The level of fandom surrounding Boba Fett always seemed a little disproportionate to what he actually does on screen. The costume certainly makes an impression, but the way The Empire Strikes Back seemed to be building him up made his unceremonious sendoff in Return of the Jedi feel so perplexing and anticlimactic. For decades, the only place to turn for more substantial Boba Fett stories was the Star Wars Expanded Universe - a series of novels, comics, and other tie-in merchandise that helped flesh out some of the unexplored corners of this galaxy. When Disney acquired Lucasfilm, however, it was decided that the EU was no longer canon. One of the consequences of that was Boba Fett's fate post-Return of the Jedi. Did he even survive the Sarlac Pit? Fortunately, season two of The Mandalorian would eventually provide fans with an answer. For the first time in live-action, they'd get a version of the character that attempted to live up to the legend. Topics include: how the Lucasfilm design team retooled a concept for "Super Stormtroopers" to create our favorite intergalactic bounty hunter, Boba Fett's actual first appearance, the much more ambitious plans George Lucas had for Fett in the original trilogy and why those were scaled back, Disney's controversial decision to wipe the Expanded Universe from canon, notable projects featuring Fett that never came to fruition, our thoughts on his inclusion in season two of The Mandalorian, how we feel about the upcoming Book of Boba Fett series, and more!

Some other topics include: - Growing up wanting to be an animator (and being self-taught) - Getting involved with Nelvana (known for Ewoks and Droids), as well as how George Lucas first heard about the studio through Cosmic Christmas - Inspirations for the short ranging from Heavy Metal magazine and Moebius to Clint Eastwood You have a week, as of this publishing, to help with Mr. Celestri’s Kickstarter and get that Boba Fett sketch for yourself: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johncelestri/john-the-animator-comicx For even more Lucasfilm animation stories, check out Skytalkers’ incredible 3-part deep dive about animation: https://skytalkers.com/2020/07/25/star-wars-animation-1978-2012/ It is always so appreciated if you can leave a 5-star review of the show right here on your favorite podcast app, or on Podchaser: podchaser.com/TalkingBay94 Transcripts of previous episodes are starting to become available over at talkingbay94.com, which I hope will serve as a resource.

She’s one of those people that paid like $9000 for a VCR back in 1981, and then bought videotapes that cost like $150 each.” “Uh, ancient cloning? Cool, we’ll pull that. But Boba Fett being super cool? Uh, well, Jon Favreau will pull that and put it on TV, rather than the fking movies.” “Jacen. With a ‘c’.
