Dave Filoni Willing to Helm Star Wars Spin Off

Please.

Yes.

Please.

In an interview with /Film, Dave Filoni stated he would be willing to Helm Star Wars Spin Off film. Dave is such an amazing ambassador to SW fandom. This would be fantastic news.

/Film: For the next few years, you obviously are concentrating on Star Wars Rebels. But is a Star Wars spin-off movie something you’d want to do? Would you want to get in line to direct whether it be a Rebels movie or some random spin-off movie 10 years down the road?

Dave Filoni: Oh, of course. That’s a selfish thing to say, but of course. I mean, if I were to get an opportunity like that A, I wouldn’t turn it down. B, I would see it as a great honor to do it. And I would apply all my Jedi knowledge to doing it as best I can. When I see these spin-offs happening, I’ve got definitely more than a few ideas of things that I would love to see finished and some things that makes them, I think, personally great stories.

It looks like Mark Hamill took a respite from filming Star Wars Episode VII to visit several Beatles landmarks.

The actor, who plays Luke Skywalker, visited the city while he is in the UK and Ireland filming for the new Star Wars film.

Sporting a Jedi Knight beard, he was seen in the Cavern Club and the Beatles museum at the Albert Dock, with several surprised fans sharing photos of the star on social media.
