Yes, Yes, YES!!!

EW is reporting that Disney plans on producing "stand alone" films that center on a popular character in the Star Wars galaxy, along with episodes 7 - 12. They also have confirmed which two characters the first two projects will focus on: Boba Fett and a young Han Solo. While I am jacked that they are doing a solo film for Han, er, Solo - I am giddy as a schoolgirl that we are finally getting a whole feature film based on the most bad-ass bounty hunter in the galaxy; My main man Boba Fett!!

Plans for the Solo film call for it to take place in the time between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy. No plot details have been revealed, but it's a near-certainty that a brand new actor would have to step in to play everyone's favorite scruffy looking Nerf-herder.

The Boba Fett film, meanwhile, would be set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and would follow the bounty hunter on an intergalactic adventure.

Both of the the films (of which Lawrence Kasdan is said to be writing one and Simon Kinberg writing the other) are tentatively planned to see release sometime after 2015 when J.J. Abrams' Episode VII is planned to hit theaters.


  1. I am kinda eh on this announcement. Until I see the first one...I will pass no judgments though.

  2. Hey - it can't get any worse, right?
