"Star Wars" spin off???

I recently posted about one of the writers from "Empire Strikes Back" returning to the Star Wars franchise, now there is contradictory information about the upcoming trilogy being more of a spin-off than a continuation from "Empire Strikes Back".

"Apparently, Kasdan and Kinberg have been hired to work on films that would be like spin-offs, and that’s why the writers would also be producing the films themselves. The trade says these films are “not necessarily Episode VIII and Episode IX” but “could turn into official ‘Episodes’ in the main Skywalker storyline or they could form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters.” Honestly, we’re not sure what the hell that means, but we’re going to try and figure it out."

According to Huffington Post, Disney has plans to release as many as three films each year from the LucasFilm setup. Does this mean Disney are going for an "Avengers" style formula by introducing us to multiple characters then going for a trilogy of blockbusters? Anybody think this would work?
