‘Star Wars:’ A Boba Fett Movie Is in the Works

Boba Fett first debuted in 1980's Star Wars: Episode VI - The Empire Strikes Back.

Crafting Boba as a new man trying to leave a violent legacy behind might be an intriguing angle to explore, one similar to the tale Mangold succeeded with in Logan.

The announcement comes concurrent with the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the first standalone Star Wars film to focus on one particular character. While the prospect of a Boba Fett movie will surely be exciting for some fans, it will probably be a while until we get to see the film. Most recently, it was rumored that X-Men writer-producer and Dark Phoenix director Simon Kinberg was working on the Fett movie.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Lucasfilm have made a decision to pursue a stand-alone film based on popular bounty hunter Boba Fett - you know, the guy who spoke 27 words total in the original trilogy before being unceremoniously dumped into the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi - and Logan director James Mangold will take the helm.

Mangold past year brought prestige to the super hero genre with Logan, which he co-wrote and directed; the movie was produced by Kinberg. "Solo" was expected to be the lowest-performing of the "Star Wars" movies under Disney, but the new forecast undercuts analysts' estimates and signals a poor public response.

The objective of this roundup is to put all the Star Wars news from the week of May 25, 2018 in one location.

Lucasfilm is developing movies on a slew of characters, including Obi-Wan Kenobi. His coolness factor took a hit and reminded us that sometimes a little bit is just enough.

Billy Dee Williams, who played Lando Calrissian in the original Star Wars trilogy, also does not appear in the new movie. His subsequent movie appearances never lived up to that, with a comical death in Return of the Jedi and a young version of the character turning up in Attack of the Clones.

Mangold can shift to a more surprising perspective though, opting to reveal Boba survived the sarlacc pit he fell into in Return of the Jedi. As of writing, neither Disney nor Lucasfilm has confirmed the reports.
