Interviews with Jeremy Bulloch, Temuera Morrison, and many retrospectives on Boba Fett in the saga and its creative influences. Also, fans of The Boba Fett Fan Club may want to give special attention to the San Francisco Chronicle this Saturday on the front page of the Entertainment section: "Forget Anakin -- for die-hard 'Star Wars' fans, Boba Fett rules." [Welcome, you 500,000 new visitors who have come, thanks to this great article!]
USA Weekend Poster Insert, this 5/15

USA Weekend, for example, is providing an insert pre-production drawing of Anakin Skywalker, autographed by George Lucas, on May 15th. They are just one of many, many newspapers this week focusing on Star Wars, but not necessary Revenge of the Sith.

The New Scotsman asks Jeremy Bulloch, the man behind the intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi that he became a cult figure, "if he ruled the world":


"I'd give everyone the day off."

If many of the Storm Troopers are indeed photocopies of Jango Fett, does that mean that when Boba was on Cloud City, he could have turned to any of them and asked them to take off their masks, only to find his dad standing there?

"Well, there's like a 50/50 chance," Lucas answered. "Not necessarily — he could be anybody, he could be the Mock 2 or the Mock 3, or he could just be some poor guy who got shanghaied."


The Registry-Guard talks with MC Chris, famous here at The Boba Fett Fan Club for the uber-popular "Fett's Vette" track (and music video), who opened the Revenge of the Sith screening in Eugene, Oregon:

MC Chris - formerly the voice of Hesh on the Cartoon Network's "Sealab 2021" - is a "Star Wars" fan. Even better, he's a "Star Wars" fan who wrote his own rap song, "Fett's 'Vette," about everyone's favorite bounty hunter.


The Indiana Statesman talks to Temuera Morrison about him excitement (and employment) working on the video games and the technology that goes along with it.

"It's a thing that can happen in the future. This is the future of entertainment. More games, more computer stuff," he said. "I don't mind doing the little things to help LucasArts with their games. I mean, I'm part of the Star Wars family from Episode II on. I did (Battlefront), and they'll probably call me to do the second one. I mean, the way the world is set up now, I can sit in my studio in New Zealand, in Auckland, and these guys in San Francisco can record it over the wire. It's pretty amazing."

"I'm so many people, I don't even remember my name," he said, with a smile.


Morrison also gets to tell the press about how he "relished the role of Fett," for an article for In Tune Weekend Magazine, part of McKeesport Daily News, Pennsylvania:

"They said, 'You're playing Boba Fett,' or something like that," he said. "And I said, 'Who's Boba Fett? I hope he's not one of those ugly characters.' Then I learn no, I'm playing Boba Fett's father. So I went back and got ("A New Hope"), and he's not even in it. Then I got ("Empire Strikes Back"), and if you blink, you miss him."

Source announces that you can win a trip to see Boba Fett, and also Darth Vader, through the May issue of Disney Adventures:

Readers will also have a chance to enter a contest to win a vacation package to Disneyland, Disney World, or on a Disney Wonder cruise. If that wasn't cool enough, the lucky winner will also meet the Dark Lord of the Sith himself along with his right hand man Boba Fett.


Premiere Magazine has a small bit focusing on Fett, although they're recapping the saga in brief:

ATTACK OF THE CLONES Meet Jango Fett (right [at]), template for the clones of the title, who in turn are the template for the stormtroopers of episodes IV-VI. Jango’s young son, Bobaâ€Â"who’ll become a notorious, Han Soloâ€Â"dogging bounty hunterâ€Â"is also around.

    not to insult lucas or anything but wouldnt it be more sensable that after 20 sum odd years all the clones are just too old to use cuz of their growth acceleration... and since the empire has control of the galaxy, they can now start recruiting civilians to become the storm troopers. just a thought. this would explain their different voices, and their lousy shots...

  2. Gracia says:

    Just finished reading SFChron article
    w/ my first visit to your site. Good stuff!

  3. Winton says:

    I read ''BOBA FETT RULES'' in the Chronicle Pop Culture and the writer failed to mention that Boba Fett didn't die in the Sarlacc Pit! Every die hard fan knows if they have read the three book series of The Bounty Hunter Wars that he survived to live on! If anybody knows how or who finally did him in please fill me in. Thanks!

  4. ben says:

    im not sure wht u mean exactly by "did him in" means, but im thinkin ure talkin bout who actually killed him. in tht case, NOBODY. i read like a billion different biographies of boba fett, n some dates all the way up to the yuzhan vong invasion.(2o years afta return of the jedi)he juss "mysteriously" disappears into the shadows of the underworld.

  5. matt says:

    you must also take into account that the books written post movies were not written by lucas and were written under the impression that fett was actually journeyman protector, jaster mereel...not a clone...i'm waiting for a new publication (after the realization that fett is a clone of his father jango) written about whether fett survives the sarlacc...fingers crossed

  6. taz says:

    Im yet to see 'Sith' however dissapointed that by all account Boba does not feature as a young Jedi slayer - and whats with all this 'disintergration' ref Vader in Empire.


    loose the force Keep the fett

  7. Winton says:

    Fans, I would appreciate any references to any literature, books etc. that follows Fett after he survives the Sarlaac Pit. I don't want to get into any details to ruin it if you are going to read it yourself, but from my readings, Fett recovers from his wounds after excaping the Sarlaac Pit with the aid of another bounty hunter and friend, summons Slave I, and as he exits the atmosphere of Tatooine, an adversary bounty hunter B--- detonates the explosive he planted on Slave I and the book ends! Other readings imply Fett detected the bomb on his ship before he took off and sent up a hologram of Slave I to deceive the other bounty hunter but I haven't read anything about Fett after this. Comments, anybody?

  8. ben says:

    yes. afta sending out an exact id format copy chip of slave 1 into space, fett quickly jettisoned the explosives n made it look like slave 1 had blown to atoms. Unbelievably, fett had already infiltrated Bossk's ship quarters in a split second n planted a false speaking bomb. Bossk, frightened, took out his most valuable posession(i wont spoil it to u wht it is, 4 its a big part of the boba fett series)n crammed in his escape pod, n escaped. but he finds out tht the bomb is IN the escape pod. when he thinks he's dead, he notices he's not. he finds a voice chip inside the blue box which was the "bomb". he is beaten once again. uc, i know this because ive read the entire bounty hunter wars series like, 10 times now. there's a lot more, but i can only explain if ne one doesnt mind emailing me.

  9. Chrysta Fett says:

    to Winton: go read the Bounty Hunter War by K.W. Jeter. It's a trilogy, the three titles being The Mandalorian Armor, Slave Ship, and Hard Merchandise. They are great I really recomend them.
