Could A Boba Fett Standalone ‘Star Wars’ Movie Be Closer Than We Thought?

Boba Fett

Almost immediately after Disney acquired the Star Wars franchise and announced that they would be making a new trilogy of films, there was also news of planned spin-off movies that would each center around one individual character from the Star Wars universe. Almost a year ago, we confirmed that there would indeed be Star Wars character movies, and we may be closer to hearing official news than we thought.

One of the characters that was brought up immediately as a potential candidate for a movie was Boba Fett, and now thanks to an off-the-cuff remark by TV producer and director Jon Schnepp, that rumor is getting some major fuel.

During AMC Movie Talk’s recent 24-hour podcast, Schnepp stated in a response to a listener asking if an official announcement would be made regarding the Star Wars spin-off movies:

“One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”

Lawrence Kasdan, of course, is the writer responsible for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and last year during an interview with the LA Times noted that he and Simon Kinberg (screenwriter for X-Men: Days of Future Past) would each be writing a script for a stand-alone movie, which would follow after the release of Star Wars: Episode VII. These scripts would not focus on the original trilogy or the existing Star Wars extended universe continuity. Instead Kasdan notes:

“I’m trying to start fresh. There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new.”

Has Kasdan indeed written the first stand-alone Star Wars movie? Most likely nothing but an official announcement from Disney will confirm that. Instead, treat this just as it should be, fuel for the rumor fire that Star Wars movies will be made outside of the core “Episode” films. If and when an official announcement is made, you’ll be sure to read about it here!
