Default More Star Wars Rumours: Young Han Solo + Boba Fett Spinoff Movies

Another day, another Star Wars movie rumor. But this one's a doozy.

Entertainment Weekly reports that there are two potential spinoff movies in early stages of development at Lucasfilm: "A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler’s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue’s gallery of galactic scum."

More from EW:

"The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it’s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead — one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original. The Boba Fett film would take place either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between Empire and Jedi, where the bounty hunter was last seen plunging unceremoniously into a sarlacc pit. Exactly who would play him isn’t much of a complication – in the original trilogy, he never took off his helmet. And in the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original stormtrooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who’s still the right age for the part if his services were required."

And as EW points out, these prequel films would also allow for appearances by both Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt. EW's sources also said that Timothy Zahn's novel Scoundrels, which focuses on Han's between A New Hope and Empire Strikes Back, would not be the basis for the proposed Solo film.

While it would be great to see a Young Han Solo movie I'm only keen if they base it off the AC Crispin novels (The Paradise Snare, The Hutt Gambit and Rebel Dawn), those books paint a great picture of why Solo is such a badass and you can understand why he gets there. Plus I would love to see the Battle of Nar Shaddaa.

people are just throwing out names, nobody really knows what disney are planning other than that they have catagorically said they are doing more than the trilogy and there will be spin offs ala marvel.

To be honest there is a vast number of characters and stories to be told im personally hoping for some good old republic stuff, alot of development has already been done in that direction with the game and expanded universe and it would give fans what they want, loads of light sabres and blasters, bad ass ship to ship combat and good vs evil.

either way i will drag my ass into a cinema for every single film they release.
