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”.
