But you’ll only die tired

Golden eggs, you say? Let’s cut open the goose:

[S]omeone out there is floating the idea of Boba Fett and Yoda movies — and apparently chatter on fan boards suggests a Jabba the Hutt movie.

Yeah, but who would actually want to watch that sort of dreck?

There are currently eight Star Wars movies out now, with two more coming in the next nine months. Exactly half of those are worth watching a second time, and of those four only one — Rogue One — is outside of the original trilogy. I’d love to be proven wrong, but I can’t imagine that either The Last Jedi, due out in December, or next May’s standalone Han Solo movie are going to be added to that list.

The only person I can imagine who really really wants a Boba Fett solo movie is George Lucas, because it would get him off the hook for Stupidest Thing in Star Wars History, the creation of Jar Jar Binks. And if that don’t scare you, meesa got no hope for you.

Not even that can save George’s soul at this point.

    The fact that he breathed the name of That Creature which Shall Not be Named along with Yoda and Fett now makes me fear that they will give him (it?) a movie in the future.

    And they will deserve every ounce of blowback they get in re: the concept of stereotyping.

    They blew two chances at cinematic greatness in the most recent SW flick, William Shatner was NOT cast as the Big Giant Head, err, Sith lord, nor was JJB revealed to have been the Sith Lord, taking over after Palpatine’s gravitational denouement.
