Earlier this year it was reported that Logan director James Mangold was in talks to direct a standalone Boba Fett film. Since then we have heard nothing on the project.
However, Erick Weber, made it clear that Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy is focused on The Mandalorian. Set to debut on Disney’s exclusive streaming service next fall.
Kathleen Kennedy just confirmed to me Boba Fett movie is 100% dead, 100% focusing on THE MANDALORIAN #StarWars

The fans had already lost hope for any more Star Wars standalone movies after the box office failure of Solo: A Star Wars Story. A Boba Fett movie was actually planned to be 2018’s Star Wars Story but Disney forced them to go with Solo.
But as for now, a solo Boba Fett movie is dead and The Mandalorian is the closest we are getting to a Boba Fett “related” project.
Boba Fett became one of the most popular Star Wars characters after he first appeared in just a few scenes in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Jango Fett, Boba’s father also appeared in the Attack of the Clones.
The Mandalorian has yet to get a release date.
