Undeniable Fact About AOTC #3: It Established Boba Fett’s Origins

Some fans love Boba Fett, others don’t understand why some fans love Boba Fett. AOTC introduced the origins of the bounty hunter but I would argue it was more than mere fan service. Lucas had intended all along that there be some connection between Boba Fett and the stormtroopers (originally he had been a rogue stormtrooper who went into business for himself) and that connection remains, since what becomes the stormtroopers (more on them tomorrow) and Boba Fett share the same progenitor, Jango Fett. And I like Jango Fett. He’s cool. Lil’ Boba was pretty entertaining as well, like his evil laugh when Jango was trying to evade Obi-Wan in the asteroid field. The one time I felt sorry for ol’ Boba was when he held on to his father’s helmet on Geonosis.

    I’m one of those fans who never really loved the character, but I agree with you about Boba holding Jango’s helmet (head) after he was beheaded was a very sad scene. It also explains why Boba hated the Jedi so much.

    I actually only became a fan of Boba Fett after receiving a Lego set of Slave I as a gift, complete with a Boba Fett minifigure.

    Then came AOTC. A single glimpse at the list of characters on the SW official website and the sighting of Boba Fett’s name was enough to get me hyped for the film. Jango Fett and, ultimately, the clone troopers became SW icons for years to come.

    AOTC was a real treat for those of us who loved SW’s armoured badasses. That film and the twelve years of SW media that followed elevated their importance from mere eyecandy and cult favourites to characters of great import, key components of the overarching Star Wars story, and (in the case of the clone troopers) tragic figures.

    They say that Boba Fett might get a spin-off movie

    I love the scene where Jango bumps his head, indicating where the OT, stormtroopers got that trait from. Sadly, Rebels will try to retcon, that joke it seems. I hope they don’t try to retcon, more of the films.
