STAR WARS STORIES
The first two trilogies feature plenty of plot gaps and throwaway lines that could be turned into Rogue Onestyle spin-offs...
The bounty hunter that Han and the Rebels ran into on the planet of Ord Mantell changed his mind about paying off Jabba the Hutt, but what actually happened there? In the old Expanded Universe the bounty hunter was a cybernetically enhanced rogue named Skorr. We’d love to see what kicked off in the new continuity.

So many scoundrels in one place, and even though you only see most of them for mere seconds, it’s clear they all have stories to tell. A standalone set in Tatooine’s seedy underbelly could get under the skin of a wretched hive of scum and villainy – and even hang out in Jabba’s Palace.
We know that “many Bothans died to bring us this information,” but little else about them – they’ve never even appeared on screen. A companion piece to Rogue One could show how the furry spies acquired the key (albeit questionable) intel on Death Star II.
How did the taxation of trade routes to outlying star systems in the Galactic Republic come to be disputed? How does interplanetary finance work? Could the Emperor be toppled for tax evasion? Thankfully nobody in the known universe – not even George Lucas, we suspect – would ever want to see this movie.
