Bounty hunter Boba Fett might not have gotten a lot of lines or screentime in the Star Wars movies, but yet he has become of the more beloved characters from the series. So much so that it seems that he will be getting his own standalone movie, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.
The publication claims that the Boba Fett movie will be one of several movies that Disney is working on that are based on characters in the Star Wars universe. This makes sense as we’ve already gotten a Han Solo movie, and last we heard the standalone Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works as well, so for Boba Fett to get his own movie doesn’t exactly come as a surprise.
No word on the casting or plot of the movie yet, but the report claims that James Mangold will be writing/directing it. For those unfamiliar with Mangold’s work, he had previously directed Logan and The Wolverine, so hopefully this gives you an idea as to what we might be able to expect from this movie.
There is also no word on when the movie will be released, but given that Disney has plans on releasing a new Star Wars movie every year, we guess fans will just need to remain patient.
