    If it was MCU, and we were getting three movies per year - then sure, make Bobba Fett, IG-88 and Lando movies, then have them team up against Darth Maul in a crossover. But if we are to get one movie per year, let it be something grand, new and important.

    And here's something to remember the proposed main character of a movie.

    Okay so, you're bored with a character that has what, two-three minutes screentime? So I'm presuming that characters with more screentime than that are absolutely exhaustively boring. So, extras? Extras are exciting? We do spin-offs about extras? "Boba Fett doesn't have enough backstory for a spin-off"? What, does that even mean? The spin-off is where you introduce the backstory.

    I'd be in favor of "No More Aping the OT In Every Single Regard."

    I'd get that tattooed on the LFL executives' foreheads, if it helped enforce the message.

    Well my view has changed somewhat. I'd love a spinoff which explores the underworld in general (Jabba, Boba and the other bounty hunters) but I don't want the whole thing to revolve around Boba. I don't want this whole porn-like "WOAH look at this!" thing with him (like they kinda did with Lando)

    It has to make sense and use characters properly.

    I think people have a fear of backstory on some characters. I don't think the prequels helped, as Anakin was a bit of a disappointment for many.

    I'm not opposed to Fett story, but I hope they'd keep Fett as Fett and not the kid who only becomes Fett for 2 minutes at the end, kicking butt and leaving fans to wonder why they didn't do that all movie instead of just 2 minutes worth at the end. I don't want Fett unmasked, doing dopey eyes at some girl, or whining about power converters to Jabba.

    In that sense, I don't think they should make a Fett movie per se, but a movie where Fett is highly implicated in and shines, as Fett, not as that guy who takes off the Fett mask and is humanized.

    Boba Fett as a kid was already explored in the Clone Wars, so I don't think they are going that route again. Besides, Fett's whole appeal is based on his cool armour. so it makes no sense from a business perspective to make a movie without him wearing it.

    I don't disagree that's something that may be a factor. Though in relation to Boba Fett it's one of those things where, he was pretty much chumped in RotJ and as mentioned by Jack, the prequels pretty much did as much demystification of the character as can be done. So in the case of fearing a Fett movie I'd really have to say, what's left to be afraid of? It's almost like there's no where to go but up from here. Surely the priority with a Fett movie would be to undo any perceived damage and restore the cool factor to the character. That would seem to me a no-brainer.

    Yeah I don't think those would be at the top of my, "cool Fett movie ideas" list either.

    Sounds good to me.

    Its an interesting question. Should there be a film, or in this case, a series based around Boba Fett? I don't know. I think I liked him being sort of this man of mystery type character. And I think I'd much rather see him doing the bounty hunter thing in the days of the empire. Like leave him dead. Yeah, the death was weak AF but characters need to stay dead (I'm looking at you Palpatine).

    Having said that, of course I'm gonna watch Book of Boba Fett. LOL
