While he only has only four lines of dialogue and you never see his face, Boba Fett has gone on to become one of the most popular characters in Star Wars lore. But, it turns out his iconic design was actually just taken from a rejected sketch for Darth Vader. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which checks out your favorite bounty hunter with Boba Fett!

Now in the back half of 2015, we have officially entered the Star Wars-dominated portion of the year as we prepare for the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The franchise and its canon encompasses a vast universe filled with planets both peaceful and dangerous, and like the canon itself, it can sometimes be hard to keep track of all of those places. A new interactive map lets you explore that galaxy far, far away to prepare for the release of The Force Awakens.
We’ve heard rumors for about a year now about Boba Fett’s involvement in an upcoming Star Wars anthology film. The first, Star Wars: Rogue One, centers on a group of smugglers, while reports have suggested that either Josh Trank’s abandoned spinoff would be the Boba Fett movie, or that the notorious bounty hunter would appear in the young Han Solo film. We still don’t officially know if or when we’ll see Boba Fett again, but this fan trailer makes a good case for giving the character his own spinoff.
ScreenCrush’s WookieeLeaks is a weekly roundup of everything 'Star Wars'! From The Force Awakens, to the upcoming spinoffs and the TV shows, if it pertains to that long ago, far away galaxy, we’re covering it here, bringing you our expert analysis...
There were a lot of exciting toys announced yesterday during the epic 18-hour Star Wars Force Friday reveals, but none as exciting as the BB-8 toy from Sphero. We’ve been gushing about BB-8 since Star Wars Celebration and counting down the days until we could own one. And now that the day is here, it is perhaps even more fun than we imagined.
I arrive at just before 7:00 p.m. and Paul is already in line. Well, technically he’s not in line. Technically he’s just sorta hanging out in front of Target, minding his own business. He’s not lining up for Force Friday, no sir. He wouldn’t do such a thing, especially since management came out and made it very clear to everyone that there would be no lines until 8:00 p.m., asking the early arrivals to disperse disperse. Paul’s just another customer. Ignore his Ewok shirt. Ignore his fiancee’s Darth Vader-themed outfit. This is not the line you’re looking for.
He was almost the bad guy in Star Trek Into Darkness, now he seems poised to definitely be the bad guy in Star Wars: Episode VIII.
They’ve just wrapped up a massive Global Unboxing Event for #ForceFriday, the grand unveiling of the new toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. And looking through the acton figures that were unveiled, there are some really impressive likenesses. The little Finn, for example, really looks like John Boyega. And then are a few that don’t. The action figure version of Rey could be Daisy Ridley. But if you put it in front of me with no context (and no awesome BB-8 accessory), I’d probably be a little lost. I might guess it’s a Natalie Portman figure from Revenge of the Sith.
With the much-hyped “Force Friday” finally upon us, the steady trickle of Star Wars news has become a genuine deluge. But if you’re able to pull yourself away from live toy unboxing videos and that kind of amazing new BB-8 toy, there’s some new Star Wars: The Force Awakens art for you to look at. You know, just in case there isn’t enough Star Wars in your life at the moment.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t even out yet and we already know that everyone in the world is going to want their own BB-8. And the market will surely respond – expect to see countless toy versions of that adorable rolling droid everywhere you look in the coming months. However, there is only one BB-8 toy that can be controlled by your mobile device and recognizes your voice and develops an ongoing personality as you play with it. Yes, Sphero’s BB-8 looks like the droid to beat.
