Despite Rumors, There\’s No New \’Boba Fett Spin-Off\’ Quote Out There

A new quote confirming the Boba Fett spin-off? Not so fast…

This morning a bit of Star Wars “news” is flying across the internet. Except it isn’t new at all. One site posted a bit of news that’s over four months old as if it just happened, another site reposted it as news and now it’s spreading everywhere.

From what I can tell this was started today by The Inquisitr and reblogged by Jedi News when they posted a quote by Jon Schnepp about the Boba Fett spin-off:

“One of them is Boba Fett. It is. I know. I know for a fact. I will never reveal my source, but it is the one written by Lawrence Kasdan.”

Of course The Inquisitr didn’t provide a source for the quote, as it’s actually from last year. It originates from an AMC Movie Talk 24 hour live marathon where at one point Jon Schnepp blurts out the Boba Fett quote. It’s not new, and it most definitely didn’t just happen. You can view the part of the marathon right here on YouTube, it comes towards the middle right before some uninformed and tired Prequel bashing.
