The Drill Down Five Questions Fans Need Answered For A Boba Fett Movie Published 8 months ago on Jun 19, 2018 By Jade Wilson Star Wars fans know Boba Fett as the best and most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy. Despite having few lines or battle scenes—and arguably, an embarrassing departure in the original Star Wars trilogy—fans place Fett high up on the iconic villain pedestal. But after decades of being wrapped in a shroud of mystery, Disney has tapped James Mangold to write and direct a Boba Fett movie, making him the evilest character to headline a Star Wars movie since Darth Vader. But Mangold has his work cut out for him. There have been many questions swirling around Fett that have to be answered for this movie to really take off with fans. Watch out, spoilers below. What Happened To Him After Episode II? Last we saw Fett, he was holding the decapitated head of his “father,” bounty hunter Jango Fett, after he’d been decapitated by Jedi Mace Windu in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. Fans learned Boba is the unaltered clone of Jango, who was raising Boba as his son. After that… nothing. The movie goes back to the Jedi and the clone troops’ battle against the Separatists and their robot army. We don’t actually see Boba again in the prequel movies. How did he take Jango’s armor and escape off the planet? Just how did he survive or receive his training to become a feared and dispassionate mercenary? Although not canon, Star Wars: The Clone Wars did offer some clues that could be used to answer the next question. The Washington Free Beacon The Inner Workings Of Boba Fett You don’t become the most ruthless bounty hunter in the galaxy without strong motivation. In the original Star Wars trilogy, next to nothing was ever established about the character and we never see any hint of the character’s emotion, much less his face from under his helmet. Some stories in comics (later deemed not to be canon) later gave various portrayals of the character as a stormtrooper who killed his commanding officer and even as a journeyman protector convicted of treason. But fans of Fett finally got a look (again, not canon) at his character on the small screen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars when Boba is reintroduced to fans as a youth whose goal is to avenge his father. He would go on to appear in multiple story arcs in the television series and was shown to be clever in the early days of learning the bounty hunter trade while also having an aversion to killing clone troopers. However, Disney and Lucasfilm have shown that they’re not afraid to throw old story lines out the window and take new routes with storylines as they see fit. Also, we know that Mace Windu met his end in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, along with many of the other Jedi. So even if avenging his father is chosen to be a motivator, what’s left to drive him once Mace Windu is killed? This leads to the next most interesting stage in Fett’s life. We Got This Covered Becoming The Top Bounty Hunter It should go without saying, but the galaxy is a big place with a lot of bounty hunters out there trying to make a living. Yet, Boba Fett managed to earn a reputation as the most ruthless and formidable of the bunch. Having been depicted as a formidable and ruthless individual, fans deserve to finally know just what this tough guy accomplished to make him so widely known that even Darth Vader doesn’t alter deals with him. Also, how tough is Boba Fett that he outclasses a galaxy full of bounty hunters? Fans of the original trilogy remember Boba Fett being built up as an awesome force to be reckoned with, only to be let down when the blaster bolts started flying. And speaking of that battle from Return of the Jedi… We Got This Covered Did He Really Die After Episode VI? Arguably one of the most disappointing moments in Star Wars lore is when a blinded Han Solo turns and accidentally stabs Boba Fett’s jetpack, sending him flying into what looked like a giant sand hole with spikes and tentacles that is actually a creature called a Sarlacc. The most awesome bounty hunter in the universe is killed by a fluke before he can show audiences just how great he is? Did he die? Fans were left thinking this, but novels and comic book stories were later released showing that Boba Fett in fact survived and went on to have adventures, which could have a huge impact on the rest of the Star Wars universe. And with all these origin stories, prequels, and sequels, how does Boba Fett fit in with them all? We Got This Covered Boba Fett’s Ripple Effect On The Movie-verse With so much mystique surrounding Boba Fett, Mangold has many options to choose from as to how Fett will tie in with the other movies. Have Fett and Han clashed before? Have there been other run-ins or influences by Fett that we’ve never seen before that fans have never considered after the original trilogy? With such a high-profile mercenary who only takes on the most expensive contracts, it’s likely Fett was working behind the scenes. With a character like Boba Fett whose background has barely been explored, anything is possible for an origin movie at this point. But with such a large fan base involved, Mangold might want to tread carefully and make sure that at least most of these questions are answered.
