Joe Johnston Trying To Get George Lucas To Do A Boba Fett Movie? I can hear people saying "Why? It's unnecessary! Boba Fett is overrated!" And you may all be right, but at the same time, I think it would be very very cool! Especially if it shows the transition from Boba Fett as a kid to him taking up the mantle of Jango Fett as a bounty hunter. Joe Johnston must really like characters with rocket packs and helmets -- first The Rocketeer, and now Boba Fett?
