14. Boba Fett’s lines have been re-recorded

Those familiar with Star Wars know it’s a cinematic universe that George Lucas loved to alter and tinker with long after his films’ release, giving fans plenty of fodder for discussion. This was the case well into the prequel era when Temuera Morrison was cast to play Boba Fett’s father, Jango Fett, the genetic originator of the Republic Clone Army.

Similar to Darth Vader — where David Prowse was the actor for the character but James Earl Jones voiced the character — the same went for Boba Fett. Though Jeremy Bulloch acted as the character in scenes, it was Jason Wingreen who dubbed over lines in the original trilogy.

However, with the new importance of Boba’s role for the prequels and beyond, Temuera Morrison re-recorded Boba’s lines for the Empire Strikes Back’s DVD release in 2004, providing a logical consistency and added coherence across the films.

Additionally, Dee Bradley Baker, who voiced the clone troopers in The Clone Wars and The Bad Batch, modeled his performance after Morrison’s distinct New Zealand accent, offering further uniformity for the character and his genetic offspring in the Star Wars universe.

While Morrison has become known as the primary face and voice of Boba Fett, Bulloch, Wingreen and Baker’s contributions to the character can never be denied, all of which add up to and make up the enigmatic bounty hunter.
