Lawrence Kasdan, Simon Kinberg Might Do Star Wars Spinoffs Instead of Episodes VIII and IX

Every day we are a day closer to new Star Wars movies, and each new dawn brings another tidbit of information. Today's update is that Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinsberg aren't necessarily writing Episodes VIII and IX. They're still both writing Star Wars movies, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, those movies could be separate from the main story line and be more like spinoffs rather than part of a new trilogy. (Think Avengers.) Does this mean we can start advocating for an Ewok domestic drama? Like August: Endor County? Starring Wicket? Someone, please make this.
