Boba Fett is a character in the Star Wars fictional universe. A bounty hunter hired by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon, he is a major villain in Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980). Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) establishes Boba Fett's back story as a clone of Jango Fett, a bounty hunter who raises Boba as a son. The Star Wars Expanded Universe expands on Fett's origins and career as a bounty hunter. Fett's air of danger and mystery have created a cult following for the character, who has been merchandised across multiple media. Fett might be part of the live-action Star Wars series under development.[2]

Promotions and early depictions

The Fett Man first appeared at the September 24, 1978, San Anselmo Country Fair parade.[3] The character appeared on television several weeks later, animated by Nelvana Studios for The Star Wars Holiday Special (1978) as a mysterious figure who betrays Luke Skywalker (voiced by Mark Hamill), Chewbacca, C-3PO (voiced by Anthony Daniels), and R2-D2, after being revealed to be Darth Vader's right-hand man.[3][4] After his image and identity were revealed in The Star Wars Holiday Special, costumed Fett characters appeared in shopping malls and special events, putting up "Wanted" posters of the character to distinguish him from the franchise's Imperial characters.[5] The character also appears in Marvel Comics' Star Wars newspaper strip.[4]
