There are tons of prequel haters out there and with that, some story arcs they would prefer to be changed. To be honest, the prequels weren’t THAT bad but one of the rumors that popped up over the last few months was a change to Boba Fett’s origin. Many rumors spread that Lucasfilm was going to change his origin through one of the standalone films. We know that isn’t going to happen as Lucasfilm has confirmed that only the movies and the Clone Wars series was canon at this point, so it doesn’t make much sense for the Boba story arc to be switched. To put the silly rumor to rest, Pablo Hidalgo makes some statements about these rumors;
“Spoiler: Boba is a clone of Jango Fett. It turns up in one of the movies.”
“There was this whole thing where he was a legitimate character with a developed back story and complex motivation that showed up on this show called Clone Wars. It was pretty neat. The guy who invented the character came up with it, which was a nice touch. I think it’s on Netflix.”
“Also – get this – there’s a version of The Empire Strikes Back (“Episode V” some call it) where they went to the trouble to make Boba Fett’s voice the same voice as the character who played his father. That was one of several clues woven into the movies that strongly suggest the movies released from 1999-2005 take place in the same universe, and if you think about it, are sort of the same story as the ones that came out earlier. It’s pretty crazy. They’re connected. Anyway, this version of it can be found on DVD and Blu-ray where such things are sold.”
“Anyway, these sorts of clues are hidden all throughout the movies. The opening crawls are actually numbers if you look at it (I = 1, II= 2/… V = 5, VI = 6). if you look at it the right way, it hints that this whole thing is meant to tie together.”
“You know, there was a post not a month ago that said what were the immovable objects in the Star Wars canon. The internet records such things.”
“Obviously I got nothing against **** (cheers!) It’s just the rebooted Fett rumor is so transparently coming from someone (not ****, in case there’s any confusion) who still has an axe to grind against the prequels. That’s where all these retcon prequel rumors come from. Don’t give ‘em any weight.”
So remember guys, if Lucasfilm doesn’t confirm it, it’s probably not true. Boba Fett being a clone isn’t that terrible.
