New Boba Fett Spin-Off Movie & Star Wars Episode VII Rumors Surface Online

ScifiedStar Wars Episode 7 News ➙ New Boba Fett Spin-Off Movie & Star Wars Episode VII Rumors Surface Online

Following last week's slew of Star Wars Episode VII rumors comes yet a new batch, some of which contradicting the ones presented by THR's article 6 days ago. Latino Review is claiming to have recieved "insider information" regarding some of the details behind Star Wars Episode VII's development as well as some new potential info on the Boba Fett spin-off movie which is planned to be released in addition to a Han Solo and Yoda movie. Read on for the details...

Latino Review's source had a few differing points of information when compared to THR's list of Star Wars rumors. To start things off, here's what Latino Review's source had to say about Michael Ardnt's departure from the Episode VII project as well as the reason why:

"We’ve heard that Ardnt was much more into the story of the Solo kids, while JJ felt – and still feels – that this the story of the Skywalker line. Since Ardnt walked almost all of his ideas have been tossed and Abrams/Kasdan are pursuing the Skywalker-centric version they wanted. Mark Hamill’s part has been beefed up so much he might end up shooting 6 months on the movie, our source estimated."

Following this statement, Latino Review's source also went on to deny the rumors involving Obi-Wan Kenobi's potential child or grandchild being present in the next film:

"In response to a rumor that Obi-Wan would have some sort of offspring, we’re told that it’s absolutely not true. That being said, the Kenobi family will come into play. Could be niece nephew, no real details on that one. It could be a Force Ghost or a something else, we just know it’s not his daughter or grandkid."

Finally, the source added an interesting bit of information regarding the Boba Fett spin-off film which Disney plans to pursue following Episode VII's release, in 2018. The source claims that the "Boba Fett" we'll see in the spin-off film will explain the origins to the Boba Fett from the original Star Wars trilogy - one that will render the origins explained in the prequel trilogy useless. See why:

"To counter-act the prequels, the Boba Fett spin-off movie planned for 2018 has an interesting twist pitched by Episode VII writer Lawrence Kasdan: the spin-off will start with a complete stranger killing Boba Fett and taking his armor, starting a Man-With-No-Name bounty hunter tale. So: someone kills the Boba Fett from the prequels and takes his armor and name. One this is for certain is that Kasdan didn’t like the prequel and wants no Bobba Fett Clone in the spin-off film."

A Boba Fett who isn't really Boba Fett? Seems odd don't you think? But at the same time makes sense, since then they could use any actor to play the role. It could also explain why Boba Fett doesn't have an accent like the original Fett did in Attack of the ClonesLatino Review is also claiming that Joe Johnston is being eyed as a potential director for the Boba Fett movie.

Now, keep in mind, these are merely rumors contradicting more rumors. These "inside sources" could me nothing more than a gimmick for these sites to bank on the traffic articles like these can generate. With two sources claiming to have "insider info", which contradicts one another, it certainly makes us raise an eyebrow.

Anyways, be sure to stay up to date on all the latest happeneings with Star Wars and the Boba Fett movie, right here, on!
