With Solo about to go big, Lucasfilm has announced that the long rumoured Boba Fett standalone is now officially up and running. And James Mangold is writing and directing. Mangold has of course recently been living in the world of Wolverine, most notably with last year’s superior end of the road Logan.
No word yet on when to expect this – they’re also juggling an Ob-Wan movie with Stephen Daldry directing, and a certain Episode IX – but with the announcement of what may well be called Boba Fett A Star Wars Story, it’s clear that the Star Wars universe is set to expand/dilute (delete as appropriate) for quite a few years yet.
