The incredible success of Legendary Pictures' and Warner Bros.' Godzilla has gained the film's director, Gareth Edwards the attention of another massive studio - Disney! That's right, tonight, it was officially announced that the talented director has signed on to direct one of the three Star Wars spin-off films which will release a year after Star Wars: Episode VII, on December 16th, 2016! The plot of this spin-off is still unknown but could involve the backstory of Jedi Master Yoda, or the famous Bounty Hunter, Boba Fett! Speculations are already circulating online but until Disney officially release a statement, we won't know for sure.
