List Rules Vote up characters who do not yet have a standalone Star Wars film in development, but totally should.

Disney plans to produce Star Wars spin off films every other year, between the core movies in the ongoing saga. With a rabid audience and a large mythology to draw from, Star Wars movies will be hitting a multiplex near you until the sun explodes and destroys us all. Maybe even after that; all that remains of the world as we know it will be cockroaches, Twinkies, and Star Wars movies.

But which Star Wars characters will end up in standalone movies? Who is deserving of these Star Wars spin offs? Should they make films of the classic core characters? We know we're getting a solo Han movie, but maybe Leia too? Should filmmakers explore the backstory of some of the supporting classic characters? How about the very obscure? How did Salacious Crumb end up bro-ing out with Jabba? Maybe Greedo deserves a movie to tell his side of who shot first?

And that's only the original trilogy. The Force Awakens and the prequels are dense with Star Wars spin off potential as well. Just imagine a dashing Poe Dameron adventure or even a Citizen Kane-style epic chronicling Boss Nass's brutal rise to power in Gungan politics. But it's not up to us to decide who's worthy, it up to you! Vote up the characters you most want to see in a spin off film!

501st Legion is listed (or ranked) 17 on the list Which Star Wars Characters Deserve Spin Off Movies?
Kurtis Thomas LaBreche added 501st Legion

The 501st Legion, also referred to as the 501st Battalion and later known as "Vader's Fist," was an elite military division of the Grand Army of the Republic. Consisting of highly-trained clone troopersengineered by Kaminoan cloners, the 501st served under the command of the Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker throughout the Clone Wars.Although the 501st faithfully served both the Republic and the Jedi, the clone troopers were compelled by their programming to execute Order 66, a secret protocol designed to force the clones into killing their Jedi officers. As such, the 501st marched on the Jedi Temple of Coruscant and, with the aid of Skywalker—now the appointed Sith Lord Darth Vader—proceeded to purge its inhabitants, including Padawans and younglings. Afterward, the 501st gained the nickname "Vader's Fist" and continued to serve as his personal stormtrooperlegion under the new regime of the Galactic Empire.
