STAR WARS LEGENDS Writer Drops Some Hints About Which Stories Might Inspire James Mangold's Movie

The Expanded Universe may no longer be a thing but a veteran Star Wars novelist may have shed some light on where Lucasfilm and James Mangold are looking for inspiration for the planned spinoff movie...

Despite reports that Disney has pulled the plug on plans for Star Wars spinoffs, we've since learned that Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi are indeed still moving forward, with the former set to be directed by Logan helmer James Mangold. At this point in time, little is known about the direction the movie might take but a veteran Star Wars Legends novelist may have finally shed some light on that.

During a recent interview, Daniel Keys Moran revealed that he's spoken with Disney on a number of occasions and that his Boba Fett short story, "The Last One Standing: The Tale of Boba Fett," is going to serve as inspiration for the movie. For those of you who haven't read that, it focuses on Boba Fett's early life, documenting his fixation on and rivalry with Han Solo, and establishes much of his origin.

"I’ve had a guy at Disney email me a couple times over the years regarding Lucasfilm adapting Last One Standing into a Fett movie," Moran said. "Not asking permission, they own those works, just letting me know they were thinking about it. So that was kind. But after Solo stiffed, apparently there’s some question about the Fett movie being made." If that tale is adapted, expect to see Alden Ehrenreich's Han Solo
to return because he plays a key role in the story and would be essential to it.

Whether or not Boba Fett is going to happen remains to be seen but with Mangold busy for the next couple of years, it won't be for a while yet. What do you guys think of these details? Sound off below.
