Entertainment Weekly reports that a Boba Fett movie and a spin-off involving a young Han Solo will be the focus of the two Star Wars stand-alone spin-offs that Walt Disney Pictures confirmed were happening on Tuesday.
The Boba Fett movie will be set between the events of A New Hope and The Empire Strike Back and would follow the intergalactic bounty hunter, probably (and this is speculation on our part) on a mission for Jabba The Hutt.
The Han Solo movie takes place in the time between the prequel trilogy and the original trilogy and will require a brand new actor to step into the shoes of the loveable renegade pilot. It may or may not be based on an early Star Wars novel, 1979′s “Han Solo at Star’s End,” set two years before the events of the 1977 film.
