Two more spin-offs confirmed

4 posts in this topic

Well, we're already getting confirmation of an Obi-Wan solo film, but now Variety via Joblo.com is adding two more films to the list:

Boba Fett. And Jabba the Hutt.

 

Boba had been rumored for quite some time, so I don't think it's much of a surprise.

But reportedly the Jabba one was also rumored for a while (though I never heard about it?) and I think it's a bit more surprising.

 

So which are looking forward to more? Boba or Jabba?

 

I'm not much of a Boba Fett fan, but he's still more interesting than Jabba, I think.  Disney could grabbed any other ancillary Star Wars character, and it would be more interesting than Jabba, personally speaking.

Are there other characters you'd like to see get a spin-off?

I never heard rumours about a Jabba film either, but never mind.

It doesn't look like there has been any official word on these new spin-offs yet, although an Obi-Wan film wouldn't surprise me. Ewan McGregor has made no secret of his willingness to return to the role. :)

Well, these days it seems the closest we can get to a real official confirmation are these reports, lol. Until it hits theaters. :p

      in Star Wars Saga
      The Force Awakens brought Star Wars back to the big screen in 2015, and 2016's Rogue One also proved a big hit at the box office. Lucasfilm and Disney have big plans to continue the saga across all forms of media, but for many it is these blockbuster hits that we look forward to most of all.
      This list will be updated regularly to show details of the upcoming instalments of the Star Wars saga on the big screen.

      Synopsis: Episode VIII continues the saga from where Star Wars: The Force Awakens left off. Little is known about the story, which is a well guarded secret. The title was announced in January, and a teaser trailer was revealed at Celebration 2017.

    • Joss Whedon in Star Wars talks?
      in The Movies
      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.

      During an interview with Star Wars historian JR Rinzler, creator George Lucas apparently confirmed that the fan favourite bounty hunter no longer officially saw his demise in the Sarlacc pit at the end of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

      It has been long established in the Star Wars Expanded Universe that Fett had managed to escape and live a long life outside the movies, but this marks the first time that Lucas has stated that he survived the encounter.
