Though rumors have been popping up that he’s getting his own movie, it’s possible that Boba Fett could be making an appearance in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story. Some fans in Reddit were able to spot a familiar silhouette when it came to one of director Ron Howard’s tweets from the set.
This was the tweet from Howard:
And this is presumably the shadow of Boba Fett:
Of course, it could be something else entirely, but the silhouette is unmistakable. There’s even a small bump where the antenna is supposed to be. If it doesn’t turn out to be Boba at all, I’m going to make a leap and suggest that it’s Mandalorian armor that being kept in a certain collection.
With Han Solo and Boba said to have a rivalry behind the scenes of Star Wars, I can imagine this film would delve into the origins of that fight. They don’t have to be enemies per say, but I’d like to see Boba and Han clash at some point—that is, if Boba is in the movie.
Will Fett appear? I guess we’ll just have to wait for the film to find out.
Solo: A Star Wars Story hits theaters May 25, 2018.
