Why is this considered a “spin-off” and not simply another “prequel”? Also, at what point are they not spin-offs and prequels and simply movies within a certain universe?
I’m assuming this is considered a spin off because the action isn’t centred around a Skywalker. So it’s not an instalment of the ‘saga’ rather it runs parallel to it. That’s my understanding of it anyway.
I hope the movie shows them destroy an early protégé of the Death Star by exposing a mundane flaw. That hasn’t been milked enough yet!
While I would love to see a film about a giant planet-destroying satellite mentoring ANOTHER giant, planet-destroying satellite…I think you mean prototype.
I thought Episode 8 was coming out in 2017, oh wait , now I’m slightly remembering it got pushed back.
