Star Wars First Spin-Off Plot Rumors

Whilst all the talk today is about the 88-second teaser trailer release for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” in select cinemas this Friday, a new rumor has emerged over at Slashfilm which claims to have scored early details on what the storyline could be for the next film off the shelf – Gareth Edwards’ 2016 first “Star Wars” spin-off.

The site’s source claims that the film is set during the era of the original 1977 “Star Wars” and is essentially a heist movie with a group of bounty hunters being hired by the Rebel Alliance to steal something vital – the plans for the first Death Star.

Their source also says the Millennium Falcon is somehow involved, but Han Solo is not a character in the film. Also a main character of this film will be introduced in ‘The Force Awakens’. Secondary sources of theirs suggest their story has “a few strings of truth, but might not be the whole truth.”
