u201cRogue One: A Star Wars Storyu201d (2016). The first stand-alone u201cStar Warsu201d film is set between Episodes III and IV with a group of rebel fighters trying to steal the plans for the Death Star before it can be completed.

u201cEpisode IV: A New Hopeu201d (1977). The original. Farm boy Luke Skywalker yearns to join his friends in the Rebellion. He meets a grizzled old man named Ben Kenobi, two droids, a feisty Princess Leia, rogue pilot Han Solo and the ultimate man in black, Darth Vader. Let the adventure begin.
u201cEpisode V: The Empire Strikes Backu201d (1980). Luke starts his Jedi training with little green Master Yoda. Ever-impatient (sound familiar?), Luke is lured into a trap by Darth Vader, who has captured his friends. But what is Vaderu2019s interest? Hello, Boba Fett.

Coincidence?
u201cEpisode VIII: Untitledu201d (2017). This is a spoiler-free zone. Besides u2013 do you really trust all of these u201cleakedu201d scripts? Suffice to say, weu2019ll learn more about Reyu2019s origins, get some u201cclarityu201d on Kylo Ren and weu2019d better see a lot more of Luke Skywalker.
Untitled Han Solo (2018). The next stand-alone anthology film is a look at the early u201cscoundrelu201d days of young Han and his pal, Lando Calrissian. Could we see the card game where Lando lost the Millennium Falcon to Han? Pressure is on young stars Alden Ehrenreich (pictured, Han) and actor/musician Donald Glover (Lando), who have some big shoes to fill.
Untitled (2020). This anthology film has been confirmed, just not the subject. One thing is certain: Disney will have many angry fans if itu2019s not the much talked-about Boba Fett film.
