Pet peeve: Original Trilogy Boba Fett fans acting like “you don’t understand the appeal of the character” if you enjoy him in the prequels or Clone Wars. Like … sorry that I enjoy a character I like getting a more fleshed-out backstory?
Look, if you preferred the original backstory he had in EU materials, that’s fine. If you preferred the aura of mystique he had about him and preferred not to know about his past, that’s fine. If you waited 20 years to see him again in a movie and were disappointed with that you got, that’s fine. You have a right to dislike the prequels’ interpretation of Boba Fett.
But understand that that for other fans, especially younger ones like myself, the Boba Fett of the prequels is just as much a character we grew up with as the OT Boba Fett, and for a lot of us he’s the version we fell in love with. Stop saying that our interest in the character is any less meaningful or worthy than yours.
(I’m sorry for the rant, I’m just tired of this attitude. It’s less prevalent on Tumblr than it is on other websites like YouTube, though. I’m sick of watching videos of Daniel Logan and Temuera Morrison on YouTube with so many comments like “Fuck this kid, he ruined Boba Fett” or “If you actually liked what the prequels did with him then you have no idea what Boba Fett is all about.” Especially since Daniel and Temuera have both been so gracious to the fans and so grateful to have played such a popular character.)
