As with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Solo: A Star Wars Story, this will be a standalone movie, the third in the series. After the success of Rogue One, Lucasfilm began developing other movies that would be spun off from the main Star Wars line, include stories centered on Han Solo, Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi, which Stephen Daldry is currently in discussions to direct. There is no information on a cast, storyline, or potential release date for the Boba Fett film. Solo: A Star Wars Story premieres May 25th.
