Story by Mitchell Smith
The Next Star Wars movie should be about DR. Evazan and Ponda Baba!
Disney has the next few years covered with backstories on characters with the Han Solo story confirmed, Boba Fett Story, and a number of others on the horizon. Rouge One had a quick scene with 2 characters I would love to see the movie made on and by bringing Dr. Evazan and Ponda Baba to the big screen we also could get another longer closer look at the Mos Eisley Cantina. These 2 characters already have the death sentence on 12 systems, so what evil did they commit to get this hefty penalty stapled to them. There is the story Dr. Evazan was a cosmetic surgeon that disfigured his patients instead of making them look better and he in return was hunted down by a bounty hunter and got a little karma when the bounty hunter disfigured his face. This was where his friendship was formed when Baba rescued him from the bounty hunter.
They formed a partnership smuggling for the Hutts and the rest is history. It’s that history that I would love to see come to life. By bringing their story to life we could get some other characters involved from one of my favorite Star Wars scenes. Mos Eisley Cantina, full of scum and villainy best noted by Ben Kenobi. Ben who had an extensive stay on Tatooine, living in the outskirts to keep himself hidden after the fall of the Jedi, but obviously Ben had visited the cantina a time or two, so who knows how many times he may have run into these two villains. Han and Chewy were also no strangers to the cantina so there could be a number of staple characters who may have had a run in with these two over the years I would be interested to see some of the other cantina patrons and their dealings with Dr. Evazan and Baba, and what villainy they possessed. This is something that really could be brought to life and maybe even could have a series revolving around the cantina and all the patrons we know plus new ones who could be created. Hopefully soon Disney will get on this wagon and bring to life Dr. Evazan, Ponda Baba, Mos Eisley Cantina, and Tatooine.
Would you like to see these characters get their own film? Sound off with your opinions AFTER THE JUMP!
