“Dark Disciple,” a new novel coming July 7th by Christie Golden, has a Boba Fett cameo. He shows up beginning in the later part of Chapter 22.
The book is “based on unproduced episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.” As we saw first-hand at Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, Young Boba Fett — voiced by Daniel Logan — already played a role in those un-released episodes. You can see some of the pre-viz work for those episodes on our YouTube channel, here with Cad Bane and here with Count Dooku.
- After Hondo has Slave I in “The Clone Wars,” Boba Fett has Slave I again in “Dark Desciple.”
- This suggests a storyline gap where perhaps Cad Bane trains Boba Fett.
- Because of the timeline for “Star Wars Rebels,” this “reunion” of Boba Fett with his ship could be a plot for a still-rumored (but much-desired) Boba Fett appearance in the upcoming season of the new cartoon.
