheading a DC shared universe, the first news about the Justice League 2015 film and Batman 2016 reboot as well as some scenes from both the Green Lantern movie and the new Superman movie, and more.
Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date directed by J.J. Abrams.
