    Ever since Disney bought out Star Wars, one of the biggest items of news has been the upcoming films. Episodes seven through nine were confirmed early on, as well as a handful of spinoffs, but until now we didn’t know who the spinoff movies were going to focus on. One of the characters we predicted right here on The Inquisitr was Boba Fett, who despite having almost no screen time, remains one of the most popular characters in the franchise.


    The Boba Fett movie probably won’t be an origin story as much as a “coming of age†tale of how he became a ruthless and persistent bounty hunter. Technically,Attack of the Clones was Boba Fett’s origin, showing us a young boy who witnesses his father being killed by a Jedi.

    :facepalm:

    The whole reason Boba Fett was so cool was because he had badass armor and was completely mysterious. And then fatneck Lucas went and made him the son of some boring mulatto Samoan -y guy and RUINED the whole fucking character.

    And he died like a bitch anyway. Eaten by a sarlaac. Weak.

    Now a movie about Boba's ho cousin, Tina Fett, could be good...

    If the re-releases and prequels have taught us anything about Boba Fett, it's that giving him more screen time only makes him less cool.

    Everyone needs to keep in mind Lucas has nothing to do with this movie... so it has a chance of being a gritty movie

    remember that Disney hired some great people to run shit and they actually listens to the fans

    Like Patton Oswalt said, we need to see the gloved hand of Bobba Fett crawling out of the sarlacc pit, that would be a great way to start the movie.

    would be great.. but that story line ended up with him fighting solo and chewy which i think they should avoid right off the bat

    Still, it doesn't matter. Boba was only cool because he was a boogey man. There was little known about him other than the fact that he scared the fuck out of Han. It's kind of like Jason Vorhees. The more we know about his origin and the more we see him doing anything besides killing, the less interesting he becomes.

    Put a mask on Greedo and he'd be just as cool. If this project comes to fruition (which it won't) it's banking on the fact that Fett is an inherently interesting character...and he's not. Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston designed a really cool helmet is all. A hoplite with a rocketpack is always going to be badass at first glance.

    JJ Abrams directing that new Star Wars is a bad sign. Abrams is a piece of turd. Look what he did to Star Trek. He turned it into a generic action movie.

    Start with that scene and then do a time jump, get him away from the core group of main characters. Maybe at the end have Harrison Ford do a small cameo. (But Harrison seems to be more crotchety than usual these days so who knows)

    I'm not a Star Trek fan and I've never been, but Abrams' movies were fun and made the series seem more accessible. They were far from perfect and I could understand why a true fan might have issues, but Abrams' accomplished what the studios wanted.

    Now keep in mind that the last three Star Wars movies were total shit. Just putrid, banal, excrement. Lucas directed ONE good movie that was based on a coke-fuel mythology of lifted Kurosawa concepts set in space. Star Wars is hardly sacred. There were three dumb movies that were really fun if you choose not to think too much.

    Harrison Ford is ALL about the payday at this point. He's been on autopilot for a decade. Write him a check and he will be your huckleberry.

    Anything will be better than the last three films. I just don't like Abrams at all. He gets too much props and what has he really done that was so good?

    Yeah, JJ Abrams. He did wonders with the LOST finale (eyes roll out of head)

    At least we'll get a lot of lens flares

    That said, Ill be cautiously optimistic that its a decent flick, but I aint holding out hope.
