Boba Fett reportedly is going to be the first Star Wars character to get his own film,
Jon Schnepp: "I know for a fact," he says. "I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan."


I guess it's only common sence that one of those movies would be about Fett.

This was a no-brainer.

Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett make the most sense for origin stories at this point.

Maybe this is a chance for them to trample on the awful prequel origin of Boba Fett and then reset his voice in Empire back to what it was before the terrible re-dub.

But seriously, from what people are saying these stand-alone movies aren't going to be "origin" stories but instalments apart from the Star Wars episodes that weave into the main story, sort of like the stand-alone marvel movies and Avengers.

I loved Boba Fett to no end, but the prequels blew apart his mystique and coolness factor. That said, I trust Kasdan to make it good and I see him essentially reverting to the character written for Empire - a badass lone wolf bounty hunter who shoots first and asks questions later. Hopefully there will be a scene where Boba gets a new voice box so I don't have to labour through that pansy kiwi voice.

Boba can still be a "badass lone wolf..." without disavowing his origin story in AOTC and The Clone Wars. What about his origin story in previous canonical media prevents him from being that?

He starts off in a system of massive institutional slavery. Later, breaks off from that and becomes a rogue killer-for-hire, modeled after his father. His life's trajectory is deviant, touching and cautionary in a way that mirrors Luke's in a warped sort of way.

I swear, if some folks had it their way, every fucking character would be the Man with No Name from Sergio Leone's spaghetti western trilogy. That's the sense I sometimes get. It reminds me of something from Family Guy (see below) where they give an example of what The Muppets would be like if performed by college-going, non-creative types. Everything is flat, homogenous and, worst of all, cliché. There's no interest, dimension, dynamism or balance to anything.

And what's wrong with the Kiwi accent? Adds a more international flavor to the proceedings (even though it's not far from the films' predominant English accents) and is something like a token or reminder of where the last two prequels were shot. Or should I just shut up and content myself with the entrenched stereotype that non-rhotic speakers are less masculine?

His mystique is gone. Part of the allure of the "lone wolf" archetype is the unknown. You now know he was grown in a test tube and was babysat by a bunch of bounty hunters in the Clone Wars tv show.

What about Boba's origin was creative? The fact that he was a clone significantly shrinks the SW galaxy and - if anything - his story arc in the PT practically mimicked Anakin's: a son of a non-natural birth goes on to acquire great skill / power and due to negative life-altering events goes on to serve evil. Enlighten me as to why you believe Boba's origins has made him more interesting than he was before AOTC.

Sometimes the best things about a character's backstory are what you don't know, what is left to the imagination. What we got reeked of coincidence, not creativity.

Morrison's dub in ESB sounds lazy and doesn't fit. That voice doesn't inspire fear or evoke confidence: the original one did. I'm all for international flavour - I love that about Star Wars - but that doesn't mean you try and fit a square peg into a circle hole for the sake of it. And who gives a shit where the prequels - or any film - is shot? It could have been shot on Mars for all I care. I'm watching a fantasy sci-fi epic, not a documentary.

I guess our main, likely unshackleable, difference of opinion is in the value of the unknown in Star Wars. I can relate to that somewhat because what I admire about some of the characters in my other favorite films is that same quality. That mystique, as you put it. But Star Wars is different for me. I prefer it as a more closed, interconnected and morally certain universe. I guess that's why I really love this piece of artwork (featured in the Blu-ray packaging, interestingly enough):

Image

The only characters taking the coolest, wisest, more distinguished, middle road aren't briefly glimpsed bounty hunters, but the primary lineage of heroes by story's end, the Skywalkers. And I admire how the PT elaborated upon and made specific the backgrounds of so many of the OT's main and ancillary characters. I like how it more tightly wove things together and made relationships more intersecting and, in some cases, more familial. But, in spite of what I've mentioned, there are still plenty of blanks left and stones unturned among what is a veritable cornucopia of characters presented throughout the saga. Ben Quadinaros, for example. :lol:

Also, I was 6 years short of being alive in the summer of '80, so I don't have any lengthy personal history with the character. Many do and that's cool. But I don't have that baggage of thinking of him in any particular way for so long. I wonder if I'd have the same opinion if my childhood had commenced a decade or so earlier.

Regarding whether or not Boba Fett's origin is creative, you partially answered the question for me and reminded me that his arc does more closely resemble Anakin's! I love those repeating motifs and thematically parallel story touches. They reinforce and emphasize the PT's main storyline. That's part of my affinity for what's been done in the PT. But to be fair, what one finds creative can be a very subjective thing. I find the particulars of Boba's upbringing very poignant, endearing and deeply mythological. A "simple man trying to make [his] way in the universe" with an equally simple desire to have a son in his own exact image, free from the perverted dictates of an elaborate alien cloning and indoctrination process. Sounds good to me. And what's the matter with being babysat by other bounty hunters? Everyone has a starting point with mentors and/or peers.

As for the 2004 dubbing update, it just makes the whole saga more cohesive. It's a cogent little touch. The line reading sounds neither lazy, nor lacking in malevolence or confidence. It's the son of Jango, plain and simple.

All of this talk of Boba Fett just reminds me that Lucasfilm was pimping his decked-out battle armor well before ESB came out. He was manufactured to be a badass. And that's all he was until the PT tried to make him into something more interesting. Maybe the mature, mostly mute Boba Fett of the OT is only good in spurts. There is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

There is very little if any difference between those line readings, other than Temuera Morrison's accent.

This fucking bullshit of claiming that Fett is now "ruined" because sheep don't agree with the Prequels or the Clone Wars series is just about the gayest fucking bullshit I think I've ever heard.
I'm an old school fan. I was 15 in 1980. I didn't give two shits about Boba Fett. He was just the bounty hunter who was lucky enough to snag Han Solo. That's all. If it so happens that he had a back story as a clone, then so fucking what?
It ruins nothing, other than some fans pre-concieved notions.

Without even getting into the whole prequel backstory debate, that right there is why I probably wouldn't be too keen to see a whole movie about Boba Fett.

You have a big blank canvas onto which little splashes of colour are added, points of interest, dotted about the place making up a bigger picture which can be viewed from a distance.
"Hey, people really liked that little bit of red in the bottom left-hand corner of the canvas. We've got surveys and statistics to prove it. Let's make more red. In fact, let's make an entirely red canvas. Let's make it an even bigger canvas than last time with more red on it than you could possibly imagine... People will like that."
No, you fucking morons, we liked that little patch of colour in the context of the bigger picture. It only stood out on the blank canvas, down in the corner, up against the yellow, not far from the blue as a detail in the bigger picture... now it's just red piled onto a red background and there is nothing to see anymore...

Unless they are brave and smart and make a good Boba Fett movie which doesn't have much Boba Fett in it.

I think inquistr.com needs to learn that the definition of the word "confirmed" and the phrase "officially in the works" isn't "a random Hollywood dude on a podcast said that he just KNOWS it's going to happen". ;) This is the same story from Friday, just dressed up as "confirmed" to drive hits.

...but you just know that there's a certain type of asshole who would throw a fit if there was a really good or even great movie made using this strategy just because "fukin boba fet wuz only in teh movie 4 a haf houre".

Don't you know the real Boba Fett materialized out of thin air, instead of being born at some specific time in a specific area? ;)
Not saying we needed to see his origin, but it really is getting ridiculous. Boba can fuck up as a kid as long as he becomes a badass later on.

Also, Temura Morrison's voice isn't what I would call "pansy".

What's the point of giving him a backstory or "coming of age story" when he just dies from Han Solo accidentally stabbing his jetpack with a pole and being swallowed by a giant sand vagina??

Yeah, he was cool in Empire and his original voice was like pure sex to my ears. But he was a very minor character that everyone loved because he looked and sounded badass and was mysterious and formidable in that Michael Keaton Batman sort of way (although villainous, obviously). Plus, he briefly hung out with Vader, who actually kept his word rather than just using his services and killing him or something. I think that's enough, but of course we're getting movies, comics, video games, toys, theme park rides, etc. Actually, the fucker's already in Star Tours.

btfo sheep of that overhyped bitch make me wish that this would be the one film where they would follow the EU. Just to see Fett get out of the Sarlaac, fall into it again, get out of it one more time...and then somehow fall into it yet again.

It would be fucking hilarious.

Latino Review's "4 Most Important SW Stories of the Year (so far)"

supposedly:
-Arndt bounced because he focused on Solo kids, Abrams wanted to focus on Skywalker kid(s)
-Jesse Plemons is "locked" in as Luke's son
-Boba Fett spin-off/("origin"?) by Kasdan will have a "man with no name" kill Boba and take his armor
-the Kenobi in SW7 isn't Obi-Wan's daughter/granddaughter, but some other family member

:roll:

I'm going to say total BS. Disney and the new regime at LFL might do their best to ignore the prequels, TCW, etc., but they're never going to completely overwrite George like that (for as long as he's still alive, at least).

George was so clear as to how that works. The canon that he created was the Star Wars saga. Right now, episode seven falls within that canon. The spin-off movies, or we may come up with some other way to call those films, they exist within that vast universe that he created.

There is no attempt being made to carry characters (from the standalone films) in and out of the saga episodes. Consequently, from the creative standpoint, it’s a roadmap that George made pretty clear.

It seems odd to do a Boba film without him. The best solution for this curveball is to have the story take place after ROTJ. In that scenario, Clone Boba’s still dead and this new anonymous Fett gets to have his day without undoing Lucas' vision. Sure, it would throw the retcon from the films to the EU. But, EU Boba’s been erased a long time ago. What’s one more change?

Does that mean that whatever characters appear in the spin offs won't be characters from the main saga?

I interpret that as meaning the crossover stories and characters won't necessarily overlap or interconnect with the Sequel movies.

Smart move and easily accomplished.

No VII through IX can be told, unhindered, post ROTJ.

The spin-off stories will be, my guess, mind you, pre-ESB, perhaps even pre-ANH.

The Hollywood Reporter out today with a report on a Boba Fett film. James Mangold of "Logan" fame to write and direct.

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-boba-fett-movie-is-happening-james-mangold-direct-1113273

Fett being the subject of a stand-alone coming out relatively soon makes total sense, especially in the light of AE signing on for 3 Lucasfilm projects. Han Solo's presence in a Boba Fett movie is just about a must, given that the presence of the two characters creates natural foils to one another.

However, with Magold's name attached, the Fett film isn't one of the movies being helmed by Rian Johnson, nor is it a film by the GoT guys.

Thoughts?

I'd be good with that. I'm not as Boba Fett obsessed like some fans, but I like this idea.

Perhaps they'll get Temura Morrison to play him. Or Daniel Logan, who is now in his 30's.

Mark my words, Alden will be back as Solo in this movie. He's already signed on for a couple for films iirc, this is the perfect way.

Actually, I can see this movie beginning a few months after Solo. It would be cool if the rest of the movie takes place post RotJ - that way we're unsure about the outcome.

Having just seen Solo, i can speculate that the next Anthology movie will very probably be Boba's

I heard that Alden Ehrenreich signed on for one or two more SW movies, so he would fit perfectly in a BF film.

Cause we know Boba leads to Jabba, Jabba leads to Tatooine, and, to kill 2 birds with one stone, Tatooine leads to Obi-Wan, and Obi Wan leads to Luke. So a Boba Fett Anthology movie could mean the return of Ewan McGregor as "Ben", and a probable digitally deaged Mark Hamill's Luke.

Plus, having seen a
Maul cameo,
that could mean we might see him again in the next Anthology movie, in his
Crimson Dawn Leader role (joined by Ki'ra), before Obi-Wan kills him on Rebels


Just a thought.

Peace.
