BOBA FETT LIVES!
« on: July 17, 2014, 12:55:34 PM »
After years of Lucas saying that Boba Fett died.
Lucas backtracks and now says that he survived.
I once read that lucas himself said that if he'd knew that Fett was gonna be such a popular character. That he would have found a better way to KILL him off. Also. In the SE of ROTJ. They added the beak to the Sarlacc to catch Fett and they also added the "burping" once Fett got swallowed to make sure people knew that Fett died.
I guess since he dosen't own SW anymore. That he can change his mind and it is considered "canon"

It's all about the mighty dollar.
Wouldn't be the first time Lucas has changed his mind, but while making the SE. Lucas himself said. The fact that they added the beak and the burp was to let fans know that Fett died. We know he dosen't care about the EU and does whatever he can to distance himself from it. But at the end of the day. If he can change the fact that Greedo shot first in the SE. Than I guess he can change his mind back on the whole Fett thing.

C3po mentions in ROTJ ..... About the sarlaac. .......  Being slowly digested over 1000 years..... So highly possible in my book, that he might survive

I agree it's possible, but of years of Lucas defending the fact that Fett died is what I'm having a hardtime with. Lucas has had plenty of oppurtunity to say Fett lived.
Why now does he come out and says it's possible that he survived?

I think you think that Lucas holds Star Wars in the same regard that we do. Maybe back in the day he did, but not anymore. He doesn't care as long as he makes the rules.

Disney is making the plans now.. not Lucas..  I say bring him back.. I want to see him kick some arse.. Why not? can not hurt..

You're right. But still, it feels like Lucas just thought we were all *ssholes and he didn't really care what SW nerds like us thought of his decisions. If Lucas said Fett's dead for years and then flip-flopped, that just goes to show he could care less what we might feel about it.

Hey guys has anyone read the Tales of Jabbas Palace? Even though the EU has been thrown out it has a really good story about being stuck in one of the many side-stomaches of the Sarlacc, and hearing the screams and yells of other skiff guards in different parts of the Sarlacc as acid slowly burned them as tentalces inside its body holds them down.

In the story Fett eventually fires up the Jet pack and blows his way out.

I suggest reading it for Fett lovers.

I've read it, but Marvel did a similar story years before this.
Marvels version has Fett being spit out.  Fett gets amnesia from it. Eventually Fett and Han are on a Jawa Sandcrawler. Han tries to rescue Fett. Fett eventually remembers who he is and tries to fight Han.
Han escapes, but Fett is left on the Sandcrawler which plunges back into the Sarlacc where hes was considered dead again.

That's why the EU was a mess. 2 different versions of this scenerio.
