Star Wars: A spin-off Jabba the Hutt in preparation?

Star Wars spin-offs do not stop anymore. After the announcement of a solo film about Obi-Wan Kenobi, Jabba the Hutt would have his own project too. While it is announced in the film on Han Solo, Jabba the Hutt could be even more explored with a feature film centered on his person.

According to Variety, Lucasfilm and Disney would work on other Star Wars spin-offs and Jabba the Hutt is one of them.

The site explains: “Rogue One was the first standalone and Disney is currently shooting the movie about the beloved smuggler Han Solo. Other solo films are in development including Jabba the Hutt and Boba Fett. ”

The possible film on Boba Fett was put back on the carpet along with the announcement on Obi-Wan where a film about Yoda is also mentioned.

Jabba the Hutt is a fascinating character of the Star Wars franchise. A film about him would allow to see another aspect and explore the criminal side of the universe. This is clearly not a necessary film but it could be fun to see things from his perspective.

It should be noted that Lucasfilm and Disney are testing the field with all these spin-offs. These are just projects that are still far from being realized. Priority remains the main franchise with the third trilogy. The spin-offs will come after the release of Episode IX, not before 2019.
