  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    From [link=http://www.denofgeek.com/movies/982977/star_wars_boba_fett_spinoff_movie_a_possibility.html]Den of Geeks[/link]:


    Usually I wouldn't even bring this up, but it's been a slow summer and we need something to liven up the mood. Or become enraged at. And even though the idea's a remote possibility, Johnston's worked with Lucas before on the original Star Wars films, as well as Indiana Jones.

    "Don't get your hopes up" -charming way to start a thread:p Sounds mildly interesting but well frankly Boba Fett is not something that makes me getting my hopes up:p It is probably just more "I've done terrible things- but jedi started it" kind of stuff with Daniel Logan and GL's retcons......

    Sounds like he just wants to fulfill a fanboy wet dream of his. Completely unnecessary anyway, we know more than enough at this stage about Boba Fett.

    I would only be interested in it if it involved the other bounty hunters. Otherwise, my thoughts on it are as such; bleh.

    I seriously doubt this guy has even heard of TCW, let alone the characters in it.

    Boba Fett is good as a side character. He doesn't need his own story.

    He didn't say he would write it either and of course he would learn about them when discussing with Lucas- but looks like this was just a random comment and nothing really coming stuff-....

    Did some more snooping into this guy's credentials.

    Something in his [link=http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Joe_Johnston]Wookieepedia article[/link] may be relevant:

    Interesting. But if he brings it up to George, it's ultimately the latter's decision. And he may be too involved in the live action show to care.

    Wow.

    If I didn't know any better, I'd think you guys have never heard of Joe Johnston until now. [face_plain]

    I'd love to see a movie centered around Boba Fett.

    It could always be used for a theatrical look at the live action series (ala The Clone Wars movie).

    As long as they don't have the "You did it first" angle, then I'm fine with it.

    I doubt it's ever going to happen, no matter how much Johnston may want it to.

    You'd think a guy like that would be more well known, especially in a SW forum, but I guess not.

    He was on the Empire of Dreams Documentary on the OT bonus DVD. That was the first time I had heard of him.

    Please, just no, I hate Boba Fett. It´s one of the worst and more unconsistents characters in SW and he doesn´t deserve a movie, maybe some episodes in an animated series I know [face_plain]

    wow, i'm also really amazed that next to no one knows who Johnston is and his contribution to Star Wars.

    To enlighten a few people he played a massive part in the model making, design and storyboarding of the OT as well as production designing the Ewok movies. Most of what you see in Empire is Johnstons design.

    considering 95% of what makes Fett is his armour surely it would be cool to see the guy that concepted, designed and had a hand in the construction & painting of it come full circle and head up a movie [if captain america doesn't blow that is :p ]

    Man , I sound like a Johnton fanboy! As a prop maker and concept artist myself I sometimes forget some people aren't as bothered about the making of a film as they are in the finished product :D

    So if there is a Fett movie I'm all for it.

    i wouldnt mind seeing if it was post ROTJ and took kind of a Bounty Hunter Wars approach and started with him escaping the Sarlaac.

    I still fail to see why that would make it any more worth watching than if it were to be directed by anyone else.
