Obviously this cant be confirmed or denied, but I found this

Despite the secrecy involved in the production of "Star Wars: Episode VII," few movie spoilers, from plot details to set photos, have managed to circulate online.

Since then, Luke Skywalker's fate and whereabouts since "Return of the Jedi" has been a much-talked about topic.
A recent claim from discusses the possibility that the Jedi Master "hasn't been missing for a full 30 years."

Previous reports claimed Daisy Ridley's discovery of the lightsaber on a desert planet led to the quest for the search of the Jedi Master. Together with John Boyega, their search for the rightful owner of the weapon leads them to meet the Millennium Falcon's pilots, Han Solo and Chewbacca.
They claimed they haven't had contact with their friend Luke Skywalker in 30 years since "Return of the Jedi." However, contrary to this rumoured timeline to Luke's disappearance, claims he went missing for "only about 10" years.

During those early years he spent most of his time rebuilding the Jedi Order. "Luke had some things to do, in order to help get things back on track after the fall of the Empire," Billy Donnelly wrote.

Likewise, with his disappearance, Luke Skywalker reportedly "has grown so powerful with his command of the Force." A mere glance is all it takes to "literally move mountains or bring down ships."

According to Making Star Wars, Billy Donnelly's report somehow coincides with actor Mark Hamill's statement on his character for "Star Wars: Episode VII."

During the Egyptian screening for "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi" in 2013, the actor hinted Luke Skywalker will no longer be very much involved with lightsaber fighting. Instead, in "Star Wars: Episode 7," his powers will be more like of a wizard. Like what Donnelly said, moving mountains by sheer glance speaks "wizard" powers.

Additionally, in those 10 years he has gone missing, Luke Skywalker reportedly went into self-imposed exile. However, he spent his days as an outcast in Yoda's home planet, Dagobah.

The site adds his Dagobah escape somehow contradicts previous speculations regarding the filming of "Star Wars: Episode VII" in Skellig Michael. Rumours have it Daisy Ridley, whom some say will play the role of Kira, found and rescued the Jedi Master in the island.

However, these are basically still considered speculations and mere rumours. J.J. Abrams has been very cautious when it comes to revealing details of his sci-fi film. "Star Wars: Episode VII" opens in U.S. cinemas on Dec. 18, 2015.


Also it looks like Obi Wan Kenobi might be getting a standalone film as well, like its rumored to be along with Boba Fett.

In addition to the upcoming continuing installments of Star Wars – Episode VII will kick off the reinvigorated film series – Lucasfilm will also be releasing three standalone spinoff movies to fill the time between official episodes. Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) and Josh Trank (Fantastic Four) have already been tapped to helm two of the spinoff films, the first of which is expected to premiere in 2016. According to rumors, these movies could revolve around Han Solo, Boba Fett, and/or an X-Wing squad.


Some more info about the other possible spin off movies:

When Star Wars first released in 1977, it not only revolutionized visual effects, but also a major facet of movie marketing: merchandising. Today, leaked toy images and box art text can lead to a bevy of rumors, but seeing as they have their origins in official tie-in merchandising, the rumors usually contain a grain of truth.

Which is more than can be said for the majority of rumors about Disney’s and Lucasfilm’s future plans for the Star Wars franchise. We’ve known for some time that more films than Episodes VII, VIII, and IX were planned, with Disney/Lucasfilm confirming they intend to release a new Star Wars movie every year (beginning with Episode VII in 2015). As for who or what those movies will be about, the more popular rumors suggest origin stories for Boba Fett and Han Solo, or even a film centering on a young Yoda.

Continuing this tradition of a movie’s toys potentially revealing pertinent information earlier than any promotional material or press release, a recent Hasbro event may have unveiled just what Star Wars spinoffs are in the works. German website was in attendance and are reporting Hasbro potentially revealed Star Wars film lineup through 2020, including projects titled Boba Fett, Solo, and Red Five.

This news was later reported by well-known Star Wars blogs Jedi News and Making Star Wars, but those sites have since been asked to remove the information. And depending on how you’d like to interpret that, the requested removal could add more credence to these rumors or not.

Here’s the release breakdown as revealed at the Hasbro event:

2014: Rebels
2015: Episode VII
2016: Boba Fett
2017: Episode VIII
2018: Solo
2019: Episode IX
2020: Red Five

For the most part, this aligns with the rumors we’ve been hearing for a while, specifically the talk of spinoff films for Boba Fett and Han Solo. Though, it should be noted a project named Solo wouldn’t necessarily feature only Han, especially since it’s been widely assumed the Solo children will be appearing in the new trilogy. A Solo family adventure, perhaps?

Most interesting, however, is the Red Five project. What could that imply? Well, “Red 5″ was Luke Skywalker’s call sign during the Battle of Yavin at the end of A New Hope. It’s been reused by a few characters before and since, but it’s almost always associated with a pilot, specifically an X-Wing pilot, in the service of the Rebellion.


I dont know if this is good or not, but it looks like Disney is going to flood the market with Star Wars films. The draw for me with the series is the movies had long breaks between films, making us fanboys panting and chewing at the bit for more. If they throw this stuff out left, right and sideways, does that take away from the allure of the series?

They could equally have just read the books and put storylines into 'leaked plot' format.

I remember when little there were rumours about a movie being based on the Boba Fett book Hard Merchandise, and rumours of a movie or cartoon based on the Rogue Squadron video games. If only.

Working pretty well for Marvel, even DC and WB have jumped on the expanded universe bandwagon, they have a huge schedule coming up.

The only thing that is going to bug me is the fact that they will obviously have to cast younger characters to portray Han and the others. I just can't see anyone but Harrison as Solo and it will totally throw off everything from the original trilogy.

I never thought I would say this, but lately, I've been thinking a complete overhaul of Star Wars is needed. Star Wars fans would be jumping off a bridge, but I almost feel like Disney should have just started over and re-made Episode's I-VI with a brand new cast. That way there wouldn't be any continuity problems with cast members, special effects, etc. It would also be an opportunity to fix Episodes I-III. As far as IV-VI, they could just remake the films shot for shot with maybe some slight tweaks to Jedi.

Release restored versions of the original trilogy as they were shown in the theaters to satisfy the hardcore fans and then re-film the whole thing and the new trilogy plus the separate movies in between using the same cast, production values, etc. Would it be a humongous investment? Of course. However, think of the goldmine these movies would produce in addition to bringing up a whole new generation of Star Wars fans.

What do you think?

The only site I really trust as somewhat reputable on this topic is Star Wars Episode 7 News .. no I'm in no way affiliated with them whatsoever.. I just follow their news and they seem to be spot on usually, and if they doubt it they are clear to tell you ..

With that said.. we already know spinoffs are coming, it's just none of the characters have been confirmed for those spinoffs... it's clear Disney plans to squeeze every drop from the franchise ..

One little spoiler for sure is that we know we'll be seeing Vader in episode 7
... well .. at least his mask/suit .. what significance that has isn't clear.. but also another rumor I heard is that Han doesn't have the falcon anymore, but he does get it back.. which is obvious since Harrison was injured on a falcoln set..

That's not true for Episode 7 at least, but yeah if they do a spinoff series that takes place too far back then Harrison would have to be replaced.. but he's certainly in Episode 7 ... and they may already have someone in mind for his younger self because there's supposed to be some flashback scenes .. that would be a good way to introduce a spinoff actor.

I think Disney is a bit more innovative than what people are giving them credit for. I doubt they would be foolish enough to completely write off old characters, but at the same time should introduce some interesting new concepts to the series. I think they did a great job on the Pirates films (first 3 anyways). I believe they are fully capable of releasing a franchise suitable to be a successor...and to satisfy the hoard of fans out there.

To be honest, I wouldn't want to see a whole lot of wrinkled and chunky Hamill or Harrison simply for the fact it would seem like the movie is trying too hard (did we really need Kingdom of the Crystal Skull?). I wouldn't mind seeing them in the advisory capacity though such as what has been hinted at; would be a nice continuation of the saga. Just like how Obi Wan once starred in the films, he became the old and wise mentor for the new generation. This will be the proving ground for Disney. Depending on the success or failure of 7, they may be allowed complete creative capacity in the future.

Maybe not. This is Disney. They might do something with animation.
