Los Angeles - Disney is planning "at least three" Star Wars spin-offs.

The studio previously stated their interest in releasing films to fill in the gaps between forthcoming episodes 7, 8 and 9 and CEO Bob Iger is said to have confirmed Disney will be releasing a minimum of three shows in the next ten years, during a quarterly earning stockholders call.

A reporter for, Marc Graser, wrote on Twitter:

Disney have previously revealed that they intend to release a Star Wars film every year once Star Wars: Episode VII is released in 2015, meaning the first spin-off, based on an individual character from the franchise, would arrive in 2016.

Star Wars writer Lawrence Kasdan and X-Men scribe Simon Kinberg are said to have been working on stories for the spin-offs for nearly a year, but although rumours suggest a young Han Solo could be a possible subject, no official announcements have been made.
