It looks like Disney has confirmed that the next several Star Wars movies will be stand alone. On the table are the origins of Han Solo and/or a story involving the Bounty Hunter Bobo Fett. The former might be interesting, but the latter I'm not that keen on. I know the bounty hunter is wildly popular, but he didn't seem to do much aside from getting his ass kicked.
Han Solo on the other hand is a real bad ass (perhaps who the clones should have been modeled after) and has an interesting back story, even pulling first and killing that Greedo chap.
