Ever wonder whether Chewbacca was bullied in high school? Moviegoers may soon get to see the secret lives of Wookiees on the big screen. According to Disney execs, the upcoming Star Wars spin-offs will unearth the origin of some of the series' most memorable characters. Beyond Episode VII, which will kick-start a new trilogy in 2015, Disney is planning to release at least two standalone films from writer Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past). Early rumors have pegged the spin-offs as the possible origin stories of Han Solo, Yoda and Boba Fett, recently voted fan favorite for a comeback. Meanwhile, Ewan McGregor is already brainstorming plotlines for his dream Obi-Wan Kenobi project. But before we start the petition against the unknown who'll be cast as young Han Solo, check out the 10 other Star Wars characters who deserve to be the lead in their own film. Oscar Raymundo
