If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ve probably heard of Boba Fett. He’s one of the most popular characters in the franchise, known for his distinctive armor and skilled bounty hunting.
But which Star Wars movie was Boba Fett in? Let’s take a closer look.
The Empire Strikes Back
Boba Fett first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back, which was released in 1980. He played a minor role as a bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader to capture Han Solo.
In the movie, he wears his iconic Mandalorian armor and carries a jetpack and blaster rifle. Although he only has a few lines of dialogue, Boba Fett quickly became a fan favorite.
Trivia: Did you know that Boba Fett was originally intended to have a much smaller role in The Empire Strikes Back? However, his popularity with fans led to him being featured more prominently in later movies.
Return of the Jedi
Boba Fett also appears in Return of the Jedi, which was released in 1983. In this movie, he is working for Jabba the Hutt and is present when Luke Skywalker comes to rescue Han Solo. During the ensuing battle, Boba Fett falls into the Sarlacc pit and is presumed dead.
Trivia: Fans have long debated whether or not Boba Fett survived his encounter with the Sarlacc pit. In recent years, it has been revealed that he did survive and will be featured in an upcoming Disney+ series called The Book of Boba Fett.
Attack of the Clones
While not technically a Star Wars movie that features Boba Fett as we know him, Attack of the Clones did introduce us to his father, Jango Fett. Jango is a bounty hunter who is hired by Count Dooku to create an army of clones for the Separatist cause. He is also the template for the clone troopers that make up the Grand Army of the Republic.
During the course of the movie, we see Jango and his son Boba together on several occasions. Boba is portrayed as a young boy who idolizes his father and helps him with his work. At one point, Jango is killed in battle, leaving Boba alone.
Trivia: Did you know that the actor who played young Boba Fett in Attack of the Clones, Daniel Logan, also voiced the character in later Star Wars projects?
So there you have it – Boba Fett appears in both The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, and his father Jango appears in Attack of the Clones. With his unique appearance and mysterious backstory, it’s no wonder that Boba Fett has become such an iconic character in the Star Wars universe.
