There has been endless speculation and rumours about Gareth Edwards’ previously untitled Star Wars spinoff, ranging from solo movies starring Han Solo and Boba Fett to bounty hunters who are hired by the Rebels to steal the plans of the first Death Star. However, the

Here’s a crazy theory for you. What if Rogue One is just a codename Lucasfilm are using to hide the fact that the movie is really about Boba Fett? The real title could actually be “Slave I”! Ok, maybe not, but it would still be great to see the fan-favourite character show up in this movie.
