Walk of Fame Boba Fett Movie Director Fires Off Warning To Star Wars Fans Published 7 months ago on Jul 16, 2018 By Will Gardner It doesn’t take much to rile Star Wars fans. And when filmmakers make changes to their favorite storylines and characters, the backlash can be severe. But as director James Mangold prepares to tackle the long-rumored spinoff movie about Boba Fett, he warned fans recently they might want to back off, or face unintended consequences. A Director’s Warning Shot In light of poor reviews and even a fan backlash over the movie Solo: A Star Wars Story, Mangold weighed in on Twitter, stating that filmmakers might choose to shy away from taking on big franchises such as Star Wars. His tweet comes as some angry fans began calling for Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy to resign based on what the company is doing with the storylines in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo. Powr But if that sort of backlash becomes the norm, Mangold said filmmakers might decide to play it safe rather than creatively make changes that could result in better movies. “At the point when work writing & directing big franchises has become the emotionally loaded equivalent of writing a new chapter of The Bible (w/ the probable danger of being stoned & called a blasphemer),” he tweeted, “then a lot of bolder minds r gonna leave these films 2 hacks & corp boards.” At the point when work writing & directing big franchises has become the emotionally loaded equivalent of writing a new chapter of The Bible (w/ the probable danger of being stoned & called a blasphemer), then a lot of bolder minds r gonna leave these films 2 hacks & corp boards. — Mangold (@mang0ld) July 5, 2018 Mystery Revealed About Boba Fett? Mangold has his work cut out for him. His movie could finally shed light on one of the most popular Star Wars characters, who has spent decades shrouded in mystery. Star Wars fans know Boba Fett as the best and most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Despite spending little screen time in the movies, Fett has managed to accumulate millions of die-hard fans and earn the ranking of 79th greatest movie character of all time. The Telegraph But any revelations or character changes could trigger a fan backlash worse than that of Jar-Jar Binks’ introduction in the original Star Wars trilogy. For example, when Spider-Man fans learned their favorite wall-crawling hero would shoot webs as part of his power set in Sam Raimi’s 2002 movie instead of using mechanical web-shooters as in the comics, the move divided fans and spawned a decade-long debate as to whether doing so tampered too much with tradition. Likewise, Mangold is treading on sacred ground when it comes to Boba Fett, whose fans have waited decades to finally know more about their favorite bounty hunter. The Plot Thickens Plot details are being kept under wraps. Fans will have to wait and see whether the film is set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, sometime during the Original Trilogy or after Return of the Jedi, with Fett escaping from the Sarlacc Pit, as shown in the non-canon expanded universe. MovieWeb There’s no doubt that if Mangold does something with the character that fans don’t like, he’s going to hear about it. But if fans also don’t give room for creativity, they could end up with corporately produced films that leave little to be desired. UP NEXT Here’s Everything We Know About The Star-Studded ‘It&...
