Boba Fett in TIME

Published by in Headlines

According to the Star Wars Family Tree, appearing in this week’s issue of TIME Magazine on page 59, Boba Fett makes the list as an “other villain” for The Empire Strikes Back. But they’re quick to call him dead, citing their sources as “the films and starwars.com.” Will someone write a letter to their editor, or do we all just move on?

Other Villains

The evil Sith have only two members at a time–a master (Darth Sidious) and an apprentice. Obi-wan kills apprentice Darth Maul (I), who is replaced by Darth Tyranus, a.k.a. Count Dooku (II), who is in turn replaced by Darth Vader. (Got it?) Powerful as they are, the Sith duo need help, and in III they get it from General Grievous, who wears the lightsabers of slain Jedi as trophies. The new film also introduces Grand Moff Tarkin, who supervises the Death Star in IV. Boba Fett (V), clone of Jango Fett, becomes a bounty hunter like his “dad,” who is killed by a Jedi in II. Boba and Jabba the Hutt (VI) die when Luke Skywalker frees Han Solo from Jabba’s execution squad.

Boba Fett last appeared in an April 2002 issue of TIME Magazine, which profiled Attack of the Clones.
