Boba Fett wasn’t the only bounty hunter active in the galaxy at the time of the original trilogy. In fact, Boba Fett was only one of several bounty hunters called upon by Darth Vader in The Empire Strikes Back to find Han Solo and the Millenium Falcon. Bossk, the trandoshan bounty hunter, was among them. Bossk and Boba Fett share a history together, as revealed by The Clone Wars animated series. When Boba Fett was younger, Bossk served as a mentor to Boba as he was developing the skills that would make him a formidable bounty hunter later on.
The two might have even been considered friends, and they worked together on jobs for a long time before eventually drifting apart. Their shared history creates plenty of opportunity to explore a closer look at Boba Fett and what drives him. Bossk has always been a character fans have wanted more from than his brief appearances in the Star Wars universe.
What happened to him after The Empire Strikes Back? Is he still a bounty hunter? Will he and Boba still be allies? Perhaps The Book of Boba Fett will give us a glimpse of the character post-original trilogy.
