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.

Randal Graves and the Empire Top 100

randaltop100 Randal Graves from Kevin Smith’s brilliant film Clerks has is number 92 on Empire’s Top 100 Greatest Movie Characters.

Why He's On The List: Randal is the voice of countless generations - anyone who's had a shitty customer service job in their early twenties will understand his attitude, wishing they could have articulated their frustration with his artful profanity and supreme disregard for, well, anything. But the key to Randal is that he doesn't necessarily hate his job, it's just that he remembers not to care (Empire).

Also on the List:

It is great to see how many Speculative Fiction characters make the list, especially in the top 10.  It makes me wonder if we should make our own list.
