I think most of us can agree that Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a success with the fans and the box office. The massive hype has moved on to other big blockbusters such as Deadpool, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice and Captain America: Civil War at the moment, but let us not forget that the next Star Wars film, Star Wars: Rogue One, is being released in December. There will be a new Star Wars film every year and we should expect December to become the month where new Star Wars movies are being released. Quite frankly, I think this this could make Christmas an even better time of the year!
Rogue One is the first ever anthology film or 'A Star Wars Story'. These are single films focusing on a certain character or time period along the Star Wars timeline. Rogue One will be focusing on the rebels who stole the plans for the Death Star. The movie will take place about one year before the original 1977 Star Wars: A New Hope.
A few days ago, we got to see a glimpse at the Rogue One costumes, such as displayed above, at the Nuremberg Toy Fair in Germany. Now, at the fair, there is a promotional image advertising all of the new LEGO Star Wars sets, ranging from the Force Awakens, Rebels, Classic, and even Rogue One. See the image below and you will see that the new LEGO sets weren't the only things that were revealed:
The image for Rogue One shows what appears to be the ship of bounty hunter Boba Fett: Slave 1, a modified prototype Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft that was previously owned by his father, Jango Fett. This promotional picture might have just revealed that the big baddy for Rogue One is Boba Fett.
Boba Fett was rumored to have his own anthology film after Rogue One and the one with young Han Solo. If so, it looks like they are really focusing on expanding upon the mystery of Boba Fett. It makes sense for him to be the villain of Rogue One as he would be hired by Vader to hunt down the rebels. It could be him and his team of bounty hunters, maybe including Bossk, IG-88, Dengar, and maybe even Cad Bane? Rogue One can't come any sooner, can it?
