Disney, Lucasfilm struggling with Boba Fett spinoff film


When it was announced that J.J. Abrams would be heading up the seventh installment in the Star Wars saga, there was the announcement of spinoff films that would follow characters we both want to know more about or have never seen before.

One of those characters is the infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett, who is without a doubt one of the coolest characters in the movies. But while he seems to be getting his own film, Lucasfilm and Disney are apparently struggling with the concept of the film and that concept is Boba Fett has to be the hero and not the villain.

MakingStarWars.net (via SlashFilm) noted that there is in internal discussion at Disney with Lucasfilm about if it’s possible to make Boba Fett a hero character.

At best, Boba Fett can be the anti-hero and seeing him in that role is something fans have come to expect out of him. While he looks out for himself and himself only, there seems to be a code of honor instilled in him that could lead to him becoming an anti-hero.

Either way, Disney and Lucasfilm clearly aren’t sure how to proceed with the Boba Fett film which is good news for fans who want him to remain mysterious but bad news for fans hoping that a feature length film devoted to one of the coolest Star Wars characters around.
