At Star Wars Celebration 2017, Dave Filoni revealed the answer to a question that only Star Wars fans would be excited about learning. How Boba Fett got that dent in his helmet. The canceled seasons of The Clone Wars were going to explore the relationship between Cad Bane and Boba Fett. We would have learned that Bane had a rivalry with Jango Fett, but he never got to learn who the more skilled fighter was before Jango was killed in the Battle of Geonosis. His solution would be to take a young Boba Fett under his wing, help train him to be the skilled bounty hunter we all know, and then force his hand into a confrontation, so he could see who is truly the best. At Celebration, the unfinished clip of their showdown was revealed. Boba Fett is shown in his full set of armor, so I imagine that story arc would have involved him gathering the necessary pieces. Interestingly, that was also going to be part of the story presented in the cancelled video game Star Wars 1313. Why do these projects about Boba Fett and his armor keep getting canceled? Anyway. Fett is presented as somewhat of a hero here. He tells Cad Bane that no more innocent people will die and Bane chastises him for fighting for those in need. They face off against each other just like a western and both draw, shooting each other at the same time. The outcome is very ambiguous, mostly about Bane’s survival because obviously we know Fett is still around. But he did take a blaster bolt directly to the helmet which left a smoking crater and Dave Filoni announced that idea was all George’s. I find it very interesting that Boba Fett was presented as heroic here. We’re used to seeing him as a villain, but I’m curious about his future and how he’ll continue to be shown. Just because he’s an antagonist to Han Solo doesn’t necessarily make Fett evil. If the rumors of a bounty hunter team-up standalone film are true, I’ll be very intrigued to see if the team is shown to be heroic, anti-heroic, or what. Anti-heroic sounds most likely, something along the lines of Suicide Squad, except good. Anyway, what do you guys think of this clip and how do you think we’ll see Boba Fett in future content?
