TL;DR

Boba Fett appearing in Season 4 would work for the plot but it's not confirmed

Last revised November 9, 2017. Please continue reading for all the facts versus the fiction.

The storyline for "Star Wars Rebels" takes place at a perfect time for Boba Fett, right before we see him in the first Star Wars: Special Edition. We also have hashtag activism campaign to #BringBackBoba after his unfinished story arc in "The Clone Wars" animated series.

Rebels begins in 5 BBY. The latest season is 2 BBY. The original trilogy begins two years later at what's called 0 BBY.

This exclusive "Fett Fact Check" is our own repository of what we learn, when we learn it. We're both logging and analyzing Boba Fett-specific confirmations and rumors -- each with date and original attribution. Below are our findings, sorted from newest to oldest:

    During a Star Wars Rebels press conference in Los Angeles today, Dave Filoni is asked about Boba Fett, who confirms that the bounty hunter is not in the upcoming second season of the show. We believe this event was separate from another one we can confirm that same day: an interview between fans and Dave Filoni on Periscope, he was asked if Boba Fett will appear. "Boba Fett? You know, always a possibility but so far, no, no Boba Fett." We shared a saved copy of the Periscope on Facebook.

    Photos circulate of Boba Fett included on Hasbro "Star Wars Rebels" packaging.
