3rd STAR WARS Spinoff movie could be about....
Who is rumored to be the subject of the 3rd Star Wars spin off movie?
With the Star Wars talk and rumors starting to go from a simmer to a rolling boil- I thought it would be a good time to address one of the more recent rumors regarding the stand-alone spin off movies. We are hearing that the 3rd spinoff flick is about The X-Wing Fighter Pilot group, more specifically Luke Skywalker and will be called Red Five. Now the source for this tidbit is where this gets quite interesting. At a recent Hasbro marketing trade event in Germany, the company was discussing upcoming Star Wars toys and claimed the first two spin-offs are those long rumored Han Solo and Boba Fett origin stories, and the 3rd was about the X-Wing Pilots, which of course Luke was part of and would be called Red Five. You can take that for what its worth, but our pal Germain Lussier over at SlashFilm is reporting that Star Wars news sites such as Jedi News and Making Star Wars were asked to take the report down. In the past, this has been a good indication of the validity of report.
For those unaware, Red Five was the call sign that Luke was given in Star Wars Episode 1: A New Hope by the Rebel Alliance. He was the 5th member of that squadron. I am a sucker for any origin story, but a legit Luke Skywalker origin movie is something I would love to see. Maybe the film will focus on the history of the Red Five call sign, documenting the many pilots who have used it over the years? Maybe none of this is right? What do you think?
