Boba Fett to Get Standalone Movie?

Posted by on May 9, 2015 in star wars news | 0 comments

Since we first heard about the Star Wars spin-off movies, there’s been a great deal of debate over what they’ll be focused on. We didn’t know if we’d be getting films on Han Solo, Boba Fett, the Death Star (looks like that rumor was right), or some combination of these and others. Now that the Rogue One teaser is out, speculation has already started about the next standalone movie, and a few people have been saying that it’s likely to focus on Boba Fett. This seems like an obvious choice for Disney, as Fett has one of the strongest fan followings in the Star Wars universe—people love him, and a Fett movie would almost certainly be a success. An interesting rumor that’s going around (it surfaced back in 2014 on Latino Review) is that Lawrence Kasdan didn’t like the idea of Boba being a clone, and has proposed a story that begins with a totally unknown character killing the original bounty hunter, taking his armor, and assuming the mantle of...

Want to See Another Star Wars Trailer?

Posted by on Apr 2, 2015 in star wars news, Star Wars: Episode VII | 0 comments

Then go see the new Avengers movie! We’ve seen one trailer for The Force Awakens, and we’ll be seeing a new one soon—in front of Avengers: Age of Ultron. It’s been rumored for a while, and with multiple sources reporting this release for the next trailer, it seems very likely. Age of Ultron comes out on May 1st in North America, but has release dates around the world starting on April 22nd, so you can bet that we’ll see some bootleg cell phone recordings of the trailer hitting YouTube before that. The trailer will also be shown at the Star Wars Celebration convention, which runs from April 16th to 19th. After JJ Abrams’ crackdown on leaks coming off of the set, it seems likely that Lucasfilm could try to stay one step ahead of bootleggers and just put the trailer out on the internet after the convention, before anyone has a chance to put up a low-quality copy. While Disney will want the trailer to draw more people to their Avengers movie, seeing the...

Rumor: A Star Wars Trilogy Of Obi-Wan Kenobi Movies In Development

Posted by on Oct 11, 2014 in star wars, star wars news | 0 comments

What would you think of a trilogy of Obi-Wan Kenobi films? I think I’d be interested in seeing it, in hopes they don’t mess it up and that it’s actually interesting. We talked before about the new Star Wars films being in development and how there were talks of many more Star Wars films and shows in the works. Could this rumor be of one of those? According to movie website Cinelinx, a rumor is going around about the making of three Obi-Wan movies set betweenRevenge of the Sith and A New Hope. If Disney and Lucasfilm are making such a series, it would definitely be of interest to Star Wars fans. When elaborating of what they films would be about, it was said that they would be interconnected but also able to stand alone as independent films (think like James Bond). The unnamed source of the rumor says that Lucasfilm already has the main plot details of these films laid out. One would feature Obi-Wan on Tatooine, with the other two sending him traveling about the...
