The whole backstory of the Star Wars spinoff films is a little nutty. We know there are mysterious spin-off films that’ll be released between the regular saga episodes. At the beginning of the development process, Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg were announced as the writers. As speculation grew on what those films would entail (Han Solo? Boba Fett? Yoda?), one executive referred to them as origin stories. Then, out of nowhere, director Gareth Edwards and writer Gary Whitta were hired to write and direct the first spinoff for 2016 release. Star Wars fans wondered what had happened to those other two movies.
