Boba Fett joins the insane pile of upcoming Star Wars film projects

Lando Calrissian Han Solo Boba Fett joins the insane pile of upcoming Star Wars film projects

Hopefully, Disney has the balls that Fox did when they let Mangold do basically whatever he wanted with Logan.

A stand-alone Boba Fett movie would be the first time we have a non-white character leading a Star Wars movie rather than being a supporting character who can get sidelined in sequels because of basic shipping agenda-I'm not bitter or anything.

Boba Fett would reportedly follow Solo: A Star Wars Story as the next in Lucasfilm's series of films set outside the scope of its ongoing "Saga" movies. While the prospect of a Boba Fett movie will surely be exciting for some fans, it will probably be a while until we get to see the film. At the moment, Mangold's Boba Fett film looks like it could have more momentum.

The criticism focusses mainly on a female character not being chosen for the spin-off treatment, and on another white male being booked to direct (as with every other Star Wars film to date).

ZTE may live, as Trump administration reportedly reaches deal to revive it
Marco Rubio also came out against it, calling it a "great deal. for #ZTE & China". Trump has said the new fine against ZTE could be about $1.3 billion.

LucasFilm and Disney have not yet confirmed the report, but Mangold will allegedly be co-writing the script with Simon Kinberg.

The goal of this roundup is to put all the Star Wars news from the week of May 25, 2018 in one location.

Solo: A Star Wars Story took in $14.1 million in Thursday evening previews, a record for a Memorial Day weekend release, but behind Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which took in $29 million. In addition, filmmaker Rian Johnson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) is developing an entirely new trilogy of Star Wars films, and Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are also working on new films for the franchise. Temuera Morrison who played Jango Fett, Boba's father/clone in the prequels, has previously said he would be interested in reprising the part. In the original trilogy (to which Solo is a prequel of sorts) the bounty hunter Boba Fett was Solo's nemesis, with Fett constantly looking to hunt down the owner of the Millennium Falcon.

First introduced in "The Empire Strikes Back", Fett quickly became a fan favorite despite doing very little and promptly dying a slow, agonizing death in "Return of the Jedi".
