Originally posted by Mayhem I have no problem with these at all, as long as they're well done ...
I think a story of young Han Solo is actually quite interesting ... especially how he came to know Chewbacca, Lando, etc ...
Agreed. The continuity for Han begins when he steps foot into the the Cantina in Ep 4, so they should not be able to mess that up as they did in the X-men prequels somewhat. Same goes with Fett, really.
I am coming around more and more to this as they release information.
The continuity from Han actually begins with the preexisting Han Solo trilogy.
Could possibly even do a spin off on Palpatine. His back story, training under Lord Plagueis and himself training Darth Maul (who was the only good thing about The Phantom Menace and needed more screen time).

The other part of his appeal is that it is limited. His jackassadry makes for a nice side story, but I can't imagine an entire show being based around it. I think there is potential in The Office spinoffs, but not "The Farm"
