    This is where the quality control gets hazy.

    Awesome news, saw Godzilla last weekend and was wowed - definitely a Star Wars-esque vibe there. Gareth Edwards is perfect!

    I must admit that I was not a fan of Godzilla. The effects where handled very well but I disappointed with the story line, characters and character development.

    I am however, happy that they have chosen an unexpected director. Maybe he will have less to do with the script. Even more interesting if it is a Boba Fett movie which will be different to the other two films Gareth has done. Unless it is a film about a rampaging Rancor.

    Will this film be given a separate forum?

    When will we get the title/character?

    Now we have Rebels, VII and new film to think about.

    I would guess that VIII information will start to drop this time next year !?!

    I guess we could use a new forum (it's not Episode VII :p ) for this, now that we have our first confirmed spin off.

    See guys? No offense to them, but This is the level of talent many were expecting Disney to get for 7. And some of you guys have the nerve to complain about JJ

    ***Minor Godzilla Spoilers***






    FX were great/pushed the envelope, Hawaii fight=Alderaan destruction, Godzilla vs MUTOs=Battle of Yavin (end of world is at hand when someone with crazy abilities saves it), and the characters reminded me of SW characters a bit.

    I dunno, it sounds like it's going to be in the thriller genre. Is that right for Star Wars?

    Ok. I don't see it personally, but ok. To each their own.

    For the saga? No.

    For a spin-off? No idea. Obviously, I'm way more interested in the new trilogy than I am the spinoffs, and I'm not exactly head-over-heals over the director/writer seeing as they're both relative unknowns, but this could go either way tbh. They can establish whatever new 'feel' they want to this and that's interesting to me.

    I just hope it's not about Boba Fett or Han Solo.

    My common sense is telling me it's either a Boba Fett or Han Solo (since those are the two most heavily rumored possibilities and the most safe choice for the first spin off). Though my heart *and probably most of the world* wants this

    So, based on his recent success I can only assume their first solo film will be RANCOR.

    I hope it's not about little Han being best friends with little Boba (post Jango) until one took the 'good' path and the other the 'bad' path and became worst enemies.

    Gareth Edwards directing a Star Wars film? Now that's an announcement that excites me, much more so than JJ. Intrigued to see where this goes.

    And forget Godzilla. Watch Monsters. (although Godzilla was good, too).
