The Second Standalone Film in the ‘Star Wars Anthology Series’ Reportedly About Boba Fett’s Origin Story

Boba Fett

According to The Wrap, the second standalone film in the upcoming Star Wars Anthology Series is going to be about bounty hunter Boba Fett‘s origin story. The film reportedly lost Josh Trank (Chronicle and Fantastic Four) as director last week, but is currently scheduled to release sometime in 2018.

With rebel spies the focus of ‘Rogue One,’ the next anthology film will explore the rich world of bounty hunters in the “Star Wars” galaxy.

Writer-producer Simon Kinberg has been closely involved in the creative process for the second anthology film, which is set in a separate movie universe that is not associated with “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” or upcoming Episodes VIII and IX.
