Boba Fett Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before
Fans know the enigmatic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett very well, from his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back (and later in the Special Edition of A New Hope), to his apparent demise in the Sarlacc Pit in Return of The Jedi. Oh, and that time he was a tiny boy and his dad got cloned and then he held his Dad’s head or whatever.
Anyway, the important takeaway here is this: that wasn’t Boba Fett’s appearance, not by a long shot. Empire Strikes Back premiered in 1980, but the Mandalorian first appeared back on September 24, 1978… As a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair!
