For the past year a completely bogus rumor that Lucasfilm planned to retcon Boba Fett’s origin has been spread around the internet like it was truth.
Despite the Lucasfilm story group explaining why the rumor was completely false and only made up by Prequel haters to fulfill some sick delusion they have about the immovable objects of canon being wiped out, people still pass the rumor on whenever they want to bash the Prequels on some message board.
This week the new [easyazon_link identifier=”1465436014″ locale=”US” nf=”y” tag=”furiofanbo-20″]Ultimate Star Wars[/easyazon_link] reference book came out, and this canon resource again crushes the hopes and dreams of those who believed that Lucasfilm would retcon the origin of Boba Fett so that he would have no connection to the Clones.
The Boba Fett Fan Club took some pictures of the Boba Fett section of the book and his Clone lineage is a big part of the character. This book is canon, and there’s zero mention of some nameless person killing the clone Boba Fett and taking on his name.
Sorry Prequel haters, Boba Fett is a clone of Jango Fett and that’s canon.
