Boba: a Star Wars Story

Recommended Posts

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...

Hmm, I know it's been widely rumoured that a Boba Fett film would be coming but I'll take this with a pinch of salt I think.

Now, if they wanted to do a Solo sequel with Boba Fett in, I'm up for that! 👍

Welll.....   while trolling the internet for Solo Easter Eggs vids/articles, I came across one theory that the Solo, Boba, and Obi-Wan films are going to be some kind of loose trilogy leading up to something else.

Farfetched? Maybe.

 

I do think it would be cool of the Boba film focused on a few of the bounty hunters and not just Boba. Bring in Dengar, Bossk, IG-88.

They did mention Bossk in Solo, so that'd be interesting.

I suppose it all depends on what time period it's set in.

Ugh, this is all due to the poor performance of Solo, which I believe we just down to the timing of the release and the other big releases it was competing against.

That and supposed Last Jedi haters/boycotters.

 

But I'm honestly not bothered by the cancellation.

    • Untitled Cassian Andor live-action series

      So it looks like the new Disney streaming service (creatively named Disney+) will be adding a second live-action Star Wars show to its lineup.
      Joining the in-production The Mandalorian will be a series focusing on Rogue One's Cassian Andor. (So obviously this is a prequel).
      https://www.starwars.com/news/cassian-andor-live-action-series-announced
       
      Having sort of a SW spy thriller sounds like it could have good potential.  Plus there is the possibility of more K-2/Alan Tudyk. So I'M IN.
    • Star Wars - Resistance

      Just wondering if anyone watched (the premiere was Monday night on the Disney Channel; I haven't had a chance to see it yet myself) or is planning on watching?
      I know it's getting a lot of negative fan feedback because it's a "kids' show".  (Though it is strange it's on at 10 pm.) But come on, it's not like the rest of SW is all mature adult stuff.
      Or for the anime style. But I think it's kind of refreshing, to be honest, sets it apart from Clone Wars and Rebels.
       
      Anyway, here is the link to the StarWars.com page.
      And a couple trailers.
       
      I admit, when it was first announced, I was on the fence about it. Being a different animation style I'm used to. (Which is silly).
      But then I realized, heck, it's Star Wars, I know I'm gonna watch it anyways.
    • 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.
       
    • The Weird and Wonderful names of Star Wars

      A promotional tie-in for Solo: A Star Wars Story has introduced us to some great new characters we can expect to see, including the fantastically monickered Therm Scissorpunch, a crustacean-like alien with huge lobster claws for hands.
      But despite being derided as the dumbest name in Star Wars, Therm Scissorpunch is actually quite in-keeping with tradition if you only look a little.

      First up is everybody's favourite death stick dealer: Elan Sleazebaggano frequented the clubs of Coruscant before he left to rethink his life in Attack of the Clones. Although later retconned to Sel’Sabagno, Sleazebaggano is typical of the tongue-in-cheek naming convention we often see with background characters in Star Wars.
      Did you ever hear the tragedy of Notluwiski Papanoida? This background character appears in Revenge of the Sith in the corridors of the theatre. The name Notluwiski isn't too bad until you realise who the actor is: it's a cameo by George Lucas.
      Sith names also seem to be chosen for their thinly veiled meanings. Darth Maul was trained to be a weapon, and was named after one. Sidious has an unavoidable similarity to the word “insidious”, which means to act in a subtle but harmful way; much like how Palpatine chips away at the old Republic. Even Plagueis has connotations of ill intent.

      In The Clone Wars animated series, Count Dooku takes a secret apprentice with the not too subtle name of Savage Opress. There are no prizes for guessing what his endgame is.
      It would be easy to see these seemingly ridiculous names as a feature of modern Star Wars movies, but they are present in the classic Star Wars trilogy too.

      Return of the Jedi is full of interesting characters, like the elephant-like Ephant Mon, Droopy McCool of the Max Reebo band, and let's not forget Jabba the Hutt’s jester Salacious B Crumb. And if individual characters aren't enough for you you could always speak to Admiral Akbar, a member of the aquatic Mon Calamari species.
      Perhaps Starkiller was a bit too on-the-nose for the boy who destroys the Death Star, but these other names do make you wonder why they bothered to change it to Skywalker!
       
      We eagerly await the release of Therm Scissorpunch: A Star Wars Story.
       
      In the meantime, Solo: A Star Wars Story debuts on 25 May 2018 in the US and 24 May in the UK.
