Josh Trank (director of Chronicle) has been hired by Lucasfilm to direct the next Star Wars standalone film. It has been rumored for some time that there would be a [Boba Fett Movie](movie:857671)trilogy, or a movie about the Rebel pilots. Disney has mentioned that they plan on releasing a Star Wars movie every year after [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158)!
You can read about everything here, but I want to show all of you this video!
In honor of Josh Trank getting a chance to direct a standalone Star Wars film I thought it was best to post one of his short films on YouTube: Stabbing at Leia's (Uncensored).
This is one of Josh Trank's older videos, way before he directed Chronicle. (The guy loves his Star Wars and superheroes, I got to hand it to him!)
Trank is currently directing the new [The Fantastic Four](movie:34667) that's set to be released on June 19, 2015, along with a sequel set for July 14, 2017.
Star Wars: Episode VII will open in theaters on December 18, 2015!
Which Star Wars character do YOU think deserves a standalone movie first?
