News of a young Boba Fett making his appearance in The Clone Wars animated TV series continues to pop up across the 'Net, with this latest article coming to us courtesy of TV Guide Magazine.
The article, written by Michael Logan, is provided below:
"As the second season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars comes to a close, the whole damn galaxy is at war, but Jedi knights Anakin Skywalker and Mace Windu have a much smaller problem on their hands—12-year-old Boba Fett. The young character, who will grow up to become a hugely popular villain in Star Wars: Episode V—the Empire Strikes Back, is at the center of a trilogy of season-ending episodes. Part 1 airs April 23, with a doubleheader on April 30.
The plot has Boba seeking revenge against Mace for beheading his father, Jango—one of the big events in Episode II—Attack of the Clones. And the kid’s got a nefarious backup team, including Bossk, the lizard bounty hunter from Empire, and Aurra Sing, the chalk-white Jedi killer first seen in Episode I—The Phantom Menace.
Supervising director Dave Filoni says, “The fans are insane about Boba Fett and never got enough of him in the films. This is our chance to get inside the mind and heart of a child who’s trying to navigate the Star Wars universe.” Word is, George Lucas himself pushed for this story."
