Rumor: Boba Fett Movie Probably Won't Film Before 2020

Sorry, Boba Fett fans. It looks like the bounty hunter's Star Wars story won't be happening any time soon.

It was recently announced that Logan director James Mangold would be teaming up with producer Simon Kinberg again on a Star Wars anthology film centered on the mysterious Boba Fett, a bounty hunter who developed a rabid fanbase following his first appearance in Star War: The Empire Strikes Back.

But with Mangold's next film, Ford vs. Ferrari, set to start production in California this summer, Omega Underground reports that the Boba Fett movie probably won't start production until at least 2020. With Mangold busy with production on Ford vs. Ferrari, a press tour and more, it'll likely be a wait before his schedule is freed up.

That could be good news for fans of another Star Wars icon, though. The site is also predicting that Kenobi: A Star Wars Story will probably be the next Star Wars film to release following 2019's Star Wars: Episode IX, with Boba Fett's solo outing pegged for the following year.

And while there has been plenty of talk surrounding solo films about Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Lucasfilm has not officially announced either project.

Debuting in theaters on Dec. 20, 2019, the next Star Wars film is Star Wars: Episode IX, directed by J.J. Abrams.
