The guys from StarWars-Union sent us a really interesting list of potential titles for the 3 upcoming Star Wars spin-off movies. The list was revealed on a Hasbro training course for retail employees taking place in Germany...
From StarWars-Union: (translated via Google)
One of our readers, referring to a recent presentation/training of Hasbro, he attended , we have now received the potential working title of the three officially planned spin-off films.
Hasbro showed at the event a small timeline with future milestones of the Star Wars franchises. This timeline was as follows :
2015: Episode VII
2016: Boba Fett
2017 : Episode VIII
2018 : Solo
2019 : Episode IX
2020: Red Five
We've already heard rumors about Boba Fett and Solo but this is the first time we hear about "Red Five". As you remember Red Five was the callsign of Luke Skywalker during the Battle of Yavin in Episode IV. So is this a sequel character using Luke's call sign or something like an X-Wing movie (ala Wing Commander)?
As always treat this rumor with the usual amount of salt.
It looks like Disney asked JediNews to remove this rumor from their site. Just for clarification the guys from StarWars-Union sent the rumor in a single mail addressed to several Star Wars sites. Disney contacting only one of the sites is weird. You can still read the story on 3 other Star Wars sites including the real source. In other circumstances this would have given even more credibility to the rumor. Stay tuned for more.
@starwars7news I don't know if you know this, but Hasbro asked Jedi News to remove the story. So there must be some truth to it.
