A day after Disney confirmed that standalone “Star Wars” spin-off movies are in the works, EW has posted up a report which claims films are being planned that will deal with the early days of two fan-favorite characters – Han Solo and bounty hunter Boba Fett.
As previously reported, Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg are working on the scripts for spinoff films. It’s unclear which ones though, or if that includes either of these two films.
The Solo film would be set between Episodes III & IV, in the time before Solo met Luke Skywalker. The Fett film on the other hand would be set in between two of the three original films.
Deadline has since poured cold water on this report, their source saying: “Nobody knows when these movies are even coming out. Right now, people are just kicking around ideas. Which is why you hear it’s Yoda one day and a young Han Solo another. it’s all in early development right now.”
