Following last week’s news that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie was now officially in development, now comes word on other potential Star Wars spinoff pictures.
As per Variety, Disney is reportedly in early development on solo films for both Boba Fett and Jabba the Hutt. Ever since it was revealed that the House of Mouse was looking to do Star Wars Story movies – such as last year’s Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and the currently-shooting to-be-titled young Han Solo film – alongside their main new trilogy of pictures, there’s been plenty of speculation that Fett, not to mention Yoda, could get the solo movie treatment. Jabba the Hutt, though? That’s a pretty new one on us - and one we'd likely say to maybe take with a fairly heft grain of salt for now.
Details are extremely scarce on all of this right now, but it certainly looks like Disney are eager to continually turn out new movies in order to keep Star Wars fans shilling out their pennies.
Where that Kenobi film is concerned, the latest we’ve heard is that Billy Elliot’s Stephen Daldry is in talks to direct, with the story to centre on how Obi-Wan became plain old Ben Kenobi between the events of Revenge of the Sith and 1977’s Star Wars (or A New Hope to you more modern sorts).
As ever, expect more on all of this as and when we get it. Up next for all things a galaxy far, far away is Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits the big screen this December.
