Rumor: The first Star Wars spin-off to focus on both Han Solo AND Boba Fett
While we await any sort of concrete news about Gareth Edwards STAR WARS SPIN-OFF, we continue to alternate between rumors that claim the film is about either Han Solo or Boba Fett and other bounty hunters. Well, what if both rumors were right?
First off, news has come from Making Star Wars who claim the STAR WARS SPIN-OFF will shoot in Mexico while also reusing some sets built for THE FORCE AWAKENS. Shooting in Mexico could be a stand-in for any number of existing worlds from STAR WARS or an entirely new setting. But, with cost-cutting measures in place it sounds like the film will use a lot more practical shooting locations than even EPISODE VII did. They also claim the bounty hunters will be critical to the plot.
Latino Review claims their sources as having both Han Solo and Boba Fett as characters in the STAR WARS SPIN-OFF. How exactly that works is unknown, but with Fett meeting his fate in RETURN OF THE JEDI and the Extended Universe no longer canon, this would have to be a prequel. Whether Fett and Solo will share screen time is unknown, but that would definitely be cool.
While I cannot take either of these as more than rumor, a lot of the information we have learned from sources has turned out to be true for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII - THE FORCE AWAKENS, so cross your fingers that we may finally be getting a clear idea of what this film is going to be.
The STAR WARS SPIN-OFF is slated to hit theaters on December 16, 2016.
