Questions After Solo: A Star Wars Story

TODO alt text

The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, dropping mere hours before the wide theatrical release of Disney and Lucasfilm's second Star Wars spinoff, Solo: A Star Wars Story.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Lucasfilm have chose to pursue a stand-alone film based on popular bounty hunter Boba Fett - you know, the guy who spoke 27 words total in the original trilogy before being unceremoniously dumped into the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi - and Logan director James Mangold will take the helm.

As the outlet notes, a rumored Boba Fett movie from "X-Men" helmer Simon Kinberg was reportedly in the works, and it's unclear if this newly-revealed project from Mangold is different.

Kim Byeong-uk fled the North 16 years ago and now runs the North Korea Development Institute, an economic think tank in Seoul . Moon is to announce details of the meeting at a press conference on Sunday, according to the South Korean president's office.

The latest chapter of the Star Wars anthology, Solo: A Star Wars Story, is now showing in cinemas, but the planned Boba Fett tale will be the first in the franchise to stray away from the main Star Wars storyline and focus exclusively on one figure.

The last we saw of Thrawn in Star Wars Rebels, both he and protagonist Ezra Bridger were transported through hyperspace by the purrgil (space whales), their whereabouts unknown.

James Mangold, the filmmaker behind Logan and Walk the Line, is set to write and direct the film, Variety says it's learned "from several sources". Despite his ultimately inconsequential role, the character's iconic armor has endured as a popular inspiration for Star Wars merch, and he went on to feature in a number of the extended universe materials, becoming a popular character in books, comics and animated series.

This is still not the end of things, trade deals like this are often of the "nothing is agreed until everything is agreed" type. But no formal deals have been struck, and China has denied that any figure was set during negotiations in Washington.

This Boba Fett movie's actually been in the pipeline for some time.

Boba Fett isn't the only character who could be jumping into the big screen with his own standalone adventure. Most importantly, the bounty hunter is crucial to young Boba Fett's development in the wake of his father's death. We know it's happening and we know James Mangold's gonna be the one to give it to us, and that's about it.
