Walt Disney chief executive Bob Iger said screenwriters Larry Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are working on stand-alone Star Wars movies that are not part of the new trilogy already in the works.
"There has been speculation about some standalone films that have been in development, and I can confirm to you today that in fact we are working on a few stand-alone films," Iger told CNBC.
He said the movies would be based on "great Star Wars characters that are not part of the overall saga". The films would be released during the six-year period of the new trilogy, which starts in 2015 with Star Wars: Episode VII.
