‘Star Wars’: Lucasfilm Developing A Jabba The Hutt Standalone Film

Lucasfilm is reportedly considering a 'Star Wars' standalone film centered around the intergalactic gangster, Jabba the Hutt.

Yesterday, it was reported that Lucasfilm was officially developing an Obi-Wan Kenobi Star Wars spin-off film with many other standalone films reportedly being considered. Now, Variety’s report on the latest spin-off news reveals that a Jabba the Hutt standalone film is one of the projects currently being developed.

The report does not indicate how seriously the concept is being considered, meaning the project may eventually be scrapped altogether. If the project does move forward it could result in a unique entry in the Star Wars spin-off library, especially considering the intergalactic gangster’s dialogue has always been conveyed to audiences through subtitles or translations provided by secondary characters.

The next Star Wars standalone film will be the untitled Han Solo movie, due to be released next summer.

Details on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story’s plot are currently unknown, though the film will chronicle the adventures of the smuggler during his youth and will include his first meeting with Chewbacca and how came to possess the Millennium Falcon.

Written by Lawrence Kasdan and son Jon Kasdan, The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story stars Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo, Michael K. Williams and Ian Kenny.

The Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story is currently scheduled to be released in theaters on May 25, 2018.
