Moments ago, Jonathan Rinzler, Star Wars scholar and Lucasfilm historian, was asked today on his Reddit AMA if Boba Fett survives the Sarlacc:

"Yes, he does. I have been in meetings with George [Lucas] where he confirms that Fett survived. If it comes from George then it's true!"

See the comment for yourself.

(Helmet nod to Matt at Jedi News? for the head's up!)

This confirms something we've heard -- but less in the spotlight. Back in 2012 at Celebration VI, Lucas was recorded without his knowledge at an exhibit of Boba Fett fan-made helmets. In that video and our news report, Lucas says Boba Fett did not die.
