    Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    I know I'm excited as hell
    Less than 24 hours after Walt Disney Pictures officially confirmed plans to develop stand-alone feature films in the Star Wars universe, EW is reporting that they have learned which two characters the first two projects will focus on: Boba Fett and a young Han Solo.

    Plans for the Solo film call for it to take place in the time between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy. No plot details have been revealed, but it's a near-certainty that a brand new actor would have to step in to play everyone's favorite scruffy looking Nerf-herder.

    The adventures of Han Solo pre-A New Hope was actually the focus of one of the earliest Star Wars novels, 1979's "Han Solo at Star's End", set two years before the events of the 1977 film.

    The Boba Fett film, meanwhile, would be set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and would follow the bounty hunter on an intergalactic adventure.

    Both of the the films (of which Lawrence Kasdan is said to be writing one and Simon Kinberg writing the other) are tentatively planned to see release sometime after 2015 when J.J. Abrams' Episode VII is planned to hit theaters.

    Previous rumors called for a stand-alone film to follow the adventures of Yoda, but that has not yet been confirmed.

    Let's see...George has whored the franchise in ways I would've never thought possible and Fett hasn't really been portarayed as any sort of bad *** in the Clone wars series anyway. On the other hand, Disney acquired Marvel and they're doing just fine. I see nothing but good things coming up with Boba, especially since he's one of the two guys they're leading spin-off movies with so I'm sure Disney will do everything in their power to make sure he succeeds. I don't think there's anything to worry about.

    If you've read "Boba Fett, a Pratical Man" There's alot of complexity to his character. I think Disney can run with but expect to see some Daddy issues... I'd like to see Boba Fett: Mandolore storyline

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    I don't think anything is confirmed just yet.

    Anyway, if they do make a Boba Fett movie, the helmet needs to stay on at all times. I may ruffle some feathers here but I want them to go back to the original concept of a mysterious, Eastwoodian man of few words and hope they just sort of forget about the prequels. To me Boba Fett will always be Jeremy Bulloch and Jason Wingreen so I'd like to see an effort to at least try to approximate the body type of the former and voice of the latter. I absolutely hated George inserting Morrison's voice in TESB and frankly didn't at all like Boba's backstory that he concocted.

    If Disney/LFL can put out a movie that makes no reference to the prequels and delivers a western-in-space, "Man With No Name"-type tale, with a Fett that confidently lives firmly in the "grey area" of morality and happily plays both sides when it suits him, I will be (surprised and) quite happy.

    I dunno why people keep saying these things about Disney doing this and that to Star Wars. LUcasfilm is still running the show. Disney isnt going to do anything but give green lights and money. They didnt take over Lucasfilm, they just bought it. And like Verbal said, they bought Marvel and thats doing great...honestly if i didnt know they bought Marvel....i probably wouldnt have figured it out any time soon. So i dont expect Disney to ruin any Star Wars character or Movie...its all on Lucasfilm....now can Lucasfilm ruin a character or movie...thats the question! lol

    What exactly has Disney ruined? Im with DV here, they touch something and it turns to gold.

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    Well John Carter was a "slight" flop but, personally, I'm perfectly willing to give Disney-owned LFL the benefit of a doubt until they give me a reason not to. Frankly, I think George made a great many questionable decisions/choices in the last 15-20 years, maybe even further back if you count Howard the Duck, so I'm trying to be optimistic about the new leadership.

    Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    Stoked, no question they will do a great job with the Fett Film. Yes LFL is still a seperate division within the Disney umbrella, however Kathleen Kennedy and Bob Iger are in control now and both have exceptional track records. I am very confident they will do us justice. I have lived through 2 Corporate buy-outs in my life time and when they say that such and such is staying on as a "consultant"that usually means the opposite. George is sidelined and he is out; after that Jar Jar experiment and Cryannie Skywalker character it can't possibly get worse.

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    I like the idea of a DREDD style Boba Fett movie: no helmet off, realistic/bleeding hero (or anti-hero) and the ESB era attitude. I can see an evolution of his armor and gear; in the beginning he could be a renegade super-trooper from the Mandalore system, but as the movie evolve, he should customize (or 'borrow') his armor and weapons, and we can see how he 'acquire' the Slave I ship, and I think the movie should end with a Boba Fett wearing the ESB Hero suit. If they go back to the ESB era concept and background story, this movie could be a great hit. But I can already see lots of disappointed fans, because you will never be able to fulfill everyone's dreams and demanding.

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    Well, according to the rumors, this movie will either be between ANH and TESB or TESB and ROTJ. Personally I wouldn't mind seeing him sporting something akin to the Sideshow Mythos Fett, at least at some point.

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    I love how they could go so many ways with his armor. My pick is for it to be sometime between his 1 second in AHH:SE and "The bridge" scene in ESB. It'd be nice to have a story that also mentions his eventual hunt for Solo in ESB. I'd kill to see a pristine armor as well, even if only for a second,lol

    Re: Boba Fett Movie Confirmed

    Since Lucas considers the Special Editions his version of Star Wars....adding in Boba in ANH wearing his ROTJ suit, depending where they place the new Boba movie timeline, he could be wearing either ESB or ROTJ because using the 3 OT:SE movies only, he owned two full suits at the same time.
