Yahoo news met with Guillermo Del Toro during SDCC where the famed fantasy scifi director pitched an anthology story that fleshed out the story of Jabba The Hutt’s rise throughout the criminal underworld of the Star Wars saga. Said the director,
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.
While he stressed that the ideal was unofficial we can certianly hope and wait.
