Boba Fett movie in production?

Recommended Posts

Metalocalypse director John Schnepp has stated in an interview that a Boba Fett movie is already in pre-production.It was reported several months ago that Disney planned to intersperse the movies of the main Star Wars saga with spin-off films unrelated to the main story, but focusing on specific characters from the saga. As Boba Fett is perhaps one of the most loved minor characters from the classic Star Wars trilogy, it may be no surprise that Disney want to create an origin story for him.

Joe Schnepp revealed the information during a press interview where he said that he knew for a fact that one of the spin-off movies was a Boba Fett story written by Lawrence Kasdan and already in pre-production.

Fett received the origin treatment in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, when it was revealed that Boba was a clone of the bounty hunter Jango Fett. It is currently unknown whether a new film would explore this in more detail or take place in the gap between the classic and prequel trilogies.

With the expanded universe no longer canon, it is currently assumed that Fett's death in Return of the Jedi has been reinstated.

Saw awhile back that this was going to be one of the spin-off stand-alone films.

 

 

I'm not really sure if I'm excited for a whole movie just focused on Boba Fett. But I suppose it depends on who they get to play him (Temuera Morrison??), and which part of his life they explore. I imagine it would make the most sense to do something post-Clones/Revenge, and see him as a young adult, just getting started.

I remember hearing years ago when they were still taking about the live action TV series that Daniel Logan who played Boba in AotC was up for reprising the role. He'd be in his late 20s now, so could work in a movie set between the trilogies.

Hmm. I hadn't thought of that. And it would make more sense; though Morrison would look like all the clones/Boba, he's probably a bit too old now, lol. If they go with a younger Boba for the film.

    • Joss Whedon in Star Wars talks?

      The second Star Wars Anthology film ran into trouble recently when director Josh Trank stepped down from the project. Some reports say Trank was fired from the film after disagreements with the other key production crew members. In either case Lucasfilm are on the lookout for a replacement, and the latest rumors from Latino Review indicate that they may be looking to Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to fill that spot.
      He has already expressed a desire to move on from the Marvel universe, after helming both Avengers movies and writing for Marvel's Agents of  SHIELD television series, and perhaps Disney aren't ready to let him go just yet. Another possibility is the fabled Star Wars live-action television series which has been in development limbo for a decade but occasionally pops up in a rumor, and he is no stranger to science-fiction or fantasy on TV, having created cult classics Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse.
      No official source has yet commented on these rumors as usual, so little may come of them, but even the possibility of Joss Whedon joining Star Wars is sure to excite fans. 
    • Boba Fett: A Practical Man

      Boba Fett: A Practical Man is a New Jedi Order era eBook by Karen Traviss, released in 2006.
      The story begins shortly before the start of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, and follows Boba Fett and the Mandalorians as they combat the incursion of the Yuuzhan Vong.
      The eBook includes previews of Legacy of the Force: Betrayal and Legacy of the Force: Bloodlines, as well as interviews with the authors Aaron Allston and Karen Traviss.
      It was also included in the paperback edition of Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice.
    • The Mandolorian live action TV show revealed

      The Mandalorian has been revealed as the first live-action Star Wars television series, and is now currently in production by Lucasfilm. It will be released exclusivley via Disney's own streaming service.
      The Mandalorian is set three years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the apparent death of the infamous Mandalorian bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Through the series we will follow the exploits of a lone gunfighter in the outer rim of the galaxy, far from the centre of power of the fledgling New Republic.
      The series will be written and executive produced by Jon Favreau, director of Iron Man and Iron Man 2 Marvel movies. He is no stranger to Star Wars, having lent his voice to characters in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
      Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) will be directing the first episode, with other announced episode direcots including Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). 
      Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson join Jon Favreau as executive producers, and Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.
    • Boba: a Star Wars Story

      So it's been confirmed, per THR:
      https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-boba-fett-movie-is-happening-james-mangold-direct-1113273
       
      And a million fanboys lost their minds.
       
      Now I suppose it's speculation time... Time period? Casting Boba?  And will this be one of the other films Alden has signed on to play  Han in?
      Do you want to see what he was up to pre-ANH? Or perhaps, have Disney rescue him from the sarlacc ala the Legends/EU and do something post-ROTJ?
      Bring Temuera back?
       
       
      Dun dun dun...
