Could We See Boba Fett in Star Wars: Rogue One?

By Tom Pritchard on at

There's still a lot we don't know about Rogue One, the upcoming Star Wars spin-off film, but thanks to the intrepid people at the Lego company it's rumoured that famed bounty hunter Boba Fett will appear in the film.

It's not much to go on, and it's far from real confirmation, but a promotional image at the Nuremberg Toy Fair includes an image of Fett's infamous ship above the words Rogue 1. There also appears to be a Lego version of Empire's Cloud City, which is also incredibly cool.

It's hardly an official thing (remember this?), but it's certainly a curious choice of placeholder image if Boba Fett is going to be absent. Surely the Death Star would have been a better choice? We all know that the planet-killing space station's plans are a key part of the film.

As anyone who knows about Jango Fett's past from the now non-canon expanded universe will know, the Slave 1 is the only one of its kind in the galaxy. That's because Jango felt it necessary to blow up the other 9 when he stole it. That's no longer the case thanks to Disney's infamous canon cull, but it does make it a little bit more unlikely that this happens to be a different ship from the same class. Plus, y'know, Boba Fett is awesome.
