    Sounds like it could be similar to Timothy Zahn's novel Scoundrels.
    In the book, the guy who hired Han, Chewie, and Lando to steal from this Black Sun guy, turned out to be...
    Boba Fett.
    @TIDMADT here are our Pirates!
    Who would play a young version of Max von Sydow's lead pirate then if he is indeed the lead of this movie?
    If the Falcon is in the movie maybe a young Lando will also be in...
    Or Dash Rendar borrowing the Falcon!

    I really feel uneasy about this announcement . I've always assumed the rebels obtained the Death Star plans in that first victory refrenced in the ANH crawl. I'd love to see this story being about Bothans and the second Death Star but not the first. We did know they would change the canon so I can't really complain. As long as the movies good right?

    Hummmm, I don't like this idea. I thought the Rebels(Ghost) would do that later in the show.

    seems a little hokey/Oceans' 11-y for this guy... i wonder how they would tie in Leia getting the plans to put into R2?

    Sounds like it is inspired off 1313 and the live action show scripts!

    Call me crazy but I don't think it is that bad.

    I always thought that getting the plans was the first big victory over the Empire.

    I understand thinking that Rebels was going to depict stealing the plans but I don't think they're planning on the about 4 year skip necessary for that. The one thing that troubles me are claims that the Falcon is going to play a part, that would directly contradict canon.

    They could always do what the EU did and have about 40 different plans getting stolen by about 100 different people haha

    Personally, I have to agree, I read this rumor and didn't buy it. Turning the bounty hunters into "good guys" even though they're mercs is a bad idea IMO. I don't see Boba Fett & co. working so hard to get the plans to the Death Star only to then work for the Empire a few years later. Surely the Empire isn't so inept that they wouldn't know or find out who stole or attempted to steal the plans. Doesn't add up IMO.

    Ok, as much as I agree, let me play advocate to the dark one here...

    First, if they want to do a Boba spin-off, they have faced the issue of exactly this... turning him into a "good guy"

    Second, the mercs wouldn't necessarily know they were working for the rebels... for instance, Admiral Fyan, who is the real spy, could send them in, claiming that a secretive group of Imperial reactionaries is developing something, and they need to know what is really going on... so the bad guys would be good guys thinking they were bad guys, stealing from the bad guys who they think are rogue bad...

    third, the empire knew... they always knew... but if this could be turned into a plot by the Emperor to allow the plans to be stolen to trace them back to the people they were being stolen for... well. that would be Imperial, wouldn't it?

    I kinda doubt this is the premise of the spin-off - Disney will just have produced a "heist" movie with 2015's Ant-Man, so why would they want to do another one so soon?

    Your points are interesting, But require alot of mental gymnastics to make them plausible.

    However, don't take my lack of enthusiasm for this rumor as any serious indication of displeasure or "hating." I will see the movie regardless IF Jar Jar Binks were the one hired to steal the deathstar plans OR hired to wash the slime off Jabba the Hutts back. I'm down for Star Wars in that I will shoot first and decide if I like it later.

    Like I said... I kinda doubt the whole thing. However... it would have a very Force Unleashed feel to it... the Emperor orchestrating the theft of the plans to flush out potential Rebels...

    Well, there you go. The only way a 'Boba Fett' Spinoff could work is if the movie were to portray Boba in the essence as the antagonist rather than the protagonist. Have him chase down bounties a la The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Have him blast a truck load of rival bounty hunting motherfuckers down. Hell, why not make him paint a rainbow out of the blood of a million species. Point is that Boba Fett should not be sugarcoated at all with this "he's a good guy cuz he's moral/wants money" bantha poodoo nor does he need to be given a dose of 'Guardians of the Galaxy' (which is the LAST thing Boba Fett should be). Make it 'Blade Runner' meets 'Fistful of Dollars'. Nothing more. Nothing less.

    You know... it could be that information is skewed... reading what you said, I had the sudden thought that perhaps it is an inside job... what if (as I speculated) the Emperor is aware there is an uprising (although, from the ending of RotS, he really ought to know who they are) and is trying to ferret them out. Fett (and the gang) are told to assist with the heist, but foil it at the end, rounding up the suspects... they don't succeed as much as is liked, but they don't exactly fail either, with the ending that Vader is in pursuit of the Tantive IV

    I'm against Boba Fett as the protagonist in any spin-off, but if they have to do it this isn't bad. Although nothing here says that Boba is one of the people stealing the plans. It would make more sense to me if Boba was hired by the imperials to hunt down the pirates hired by the rebellion to steal the plans. Perhaps our protagonists are GotG/Firefly style lovable smugglers with hearts of gold who are looking to make a buck and helping out the rebellion along the way, but they meet their match when they find out its not just hapless storm troopers protecting their target, its the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter.
