We are in fact working on a few stand-alone films,” says Disney CEO Bob Iger. “(Lawrence) Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are both working on films derived from great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga. So we plan to make Star Wars VII, VIII and IX over roughly a six-year period of time starting in 2015. But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time too.
Ya go ahead and sign me up for all of that. Thanks.
Naturally speculation about potential “standalone films” has run amuck: everyone from Boba Fett to Yoda to a young Han Solo to a Seven Samurai Jedi Knight Ensemble Film are rumored as possibilities. The last one sounding pretty boss. Oh wait. Nevermind. It was Zack Snyder’s idea. And let’s be honest with ourselves. That guy is a baddie.
Four distinct patterns of attitude and action that have been observed again and again in human beings for over two thousand years.— Please Understand Me II p. 17
James Tiberius Kirk was born in Riverside, Iowa in 2233. Kirk enrolled at Starfleet Academy at age 17 with the backing of several high ranking officers: and had a hard-nosed reputation with a chip on his shoulder. Characterized by his bold, brash, impulsive, and yet remarkably resourceful leadership: Captain Kirk is a blazing Artisan. Indeed Kirk’s ability to troubleshoot and shoot-from-the-hip is legendary, and the USS Enterprise does what it does because of his uncanny ability to think on his feet.
Leonard “Bones” McCoy was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 2227 . McCoy is a weathered Starfleet veteran, serving as Kirk’s “friend, personal bartender, confidant, counselor, and priest.” The ship Doctor, McCoy acts as a powerful stabilizing counterweight to the impulsive and shoot-from-the-hip style of Captain Kirk. Characterized by his strict morality, his commonsense attitude, and his infamously somber catch-phrase “He’s Dead Jim”: Dr. McCoy is a classic Guardian.
Mr. Spock was born in Vulcan’s Forge in 2230. A Starfleet science officer, Spock led his year in Astrography, Comparative xenobiology, Semiotics, Quantum mechanics, Warp engineering and four other disciplines. First Officer under Captain Kirk, Spock is the voice of reason and technological know-how aboard the Enterprise. Indeed Spock is known for providing calm observation, precise data, and impeccable logic. A relentless intellectual, Spock is a prototypical Rational.
Nyota Uhura was born in the United States of Africa in 2239 . A Starfleet communications officer, Uhura studied at the Starfleet College of Communications: and is the voice of the Enterprise. Chief Communications Officer under Captain Kirk, Uhura prides herself on her graceful interpersonal contact with others, and her endearing enthusiasm. Indeed Uhura often ends up providing for the emotional well-being of Kirk and crew. Characterized by her spirituality, empathy, and intuition: Uhura is a genuine Idealist.

So, get two more guys and then it’ll be an even fight! — Uhura
