Star Wars: The Mandalorian, on Disney+ is wildly popular and it was largely inspired by Boba Fett. According to Jon Favreau. The director revealed to ATX TV That it was somewhat of a struggle, considering the character didn’t have much screen time in the original movies. Still, Favreau wanted more bounty hunters and that is why Mando exists.
“We all loved Boba Fett, but we never got as much of him as we all wanted,” Favreau said to ATX TV. “He came to unceremonious and in ‘Return of the Jedi.’ We wanted somebody that could kind of live up to what we had hoped to see when we were younger.”
Dave Filoni also commented on if we will be seeing Boba Fett:
“Interesting. I mean, there’s always possibilities, I don’t like to limit our storytelling in any way and, who knows? It would be really hypocritical for the guy who that helped bring Darth Maul back to life after he got cut in half, for me to say that somebody can’t survive a Sarlacc pit, but I don’t know. I mean, anything’s possible in Star Wars and I think, when fans love something, that’s what really fuels the possibility and the believability. So, who knows? But right now, we got Mando.”
