Latino Review posted this story regarding a possible plot twist that will shape the story of the stand alone Boba Fett movie (although Jesse Plemons has already debunked one of LR’s other claims in that post):
To counter-act the prequels, the Boba Fett spin-off movie planned for 2018 has an interesting twist pitched by Episode VII writer Lawrence Kasdan: the spin-off will start with a complete stranger killing Boba Fett and taking his armor, starting a Man-With-No-Name bounty hunter tale. So: someone kills the Boba Fett from the prequels and takes his armor and name. One thing is for certain is that Kasdan didn’t like the prequel and wants no Boba Fett Clone in the spin-off film. Sounds a lot like a Western and it sounds like it could restore a fan-favorite character that was totally a little boy with thousands of versions of his father running around. Or it could just be a lot of stupid rib-elbowing about this stranger doomed to fall into a Sarlaac pit in the most anti-climactic franchise exit ever.
It’s not quite as bad as the notion of a Force-sensitive, lightsaber wielding retconned Boba Fett, but this still seems a little too convoluted and forced. Most importantly, take this all with the tiniest grain of salt possible, since Star Wars movie “news” leaks daily and is then debunked faster than Tom Hanks can disappear an iPad.
Although Disney has not officially announced a Boba Fett spinoff film, since revealing the plans for stand alone films there has been much speculation that Fett would be the star of one. Captain America director Joe Johnston conceived the visual design of Boba Fett back in the 70s, as an employee at Industrial Light and Magic, and has long been rumored as director of a potential Fett film.
So how does this rumor sit with you? For that matter, how does the idea of a Boba Fett movie sit with you? I know not all of us are as enamored with the character in the first place.
