If they are going off of Boba dying in ROTJ then there is no point to include Daniel Logan. Oh yeah, they want to distance themselves from clones as wellSeems it's a little more solid news than it's a "possibility, we all new it would be the first spin off or stand alone but at least it's now been somewhat confirmed. It will be interesting to see who's cast, I don't see why Daniel Logan wouldn't be used for the part.
I believe the idea here is that it is Fett, in that the man seen in the OT (according to this treatment) had actually killed the original Jango clone and took on his name and armour.I can't see them killing off Fett and tossing someone else in the armor and helmet, wouldn't be a Fett spin off then.
What this suggests is that this "Man With No Name" Boba Fett would have to be more cunning, skilled and overall dangerous than the Jango clone to acquire the armour.What this suggests is that the armour is what makes him "Boba Fett" and not the actions, psychology or motivations of the character.
So any John Doe in a GFFA can put on the armour and become Boba Fett?
Quite frankly, that's an entirely suitable description of the Prequel Fetts.Quite frankly, it reeks of poorly written, cobbled together fan fiction.
If that's what people want, then you're not going to see a movie about Boba Fett - you're going to see a movie about a Faux Boba Fett.
Read my post again.??dude??, he acquired the armor cuz Jango's his frikken father!! If the galaxy after the events of ROTS doesn't know it's "Boba" , well ok that's sensible, cuz they're not watching movies...but I can't see this possibly making any sense otherwise. Boba's the only unaltered clone, the rest are aging 3x the rate...that's all there is to know there.

I agree, but IMO this is what gives teeth to this rumor -I never found boba fett that interesting. Whatever interest I had in him was squashed in episode 2.
Maybe they could focus on Boba Fett's son instead?That being said...as much as I dislike what the prequels gave us for a boba fett origin story, trying to dance away from it now is just as bad. The damages is done, they should just leave it alone. There's other stories in the SW to tell.
Hey guys was doing a google search on possible Fett stuff and came across the site and this thread and found it interesting. After reading over Fett's new history w/Jango and such it makes me wonder if they are going to keep it or since LucasFilm & Marvel are both owned by Disney now will they go back to the old Marvel backstory for Fett, that carried over into the Dark Horse era.I'm not a PT fan, and I don't find Boba Fett to be that interesting as a character. Before the PT, to me, what made Boba Fett interesting is that he was a mystery. Episode 2 not only ruined the mystery, but the story felt like a bad idea shoe horned into the PT. I'm still not sure why Jango Fett/Boba Fett needed to the template for the clones. In a galaxy full of people...it just so happened to be ...jango fett/boba fett? I get that he was a super mega cool awesome bounty hunter fighter guy, and that makes him the perfect soldier(I guess..?) but it felt like fan service. "Wait'll they see who the clones are made from!". That being said...as much as I dislike what the prequels gave us for a boba fett origin story, trying to dance away from it now is just as bad.

His name was Jaster Mereel (Origin created by Andy Mangels and character by George Lucas of course) He a enforcement officer on the planet Concord Dawn back during the Clone Wars era who killed his superior for some immoral act or such and he had to leave his home and joined up with the Mandalorians...
Previous to Mangels origin bits and pieces of his origin in the Marvel era of the early 80's told the story that Fett fought during the clone wars, and after it was over only 3 of the Mandalorian warriors came out of the conflict (STAR WARS issue#68 Written by David Michelinie. Illustrated by Gene Day and Thomas Palmer).
Whos other 2 names were Tobbi Dala and Fenn Shysa. The story is about Leia being attacked by local Slavers hunting random commoners of the planet and enslaving them for work and such. She lets the Mandalorian live, to find out it was Fenn Shysa, who like a friend Parma were part of the Mandalorian Protectors, a super-commando group sent to aid Palpatine in the Clone Wars in Firespray-class ships identical to Slave I. During the war, they were briefed on Leia and other enemies, but of 212 Protectors, only Fett, Fenn, and Tobbi Dala survived. ( the larger overview is found Here with a full retrospective found Here ).
Later in Dark Horse One shot "Twin Engines of Destruction"Writer(s):Andy Mangels
Jodo Kast pretends to be Fett (though he used a roughed up customized Tyderium shuttle) but ended with Fett killing cast after beating the ever-loving hell out of him and stripping the Mandalorian armor off of him. When he does this Fett starts asking who was he to Kast's beaten face, saying you were Shysa you weren't Dala (which were the other 2 survivors from the Marvel Star Wars #68 Story) so the author had done his homework. While it wasn't the greatest of origins when I wathced episode II and saw this Jango guy w/him being the clone mold... I scratched my head.
So here's to hoping Disney uses it's Marvel roots for his origin which was better in my opinion. Oh... and hello my name is Rezikai I'm a star wars fanatic.
As for his wife and daughter,... while it does contradict Leia's story in the Tales of Jabba's Palace novel which talks about Fett never having them... (it's in Leia's tale as shes trapped as a slave girl) I'm not going to have a cow over it, even then his backstory wasn't fleshed totally out.
The REAL gem of a read is in the same Tales of Jabba's Palace called... "A barve like that, the tale of Boba Fett". It tells the week-two week long struggle Fett has to escape the Sarlac, where he starts hearing the voice of a psychic inside the belly of the beast who died centuries earlier but his mind melded/meshed over the slow digestion period to merge into the skin/tissue of the sarlac.... he tells Fett jokes and tales of the Old Republic with a Jedi falling in but unable to escape.... Fett escapes of course... and well returns to the sarlac months later to repay the joke.
heh, yea I read that one to where Fett falls back into the Sarlac after he and Han fight it out on a Sandcrawler. Though Lucas later said most if not all the old Marvel Tales would not be canon after the Dark Horse era got up and running so I take it with a grain of salt... and the story was a little hokey.nice..are you a fan of Jawas of Doom?
I'm hoping this is a pre-ROTJ story since he died in the Pit of Carkoon ( now that the novels aren't canon anymore). I'd live to see how he became one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy and how he got "in" with the Huts.
