Disney is working on its three spin off Star Wars movies in edition to episodes 7, 8 and 9.  These are not confirmed the plots, but examples of these plots would be about Yoda’s life before the movies, Han Solo before we see him in Episode 4 and Bobba Fett what happens to him after Clone Wars and before Empire Strikes Back.  As I said they could be anything, but one confirmation is that Gareth Edwards, the director of the recently released and very well done Godzilla will be directing the first one coming out in 2016.

Coming to Disney X D is a new animated series entitled Star Wars Rebels that will tell the story between episodes III and IV.  I have come to love the Clone War Series and this one looks intensely good.

To me the most intriguing of concepts is the new Brad Bird film entitled Tomorrowland that is slated for May of 2015.  This film is quite a mystery and if you follow Disney Parks Blog, it is an even greater enigma.  I for one am excited if only to figure out what the mystery is, but please Brad Bird, if you get  the same person who advertised John Carter run out of the room screaming informing them they don’t have a chance in Judecca.
