Young Boba Fett Actor Didn’t Know Jango Died Until AOTC Premiere

Daniel Logan, who played a young Boba Fett in
Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones, reveals that he didn’t know Jango Fett died until the film’s premiere. Although Boba Fett has been one of the most iconic
Star Wars characters since his first appearance back during the franchise’s original trilogy, his backstory was not fleshed out until the prequel trilogy nearly two decades later.,During
Episode II, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) travels to the planet Kamino where he meets a young Boba Fett, and Boba’s father, Jango Fett (Temuera Morrison). Not only is Jango Fett revealed to be one of the fiercest bounty hunters in the galaxy, but Jango’s DNA is also the template for an army of clone troopers that have been commissioned behind the backs of the Jedi. Along with all of the reveals surrounding Jango, Obi-Wan also learns that Boba is not Jango’s biological son, but an unaltered clone of him. Regardless, the two share a father-son bond that leaves Boba broken when his father is decapitated by Jedi Master Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) in front of him.,Related: Star Wars Knows Jango Fett Was The Best Thing About Attack Of The Clones,To commemorate the 20th anniversary of
Episode II at Star Wars Celebration 2022, Logan talks about filming the scene where he mourns Jango’s death. Logan explains that George Lucas didn’t explain exactly what was happening in the scene, so Logan was surprised at the film’s premiere. See his full statement below.,Lucas’ omission of Jango’s death to Logan is interesting considering how pivotal that scene is to Boba’s character arc going forward. After all, while Boba does not appear in
Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge Of The Sith as Logan jokes, he’s prevalent in
Star Wars: The Clone Wars as an up-and-coming bounty hunter intent on getting revenge on Mace Windu.,Ultimately, Jango’s death is a critical moment for Boba, but Jango’s lifestyle as a bounty hunter also influences Boba for much of his life. It isn’t until
The Book Of Boba Fett during the post-original trilogy
 era that Boba’s life as a bounty hunter seems entirely behind him. Ironically, since Logan’s Boba was a copy of Morrison’s Jango, Morrison now portrays an older Boba Fett in a series like
The Book Of Boba Fett and
The Mandalorian. Regardless, while Logan may not have known every detail about Boba’s life while filming
Star Wars: Episode II – Attack Of The Clones, he still left an important mark on the Boba Fett legacy.,Next: Why Not All Jango Fett Clones Look The Same,Source: Star Wars Celebration 2022
