Josh Trank's Boba Fett Movie Had a Teaser
There have been rumors about a Boba Fett solo movie for a couple of years now, but according to a new report, we had no idea how close we came to seeing it happen. Not only was Fantastic Four director Josh Trank hired to make a Boba Fett anthology movie, but Lucasfilm actually prepared a teaser for it.

According to a new report from EW, a teaser for Trank's Boba Fett movie was supposed to premiere at Star Wars Celebration last year, when the teaser for Rogue One was revealed. 

Opening quote
After the release of the new film, the Star Wars braintrust will map out the further reaches of the galaxy. Among the titles that have been considered is a Boba Fett/bounty hunter movie that director Josh Trank was hired to make before he dropped out following the troubled production of his Fantastic Four reboot. It came so close to being officially announced, Lucasfilm even prepped a teaser reel to show at Star Wars Celebration in spring of 2015, sources tell EW. At the last minute, the split with Trank backburnered the project.

It's not surprising that there was once a Boba Fett movie in development, but it is definitely a revelation that it was so far in pre-production when it entered development hell. We're conflicted about whether we would even want a Boba Fett movie to happen, but for those of you who do, it might still be in the cards. Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that they will be planning their new slate of movies in January, and there's a chance that they will only be making anthology films after Episode IX.

"That's a conversation going on right now, too," Kennedy said. "I have to honestly tell you, could we [do nothing but standalones]? Sure. But I don't know. We are looking at all of that."
Closing quote

If we had to guess, there will likely be more saga films, but a Boba Fett movie could definitely still be on the table. if Lucasfilm thought the idea had legs to the point that they prepared a teaser for it, chances are they'll make the movie as soon as they find a new director.
