Rumor: Spinoff SW Films To Star Han Solo & Boba Fett?

Posted By Eric on February 6, 2013

Yesterday, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that two spinoff films set in the Star Wars saga were in development alongside the sequel trilogy. Today, Entertainment Weekly brings us a new rumor: that the films will star Han Solo and Boba Fett. Here's what EW's Anthony Breznican posted:

Entertainment Weekly has learned details on two of the spin-off projects: A young Han Solo saga, focusing on the wisecracking smuggler?s origin story, and a bounty hunter adventure with Boba Fett at the center of a rogue?s gallery of galactic scum.


The Han Solo story would take place in the time period between Revenge of the Sith and the first Star Wars (now known as A New Hope), so although it?s possible Harrison Ford could appear as a framing device, the movie would require a new actor for the lead ? one presumably much younger than even the 35-year-old Ford when he appeared in the 1977 original.

The Boba Fett film would take place either between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, or between Empire and Jedi, where the bounty hunter was last seen plunging unceremoniously into a sarlacc pit. Exactly who would play him isn?t much of a complication ? in the original trilogy, he never took off his helmet. And in the prequels, we learned he was the son of the original stormtrooper clone, played by Temuera Morrison, who?s still the right age for the part if his services were required.

Click through to Entertainment Weekly for the full story, but remember that this is only a rumor at this point.

UPDATE: Time to pour cold water on the idea that main characters have already been chosen for the spinoff films. Deadline (link via Club Jade) posted the following reality check from an unnamed source:

Nobody knows when these movies are even coming out. Right now, people are just kicking around ideas. Which is why you hear it?s Yoda one day and a young Han Solo another. It?s all in early development right now."
