Here at The Nerdery, we do our best not to mislead our readers or listeners. That being the case, we tend to hesitate on some issues until we have a little more to go on. I’ve been sand bagging this particular article for over a week now. But today, I caught a rumor that is a little to tasty not to proceed.

With Rogue One slated for a December 2016 release, everyone is looking for what the second Star Wars: Anthology movie will center on. Rumors have been flying for quite some time that it will revolve around Boba Fett.

Chances are, if you’re reading this, you’ve already caught wind of that rumor. The rumor that you may not have heard is that Disney is courting Joss Whedon to direct the second Anthology film. Whedon is no stranger to Disney, having been heavily involved in the Disney MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe) since 2011’s Thor.

The first anthology film will focus on the rebel forces that stole the plans to the Death Star. If Boba Fett does receive his own movie, there are many different directions that film could go.

We saw Boba as a child in Episode II and Episode III, however, there’s a great deal of time between III and Empire. A full length film featuring his exploits before he was the the deadliest bounty hunter in the galaxy, would make good sense from a explanatory standpoint.

A feature film starting at his escape from the Sarlaac pit would definitely answer a lot of questions. Especially if it included his eventual change of heart towards the Empire. It would be incredible to see his rise to Mandolore as well.


How cool do I think a Joss Whedon Star Wars film would be? Legen……wait for it…..dary. I will personally be keeping an eye on this as it develops. The Nerdery will bring it to you with utmost accuracy.
