In a galaxy far, far away, a Star Wars movie got cancelled. Yes, you read that right! The franchise that has been entertaining us for over four decades had a film project that never saw the light of day.
The movie in question was going to be directed by Josh Trank, who was known for his work on “Chronicle” and “Fantastic Four.” The project was set to feature Boba Fett, one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars universe.
Trank’s Boba Fett movie was supposed to be an origin story that explored the bounty hunter’s past. It was said to take place between “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith” and “Episode IV: A New Hope.” The plot would have followed Boba Fett as he navigated the criminal underworld and his rise as one of the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunters.
However, things did not go as planned for Trank’s film. In 2015, he was fired from the project due to creative differences with Lucasfilm. This decision came after his highly-publicized departure from another superhero film, “Fantastic Four,” which performed poorly at the box office.
The cancellation of Trank’s Boba Fett movie left many fans disappointed. The character has always been a fan-favorite and seeing him in his own standalone film would have been exciting. However, Lucasfilm decided to focus on other projects like “Rogue One” and “Solo: A Star Wars Story.”
Although we will never get to see Trank’s vision for a Boba Fett movie come to life, there is still hope for the character’s future in the Star Wars universe. He made an appearance in “The Mandalorian” series on Disney+, which takes place after the events of “Return of The Jedi.”
In conclusion, Josh Trank’s Boba Fett movie got cancelled due to creative differences with Lucasfilm. It would have been an exciting addition to the Star Wars franchise, but fans can still see the character in other media like “The Mandalorian.” Who knows, maybe one day we will get another chance to see Boba Fett in his own standalone film.
