The lovely people at EW have published a timeline of Star Wars movies over the next four years and… Boba Fett is on there, with a release date set for 2020.

We knew there was a Boba Fett movie coming and now we may well know when.

So, basically, between now and 2020 – that’s just four years, fact-fans – we will have another five, yes FIVE, Star Wars movies.

It’s worth noting the Han Solo movie has a log line saying: How young Han Solo became the smuggler, thief, and scoundrel whom Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first encountered in the cantina at Mos Eisley.

These are the movies we’re looking for. Hopefully.

After The Force Awakens we can only hope the Force will remain as strong as before, but no matter what happens, we have much to look forward to in the next few years.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
