Star Wars Spin-Off Film About Tatooine Is Currently On Hold

Wait, did Lucasfilm reveal former plans for a standalone Star Wars movie about Tatooine’s Mos Eisley?

Yes. And now it may never see the light of day.

According to Slash Film, Solo production designer Neil Lamont confirms there was a Tatooine-centric film in the works.

“We were just starting our work on another Star Wars spin-off and yeah,” he says. “We were actually just making our mark on Tatooine — which would have been interesting and some other new galaxies.

Just think; we could have seen a Star Wars film about the seedy and dangerous types that frequent the Tatooine spaceport. Or we might have seen Tatooine be the focus of an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie. Both the former and latter in-development projects have been often confused with each other.

While the Tatooine film is on hold, Lamont reveals there is still interest in revisiting that material. “So hopefully, if that comes back, we’ll get the chance to be able to do that further,” he says.

One of most famous part of Tatooine is the Mos Eisley Cantina. This is where Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan would meet Han Solo and Chewbacca. It is also the spot where bounty hunter Greedo would make the fatal mistake of blackmailing Han.

Who knows? We may very well see more of the wretched hive of scum and villainy. Maybe not in a solo movie, but Tatooine might appear again on the big screen someday.
