The Guide of Boba Fett isn’t nice. It’s not the worst factor to return from Disney-era Star Wars, but it surely definitely isn’t one of the best both, and it highlights a bunch of issues followers have with the Home of Mouse’s dealing with of the license. Boba Fett was an attention-grabbing character as a result of he had a cool design and we didn’t know a lot about him. Within the new Disney Plus sequence, we get to know all the pieces about him — and seems, it’s fairly boring.
How Star Wars 1313 appeared like a greater Boba Fett story
Disney already gave us an excellent cool, stoic bounty hunter within the type of Din Djarin, a.ok.a. The Mandalorian, so it clearly needed to go a unique route with Boba Fett. And contemplating Boba’s character wasn’t precisely well-established, I’d be positive with a unique being taken, if that route was extra attention-grabbing than what I’d already conjured up in my creativeness. As a substitute, we be taught that immediately after Return of the Jedi, Boba’s Joe Rogan-looking ass spent most of his time attempting to persuade ambivalent aliens to respect him.
However, leaked Star Wars 1313 gameplay footage has surfaced as we speak, providing our first take a look at what we might have had with the canceled motion sport. Boba Fett is the lead character right here, too, however somewhat than the weirdly altruistic undemocratically elected chief we’re proven in The Guide of Boba Fett, he’s as a substitute doing bounty hunter-y issues. Y’know, as a bounty hunter ought to do.
Watch the footage under:
Within the footage we see Boba exploring new worlds, chasing down bounties, and indulging in some Uncharted-esque motion setpieces. In The Guide of Boba Fett, we see Boba blast his approach out of the Sarlacc Pit with relative ease, grow to be oddly enamored along with his Tusken captors, and stroll round Tatooine with nobody notably bothered by his presence. I get that it’s imagined to be the story of Boba incomes respect, however we’re 5 episodes right into a seven-episode run and he’s nonetheless principally meandered round Tatooine being reasonably diplomatic. It hasn’t precisely made for a rollercoaster experience.
Sadly, very similar to Rise of Skywalker canonically ruined Luke and Anakin’s story, The Guide of Boba Fett ensures that this as soon as mysterious character will now all the time be this unhappy bounty hunter attempting to persuade Mos Espa’s bored residents to like him. Which means the chance to make one thing like Star Wars 1313 about Fett has been and gone, and we’ll by no means get the chance once more to determine a canon for Fett that’s extra attention-grabbing than him instructing Tuskens to experience a speeder like a Bantha.
It’s been confirmed that EA is working on three Star Wars games currently, which embody the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order sequel, a brand new sport from Apex Legends and Titanfall creator Respawn, and a technique title. As such, it looks like the ship has firmly sailed on Star Wars 1313, and Boba Fett’s place as a mysterious and (principally) faceless bounty hunter will stay spoiled. Every part Disney has produced up to now has been a part of its newly established Star Wars canon, so it’s unlikely we’ll see 1313 make a comeback and Fett’s story shift from a tragic man attempting to get folks to love him, to the person of thriller he as soon as was.
