Boba Fett Lives!

Recommended Posts

George Lucas has confirmed that Boba Fett did survive the Sarlacc pit.During an interview with Star Wars historian JR Rinzler, creator George Lucas apparently confirmed that the fan favourite bounty hunter no longer officially saw his demise in the Sarlacc pit at the end of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

It has been long established in the Star Wars Expanded Universe that Fett had managed to escape and live a long life outside the movies, but this marks the first time that Lucas has stated that he survived the encounter.

Lucas always maintained that Fett died in the Sarlacc. I don't know why... just stubborn I guess. :p

Maybe he's trying to cover his bases, in case Boba shows up in the new trilogy, lol. (Though I hope not.)

    • Boba Fett TV show heading for Disney+?

      An "insider" has reportedly informed We Got This Covered that there is a Boba Fett TV show being developed for Disney+. Further rumours surrounding the project infer that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for this series. 
      As with all rumours we are taking this with a hefty pinch of salt, after all Disney are already working on The Mandalorian which will launch with Disney+ in November this year. Those of us who have been around the rumour mill for a while might remember the whisperings of a young Boba Fett appearing in the ultimately cancelled Star Wars Underworld project. At that time Daniel Logan was apparently set to reprise his role of the up and coming bounty hunter, but Logan is now in his 30s.
      In October 2018 it was reported that a Boba Fett anthology film had been shelved due to the "poor box office performance" of Solo.
      Is there room for a Boba Fett TV show as well as The Mandalorian? I'm not sure there is. It's entirely possible that these rumours are actually leaks from The Mandalorian, given the similar premise, but like a lot of rumours it is also likely that it could just be wishful thinking on the part of the fandom.
    • Joss Whedon in Star Wars talks?

      The second Star Wars Anthology film ran into trouble recently when director Josh Trank stepped down from the project. Some reports say Trank was fired from the film after disagreements with the other key production crew members. In either case Lucasfilm are on the lookout for a replacement, and the latest rumors from Latino Review indicate that they may be looking to Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon to fill that spot.
      He has already expressed a desire to move on from the Marvel universe, after helming both Avengers movies and writing for Marvel's Agents of  SHIELD television series, and perhaps Disney aren't ready to let him go just yet. Another possibility is the fabled Star Wars live-action television series which has been in development limbo for a decade but occasionally pops up in a rumor, and he is no stranger to science-fiction or fantasy on TV, having created cult classics Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Dollhouse.
      No official source has yet commented on these rumors as usual, so little may come of them, but even the possibility of Joss Whedon joining Star Wars is sure to excite fans. 
    • Fan starts petition for George Lucas to return

      A Star Wars fan has created an online petition to bring George Lucas back to the Star Wars movies as the director of Episode IX. Lucas, who created Star Wars has had no involvement with the franchise, including The Force Awakens, since selling LucasFilm to The Walt Disney Company in 2012.
      The petition calls for Lucas to return as he is "the father of the franchise" and states that this would be a perfect way to end the sequel trilogy, and so far people seem to agree, with the petition gaining almost the 5,000 signatures requested within a week of publishing.
      George Lucas recently criticised The Force Awakens, saying that Disney had made a "retro" movie that he doesn't like, but later clarified that he still believe Star Wars is in safe hands with Disney who has previously worked with overthe past 40 years. In contrast to Lucas's views, critics have widley praised the latest instalment of the saga which has gone on to smash numerous box office records worldwide.
      Currently Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow is signed on as director for Episode IX, which is scheduled for release in 2019.

    • The Mandolorian live action TV show revealed

      The Mandalorian has been revealed as the first live-action Star Wars television series, and is now currently in production by Lucasfilm. It will be released exclusivley via Disney's own streaming service.
      The Mandalorian is set three years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the apparent death of the infamous Mandalorian bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Through the series we will follow the exploits of a lone gunfighter in the outer rim of the galaxy, far from the centre of power of the fledgling New Republic.

      Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels) will be directing the first episode, with other announced episode direcots including Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok). 
      Dave Filoni, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson join Jon Favreau as executive producers, and Karen Gilchrist will serve as co-executive producer.
