Nerdy Fact #1617: Since George Lucas was originally planning on making 11 more Star Wars movies after the success of the first film, Boba Fett was created with the intention of becoming the central villain of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. However, shortly after production on the second film began, Lucas decided to end the series with Episode VI, and Fett’s role was heavily reduced.


If you’re going to do a Boba Fett movie, don’t give me any “young Boba Fett” or “Boba Fett vs Darth Vader” nonsense, or even “right after he escaped the Sarlacc” stories.

Give me almost-60-year-old Temuera Morrison, years out of the Sarlacc and sitting on his rapidly-deflating earnings, much-too-old-for-this Boba Fett being hauled out of retirement by some kid. The money is too good so he does one last job. True Grit in Space, basically.
