Individual Star Wars Characters to get Movies?
The gaming website Kotaku published a story saying that at the very least we will get a Boba Fett movie and a Han Solo movie. Done right this could be great. One of my biggest complaints about Star Wars after the first two movies was that the franchise got caught up in the Big Story of the creation of Darth Vader and the rise and fall of the Empire. What made the first Star Wars movie great was that the Empire and how it worked wasn't really important. Darth Vader was evil and Luke and Han had to save the princess who ended up saving them. Shit blew up, Han Solo was funny and everyone loved it. Now, if we can get movies focusing on Boba Fett and Han Solo that have nothing to do with the Big Story then we could have something to sit back and enjoy. How about a move featuring Han Solo that is about nothing more than a smuggling trip gone wrong? If you needed to you could even loosely tie it into the Big Story by having the movie be about the smuggling mission that got him into trouble with Jabba the Hut. My money is on that, by the way.
