Star Wars is heavily considered and unapologetically the most influential and thorough film franchise of all time. Seven films have spawned the series over the course of nearly forty years.
New Information on Star Wars: Rogue One
With the massive success of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and the way it offered something new for moviegoers while adding in a ton of nostalgia for older fans, Disney studios has decided to create a spin-off film called “Star Wars: Rogue One.” Nothing more than basic information has been available for quite some time, but just recently some new details involving the plot, story, setting and characters in the movie have come into the light.

For starters “Rogue One” is going to take place shortly before Episode IV: A New Hope, and focus on the heroes, who are a group of Rebels who have stolen the plans to the Death Star, thus setting in motion the events of the original trilogy. With this in mind the idea that famous characters from the series may appear in the movie and play a significant role in it is very much a possibility, specifically Darth Vader or Boba Fett.
At the moment, much of this is just speculation. There’s also some rumors floating around that Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, who are already in the film, may at one point disguise themselves as high ranking Imperial Commanders and gunners.
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.
