Could there be a Han Solo Vs Boba Fett movie in the works?

You know the way we’ve all been looking forward to a Han Solo movie and a Boba Fett movie based on rumours we’ve all been hearing for the last couple of years? Well, we may have had it wrong…

Please remember this is purely rumour and possibly spoilerific. But something tells us there is SOMETHING to this.

Latino review are reporting that the two enemies will actually face-off in the first Star Wars spin-off movie: “We got a little bird singing in our ear telling us that we had it all wrong: both these characters are in the same movie.

“I’ve been unable to elaborate on what that means, but as this new Star Wars film comes together, I can’t help but wonder if this isn’t a “stand alone” as much as it’s really a “spin-off.” Picture this: Young Han Solo in his life of crime falls in with Bounty Hunters and Hutts for a heist of super weapon plans for a blossoming Rebel Alliance.

“This movie isn’t about the Death Star, as Han doesn’t recognize it in A New Hope, it’s about the relationship between Han, Boba Fett and the criminals (I assume Hutts because the Hutts are so entangled in the Fett V. Solo story). And if this movie uses Han and Boba Fett as a way of kicking off a whole new series of Star Wars films, I wouldn’t be surprised if Boba Fett’s solo film picks up where this one leaves off. Yes, it’s super-inter-connected, but that’s what Star Wars is now.”

With all the recurring rumours that the spin-off, due Christmas 2016, is going to feature the Bounty Hunters from the Star Wars Original Trilogy, it makes sense that Boba and possibly Han will feature.

So, file this under rumours, but don’t forget you heard it here…

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….
