A “SUPER SOLDIER” IS BORN The character of Boba Fett, a bounty hunter of few words, came to life for the first time in the Star Wars universe as a “super soldier” concept. A masked figure in all-white armor, designed by Joe Johnston and Ralph McQuarrie. The super soldier was eventually discarded, but George Lucas had another character idea up his sleeve: a bounty hunter. The white armor was painted and peeled, a poncho was hung over his shoulder… After the design was adjusted and tested, Boba Fett made her first appearance, although it was not on a screen. Fans were first able to see the legendary bounty hunter at the 1978 San Anselmo Fair parade. Months later, he made his first television appearance as an animated character in “The Star Wars Holiday Special.” His big-screen debut finally came with the 1980 premiere of STAR WARS: EPISODE V – THE EMPIRE CONTRAATACA.DE SUCH A FATHER, SUCH A SON Boba’s origins are tied to Jango Fett, a skilled warrior and bounty hunter by trade hired by Count Dooku to serve as a genetic template for the clone army.

Some time after his father’s death at the hands of Jedi Master Mace Windu, he hid among the ranks of the young cadets in a failed attempt to take revenge on him.

Boba donned her father’s Mandalorian armor and gradually began to make a name for herself.

Crimson Dawn had snatched Jabba’s prize and the crime lord put a price on Boba’s head in retaliation.
