Today, a rumor crossed my radar that immediately caught my attention. The headline on the story, which comes from Nuke The Fridge, is "STAR WARS: HAN SOLO and BOBA FETT 'Origin Movies' Confirmed." The original report (link unavailable -- see below) led with this interesting claim:
As reported earlier by Nuke The Fridge.com, it was said that “origin stories” (meaning character spin-off movies) where being talked about around Disney & Lucasfilm, now Disney CEO Bob Iger is confirming that Han Solo & Boba Fett spin-offs are already in the works.Obviously, Bob Iger has not confirmed that the two planned spinoff films are about Boba Fett and Han Solo. We would have reported it here as soon as he said it. Nuke The Fridge's story cited Moviegoss.com, Movieweb.com, and, interestingly, us here at TheForce.Net, but none of these references to other sites were accompanied by links to their reports. So why had NTF writer Chris Salce claimed that Iger had confirmed these two spinoff movies?
