Second Star Wars Anthology movie WILL be a Boba Fett movie?

Well, it’s not new news that Boba Fett could well be the focus of one of the new Star Wars Anthology movies that will begin with Rogue One (here) but now it’s back and gathering steam…

With the rumours all along being that the second Anthology movie will focus on a group of bounty hunters, led by Fett, who are trying to steal the plans to the Death Star from a group of rebels who stole them; and then Rogue One being confirmed that it will focus on a group of rebels stealing said plans, we reckoned right away that there’s something to all this… and that the Anthology movies may tell an over-arcing story too.

Now that we know director Josh Trank (here) is no longer helming the second Anthology movie (Joss Whedon is free now… just sayin’), it seems that news has leaked and confirmed the movie WILL focus on Boba Fett and will be an ‘origin story’ now.

Given that we know who Boba is, and indeed the trauma of losing his father when he was a child (In Episode II: Attack of the Clones), we would have to assume that either the rumours aren’t exactly right or it will chronicle his training to become a Bounty Hunter. We always felt that Cad Bane and Aurra Sing would play a big part in this as set up in The Clone Wars series… and we’d love to see that chapter fill in what Boba was up to between Clone Wars and The Empire Strikes Back.

The second Anthology film is expected to arrive in 2018.

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….
