Second ‘Star Wars’ Spin-off Movie to Feature Boba Fett

So, the Star Wars feature film plan is pretty damned busy. If you haven’t been paying attention though, Disney’s current plan is to have “Spin-off” or “Anthology” films between main cycle “Episodes.” We’ve known for a while that the film that will come out between Episode VII: The Force Awakens and the as-of-yet-unsubtitled Episode VIII is called Rogue One.

Now we know what the second spin-off film is going to be, set to come out after Episode VIII.

According to The Wrap, the second Anthology/Spinoff movie will be an origin story for Boba Fett.

Boba Fett is, of course, the fan favorite character who mainly got elevated to cool status because we knew very little about him. Backstory for the character was shoved into Episode II a while back, and… it kind of made him less cool.

So of course now they just want to tell you more about him.


Episode VIII comes out in May of 2017, so this film will likely come out in 2018.

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
