RUMOR: Next Year’s ‘Star Wars Spin-Off’ Will Feature ‘Han Solo’ And ‘Boba Fett’
Last month I reported that there was a rumor going around that the first ‘Star Wars Spin-Off’ would center around a heist story dealing with several Bounty Hunters from the Star Wars Universe. Now LatinoReview is reporting that we may see a Spaghetti Western like movie taking place in the Star Wars Universe that will star Han Solo and Boba Fett. It sounds like a great idea to introduce a young Han Solo, who originally had a shady past, either competing or working with Boba Fett and a group of Bounty Hunters over a certain mission concerning the Empire’s Death Star Plans.
MakingStarWars.com also got their hands on some information regarding the upcoming ‘Star Wars Spin-Off’:
Expect more on-location shooting than for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Crew members are hearing their start dates now.
Many believe they are doing a lot of work on-location in Mexico for the first spin-off.
There have been some Star Wars: The Force Awakens re-shoots going down recently at Pinewood using some of those people.
Bounty hunters are important to the film.
Painters are expected to redress some set pieces from The Force Awakens and there are lots of cost cutting measures like that in place for the first spin-off film. Most of the reshoot materials are to be saved when possible for this reason.
The first ‘Star Wars Spin-Off,’ directed by Gareth Edwards, is scheduled to open on December 16th, 2016
