The baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy wants to return to Star Wars — Boba Fett!
With the news that Disney has acquired Star Wars from Lucasfilm, we are hearing from just about everybody that was associated with the past movies.
Jabba the Hut let his feelings be known as well as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, a Lucas biographer and a Star Wars novelist.
Now the actor that was swallowed up by the Sarlaac Pit in Return of the Jedi, Jeremy Bulloch, comments on the recent Star Wars news that sees a trilogy begin anew in 2015.
While not considered canon (technically), Boba Fett did escape the Sarlaac Pitt in the Thrawn Trilogy as the beast below could not digest Boba Fett due to his armor (correct me if I am wrong).
“It would be lovely to see Boba Fett back!” Bulloch tells UnleashTheFanboy. “The technology now exists to make his jet pack even more realistic and exciting.”
Bulloch admits that the new Star Wars movie might go with someone younger for the iconic role, but says he would be up for it he got the call — or even a cameo.
“Realistically I’m sure if Boba Fett were to return they would go with someone younger, but I’m still fit and can jump around. I’d love to be involved in some way, maybe a cameo as an ageing Bounty Hunter in the corner somewhere.”
