Remember it was only a couple years ago when Josh Trank was set to direct his own Star Wars Anthology film and the rumor everywhere was it was going to be a BOBA FETT film? Then right Trank went crazy and Boba Fett was thrown into the Sarlac Pit of limbo to die a slow death. Great news guys! The FETT is back! On the heels of SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY releasing in movie theaters worldwide today, The Hollywood Reporter revealed some big news today announcing that both a Boba Fett film and Obi-Wan Kenobi are indeed in the works and coming in the next few years. The Hollywood Reporter revealed that James Mangold is writing and directing the Boba Fett film but no news on when production is set to start.
Along with this bombshell, THR also revealed that a Kenobi is in the works and that director Stephen Daldry indeed is going to direct to that film but as of now there still is no script. Back to Boba. When it was revealed that Trank was set to direct a flick about the baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy everyone was curious where in the time line it would happen. George Lucas’s prequels gave us a taste of a young Boba who followed and obeyed his father Jango, almost worshipping his every move. Then it looked like we were into a revenge filled era with Boba holding Jango’s decapitated head just looking at it. Since then we’ve seen Boba Fett in countless books and even in the Clone Wars the animated series. The announcement also theoretically confirms that Lucasfilm and Disney are sticking with prequel stories for their Star Wars Anthology films. The first Anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was set directly before the events of Star Wars: A New Hope.
I’m assuming that the Boba Fett film will take place right after the events of Return Of The Jedi. Will we finally get to see Boba climb out of that Sarlacc pit? Bloodied and near death and filled with that same revenge that drove him into the life of a Bounty Hunter?
Disney and Lucasfilm have already announced a Star Wars Anthology film will be released in 2020. Now the question is: will it be the Boba Fett movie, or the Obi-Wan film? William Hayes Authentic Jersey
