In the run-up to Boba Fett's first appearance in the new Clone Wars animated series, which begins Friday, April 23rd on Cartoon Network at 9pm EST and PST, a press release and two video clips were recently released.

StarWars.com press release:

It's easy enough for him to blend in; he is, after all, created from the same genetic blueprint as the rest of the clones -- that of bounty hunter Jango Fett. But though he may have DNA identical to the Republic heroes', he nonetheless sees himself as a unique individual -- with no affection for his genetic brethren.

"He's with the clones, but he's not one of them," says Logan. "He's special; that's how he sees it. And now he's alone. He had a relationship with Jango, like a father and son. None of the other clones had that connection; they're just soldiers, and now they're standing in his way.
