Temuera Morrison to lead Gareth Edwards Star Wars flick

Today's Star Wars rumour is that Temuera Morrison has been cast in Gareth Edwards' spin-off Star Wars film. Morrison previously featured in the prequel trilogy playing Jango Fett, father of Boba Fett. If he has been cast, then all money is obviously on Edwards' film being the Boba Fett spin-off that was widely anticipated and that Morrison will play Boba some time between seeing his father's head cut off in Revenge of the Sith and his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back when he was dispatched by Darth Vader to find our heroes.

However, before you get TOO excited this rumour is entirely based on an IMDB listing - and we know just how unreliable they can be, especially with a film as tightly guarded as this. There's a good chance this could happen but it's all based on pure guess work and on 'evidence' that is almost as unreliable as Wikipedia. Therefore, our advice is to hold off paying any visits to the Galactic Bookies until something more reliable comes along.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
