Japanese genre website Kotaku was able to speak with both actress Daisy Ridley and Lucasfilm head honcho Kathleen Kennedy, about The Force Awawkens. One of their final questions to Kennedy pertained to the return of fan favorite character Boba Fett, who we expect to get his own Star Wars Anthology film. There has even been talk that the Josh Trank film was indeed the Fett movie, and the studio is quickly looking for his replacement. Writer and franchise producer Larry Kasdan apparently has written the Fett movie, but Lucasfilm hasn’t confirmed it’s existence or development officially.
Below is the rough translation thanks to Google translate.
“Boba are in place high priority among our list , so please wait.”
There’s been chatter for a while now about Lucasfilm retconning Boba’s clone origin from the prequels and putting someone completely different in the bounty hunter’s shoes. Allowing for a much more rich story for the character not to mention a possible inclusion in Rogue One.
The suspected Star Wars Anthology: Boba Fett is said to be looking at a May 2018 release date.
