Boba Fett (/ˌboʊbə ˈfɛt/) is a fictional character and bounty hunter in the Star Wars franchise and the pilot of the Slave I spaceship. In Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980), he is hired by Darth Vader to capture Han Solo. He also appears at Jabba the Hutt's palace in Episode VI: Return of the Jedi (1983). In 1997, he was retroactively added to Episode IV: A New Hope, with the aid of computer-generated imagery. The prequel film Episode II: Attack of the Clones (2002) establishes his origin as a clone of bounty hunter Jango Fett who raised him as his son, and was the original owner of the Slave I. Boba also appears in episodes of The Clone Wars (2008), bridging his storyline between the two trilogies. The character is noted for speaking very few words in his film appearances, and for the adult original trilogy version never removing his helmet, without a face, communicating authority almost entirely through body language.
