‘Star Wars’ spin-ff on Boba Fett is not happening.
Boba Fett debuted in 1980’s “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” and re-appeared in 1983’s “Star Wars: Return of the Jedi” as a mercenary for the Galactic Empire.
Actor Jeremy Bulloch played the character in the two movies and Jason Wingreen provided Boba Fett’s voice.
Last year in May, news emerged that Disney and Lucasfilm had been developing a “Star Wars” standalone movie centered on the bounty hunter Boba Fett from “Logan” director James Mangold. The project was never officially announced.
The decision comes after last “Star Wars” spin-off, “Solo”, did not work well at the box-office. The first anthology film was 2016’s “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”.
