Boba Fett movie

Writer/producer Simon Kinberg is about to make his directorial debut with X-Men: Dark Phoenix, but he could be heading to a very different galaxy in the not-too-distant future. A new rumor reignites an old story: that Kinberg is on board to produce Lucasfilm’s Boba Fett movie, a Star Wars spin-off film that’s been in development behind the scenes for years.

Boba Fett Disintegration

Have you watched the original Star Wars trilogy and wondered why Darth Vader points at Boba Fett and insists that the bounty hunter doesn’t disintegrate the occupants of the Millennium Falcon? Me neither! I always just thought it was a cool little reference that made Fett seem more notorious and stand out from his contemporaries, but since we’re in the midst of a full-on Star Wars renaissance with new movies, books, comics, and more coming out regularly, it was only a matter of time until that little line of dialogue was fleshed out and explained.

Forty is the magic number for Star Wars this year, with a special volume coming to us from a galaxy far, far away replete with 40 authors writing 40 stories for Star Wars‘ 40th anniversary.

The volume From a Certain Point of View, which will also be released in audiobook form, gives background stories for everyone from your average X-Wing pilot to the famed Boba Fett, the infamous mercenary from The Return of the Jedi and Empire Strikes Back (who we’ve only heard with voice distortion due to his helmet). In honor of such a special occasion, it’s only fitting that Boba Fett gets an equally special voice actor for the audiobook: Jon Hamm.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Michael B Jordan as Boba Fett

Due the box-office fallout and reported behind-the-scenes trouble on the reboot of Fantastic Four, director Josh Trank ended up being removed from the next installment of the Star Wars Story spin-off series of films. The film was rumored to focus on Boba Fett, but it has now been pushed back in favor of Phil Lord & Chris Miller’s spin-off following Han Solo instead.

However, that doesn’t mean that Disney has given up the hunt for someone to step up and replace Trank in the director’s chair for the project being developed by Simon Kinberg. Reportedly, Straight Outta Compton director F. Gary Gray (who just signed on to direct Furious 8) was being considered for the Star Wars Story, and along with that, he said there’s a possibility of seeing Michael B. Jordan as Boba Fett.

Kathleen Kennedy Boba Fett

Several weeks back, very soon after Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy and Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley did a press conference in Japan. We mentioned it on the site, but didn’t elaborate further simply because the videos were in Japanese. Now that someone has translated everything said by the two ladies, we know there were a few interesting things said about a galaxy far, far away.

First, Kennedy and Ridley talked about Rey’s fighting style in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was aided by a choreographer from Game of Thrones. Then there was a tease about the importance of Boba Fett to the Lucasfilm plan. Read the new Star Wars quotes below. Read More »

Boba Fett origin

We’ve seen the story of Boba Fett‘s youth, including the events by which he was adopted as the son of Jango Fett rather than becoming one of the first generation of Stormtroopers. But we still haven’t quite seen how Boba Fett specifically became the character who appeared in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Now, we’ll see a lot more of the fan-favorite character, as the second Star Wars Anthology film will reportedly be a Boba Fett origin story.  Read More »

Han Solo

For months, we’ve heard two seemingly conflicting rumors about one Star Wars spinoff: one, that it’ll be about Boba Fett, and two, that it’ll be about Han Solo. The common assumption was that one or the other had to be false — but if this latest rumor is true, it could mean both of the other ones are, too.

Word is the Star Wars spinoff won’t be a Han Solo story or a Boba Fett story, but a single film that includes both fan-favorite characters. More on the Star Wars spinoff rumor after the jump.  Read More »
