With the recent Disney purchase of Lucasfilms, talks of the new Star Wars trilogy began immediately following the announcement. But what was once rumored seems to be coming to life as Disney now are looking to expand on some of the characters from the original Star Wars films creating films based solely on the individual character. The two main characters in discussion are Han Solo and Boba Fet.
The adventures of Han Solo pre-A New Hope was actually the focus of one of the earliest Star Wars novels, 1979′s “Han Solo at Star’s End”, set two years before the events of the 1977 film.
The Boba Fett film, meanwhile, would be set between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back and would follow the bounty hunter on an intergalactic adventure.
