Disney needs a complete galaxy of Star Wars spin-offs, it appears—with the younger Han Solo film nearing the end line with Ron Howard on the helm, information broke yesterday that Stephen Daldry is in line to direct a solo Obi-Wan movie. That mission is reportedly nonetheless in very early phases, however the studio presumably is aware of that Ewan McGregor would fortunately present some extra bearded handsomeness and wry counsel. That is along with the standalone Boba Fett film that was introduced again in 2015.
Now we’ve discovered that the lineup may even make room for a spin-off about Tatooine-based crime lord Jabba The Hutt. Selection’s submit on the Obi-Wan standalone pic had that tidbit nestled in with a reference to the Boba Fett film, however all initiatives are reportedly in improvement. Now that he’s bought much more free time on his fingers—and assuming he can tear himself away from himself—Steve Bannon bears a hanging resemblance, and will completely play Jabba. It’s not the “Nazis and Mel Gibson“ film he’s been desirous to make, however at this level, he’ll most likely take what he can get.
