We're Getting a BOBA FETT Movie From The Director of LOGAN

39;Solo' struggles with 'Star Wars' fatigue $83.3M at the box office The

In the meantime we will have to settle for the latest Star Wars film, Solo: Star Wars story which is now in theaters.

Reportedly, Disney and Lucasfilm are also at work on a feature centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi, though no official announcement has yet been made on that front.

James Mangold is writing and will direct a Star Wars stand-alone movie centered on Boba Fett, the feared bounty hunter and fan-favorite character, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

Previously it was reported that Chronicle director Josh Trank and X-Men: Days of Future Past writer/producer Simon Kinberg were working on a Fett movie, but that project fell apart due to a number of factors.

He then famously appeared in "The Empire Strikes Back" before he was killed in "Return of the Jedi".

Texas considers how to prevent school shootings
He acknowledged that such airport-style screening would carry a high cost for the thousands of school districts in the state. The governor's office said he would hold roundtable discussions from Tuesday to focus on the best options.

Boba Fett's story was continued in prequel movie Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones, where it was revealed he inherited his memorable costume and spaceship from Jango Fett, from whom he was cloned. Kinberg and Mangold are close, having worked on Logan, the X-Men spinoff that earned high praise past year. At the moment, Mangold's Boba Fett film looks like it could have more momentum. Fett succeeded in his mission and took Han Solo back to Jabba's Palace, where he would meet an untimely end in the Sarlac Pitt.

The Boba Fett movie has had a bit of a rocky development process.

In The Walt Disney Company's new canon, meanwhile, Aurra Sing plays a major role in The Clone Wars, a computer animated TV series that was cancelled in 2012.

Mangold's involvement is also promising, given that the Oscar-nominated director's last outing was the critically-acclaimed Logan. We know it's happening and we know James Mangold's gonna be the one to give it to us, and that's about it.
