George Lucas: “I want to do a Boba Fett story”

Published by in Film & TV

IGN has an exclusive clip of Young Boba Fett and interview with supervising director Dave Filoni:

IGN TV: It’s no secret that Boba Fett has such meaning to Star Wars fans, so when George came in and said, “OK, I want to do a Boba Fett story,” what was your reaction?

Dave Filoni: It’s exciting, because when something like that comes from him, then I know that we should be doing it. It’s always important to me that it’s motivated by George, that it’s the story he wants to tell, and he weighs in on what he thinks and what the scenarios are going to be. But the challenge was going to be: how do we keep this guy mysterious and interesting, when telling the story about when he’s 10, 11 years old — and not giving away so much about him? I didn’t even want, at the end of it, to really know Boba as well as you know Anakin, when you start to see him as a little boy. It had to be different from that, even though there were going to be some similarities. Yes, they’re both kids, but Boba’s a very driven kid. He’s very focused, and because of the death of his father, he’s trying to decide what to do with all of that anger, all of that revenge feeling. It was a great point to come in on his character, and contrast him against Aurra Sing and using the Jedi to see where we can take his character.
