While the Star Wars spinoff films Rogue One and Solo: A Star Wars Story arguably didn’t gain as much popularity as the films in the Skywalker Saga, fans are still eager to see what origin story or subplot from a galaxy far, far away we’ll be exploring next. Thanks to The Mandalorian on Disney Plus and their upcoming Star Wars releases, we’ve been getting closer looks into other awesome characters, and we hope that trend continues.
In the interest of bringing back some standouts of the Legends canon and shining a light on some fan-favorite characters, we’ve put together this list of 25 characters who deserve a spinoff of their own. Spinoff could easily mean “give them an anthology movie,” but it could just as easily mean “give them a book or two.” Before Disney bought Lucasfilm, the Star Wars universe had a robust and thriving expanded universe. Lucasfilm then shunted most of it into non-canon status with the sequel trilogy.
However, they’ve also begun bringing Legends characters back into the fold. That’s why some of them appear on this list. Some characters are already canon.
All of them deserve at least a look-see.
