Boba’s Beginnings

He saw his bounty-hunting father get cloned and beheaded, and still, Boba Fett chose to fly in his father’s jetpack (though maybe not literally) and become a bounty hunter himself. Boba Fett’s rivalry with Obi-Wan Kenobi is addressed more in-depth in the animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Boba Fett’s time as an orphan and wannabe bounty hunter is not tackled in the films.

Boba has always expressed an obvious devotion to his father, first witness when Jedi master Obi-Wan visits the cloning facility on the water planet of Kamino. Boba expresses a strong suspicion of the Jedi and goes along with his father on almost every demand. And we’ll never forget the heartbreaking scene of Boba holding up his father’s decapitated head and helmet to his own in sadness for his father’s death.

But was there more than revenge on his mind when the child decided to pursue one of the most dangerous careers in the galaxy? In the original trilogy focused on Luke and Leia, Boba is already all grown up and shared very little dialogue. It seems like a show about Boba’s bounty hunting beginnings is desperately needed on Star Wars stories we want to see on Disney Plus for those who suspect the character has more to offer than background character flavor.
