Star Wars Shares Lucasfilm’s Original Boba Fett Concept Art

Boba Fett might have had a very small role to play in the Star Wars original trilogy but fans have come to love the bounty hunter ever since his first appearance in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

The Mandalorian bounty hunter has become one of the most iconic characters in the Star Wars franchise, and now thanks to the official Star Wars Twitter account, fans get to learn more about the character and the original design that Lucasfilm had for him.

Posting on Twitter, Star Wars reveals Joe Johnston's original concept art for Boba Fett. Though it isn't too far off from the design that we've come to know and love we do get to see a few of the things that Lucas had altered, like Boba Fett's spiky boots.

It's a pretty cool picture, one that reveals Star Wars history.

There was a lot of clamor for a Boba Fett project the past few years, and while there were rumors going around saying that Lucasfilm would be releasing a standalone movie for the bounty hunter, the chances of that happening right now seem to be very unlikely.

Right now, Lucasfilm is developing a brand new Star Wars series with a character rocking some pretty cool Mandalorian armor. Created by Iron Man director Jon Favreau, Star Wars: The Mandalorian is set to feature Game of Thrones star Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter who traverses the outer rime of Star Wars' galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian is set to launch on Disney+ on November 12, 2019.
