    29 Supporting Movie Characters That Deserve Their Own Spinoff Films

    "I would give all my money to watch Chewbacca run around for two hours."

    We recently asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which movie characters deserved their own spinoff movies. Here are some of our favorite answers:

    1. Bucky Barnes/Winter Soldier from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "He's the most complex and intriguing character in the MCU. His backstory alone is worthy of a movie. I think it would also be great to have a movie that explores Bucky dealing with his PTSD in present day. He's worthy of more than just a supporting character role and Sebastian Stan deserves to star in his own Marvel movie."

    2. Edna Mode from The Incredibles

    Pixar / Disney

    "Edna Mode would be the perfect character for a spinoff movie! I want to know more about her life and how she built her fashion empire."

    3. Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "She has such an interesting and dark past, and I want to know more about it. There is so much material in the comics about her that would make for an amazing movie. There’s also just not a lot of female superhero movies, and I think it would be great to have more!"

    4. Janis and Damian from Mean Girls

    Paramount Pictures

    "Janis and Damian were beloved in Mean Girls! I'd love to see a prequel movie about their time in high school before Cady arrived, or even a present day movie with them as adults."

    5. Loki from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "He is such a complex, three-dimensional character who constantly struggles with good vs. evil. He deserves all the good things in the world."

    6. The Marauders from Harry Potter

    Warner Bros.

    "All we got in the movies and books were some small details about the lives of James Potter, Sirius Black, and their friends. Now, there's an entire fandom obsessing over them. We've been asking for a prequel for YEARS, and I will keep asking for one until I get it."

    7. Obi-Wan Kenobi from Star Wars

    LucasFilms

    "OBI-WAN KENOBI SPINOFF WITH EWAN MCGREGOR, with a Logan-ish vibe. THIS IS ALL I WANT!"

    8. Leah Burke from Love, Simon

    20th Century Fox

    "They could do a sequel to Love, Simon focusing on her high school experience and follow the novel Leah on the Offbeat."

    9. Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter

    Warner Bros.

    "Her life after Hogwarts would make for the perfect spinoff movie!"

    10. Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok

    Marvel

    "Valkyrie was such an important and amazing part of Thor: Ragnarok. I'd watch a movie about her any day of the week."

    11. Princess Leia from Star Wars

    LucasFilms

    "A Leia movie starring Millie Bobby Brown as a young Leia or Billie Lourd as a teenage Leia would be epic."

    12. Severus Snape from Harry Potter

    Warner Bros.

    "I want a movie series that focuses on Snape's Hogwarts days. He is so underrated."

    13. Rocket and Groot from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "They are such a lovable duo. It could cover both Rocket and Groot's origin stories."

    14. Voyd from Incredibles 2

    Pixar / Disney

    "She was such a great addition to Incredibles 2 and I would hands down watch a whole movie about her backstory."

    15. Mushu from Mulan

    Disney

    "I want to see his backstory and how he disgraced the family by almost killing one of the ancestors. That has always intrigued me and he's also just so fucking hilarious."

    whatthefreak

    16. Newt from The Maze Runner

    20th Century Fox

    "I'd watch a spinoff featuring Newt before the maze or even when he was trapped in the maze before Thomas arrived."

    youngmillenial

    17. Scarlet Witch from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "She's one of the most powerful superheroes in the comics. Like, she literally wiped most of the mutants off the planet with a little whisper! Her arc in the MCU movies doesn't do her justice."

    carolinabandeiradec

    18. Hermione Granger from Harry Potter

    Warner Bros.

    "I'd love to see Hermione's time living with Muggle parents and discovering she's a witch. It would be great!"

    19. Maui from Moana

    Disney

    "Whether the spinoff focused on future adventures or his past, I think it would be so fun. His backstory seems so interesting and I'd love to learn more about it."

    20. Michelle Jones from Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Marvel

    "Michelle was so relatable in Spider-Man: Homecoming and I'd love to see a movie focusing on her. Plus, Zendaya is just amazing!"

    gmbrigance

    21. Past Hunger Games victors from The Hunger Games

    Lionsgate

    "I feel like it would be interesting to learn about the previous games and follow former victors after they won."

    22. Frozone from The Incredibles

    Pixar / Disney

    "I'd love to see a movie about him and his family. His wife is iconic in The Incredibles and I'd love to see more about his home life!"

    sithlordjess

    23. Domino from Deadpool 2

    20th Century Fox

    "Going into her history and life growing up as someone with the ability to be very lucky would be so cool."

    gretcheno3

    24. Cyborg from Justice League

    DC Films

    "It's one thing to be a great supporting character in a great movie, but he was a treasure in a trash heap. I'm hoping there's enough interest to make a spinoff movie featuring him. His performance, I felt, was overshadowed by the movie sucking so damn hard."

    bauxjangles

    25. Chewbacca from Star Wars

    LucasFilms

    "I would give all my money to watch Chewbacca run around for two hours."

    invasivemage

    26. Hawkeye from the Marvel Cinematic Universe

    Marvel

    "In the comics he’s the sarcastic superhero we all need. Clint Barton is a normal person who developed enough skills to put him on par with Captain America and Iron Man. He is so underrated and the MCU barely does the character justice."

    kbrkljacic

    27. Furiosa from Mad Max: Fury Road

    Warner Bros.

    "While she wasn't really a supporting character, I think a movie focusing more on her would be amazing!"

    mercutio

    28. Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, Okoye, and the rest of the female Marvel characters:

    Marvel

    "That battle scene in Infinity War with Black Widow, Scarlet Witch, and Okoye only made me want an all-female Avengers movie even more. There are so many incredible women in the MCU and they deserve their own movies!"

    annastiinap

    29. Donkey from Shrek

    DreamWorks

    "Like, what was he up to before Shrek found him?!"
