As word begins to circulate over the possibility of an upcoming Star Wars film centered on Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover, comes word that another Star Wars favorite will be getting his own spinoff too.
That’s right Boba Fett will receive his comeuppance in a film of his own. When Boba Fett was initially revealed in Stars Wars: The Empire Strikes Back fans immediately took to him. Was it his battle-scarred armor, his then cutting-edge jetpack or his silent aggression? One can’t quite recollect.
I couldn’t find a good copy of this fight anywhere on YouTube, so I decided to upload the whole fight. This is only the 720p version; let me know if you would like me to upload the 1080p version. Bounty Hunter vs. Jedi Knight
Though he died rather unceremoniously in Return of the Jedi, Boba Fett’s origin and fate had been expanded upon in the Star Wars prequels and it has been fully realized just how important he is to the overall story arc in a galaxy far, far away.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, James Mangold will write and direct the offering.
This comes as Disney and Lucasfilm gear up for the release of the origin film of yet another of our favorite space scoundrels, Han Solo.
There will also be an upcoming origin film for Obi-Wan Kenobi. Obviously less cool than the others but still cool all the same.
Every Boba Fett scene from the STAR WARS trilogy, as he was portrayed by Jeremy Bulloch and the late Jason Wingreen.
We learned that Boba Fett was a mercenary charged with tracking down Han Solo for Jabba the Hutt, but we would later learn he is but a clone of Jenga Fett, the blueprint for the so-called perfect soldiers bred by the Empire for their stormtroopers.
He would die in the Sarlacc Pits when Like Skywalker freed Han.
But some recall that he appeared in the ill-received Star Wars Holiday Special cartoon on television prior to that.
A decade ago, Empire magazine named him the 79th greatest movie character of all-time while Fandomania named him as one of The 100 Greatest Fictional Characters of all-time.
That’s saying a lot considering the few speaking lines he’s had in the film.
