Topic: Spin-Off Feature (About Boba Fett, Han Solo, Yoda...?)

Let this be a thread on all things preliminary for the spin-off film, which is not considered Star Wars Episode 7, but is a live-action feature film for theaters nonetheless.

In the 2/9/2013 Los Angeles Times, ESB/ROTJ writer Lawrence Kasdan, who's also an accomplished writer/director for other films, has an article by Noelene Clark (@NoeleneClark):

Kasdan would not confirm reports that the spinoff films would center on iconic characters Han Solo, Boba Fett or Yoda, but said he wasn’t focusing on his previous scripts or on the extended “Star Wars” universe in his approach to writing the new film.

“I’m trying to start fresh,” he said. “There are certain pleasures that we think the saga can bring to people that they’ve been missing, and we’re hoping to bring them that, and at the same time, have them feel that it’s all new.”

Personally, I'd prefer it if the spinoffs weren't about Fett.  I prefer a mysterious Boba that we know nothing about.  It makes him that much more intimidating.  Han Solo though, that'd be interesting.

Re: Spin-Off Feature (About Boba Fett, Han Solo, Yoda...?)

I'm ecstatic about the Boba Fett film. Boba has been ridiculed for the Sarlacc incident in ROTJ long enough. His redemption is at hand. Also, I wanted a Boba Fett vs Cad Bane film, because I feel it would be an epic rite of passage for Boba. However, it seems the film will take place during the OT.

I would love to see a spin-off on Fett. Perhaps one about Han Solo and Fett. All of that animosity would make it awesome.

Great point. That's how things are looking, but it seems Episode 7 will come first.

I feel a spin off is inevitable but I have absolutely no idea how they will go about it. As long as they don't turn it into a sappy love story or whiny orphan thing I could be happy. I just want more bounty hunters, and like...space pirates.

I prefer the stories on obscure characters that were in the background of the films. I'd rather they leave Boba out of it as I felt they ruined the mystery of his character with the prequels.

Excellent point. It would be nice if he's just a supporting character, as ESB and ROTJ created the mystery after all.

I think that if they were to make a solo Boba Fett movie, set it in between A New Hope and Empire, and don't make Boba talk to much, keep his character strong and silent, but still have depth to him. The film should also revolve around his crew, maybe have Bossk and IG-88 as the main supporting characters, and save the rest of the crew for later. A western style would feel right (as mentioned by most people) and to have Tatoonie as the main planet, it would only add to this. The plot shouldn't be over complicated or concerning the whole galaxy, it would be nice to see the movie only take place on a couple of planets, and not have an over blown story. Boba is good at his job, so make him good at killing people. He should be known, feared, and hated by his enemies. The ending should possibly be him getting contacted by the Galactic Empire for a mission concerning Han Solo. If all of the elements are right, a Boba Fett would be a refreshing take on the character and the Star Wars universe. It SHOULD NOT be there for fan service to Boba, but instead shine light on his fascinating character.

There's a 30 year period between ROTJ and TFA. Let's see what Boba was doing post-Sarlacc. That's a lot of history to fill.

Re: Spin-Off Feature (About Boba Fett, Han Solo, Yoda...?)

they're working on a movie about boba fett. and possibly a han solo and boba fett movie. i know they are working on a han solo movie.
