What's your take on this whole "Boba Fett is boring" thing that happened on twitter yesterday (July 21st) that even Lucasfilm employees jumped in on? I am a Fett fan and I will admit he's overrated but tbh Lucasfilm not using the franchise's arguably most famous poc character because they think he's boring is bs imo
Yeah, it’s kind of sucky to hear! Boba Fett isn’t my favorite, and we do know a lot of his story already, but Lucasfilm jumping onto the band wagon feels a bit…weird. Lucasfilm and the fandom are notorious when it comes to ignoring characters of color, and Boba, being played by a Maori (I think? Sorry if this wrong) still is solid representation despite being a bit overrated.
All in all, I think a Boba Fett movie would be super rad, as we get a Pacific Islander lead and hopefully more mention of the clones and Jango, and it’s kinda disappointing that the fandom forgets about the fact that he’s a POC because he’s a popular character. I think his story has potential, and it IS b.s that Lucasfilm ignores that, especially with him being arguably the most famous POC in the Star Wars saga.
