Attack of the Clones is where Boba Fett is introduced to audiences as the young son of Jango Fett, a legendary bounty hunter serving Count Dooku and the Separatists. He wasn’t an ordinary son, though. Instead, he was a clone. Boba was created as an unaltered clone at Jango’s wishes so that he could be raised as his son and carry on his legacy.

It was all in an effort to use Han Solo and Princess Leia as bait for Luke Skywalker.

As prisoners started to revolt, Fett jumps in to fight Skywalker. Solo struck the bounty hunter’s rocket pack, causing him to lose control and sending him down into the Sarlacc’s mouth.

Just kidding! As it turns out, Boba Fett managed to survive falling into the Sarlacc pit somehow. Boba Fett actually first appeared somewhat slyly, smack in the middle of season 1. At the end of “Chapter 5: The Gunslinger,” Fennec Shand is left for dead in the desert – but a mysterious figure is seen approaching her. Didn’t that sound of jangling spurs when he walked sound familiar?
