According to the article, Johnston has hopes of convincing his former mentor, George Lucas, into letting him direct a feature film solely about the character of Boba Fett.
“…I’m trying to get George to make a feature based on Boba Fett. I would like to [direct it], it would be a lot of fun.”
As many are aware, Johnston is often credited as the designer of Boba Fett. His work, along with Ralph McQuarrie’s concept art, is the genesis of why a site like the Boba Fett Fan Club exist. Some might also be aware that Johnston’s previous work includes fan favorite The Rocketeer, which also featured an adventurous, jetpack-wearing protagonist.
If his most recent directorial endeavor is a success, perhaps Johnston is the man to bring Star Wars back to the big screen.
