Boba Fett was so close to getting his own movie. Really close! The most exciting thing about Star Wars cinematic efforts was officially confirmed with Logan the director James Mangold, who was even ready to write the script. However, the prospects for the aspirants Star Wars The independent users, probably to the chagrin of Darth Vader, were victims of a proverbial disintegration.
The journalist Erick Weber, brandishing the gravity of a Twitter account marked with a blue stamp, has published a confirmation from the Lucasfilm boss, Kathleen Kennedy, that the one discussed Boob Fett The spinoff movie is "100% dead".
According to Weber's publication, the reason for the move is simple. The franchise has shifted its attention to the live-action television series written by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian; a project that obviously fulfills enough drama related to the Mandalorian bounty hunter for a fandom. Of course, it can also be inferred that the disappointing box office performance of last May Solo: A Star Wars story left the Lucasfilm / Disney coalition once she was bitten, twice shy with her once plentiful plans for splitting efforts.
While a June report of Collider He indicated that the Star Wars the spin-off efforts were put on hold, there were still rumors that the Boob Fett The film project had escaped the Sarlacc cancellation pit. In fact, the project, which had experienced several starts and stops over the years in the inferno of development, was a survivor, having manifested itself behind the scenes as different iterations, particularly with a version that was to be directed by controversy. Fantastic four Helmer Josh Trank.
The ability of the project derived from clinging to life is no surprise, since Boba Fett is one of the most popular characters in the annals of history. Star Wars franchise, perhaps only surpassed by the same Darth Vader; a notion that goes back to his introduction announced as an animated character in 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special and as an email action figure, promoting a stoic mysterious villain and extremely badass during the years of construction going to the 1980 sequel The Empire Strikes Back. In that movie, it turned into infamy by handing over the carbonite-covered body of Han Solo to Jabba the Hutt.
Of course, Boba's mystic received some success after an ignominious disappearance on screen in 1983. The return of the Jedi and his appearance – as a child – in the 2002 prequel movie Attack of the clones, which shed some light on its origin, revealing that it was the unaltered clone, raised as a son, of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, whose genetic template was used for the army that would fight in the famous Clone Wars. However, Boba remains a top-level character in the Star Wars Universe, and, even though their badassery was somewhat dazed, the fans were eager to see the damaged story elements repaired in a derivative movie, and James Mangold was definitely the man to do it.
Fortunately, despite the apparent cancellation of the film, the quintessence of the nixed Boob Fett The movie can still be shown on the small screen with The Mandalorian, which is scheduled to reach the Disney broadcast service to launch sometime in 2019.
