Dave Filoni on the Possibility of Seeing Boba Fett Post-Sarlacc

Published (updated ) • Written by • Categorized in Film & TV

At the red carpet premiere for “The Mandalorian,” Dave Filoni was asked by Entertainment Tonight reporter Ash Crossan about the possibility of Boba Fett surviving the Sarlacc.

Note how he hints at a future possibility, in effect denying the belief some fans have that Fett [SPOILER ALERT] could be in a dimly lit room full of Mandalorians in the Disney+ show. (He’s not.)

In the current canon, Boba Fett is neither dead nor alive since falling into the pit. In legends, he escaped many different ways in books and comics since 1984 (Marvel Star Wars #81: “Jawas of Doom”, Dark Empire #3 including “the Sarlacc found me somewhat indigestible,” “Twin Engines of Destruction including “Sarlacc food,” “A Barve Like That”, “Payback”, “The Mandalorian Armor” trilogy, etc.).

“The Mandalorian” takes place just five years after “Return of the Jedi.”

    That’s doesn’t mean the character in the dark lit room wasn’t Fett!!!!

    It’s prolly just the Easter egg hinting at his eventual return!

    1. It’s just not the character. That Mando appears in the third episode, too, and it’s not Boba. There are many other Mandalorians in “The Mandalorian,” some with similar armor. That’s the wink-and-a-nod to Boba so far.

    Why not? These writers are using comics and Canon to fill in the gaps of the story to keep this series a true star wars story. I for one look forward to it.

    They should bring back Jango Fett in Darth Maul form. Just a head on a cybernetic body. Do it, no testicular fortitude
