Report: Disney Moving Forward With Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Movies

Disney has a writer and director for a standalone Boba Fett movie and is pursuing creatives for an Obi-Wan movie.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that James Mangold, director of movies like 3:10 to Yuma and Logan, has been tapped to write and direct a standalone Boba Fett movie. Presumably this is because Disney is looking forward to a successful release of Solo: A Star Wars Story, the first movie since the Star Wars acquisition to focus on an existing character's past.

Furthermore, The Hollywood Reporter says that Disney is in negotiations with Stephen Daldry to direct the Obi-Wan movie, though there's currently no script or writers to make one.

A Boba Fett movie would likely explore the bounty hunter's adventures after his childhood appearance in the Star Wars prequels.
