That Star Wars Boba Fett Movie Is Dead And Buried

Deadline reported the news after film journalist Erick Weber reported that the project was canceled last night after interviewing Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy at an Oscar-season event for Black Panther.

The Boba Fett movie has been frozen in carbonate.

For me, my main interest in getting a Boba Fett movie was for it to be a vehicle for the fan-favorite character to be played by a Polynesian actor in keeping with how the character was shown to be in the prequels, preferably as directed by (and/or starring) the lovely Taika Waitit.

The original plan was for Boba Fett to have been this year's stand-alone Star Wars Story, but when writer/director Josh Trank was let prior to the film's official announcement, Disney instead pushed ahead with Solo.

The road to production had been somewhat fraught for Boba Fett, and some fans assumed it was dead after the box office disappointment of Solo: A Star Wars Story earlier this year, with rumors circulating that Lucasfilm and Disney were holding off on any firm decisions regarding Star Wars Story standalone movies until after Episode IX was completed. Disney and Lucasfilm had no comment on Friday.

But here's the thing: the Boba Fett character has always sucked anyway. It revealed on October 4 that Dave Filoni, who has worked on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" and "Star Wars Rebels", will direct the first episode of the series. Dave Filoni (Star Wars Rebels) will direct the first episode of the show, with future episodes directed by Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates) and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). The studio is opening Solo: A Star Wars Story tonight which could find its way to a new Memorial Day record with more than $139M over four days.

Favreau is also the executive producer and scriptwriter on the project. "The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order".
