The Complete Boba Fett Watchlist
We're all excited for The Book of Boba Fett to come out, and with only a week and a half remaining, I think that makes it time for a good Boba Fett marathon. Here's everything you should watch to get your full Fett experience.
Attack of the Clones
The first chronological appearance of Boba Fett is as his young self in Attack of the Clones, alongside his father Jango. We see him accompanying his father a lot and helping him in their ship, and most notably he watches his father's death at the hands of Mace Windu.
The Clone Wars - "Lethal Trackdown" Arc
The Clone Wars episodes "Death Trap," "R2 Come Home" and "Lethal Trackdown"all prominently feature a young Boba Fett on his mission to get revenge against Mace Windu, helped by bounty hunters like Aurra Sing and Bossk. He meets other clones, learns the harsh realities of life as a criminal in the galaxy, and is captured by our heroes at the end.
The Clone Wars - "Deception"
His next The Clone Wars appearance isn't for a little while, and his role in this episode is relatively small. He's in a Republic prison where Obi-Wan is undercover, and actually gets involved in a fight with the undercover Jedi, inciting a riot.
The Clone Wars - "Bounty"
Boba plays a larger role in his next appearance. He is now running a small bounty hunter syndicate known as Krayt's Claw, including Bossk, Latts Razzi, Dengar, and C-21. They team up with Ventress on a bounty job, though she betrays them, delivering Boba in a box to their client and paying off the other bounty hunters before running up.
A New Hope (Special Edition)
Boba's appearance in this movie is very, very small, because he was only added later in the Special Edition when the scene with Jabba and Han on Tatooine was added. He doesn't really do much, just walks a little bit, but he is there.
The Story of the Faithful Wookiee
While maybe not "canon" (though it's canon to me), the cartoon portion of the Star Wars Holiday Special is both short and the first ever appearance of Boba Fett, which I think makes it worth the watch.
The Empire Strikes Back
The first canon appearance of Boba Fett is definitely a good watch for him. We see him lined up with the other bounty hunters, a bit of him working with Vader, and of course his iconic capture of Han on Bespin. It's probably the most iconic of his appearances, and a great one to watch.
Star Wars Visions - "Tatooine Rhapsody"
Boba Fett is one of very, very few pre-established characters to make an appearance in Star Wars Visions, and his episode is great. He acts as an antagonist in this episode, but we also get to see him vibing to some music which is just very fun.
Return of the Jedi
Boba Fett gets involved in basically his first on-screen fight scene in Return of the Jedi over the sarlacc pit and well... we know how it goes for him. Still, it's good to watch because it looks like we're going to see exactly how he climbed out of said pit in The Book of Boba Fett.
The Mandalorian - "Chapter 5: The Gunslinger"
We only see Boba's feet at the very, very end of the episode here, but he is still there. Plus, this is a good one to watch for the series anyway because of our beloved Fennec Shand!
The Mandalorian - "Chapter 9: The Marshal"
This is one again where we only get a tiny little sliver of Boba Fett, but it is the first The Mandalorian episode where he's acknowledged on-screen as Boba Fett. Plus his armor plays a important role in the whole episode.
The Mandalorian - Chapters 14-16
Finally, his largest role in The Mandalorian is in the last 3 episodes of season 2. He gets his armor back and helps Din rescue Grogu, along with Fennec Shand who will also be important in the upcoming series. Definitely a must-watch if you're prepping for The Book of Boba Fett.
Total, if you watch everything in full and not just Boba Fett parts, you have about 14 hours of watching to do. Better get started if you want to watch everything in time for the 29th!
And as a bonus, make sure to also watch The Bad Batch episodes "Cornered" and "Bounty Lost" so you're ready for Fennec Shand in The Book of Boba Fett! If you want to do everything here chronologically, watch them between The Clone Wars and A New Hope.
