STAR WARS: Boba Fett's New Armor Design Has Seemingly Been Revealed...In An Episode Of THE SIMPSONS?!

STAR WARS: Boba Fett's New Armor Design Has Seemingly Been Revealed...In An Episode Of THE SIMPSONS?! STAR WARS: Boba Fett's New Armor Design Has Seemingly Been Revealed...In An Episode Of THE SIMPSONS?!

It’s been a while since we last saw Boba Fett in live-action, but many Star Wars fans are convinced his next set of armour has been revealed in a new episode of The Simpsons. Read on for details...

Boba Fett was conspicuous by his absence in The Mandalorian season 3 and, much to the chagrin of actor Temuera Morrison, the bounty hunter even took a backseat to Din Djarin in his own series. 

Given the mixed response to The Book of Boba Fett, it's currently unclear what the future holds in store for a character we all thought had died in Return of the Jedi. However, some Star Wars fans are convinced his new armour design has been revealed...in The Simpsons?!

In the latest episode, titled "The Tipping Point," Boba Fett is spotted wearing a suit which features several significant changes to the character's appearance in Disney's recent Star Wars offerings. 

As we first pointed out on SFFGazette.com, the design is clearly based on The Book of Boba Fett but includes added details to his shoulder pauldrons and Mandalorian spike decals above his helmet's visor. While this may seem like a stretch, Disney likely provided The Simpsons with reference material for Fett's new look, only for that to be shelved when plans for a role in The Mandalorian season 3 were scrapped. 

Given how long it takes to produce an episode of The Simpsons, it's possible the animated series was unable to revert to the "canon" design or simply didn't realise they shouldn't use this version due to a lack of communication with Disney/Lucasfilm.

Keep in mind that mistakes and last-minute changes like these are how and why we often see action figures which don't match the characters ultimately seen on screen. 

"I don't know what's going on there," Morrison said of The Book of Boba Fett season 2 last December. "We're coming out of this downtime period so I think everyone is just settling back in and it all goes back to budgets and what they want to do and how much the thing costs."

"I really don't know. Judging by the fans I've met, they all want a season two, but I don't know what's going to happen."

In some respects, it makes sense for The Book of Boba Fett to be a limited series. After all, it finally solved the mystery of how the bounty hunter survived the events of Return of the Jedi and ultimately solidified his place as Tatooine's new leader.

Still, we'd bet on Fett making his return in The Mandalorian and Grogu movie or Dave Filoni's planned Star Wars event picture.

@TK420 - I suppose.
But in the films he's utterly [frick]ing useless lol
And already people here are saying he was cool in the 80's and 90's and I'm thinking did we watch the same films?
Jango was way better.

@BritishMonkey - I wouldn't say he was useless in the OT, either. He was the one who tagged Solo's shit and followed them for Bespin. The Empire didn't do that.

Boba Fett was cool in the 80s and 90s but now he’s a boring bland character. Disney strikes again. 👎

I actually really liked the book of boba fett. My only gripe was sidelining the character, replacing him with Mando & Grogu halfway through the show just so they could promote mandalorian season 3. Aside from that the show was neat. I want a season 2 but it’s unlikely never going to see the light of day. Shame.

One day someone has to do a study as to why Boba Fett became this big thing. Watching these films as a kid pre internet, no one I knew cared about him, he was just some dumbass who did nothing. When I found out that he was some fan favourite I was baffled. Still am.

@Twenty23Three - it's simple. He looks cool and he was the best action figure in the line. Case closed.

@Waifuslayer - He was also the only character besides Palpatine that Vader showed any respect towards which instantly made him cool along with his awesome look.

@FireandBlood - The Japanese people are pissed about this. The disrespect shown to their culture is being written about in articles all over Japan now.

@WarMonkey - Disrespect? What, because they went with a black outsider instead of a white saviour for the 100th time? Where was this energy for Nioh? Or every other piece of media that features the stock ‘William Adams’ character?

But I get it. It’s rough for you lot. You’ve either got to play as the black guy or the Japanese woman, neither of which are ideal for your lot. Sucks to be like you.

@FireandBlood - Here's a Forbes article and you can search social media for reactions from Japan for this.
https://www.forbes.com/sites/olliebarder/2024/05/15/japanese-fans-are-puzzled-that-yasuke-is-in-assassins-creed-shadows/?sh=1c2ec6d0e6e6

Also in case you are unaware there is a fight going on at Wikipedia for days now where people are trying to claim the Black Samurai actually existed. and others are trying to post the proof it's a lie. The most common Japanese response is asking whether they are intentionally trying to mock their culture and disrespect their race.

I have no idea what you are talking about with your racist accusations or who "you lot" is referencing. That's a very weird response to the factual comment I made. Perhaps you should know a little bit about a subject before you comment on something in the future. It'll make you look less like a bigoted fool.

@WarMonkey - Yasuke is a part of their culture. If they don’t like that, they should take it up with their ancestors for taking him in, in the first place. But it is funny how, in all of this, you’re all ignoring the fact there’s a whole Japanese protagonist in the game. But I guess she isn’t good enough, on the account of her being a she and all.

And you know exactly what I meant. I wasn’t being subtle about it. You have the same stance on all thing surrounding non-white male protagonists on this side, and we both know why, don’t we?

Wasn't that long ago that people wanted to see more Boba Fett. Then Disney's Boba Fett happened.

How about they redesigned Boba Fest to make him easier to draw, line, and color for what was most likely meant to be a throw away scene????
