Boba Fett movie trailer: Fan-made look at Star Wars spinoff
Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters in December, and the series of standalone companion Star Wars: Anthology films are rolling along as well: Rogue One has a plot and a cast photo; the still-unnamed Han Solo movie has directors. And while the status of a Boba Fett feature is a little murkier — director Josh Trank parted ways with Disney earlier this summer — Eric Demeusy has some ideas about what it could possibly look like.
Demeusy, a director and animator, recently posted a minute-long teaser on his Vimeo account for what his version of a Boba Fett solo movie. The video seems modeled after the original teaser for The Force Awakens: voiceover narration, shots of a lone wanderer in a desert, and just enough expositiion to remind viewers of where they were and hint at what’s next. In this case, the fearsome bounty hunter was last seen in Return of the Jedi falling into the Sarlacc Pit of Tatooine, so the video opens with a shot of said pit and voiceover of C-3PO’s explanation from Jedi. Footprints lead us to Fett, wandering through the sand and calling his sleek starship Slave I for a long-awaited escape.
Ever since his debut in The Empire Strikes Back, the mysterious Fett has been a fan favorite, and many writers and artists have depicted his possible escape from the Sarlacc. Now that Disney has wiped the Expanded Universe from canon status, however, any continuation of Fett’s story would have to retell the story of his extrication. Here’s hoping it takes a note from Demeusy and includes Slave I, still the coolest-looking starship in the galaxy.
