[Movies] Lucasfilm Says Star Wars Spin-Off Films Won't Cross Paths With Main Films
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 01.17.2014



Kathleen Kennedy recently spoke with Straits Times in Singapore in the wake of Lucasfilm's new "Sandcrawler" building opening in the country and hinted at the studio's plans for the Star Wars franchise. Kennedy, the CEO of Lucafilm, told the paper that there will not be any real crossover between the standalone spin-offs and the "saga" films (i.e. Episode I through Episode VII).

Kennedy said, "There is no attempt being made to carry characters [from the standalone films] in and out of the saga episodes. Consequently, from the creative standpoint, it's a roadmap that George made pretty clear... The canon that he created was the Star Wars saga. Right now, Episode Seven falls within that canon. The spinoff movies -- or we may come up with some other way to call those films -- they exist within that vast universe that he created."

In other words, the films will all exist within the same universe and continuity, but you won't be seeing, for example, the spin-off films intending to introduce characters who will be seen in the "saga" films and the spin-offs will utilize storylines not connected to the primary arcs of the saga.

Star Wars: Episode VII releases on December 18th, 2015.
