Star Wars is returning into our lives majorly. With another trilogy comprising of Episodes 7-9, Lucas film will release films in between Episode movies, under the “Anthology” umbrella – beginning with Rogue One. After that, we’ll get what we’ve been longing for – a Boba Fett movie.
We’re excited and you should be too because……..
1. An Opportunity To Make A Fanciful Character WORTHY Of His Legacy
Let’s be honest: Boba Fett kind of sucks, as far as what you really see of him in action.
All he does in Empire is follow the Millenium Falcon, snitch on them to Darth Vader, has Vader and the Cloud City people freeze Han for him, and after that give Han to Jabba . Furthermore, he’s not even a decent bounty hunter!
And after that came Return of the Jedi, where he’s clearly simply been hanging out at Jabba’s Palace ever after delivering Han, remaining off to the side, being unusual and not saying anything. Furthermore, when the huge battle breaks out, he gets caught by a blind person (well, Han), loses control of his jet pack, pummels into Jabba’s barge, and falls into the Sarlacc Pit. How clumsy!
This could be an opportunity to give Boba Fett the on-screen rebel depiction. Or if nothing else, it will help us overlook he met his end falling into a stationary desert mouth.
2. He’s A Fresh Start
Boba Fett’s whole past and future were pretty broadly mapped out…in the now non-canon Extended Universe books, comics, and games.
In the original trilogy, Boba Fett has precisely 4 lines, all in Empire Strikes Back and that’s it. On top of that, he’s on-screen for a great 20 minutes. By nature, he’s secretive and barely sketched out. He has a cool name, a cool outfit, and a cool ship. He also had a couple lines in Attack of the Clones, where he was only a strange kid who placidly grabbed his father’s severed head. Think of any awesome story you need, settle on whatever identity you need since there’s nothing holding down Boba Fett.
