Star Wars: Clone Wars Enter Boba Fett

Boba Fett!

Have you ever wondered what happened to the little boy in Attack of the Clones that will turn him into the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy?  We may get some answers when Boba Fett makes an appearance on The Clone Wars!

“How does he become that guy?  Much like George [Lucas] did with Darth Vader, but Boba's path is already set kind of in a much more direct way than young Anakin, because he saw his father die firsthand at that very early age”  Dave Filoni said in an interview at Wonder Con.

This may address Boba’s dislike of the Jedi and why he would have no problems taking jobs hunting them but it does not answer some of the other questions.

  • Who trained Boba Fett?
  • Where did he get the cold, detached business attitude from?

Enter Aurra Sing…

If you jumped no worries I did too.  Aurra Sing will be Boba Fetts mentor!

This makes so much sense.  Which other bounty hunter in the galaxy who is better than Boba Fett other than his mentor Aurra Sing.

She will be a motherly figure for him.  Taking in the child, training him in her ways…

  • very clear intentions on what it is that one wants
  • Not bound by emotions.
  • Where the job is just really about money, and power.

Boba Fett will appear in the episode Death Trap which airs April 23 and in the two-part finale R2 Come Home and Lethal Trackdown.

Weekend Craft: Drawing Aurra Sing

drawing-aura-sing-clone-warsAurra Sing is one of the coolest Bounty Hunters in the Star Wars Universe.  Now we can draw her with six easy steps.

Star Wars illustrator Jessica Hickman explains with these easy-to-follow steps how to draw the bounty hunter Aurra Sing from The Clone Wars animated TV series.  (Star Wars)

Aurra Sing is the closest thing Star Wars has to an imortal with her fathers origins being unkown.  She was taken in as a young child and trained as a Jedi padawan.

At the age of nine she was kidnapped by pirates and tricked to blame the Jedi for her situation.  She was then sold to the Hutts and Received training as an assassin.

She took her collective training becoming a bounty hunter and her anger toward the Jedi to add the title of Jedi hunter.

I can't wait to see her involvement in the second season of Clone Wars.

Meet The Bounty Hunters

Star Wars Clone Wars season two is the Rise of the Bounty Hunters so who can we look forward to meet.  The trailer below gives us a look at some.

Featured in the trailer.

Cad Bane

Cad-bane

We met him at the end of season two.  After the death of Jango Fett, Bane became the most feared hunter.  He will be the main bounty hunter in this season.

Aurra Singaurra-sing

My personal favorite and in my book was always the most deadly bounty hunter out there.  This is due in part to her Jedi training in use of the force, her training as an Anzati assassin and partially because of her heritage.

Cato Parasitti

Cato-parasittiA shape-changing lethal assassin willing to work for anyone who could afford her astronomical fee.

BosskBossk

We know him best from his appearance in Empire Strikes Back.  A Trandoshan which is probably all needed to be known since the species are best known as pirates, slavers, and bounty hunters.  Bossk is well known for his love of hunting Wookies.

Others I hope to see:

Durge

DurgeWe get to see him in action on the animated clone wars shorts.  He is particularly formidable as a bounty hunter due to his Gen'Dai heritage and enhanced battle armor.  He has a fondness for hunting Mandalorians and was disappointed to have to settle with Jango Fetts clones.  Though that did not stop him from killing many clones.  I hope he makes an appearance in this season.

Review: Clone Wars 122 Hostage Crisis

Review of:  Star Wars: Clone Wars 122  Hostage Crisis Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Star Wars: The Clone Wars Overall Rating: 7

Aurra_SingTo free crime lord Ziro the Hutt, bounty hunters seize control of the Senate Building and take hostages -- completely unaware that Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker is still inside.

This was a good episode of Clone Wars.  We get to see two bounty hunters in action Cad Bane & Aurra Sing.  I’m really curious how much of Aurra’s story line we will get to see as the show progresses.

As a big fan of Star Wars it really pains me to say this but this episode was not much of a season finally.  It lacked any kind of fanfare one might expect nor was there any kind of cliffhanger ending either.  Saying that I must remember that this is a show made for children and episodes like this one really remind me that I’m not even considered for their target audience.  I guess I’ll have to wait for the live action show to get great Star Wars fun.
