Does Lawrence Kasdan’s Standalone STAR WARS Movie Follow Young Boba Fett??
Jon Schnepp, who directed 34 episodes of the Cartoon Network series “Metalocalypse,” told listeners of the AMC Movie Talk podcast that the stand-alone “Star Wars” movie that Lawrence Kasdan is scripting will focus on bounty hunter Boba Fett.
“One of [the standalone Star Wars prequels] is Boba Fett,” said Schnepp, whose channel also aired Lucasfilm’s CGI “Star Wars: Clone Wars” series. “It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”
We’ve known for some time that Kasdan was at work on a Star Wars prequel, and we’re heard rumors that the prequels might focus on Yoda, Boba and/or Han Solo, but Schnepp’s news – if accurate – represents the most specificity we’ve gotten to date on the projects.
The Boba movie is not to be confused with next year’s “Star Wars: Episode VII,” which Kasdan is scripting with director J.J. Abrams. “VII” is expected to explore what became of Luke, Han, Leia and their offspring decades subsequent to the events depicted in “Return of the Jedi.”
Kasdan, of course, co-scripted the 1980s Star Wars features “The Empire Strikes Back” (which introduced Boba to the big screen following his cartoon debut in a Star Wars holiday special) and “Return of the Jedi” (which depicted Boba’s consumption by a giant sand worm).
“Empire” is my favorite movie ever.
My question to fellow fans:
Do we really love Boba? Or do we just love his attire and his spaceship?
