Sadly, it looks like the Boba Fett movie is no longer a priority for Lucasfilm which is disappointing to hear.

Instead, Lucasfilm and Disney are now concentrating all of their efforts to The Mandalorian TV show out next year on Disney's own streaming service.

As reported by Twitter page EWeb (via ComicBookMovie), Kathleen Kennedy confirmed to them that the Boba Fett movie is 100% dead.

All efforts are now going to the TV show which is concentrating on similar characters to Boba Fett, although it's still unknown if we will ever see that character again.

Disney and Lucasfilm were wanting to make a Boba Fett movie for a long time, but production troubles came in the way.

Josh Trank was supposed to direct the movie, but he got fired after he directed the horrible Fantastic Four reboot. Trank reportedly wanted Boba Fett to be recasted as Michael B Jordan!

While Josh Trank was fired, the Boba Fett movie was still in early talks to be made.

However, it sounds like recent events have made Disney and Lucasfilm more cautious since the Star Wars brand is kind of showing fatigue now.

This all started thanks to the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story earlier this year. The movie was a Box Office disappointment and the lowest grossing live action Star Wars movie of all time.

The only Star Wars movie in heavy production at the moment is Star Wars: Episode IX. All of the spin-off movies have been put on hold as Disney and Lucafilm does not want to oversaturate the market with too many Star Wars movies.
