    Our friends at TheSWCA.com are putting on a presentation about the collectible coins, several of which include Boba Fett, who may or may not come up as a topic of discussion.

  • Keeping Up With The Fetts - Galaxy Stage (Halls N18-19, with queue and entrance in N17 - official schedule permalink)
    "The favorite Star Wars character Boba Fett has spanned generations of fans, and two generations of actors have portrayed the iconic bounty hunter. Jeremy Bulloch and Daniel Logan appear together with host David Collins for a fast-paced hour on the fringe."
    Note: this appears to be "live" streamed, albeit the next day on StarWars.com

SATURDAY, JULY 16

2:30 PM - 3:15 PM

  • Star Wars LEGO (Star Wars Fan & Collectors’ Stage - Door S11)
    Lots of LEGO sets include Boba Fett, including the recent The Force Awakens video game (although he didn't appear in the film), so he may be brought up at this event.

3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

  • Designing the Art of Star Wars with the Master: Doug Chiang (Behind-The-Scenes Stage - Door S10)

    Boba Fett has only showed up in some of the recent Marvel comics, but will they announce his own mini-series? It's possible to be announced here.

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

  • Star Wars Rebels Season 3 - Celebration Stage (The Auditorium, East Lower Level)
    Two episodes from Star Wars Rebels Season 3 will be shown. Fett hasn't been confirmed to be in the series, let alone this season, but it's a possibility given the timeline of events and previous guest characters. Maybe they will show something here? See our Fett Fact Check on mentions so far about Fett in the series.

4:30 PM - 5:30 PM

  • Hot Wheels and Star Wars: Car Design in a Galaxy Far, Far Away - Behind-The-Scenes Stage
    The description for this event revealed that a Celebration Europe 2016 exclusive would be a Hot Wheels Prototype Boba Fett, so we can assume it may be available at this event or more information about it will be announced here.

12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

    This "Story Group" panel event is where Boba Fett being neither dead nor alive came up last year, so it's possible to be mentioned again... or differently.
