The Fett is back. Boba Fett that is, and really, are you surprised? No you're probably not.
What you will be surprised at is that John Morton will be voicing the character and not Daniel Logan (who voiced young Boba in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and of course played him in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones), nor Dee Bradley Baker (who has been voicing Jango Fett clones in Star Wars: The Clone Wars as well). But before you question Morton's mettle, know that he played Dak (Luke's doomed snowspeeder tail gunner) in The Empire Strikes Back.
Moviecricket scored the scoop by attending a Star Wars panel in Burnley, LancashireMorton also revealed even more details about Star Wars: Rebels.
“The key that is going to make this work is Rebels. Rebels will set up and point the direction for ‘Episode VII’.”
Curious, though not surprising given (so far) it is the only Star Wars property we're going to see until Episode VII hits. Of course, this then begs the question: We know there have been hints that some characters from Star Wars: The Clone Wars will show up in Star Wars: Rebels. Does this mean that the characters in either show will show up in Star Wars Episode VII: *Insert Title Fans Will Criticize Here? Not necessarily, but this does make one wonder just how much of the timeline Star Wars: Rebels will play with?
Along with that nugget, Morton also provided this about the characters on the show that hint at this possibility:
“The characters they are creating in Rebels will be around in ‘Episode VII’.”
Again, will the show play with time? Who knows, other than the fact that Star Wars: Rebels will air later this summer and we know at least now one character will show up in the series. But will Vader show up? Until then, have a random Boba Fett moment we'll not see in the show:
