When Disney acquired LucasArts, word spread like wildfire that they were going to expand on the Star Wars cinematic series. Star Wars Episode VII has been the main focus of many fans’ minds since then, but were they forgetting something?
Along with the plans for a new installment in the main series, Disney is planning on producing a number of standalone films for some of the characters in the galaxy far, far away. Number one on that list apparently: Boba Fett.
Fans of the Fett can rejoice though as it seems he will be getting his own film in the near future, says Metalocalypse director and self-described "sweaty movie nerd" Jon Schnepp.
"I know they haven't announced it," he told the host of AMC's Philippines disaster relief charity talk marathon, "but one of those one-shots is Boba Fett. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan."
While Schnepp’s comments have not yet been verified as fact, it does seem likely that Fett will be given the standalone treatment. Gaining a remarkable cult following after the events of the original trilogy, Boba Fett was a character that many fans have been begging to see more of over the years. Therefore, it seems like a no-brainer that Disney would capitalize on this demand, giving the character his due justice (let’s just pretend like Episode II didn’t happen).
Would you want to see a Boba Fett movie? Do you think that the character still has more to give, or was Episode II enough? Let us know in the comment section below!
