‘Star Wars’ VFX Artist Casts Doubt On Boba Fett Movie

One of the Star Wars visual effects artists working on the upcoming Cassian Andor solo series revealed that the Boba Fett movie won’t be happening any time soon.

There’s been talk of a Boba Fett movie for many years, with directors Josh Trank and James Mangold even attached to the project at different times. But after Lucasfilm and Disney were disappointed with Solo’s performance the idea of a Boba Fett movie was seemingly thrown out. But after the success of The Mandalorian and the ever-increasing popularity of bounty hunters in the Star Wars universe, fans have begun asking whether the character could still reappear at some point.

When Neal Scanlan to Movie Web about working on the Cassian Andor series, the creature designer was asked whether he knew anything about the Boba Fett movie or the plans for the character going forward. Unfortunately while Scanlan revealed he was aware of conversations about the bounty hunter, many people working on Star Wars know about plenty of potential projects – but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything will happen with them. The artist ended his point by saying he had “nothing positive” to offer about a Boba Fett movie or series right now.

“In a sense no, but in a sense yes. In a sense, dare I say, within the Star Wars family, or the Star Wars world, which is quite enormous, between Lucas[film] and Disney, etc. We are all aware of conversations that are being had and potential things. So much of this is in development, and parallel developments are taking place at all times. It’s oftentimes very difficult to predict which particular project will gain momentum and move forward. So, not yet. Not yet. There’s nothing positive I can give to you yet.”

Do you still want to see a Boba Fett movie? Or do you think the bounty hunter should make his way to Disney Plus in his own series or in an appearance on The Mandalorian? Sound off in the comments below!

Here is the official synopsis for The Mandalorian:

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order.

The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Carl Weathers, Omid Abtahi, Werner Herzog, and Nick Nolte.
