Disney has confirmed that the spin-offs from its planned Star Wars trilogy will be ‘origin’ stories. You know, like Batman Begins, but with lightsabers.

A host of the series key characters are being lined up to get their own spin-off movie, with the likes of Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett topping the bill.

But what about those unsung Star Wars heroes, the guys who appear one moment in the first six movies and are Bantha fodder the next? Wouldn’t you like to see one of those guys get their own spin-off? We know we would.

In the last of a six-part series, we take a look the best looking man in the Star Wars universe… Continue reading

***WARNING! HERE BE SPOILERS!***

Yes, yes, we know E online said the new Star Wars movies would have ‘completely new’ storylines and not be based on anything already written. But you know what?
