Metalocalypse director John Schnepp confirmed the rumor of a Boba Fett movie in a press interview. Speaking about the spinoff movies, he said, “One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”

If that name sounds familiar, it could be because he was responsible for writing some of George Lucas’ best films. Lawrence Kasdan wrote The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and Raiders of the Lost Ark, so you know he has some serious potential to make his Star Wars spinoff the best of the bunch.



Umm yeah!

Boba Fett: Wears a cool outfit, does nothing, dies like a bitch, gets his own movie.

Boba Fett became 97% less cool when he was revealed to be a clone kid playing spaceship with daddy. Not all characters need origin stories.

Yeah but word is that Disney has assembled a group to scour everything in the EU and to deem what is worthy canon and what is not. So maybe there's hope. And besides Kasdan wrote TESB which is the best out of all six. /shrug

Not to worry. It will live. I can ensure that. I think my copy is from the 1st gen VHS dub. Bea Arthur, Harvey Korman, Diahann Carroll, Jefferson Startship and all.

From the Wiki article on the Special: "I'm not convinced the special wasn’t ultimately written and directed by a sentient bag of cocaine."
Life is hard; but it's harder if you're stupid. Big Al.
