According to the news collected by io9, someone very special to Star Wars fans everywhere may be a part of the new Star Wars live-action television series. I'll give you a hint: Look at the picture above.
Karen Traviss, who has written many Star Wars novels, was working on a Boba Fett novel, which many were extremely excited for. Back in December, the novel was cancelled, not by Karen, but by Lucas, with no explanation. There is now an actual reason for why this book has gone kaput, explained by Karen herself:
Yes, the Boba Fett novel was canceled by the publisher because of potential canon clashes with the upcoming TV series, as you have already heard from other sources. No, I really don't have a clue what those clashes might be. Sorry.
So, no, it's not for sure that Boba will be a part of this show 100%, but come on, what else could conflict with the show? The coolest bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe (we're not talkin Dengar here... just Boba) got treated like garbage in the films. He deserves a spot on the show just to show how bad-ass he is.
The story of this show is being kept under wraps. Many people speculate that is takes place between Episode III and A New Hope, so those lovable scamps from the original trilogy, that you've come to know and love, may not be in it. ( Teenage Han sneaking out in his dad's Millennium Falcon, to get drunk in the Degobah System won't be an episode then?) But I still think Boba has a shot! Here's what Lucas had to say about what this show may contain.
We'll see when it happens I guess.
It's [a] lot more talky. It's more of what I would call a soap opera with a bunch of personal dramas in it. It's not really based on action-adventure films from the '30s - it's actually more based on film noir movies from the '40s!"
What do you guys hope to get out of this show? More Dengar? What part, if any, could Boba play in this series?
