Following Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm last week, speculation has been running rampant ever since as to which of the actors from the original Star Wars trilogy may reprise their roles in 2015's Episode VII. We've already heard from a few of the core cast members, but Unleash The Fanboy managed to catch up with Jeremy Bullock (a.k.a. Boba Fett) to ask him whether or not he would be interested in making a return as the iconic bounty hunter. "It would be lovely to see Boba Fett back!" he told the site. "The technology now exists to make his jet pack even more realistic and exciting. I'm sure if Boba Fett were to return they would go with someone younger, but I’m still fit and can jump around. I’d love to be involved in some way, maybe a cameo as an ageing Bounty Hunter in the corner somewhere." To be honest, this makes sense, especially when the character he played was hidden behind a mask in ALL of his appearances and Bulloch didn't actually even voice Fett. Regardless, you can read more of his comments on the Disney news and planned follow-up by clicking on the link below.

he should make a cameo, that would be a nice touch. and boba fett needs to escape the sarlac. that would make a great ending scene for the first film.

If they do, Please go back to the original look of the salac. A pit in the ground with teeth is so much more bad-ass then that beak crap
Tony93 - 11/6/2012, 10:22 AM
sweeet
RorMachine - 11/6/2012, 10:23 AM
I met this guy at a Star Wars convention in Dublin, really cool and chatty. Whether he returns or not Fett HAS to..I mean that's like...making another Star Wars without Bobba Fett!
NerdyGeek - 11/6/2012, 10:24 AM
Don't know how they can bring him back after he got eaten by a Sand Vagina..
DarthTesla - 11/6/2012, 10:25 AM
[frick] yeah, would be epic to see old Boba, chilling on Mandalore, his people working on Bes'kar ships/armor.
bazinga85 - 11/6/2012, 10:26 AM
They should definitely include Boba Fett, but yes, recast him. Hopefully more bounty hunters will be involved in the new trilogy, instead of pointless battle droids.
DioFoRio - 11/6/2012, 10:28 AM
Fett needs to stay dead.
novaprime - 11/6/2012, 10:29 AM
How About A BoBa Fet, Solo Movieee!!!! Itll make Tons of Money!!!!!!
GrayFox1025 - 11/6/2012, 10:29 AM
I'm pretty sure Jeremy Bulloch did voice Boba in the Original Empire Strikes Back, only to be dubbed over by Temuera Morrison's voice for the DVD special edition

@Nerdy Geek - In the Expanded Universe Boba was rescued by Dengar and eventually rose to the ranks of Mandalore. I hope he comes back because he went out like a BITCH in Return of the Jedi
DioFoRio - 11/6/2012, 10:29 AM
if anything they should do a series of fet movies in the past of his bounty hunting missions and have the last flick with him being sent to deal with a troublesome jedi kid
MrPeanut - 11/6/2012, 10:30 AM
He's the last Fett. He has to escape the sarlac and come back! In the book Tales Of The Bounty Hunters, he escapes and has amnesia, realizing years later his desire to once again pursue Han Solo.
DarthTesla - 11/6/2012, 10:33 AM
And also bring in Mirta. That would be badass.
StarkAnthony - 11/6/2012, 10:34 AM
Jeremy Bulloch cameo - sounds great. Boba Fett back at all - no. As far as the movies are concerned he died in the Sarlaac. If they just don't show him or say he's dead he can just live on in the EU like he has for years.
l0rdleg0las - 11/6/2012, 10:34 AM
I always was down on Fett and never understood the love he got. He seems like this badass and looks cool but then goes out like a punk without really doing much.
RorMachine - 11/6/2012, 10:34 AM
He did escape the Sarlacc in the follow up novels, but obviously they won't be canon with these new movies. Still, it was one of the most ridiculous ways for such a great character to go out so I hope they do bring him back somehow.
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/6/2012, 10:46 AM
It would fit well especially if they followed even a trace of the books. Seeing him train one of the Solo twins on screen to be badass would be baller
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/6/2012, 10:47 AM
Especially if they based the next trilogy losely on the series that sees Jacen go apeshit on the galaxy
jimpinto24 - 11/6/2012, 10:47 AM
Jeremy Bulloch coming back as Boba Fett would be cool. Boba Fett was one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars movies.
marantaz - 11/6/2012, 10:48 AM
The only people I want to see return are Han, Luke and Leia, and really, I'd be happy with just Han, living in a shack on some desolate planet, hiding from a newly reformed Empire, sleeping on a Wookie rug. (jk) Disney knows what it's doing. SW isn't supposed to be anything but popcorn... regardless of what the nerds think.
Seriously, Han, Luke, Leia and Darth are the only people in SW most have any interest in... Lucas made the rest worthless and weak, a real shame, or created new characters that were simply embarassing.
DarthTesla - 11/6/2012, 10:49 AM
@IDKwhattochoose- Totally. I freaking loved the scenes (from the LotF books) where Jaina is on Mandalore, training with Mirta, Boba and Goran. Bad ass.
SKOne - 11/6/2012, 10:51 AM
As far as I know, they were planning a Boba Fett movie for years before the Bounty Hunter game and the Prequel Trilogy came out.
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 11/6/2012, 11:00 AM
"BACK FROM THE DEAD, @$$HOLES!!"



;P
maxleresistant - 11/6/2012, 11:03 AM
there is so much awesome things to do with the franchise.
Boys, we're in for a treat
DevilHulk666 - 11/6/2012, 11:08 AM
I thought saalac spat him out ,Jawas saw the burning wreakage of Jabbas palace and picked up Fett
TheAmazingSpidey63 - 11/6/2012, 11:15 AM
Seriously though, to bring back Boba back will be [frick]ing awesome. He was (and still is) my only favorite Star Wars character in the entire trilogy. A bad@$$ character, nonetheless. So, yes. Pretty please, Disney, bring back Boba Fett. :)

I think if you have him, which don't get me wrong, I'm no fan of the Prequels, but isn't he just another clone played by Temuera Morrison, which is another reason I hate the idea of all the 501st being just him....But I digress. Boba has to be somewhat digested, which is the only way it would work.

On another note, I think if they don't do any previous books or stories out there, you absolutely have to make Jedi's go bad. All of them save for Luke or his descendants. Or maybe it's his son or daughter that take up the mantle of Vader.
FEJ - 11/6/2012, 11:26 AM
I would like to see him fight a long battle. Not just 2 minutes.
Ha1frican - 11/6/2012, 11:31 AM
I wanna see more Mandalorians in general
Humby - 11/6/2012, 11:33 AM
As cool as it would be to see Boba Fett return, it would come off a little tiresome, I think. I would rather they give him his own offshoot film once they finish this trilogy. Regardless, I'm all for a Jeremy Bulloch cameo.

I think this film should focus on Luke attempting to rebuild the Jedi order. Assuming 25-30 years have passed after ROTJ, he may have established a small band of Jedi (including his family) already. I would love to see the Imperial Remnant (because after 25-30 years they should finally be reduced to remnant) attempt to bolster Luke's cause by allying with some sort of dark jedi (although not sith) who has some connection to the events of the prequels or originals.
sexfoodcomics - 11/6/2012, 11:52 AM
The real Fett needs to come back. Non of this jango crap and boba as a little annoying kid.
comicle199 - 11/6/2012, 12:15 PM
no matter weather we get boba or some more cool mandalorian armoured characters i think we can all agree that a star wars without bounty hunters would be a star wars not worth watching
comicle199 - 11/6/2012, 12:18 PM
personal opinion though dont brink back boba however bossk is another story
plus i would love to see a madalorian sith
third3ye - 11/6/2012, 12:19 PM
If they found a way to squeeze in Boba's dad in the prequels simply to satisfy the geek fans, you better believe they'll find a way to force our famous Mandalorian into the next trilogy.
gaikinger - 11/6/2012, 12:20 PM
Jason Wingreen was thr original voice of Boba Fett. I believe whoever helms these new movies will know after all that's been done so far, what works and what doesn't. If you really want to fill the seats with he old school fans....you gotta have Boba.
SpideyDude - 11/6/2012, 12:22 PM
That was me who spoke to him for UnleashTheFanboy.com

would just like to add that he was a really nice guy and was happy to talk about it
Durf - 11/6/2012, 12:34 PM
YES! Boba is one of my favorites! Have him crawl out of the Sarlaac and do some more huntin'! Or just give him his own movie... and another bounty hunter game.

@Ha1frican and @Nomis: Hell [frick]ing yes we need more Mandalorians!
mrHJK - 11/6/2012, 12:54 PM
Temuera Morrison would definitely do the voice and act physically if he had to remove his helmet.
vondoom29 - 11/6/2012, 1:10 PM
i thought fett died in rotj
