Of the many, many, many characters and events to be relegated to Star Wars Legends' expanded universe via the Disney acquisition of the franchise, the one who suffered the most is arguably Boba Fett. He was the subject of numerous books, comics, and other media that fleshed out a significant backstory that's since been completely removed from canon. Still, Boba Fett is an incredibly popular character with a huge cult following, and he's made the leap into canon via a number of different works, even serving as the indirect inspiration for The Mandalorian. He's also set to star in his own Disney+ series, The Book of Boba Fett, so there's plenty of Boba going around.
Still, despite being one of the most beloved fan-favorite characters in the Star Wars franchise, there's a lot that the casual fan probably doesn't know about Boba Fett. After all, since the 2012 Disney acquisition, Boba Fett has appeared in tons of cartoons and comics. He's a character who started as one of the greatest villains in the original trilogy despite being just another guy trying to make his way in the galaxy. Granted, he was working as a bounty hunter, but that's a perfectly acceptable profession in the Star Wars universe, and he was pretty good at it. This list features the most interesting things you probably didn't know about Boba Fett, so take a look down below, and be sure to upvote anything you didn't already know!
