Any hopes that #StarWars fans may have continued to have that a long-awaited #BobaFett movie would be filmed have been crushed. During an encounter between reporter Erick Weber and #LucasFilm head Kathleen Kennedy at a special screening of “Black Panther”, she reportedly told Erick that the “Boba Fett movie is 100% dead”.
While it had been announced one day before the “Solo: A Star Wars Story” movie opened in theaters that James Mangold would write and direct the Boba Fett movie, its poor box office receipts caused LucasFilm to put all of the one-off standalone movies on hold.
The reason that Kathleen Kennedy gave for killing the Boba Fett movie is the upcoming live action series “The Mandalorian”.
Police are investigating a theft that occurred on the set of the upcoming live-action #StarWars series #TheMandalorian on Oct. 24, 2018. #Lucasfilm is scrambling to ensure that no major secrets to the show have been compromised.
The theft includes a lot of expensive equipment from the camera department that may also contain a memory card storing sensitive information about the upcoming series.
Both Lucasfilm and the Manhattan Beach Police Department have launched investigations to try and locate the missing equipment. Crewmen responsible for the cameras have been questioned.
#StarWars creator George Lucas paid the set of the upcoming live-action streamed series #TheMandalorian a surprise visit where he met with writer & producer Jon Favreau, as well as Dave Filoni, who produced the animated “Star Wars” series #TheCloneWars and #Rebels. Dave Filoni will direct the first episode of “The Mandalorian”, which follows the lone bounty hunter “in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.”
#StarWars today revealed the name of its upcoming live-action internet series: #TheMandalorian. They also revealed the first image of the main character. The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. The story follows “the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic”.
The series will be written and executively produced by Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau. Dave Filoni (of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels) will direct the first episode.
