I'm actually intrigued by the prospect of a Boba Fett movie. I can understand the arguments against it (either that he's 1) a lame character who did nothing of consequence but fans latched onto because he looked cool, or 2) a badass, mysterious character who any further information about would ruin), but to me there are so many blanks there to be filled in that the right filmmaker could accomplish something special. Han Solo is a more fully-realized character, and for that reason I felt no need to see a prequel about his early days. He's a cad with a heart of gold in A New Hope and that's a perfectly adequate jumping-off point. I don't want to learn how he kind of became a cad but also kind of became a hero when it has nothing to do with his arc in the original trilogy.

I remember some rumor of a Seven Samurai type story featuring post-Purge Jedi led by Mace Windu (to be directed by Zack Snyder). I think I'd still muster some hype for that, although I'd want someone to ape John Ford's eye, not Snyder's.

me too, i've been saying it all along, making a film about a character who is so strongly identified with a particular actor is just a no-win proposition.

get Lord and Miller back (beg if need be) and let them make a Mr. Bean-style take on Boba Fett, where everything he does backfires and reveals him to be the same clumsy dolt we saw in his final scene in ROTJ.

I just watched "Last Jedi" again as this is one of the last days of the school year and teachers are just killing time......


....and I have to say that this movie gets worse with each viewing. the flaws in logic and reason are everywhere and the characterization of Luke is less and less acceptable the more I watch it. I really like the way it looks, which is much better than the overly digital prequels, and the very last scene with the urchin using the force to pick up the broom saves it from being on the same level of suck as the prequels because it at least offers hope the next movie will be at least somewhat original and make up for the weak sauce that made up this one.

you should play the new, bumbling version of Boba Fett.
you'd do a great job with all the Boba Fart jokes that would surely make up half the film.
and best of all, Fett never takes off his helmet, so no one would ever see your face.

sure, what would be really good is to make a SW movie that mocks the SW movies and all the tropes therein. who wants to go to a movie where beloved characters are taken seriously anyway? :roll:

I believe that SW9 is gonna at least open quite substantially lower than SW8. And as opening weekends indicate the final gross, I can say that Ep9 will make a concerningly less amount of money than The Last Jedi. Here's why...

Little care for Poe, Rey, Finn, and fuck Rose.

No Luke, No Leia, so the selling point of the original characters won't help this film. OK, you'd be lucky to get 3 Luke ghost scenes but that won't be a lot will it?

What's the story again? Something about The Resistance vs First Order and Kylo rising to more power. What is Rey's role in this? She gonna stop him, turn him... ugh it's so vague that I can't really put my finger on it.

Little cliffhanger making us gagging to find out what happens next. Yeah you got First Order smashing the Resistance and now the good guys have gotta get stronger numbers again, and there's a kid picking up a broom, but there's nothing immediate or more direct going on to keep you in suspense. No dramatic big scene that leaves you on edge at least.

So many pissed off people with The Last Jedi that they have pretty much left Star Wars behind. They've already done this with Solo so the more directly linked film to SW8 is gonna get even more objection to.

Little trust in where the story is going. Stuff that was set up in The Force Awakens was just written off in The Last Jedi so there's less faith in how genuinely created the story will be in the next instalment. All this 'making it up as we go' is making many people disgruntled with doubt at these films.

I think that's pretty much it. What do you guys think?

fuck telling the same SW story over and over. Rogue One is the best SW movie I've seen because it is free of that trap.

i'm only suggesting they take the character as seriously as he was taken by Lucas in ROTJ.

Maybe there is a middle way.

Instead of a Boba Fett being the bumbling idiot, they could give him a buffonish redneck cousin for a sidekick. Kinda like that old jalopy tow truck from the very successful DISNEY'S PIXAR'S CARS which is popular with the kids. I can see it now: Larry the Cable Guy is....BUBBA FETT.

They could reveal that Boba escaped the Sarlaac by having his cousin Bubba pull up his jalopy of a tow-speeder and lower a winch down into the pit. Maybe they could set Bubba up as Boba's Q or Luscious Fox and have him build equipment and weapons for Boba. Then Boba could be like "Bubba, your shitty jetpack malfunctioned again!" and that's why his jetpack went nutso when Han tapped it with a stick, just in case people think that's a plothole or something. Just make a whole movie explaining that just in case.

Then have Bubba Fett break the fourth wall (because DEADPOOL is popular with the kids and it would reek of stinky desperation) and be like, "Betcha regret payin to watch this shit, yuh fuckin dipshits!" and then he farts.

20 mil opening, easy.

I never thought of Han Solo as a joke of a character. he shot Greedo preemptively. he was a smuggler.....and apparently some here lack the brain cells to understand the implications of that.....because the prevailing law at the time is the fucking Empire. Han isn't smuggling in space run by some high falooting moral government with a constitution giving sentient species rights of any kind. he's smuggling through space controlled by the fucking Sith run Empire, putting-children-in-cages fucking SITH EMPIRE. there is nothing jokey or lighthearted about that. it simply doesn't make sense to try to make a backstory like that into a sillyfest like the lego boys were trying to do, aside from any issue of "respecting the character", it would just be bad storytelling. want a jokey SW?? Family did a nice job already. the lego guys pretty much rip off the Family Guy formula for their movies anyway so I doubt their copy would be as good as McFarlane's original SW riff.
