Let’s get real for a second, Star Wars fans. We need a Boba Fett standalone movie, and we need it now. Disney and Lucasfilm have one in the works, but not many details have been released, other than the news of director Josh Trank’s exit from the project. But now that Rogue One has proven the company’s foray into non-saga films can work magnificently, excitement for a possible Boba Fett movie is about to ramp up even more. And if there’s a character in the Star Wars universe that deserves more time in the sun, it’s him.
If we were calling the shots, here’s what we would do with a Boba Fett movie:
As a rookie member of an elite bounty-hunting team, Boba Fett is instructed to hang back during a covert mission involving the extraction of a brutal crime lord named Japla Frey from a rundown fifteen-story housing complex. But when a spotter blows their cover, Japla offers lifelong sanctuary to every killer, gangster, and thief in the building in exchange for their heads. Now Boba must stand in for the team’s fallen leader and use every iota of his fighting strength – winding through every floor and every room to complete the mission and escape with his life1.
Take a look at the following pieces of Boba Fett art, which actually make us more depressed that we haven’t gotten a standalone movie yet2.
