Spin-off is bounty be a huge hit

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

STAR WARS bounty hunter Boba Fett is get­ting his own spin-off movie, it was re­vealed yes­ter­day.

The hel­meted bad­die first ap­peared in the sci-fi fran­chise in 1980’s The Em­pire Strikes Back, where he cap­tures Har­ri­son Ford’s Han Solo be­fore en­cas­ing him in “car­bonite”.

And Boba Fett – who dies in Re­turn of the Jedi af­ter be­ing eaten by a hole-dwelling mon­ster – is now set to star in an “ori­gin” flick.

The spin-off will be penned by X-Men pro­ducer Simon Kin­berg and is set to hit cine­mas in the UK in 2018.

The first stand­alone an­thol­ogy film will be Gareth Ed­wards’s Star Wars: Rogue One, which will star Felic­ity Jones, Ben Men­del­sohn and Riz Ahmed.

That film fol­lows a group of re­sis­tance fighters who unite for a dar­ing mission to steal the plans for the Death Star. There are 10 times as many stars in the known uni­verse as there are grains of sand in

the en­tire world
