Star Wars – Two Origin Films Confirmed, and Hamill Starts Training

swRecently, I reported on initial rumors surrounding the upcoming origin films for Star Wars following the release of Episode VII in 2015. Today (well, actually back in February) comes confirmation that both Han Solo and Boba Fett will the first to get their own movies.

The Han Solo film is said to take place between, Episode III: Revenge of the Sith & Episode IV: A New Hope. The Boba Fett film will take place between, Episode IV & Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, following the bounty hunter on one of his most dangerous missions.

No official word yet on who will be the star of the third origin tale.
Additionally, Robert Englund of A Nightmare on Elm Street fame let slip that his friend Mark Hamill is currently hitting the gym to return as Luke Skywalker.
‘Mark now — they’ve got Mark in the gym, because Mark’s coming back as Luke Skywalker. They’ve got him doing his sit ups.’

Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford are also rumored to reprise their original roles, but neither the actors nor Disney have confirmed anything (yet).

About Reporter Michelle Lawhorn:
Michelle, a.k.a. Stormraven, is what can only be described as an eclectic nerd. Her interests and expertise range from Doctor Who to Lord of the Rings, cosplay to comics, and Bollywood to opera to name just a few. When not raving about her “fandoms”, she can be found working on projects as an Associate Editor at Haven Publishing and adding to her ever-growing list of Things to Cosplay. She can currently be found searching for more material to feed her newfound obsession with Star Wars.

About Michelle Lawhorn

Hailing from some kind of void beyond the stars, Stormraven indulges in costuming, writing, and flailing excessively over her favorite geeky things; Star Wars is at the top of the list and will remain there for quite some time.
