Second Standalone Star Wars Film to Address Boba Fett & Han Solo Rivalry

Popular entertainment franchises generally feature a lot of conflict. The conflict can take many different forms, but in the end, it is generally what drives the plot of the property forward. Extremely large mythologies can have a number of subplots, which drives the actions of different characters. Therefore, in properties and entertainment universes as large as Star Wars, there is no limit of great characters to draw inspiration from. One particular element of the franchise that has drawn considerable interest is that of Boba Fett and Han Solo.

According to Screen Rant, the second standalone movie in the franchise will finally address the background between Han and Boba, which should provide some interesting revelations as to why the characters seem to dislike each other so much. The movie is still filming in Cubix Latin America. Since the movie is not set to hit theaters until 2018, fans are going to have a long wait to find out why the bounty hunter seems to really have it out for the pilot and his Wookie pal.

The standalone movies are a nice way for Star Wars to revisit popular characters and reveal key elements of the backstories of the characters. The fan base for the franchise has been popular for decades, and key characters offer legions of dedicated fans. Focusing some of the new film on specific characters should provide insight to the backgrounds of these characters, which should help drive fans into something of a ticket buying frenzy.

Boba Fett Film in the Making

Lucasfilm Is Prioritizing Boba Fett Film

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is set to potentially be the biggest movie release of 2015. The movie will officially hit theaters by this December.

While the Star Wars film franchise is making a comeback this year, there also are plans for two other movies to follow up as sequels after “The Force Awakens” is released. In addition to this, Lucasfilm plans to extend the Star Wars universe even further, starting with at least three spinoff films which are in the works as of right now. Only one of those three spinoffs still has yet to be determined.

The other two, on the other hand, are entitled “Rogue One,” which tells the story of some Rebellion fighters, and the other is a film dedicated solely to telling the origin story of Boba Fett, the galaxy’s most famous bounty hunter. Film exec Kevin Seawright states that the film is set to hit theaters in 2017, meaning that the studios will not be wasting any time delving into arguably the most popular character in the series.

For those who are unaware, Boba Fett made his first true appearance in 1980 with the release of “The Empire Strikes Back,” which then allowed moviegoers to catch on to him heavily despite speaking very few lines in the movie. The fact that he got a bit of a backstory in the prequel trilogy has helped out with serious merchandising.
