News emerged in May that Disney and Lucasfilm had been developing a Star Wars standalone movie centered on the bounty hunter Boba Fett from Logan director James Mangold - although the project was never officially announced.

According to Variety, Lucasfilm is no longer developing the Boba Fett movie project. Disney and Lucasfilm are yet to comment.

Boba Fett debuted in 1980's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and re-appeared in 1983's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi as a mercenary for the Galactic Empire.

Jeremy Bulloch played the character in the two movies and Jason Wingreen provided Boba Fett's voice.

The untitled Boba Fett movie would have been one of the studio's Star Wars anthology films, which were being spun off as origin stories.

The first anthology film was 2016's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, followed by Solo: A Star Wars Story, starring Alden Ehrenreich as a young Han Solo.

Solo, which opened in late May, was a major disappointment with less than $US400 million ($A561m) in worldwide box office.

In the meantime, Disney has been developing its Star Wars streaming TV series The Mandalorian.

The plot details were also revealed, with writer/producer Jon Favreau teasing The Mandalorian on Instagram.

"After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe," read his post, in the style of a Star Wars opening crawl.

"The Mandalorian is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic."
