And a host of others — factions and so forth — that I believe shall be in reality fascinating for the enthusiasts,” Soule tells StarWars.com in a brand new interview. “It’s mainly Boba Fett, through himself, towards all of those other people.”
Fett is not any stranger to comics, having seemed in Superstar Wars: Darkish Empire II and several other one-shot adventures within the 1990s, courtesy of Darkish Horse, and every other one-shot in 2019 as a part of Surprise-Disney’s overhaul of the valuables.

“Conflict of the Bounty Hunters is a tale about Boba Fett doing his factor, but it surely builds into one thing a lot larger, and that’s what the most efficient comedian crossovers and massive tales do,” Soule says. “They inform a really perfect tale in and of themselves, however they’re additionally the beginning of one thing, and so they open a large number of new doorways. And this tale will completely do this.”
