Rumors are still flying around Boba Fett getting his own stand-alone Star Wars movie. The “Anthology” is tentatively set for 2020, though no other details have been released. The most prevalent theory is the film will be an origin story for the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter.

To me, that angle would be an odd retread as Fett has appeared in the cartoon “The Clone Wars” as a child. Director Eric Demeusy seems to agree. In his recent short film “Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology,” Demeusy envisions a different tale. One where Fett emerges* from the Sarlacc pit after three decades, only to discover the galaxy has changed significantly. Even as a fan trailer, the amount of skill and technical effort is on point!

*As C-3P0 points out, the Sarlacc digests victims slowly over 1000 years. This indicates that somehow the creature is also keeping its food alive.
