This year we're all anticipating The Force Awakens, but next year will see the release of the first stand alone Star Wars film. We know they will be "character origin films", but that's about it. Rumors and speculation have pointed to everyone from Palpatine to Yoda as possible stars, but by far the two names that have been talked about the most are Han Solo and Boba Fett. The smuggler and the bounty hunter are arguably two of the most popular Star Wars characters ever, and since the rumors began circulating fans have assumed that both characters would each be getting their own individual stand alone movies. Well, the folks at Latino Review have decided to shake things up with their latest report which claims that Boba and Han will be appearing together in the same film:
"When we thought that we were looking at a Han Solo or a Boba fett spin-off film first, we got a little bird singing in our ear telling us that we had it all wrong: both these characters are in the same movie."
This is very interesting and sounds plausible. We've discussed before how miscommunication among inside sources could lead to skewed reports for us. We've been hearing about Han Solo and Boba Fett films for literally years now, and I'm inclined to believe there's at least some truth to these reports. It's understandable that someone would jump to the conclusion that only one character would be the focus for each film, in a similar way Marvel has single character focused films such as Iron Man and Captain America. But given Star Wars' history of ensemble casts, it seems more likely that the Star Wars stand alones will feature an array of characters at the forefront.
As always, this is merely rumor and speculation and should be taken with a grain of salt. All will be revealed when the first stand alone film hits theaters December 16th, 2016!
