The Plot of the First Star Wars Spinoff Film Revealed?

by: Jay Carlson

The good folks over at /Film have just dropped a potential bomb regarding the rumored plot of the first Star Wars spinoff film.

They’re reporting that the Gareth Edwards directed, Gary Whitta written film will focus on the theft of the Death Star plans from the Empire for the Rebellion by Bounty Hunters. This of course dovetails in nicely with the beginning of A New Hope. The film is reported to be a guys on a mission film in the vein of “Seven Samurai or Suicide Squad meets Ocean’s Eleven in the world of Star Wars.”

Take a look at /Film’s piece for a bit more info on who might appear as well as what ship might make an appearance. It’s a lot of rumor and  speculation at such an early stage considering we still know next to nothing about the Star Wars film being released prior to the spinoff.

What do you think? Does the expansion of the Star Wars universe sound like it’s getting off on the right foot? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  1. Too many rumours to really have any feelings about it. Last week we were hearing about a Boba Fett movie, a Mace Windu movie, etc. etc. I have no problem with any of the spinoffs, because one thing is for certain: There won’t be just one, there will be lots, and every fan will eventually see things they have wished for.
