It wasn’t ever 100% anyway.
But an interaction with a guest at a Marvel fan event has “Boba Fett” fans bumming.
Yesterday, MakingStarWars.net’s Jason Ward explained:
One of the attendees of the Black Panther screening, Erick Weber, got to briefly speak with [Lucasfilm President Kathleen] Kennedy about Boba Fett and he posted her response on Twitter last night.
Jason also wrote:
Boba Fett was originally rumored to be part of his own Star Wars Story almost immediately after the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm in 2012 and at one point even had director Josh Trank connected to it. Rumors around the film have never really stopped since then, but with Kennedy so openly discussing it, it would seem the project is truly dead. Or at least put on hold for now, which lines up with Lucasfilm putting a hold on all it’s Star Wars Story projects for now which we heard back in June.
Like my good friend in California, I am not shedding any tears for Boba just yet.
It makes sense that “The Mandalorian” might refer Jango and Boba Fett while pushing the story of the armor ever deeper into Star Wars lore.
And while I am not entirely convinced we’ll never see a Boba Fett return to the big screen, I am not sure how you produce a show called the “The Mandalorian” without including an appearance of the bounty hunter, even in a flashback.
But what do you think? Can Star Wars survive without Fett intervention? Or is the galaxy big enough to move on from Darth Vader’s favorite bounty hunter?
