But imagine seeing him put on the iconic armour for the first time. Like when Vader got into the suit.

As long as it happens real early on in the movie, that would be okay.
I would really hate to see him put on the armor on at the end of the movie and than have the credits start.

Yeah within the first hour of the movie would be best.

If it's the start of his career, that would be conducive toward explaining why he's wearing the armor despite being "incognito" as a member of the gang, so to speak. Fett is ten years old when Jango dies, so it's probably at least seven or eight years before the film would take place, and even if he is taking bounties at a younger age, I doubt he'd have acquired the reputation that he has twenty-six years later. The distance in time from Jango's death would probably disassociate the armor from Jango's reputation by that time.

A merc wearing Mandalorian armor probably wouldn't be so out of place to disallow Fett that if he's infiltrating a gang to collect bounties. In fact, it's probably more likely that the armor is more heavily associated with mercenaries in general than with bounty hunters specifically with the Death Watch in the Clone Wars, and possibly afterward, as well as the Mandalorian Protectors.

If they did a Fett movie that's more or less a vigilante genre, ie. him taking down badguys (real badguys not just enemies of the Empire), that could be interesting. I do enjoy a good vigilante movie. That would be better than a heist flick. I can't see Boba Fett robbing a bank. One good question would be whether they stick with his iconic lack of lines or decide to give him dialog. Would be a pretty strange film if he only said a dozen words. Laughing

See, this puzzles me. Fett's a cool character, don't get me wrong, but as cool as Vader? I simply never felt the adoration a lot of fan apparently have for him. Hmm.

Yeah, but a bank robbery? For a live action film starring Fett? Seems like an awful waste, in my opinion.


What sort of story would you expect a film starring Boba Fett to have? One in which the entire galaxy is imperiled? The character is a bounty hunter.


That's what Jedi and Han are for! I was thinking something more along the lines of Fett hunting a person. A criminal or, I don't know, a scientist, then having Bossk turn up and have them follow the same guy, then perhaps have them team up and such. But, really, I was thinking something like Blood Ties.

When some people wanted to make a film based on the Halo games, they viewed that as a problem, and to fix it they were going to make it more ensemble. To not have the Master Chief, another character noted for not saying much, as the centre of attention.

However, I would point out a series of films that do just that. Take a character that doesn't say much, and have him the centre of the film: the Bourne films.

Don't forget that Boba Fett is rumored to be the one main character to appear more than once in the live action series. If the live action ever happens.

Good point. If Boba does make it on the big screen, it will likely be connected to the show. Maybe like The Clone Wars movie.

I would prefer they continue making Boba silent. Personally, I think his lack of words makes his character that much more interesting. This could be a good artistic challenge, conveying his emotions in ways other words. Think about R2-D2, Mr. Bean or WALL-E.

However, seeing as this would be GL's version, I wouldn't expect him to stay silent. Sad They didn't go that route in The Clone Wars.

I would be fully on board with a Boba film made like a Sergio Leone western Very Happy

Lots of close up shots and not just the right amount of dialog.
