Guillermo Del Toro Wants Jabba The Hut Origin Story (Video)



Guillermo Del Toro is at Comic-Con where he offered an update on filming Pacific Rim 2, and now talks about Star Wars.

Del Toro tells Yahoo that he would love to do a Jabba The Hut Star Wars origin movie.

“This is not real, this is me as a fat geek just geeking out and talking about it,” del Toro told Yahoo Movies on Friday, cautious to make sure he didn’t create some very false rumors. “I would do the sort of Godfather saga that Jabba the Hutt had to go through to gain control. One, because it’s the character that looks the most like me, and I like him. I love the idea of a Hutt type of mafia, a very complex coup. I just love the character.”

Speaking of Star Wars, Josh Holloway recently stated he would love to play Han Solo as well.
