The primary episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 contains a main plot level that’s remarkably much like the story define beforehand rumoured for a Boba Fett standalone Star Wars film.
Warning: spoilers observe for Season 2, episode 1 of The Mandalorian.
Again in 2014, a report urged that The Empire Strikes Again and The Power Awakens co-writer Lawrence Kasdan had pitched a Boba Fett solo movie that will be a couple of “full stranger killing Boba Fett and taking his armour, beginning a Man-With-No-Title bounty hunter story.”
The primary episode of Season 2 of The Mandalorian, ‘The Marshal’, contains a character who has taken Boba Fett’s armour for himself and now wears it whereas defending the Tatooine settlement of Mos Pelgo. Whereas not the very same plot, there’s a notable similarity right here, as a personality largely a stranger to the viewers (except for those that could have learn the Star Wars Aftermath novels) and is now strolling round dressed as Boba Fett.
Offered the rumours in regards to the Boba Fett movie plot had been really true, this wouldn’t be the primary time Star Wars has taken unmade previous concepts and used them as the idea for one thing new. A 2015 artwork ebook gathering idea work for The Power Awakens options photos of an underwater Death Star, which might have been included in a scene for Episode VII the place Rey explores the sunken wreck. That scene was, after all, not a part of The Power Awakens, however an underwater Loss of life Star did seem in The Rise of Skywalker. It might be we’re seeing an analogous case with The Marshal.
