How did Boba Fett survive the Well of Sarlacc in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi?

Published

on

Boba Fett is back, star Wars fans. After literally decades of waiting, the beloved character made his return in The mandalorian season 2. As portrayed by Temuera Morrison, we finally got to see the famous bounty hunter years after his unceremonious fall into the Well of Sarlacc in Return of the Jedi. But an important question has yet to be answered; How did Boba Fett survive his fall into the Well of Sarlacc?

The mandalorian did not address this issue specifically. Although the next spin-off The Boba Fett Book seems ready for. With that said, some Star Wars Legends footage may provide some clues. The Legend Tales for those who may not be familiar, are stories that occurred before Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2021. The company pressed the reset button in official canon, and everything produced after the merger was considered part of he. The rest no longer count, although Lucasfilm has drawn enough from these old stories to inform the new canon.

As far as canon is concerned, novels, comics, and video games have yet to come up with a clear explanation of the character’s escape from certain doom. But some strong clues have been given. So, let’s take a look at what we know about Boba Fett’s survival from both Star Wars Legends and current canon.

How did Boba Fett survive in Legends?

Marvel Comics’ Star Wars # 81 offers the first look at Boba Fett escaping from the Well of Sarlacc. Published in December 1983, it takes place shortly after the events of Return of the Jedi, a plot thread in the theme begins with Fett after his fall into the mouth of the beast. We can see a figure shooting out of the Sarlacc, which is revealed as Fett using his Jetpack. Later, Jawas bumps into him and picks him up, assuming he is a droid. It is later explained that the Sarlacc regurgitated the bounty hunter. A relatively simple explanation. Interestingly, Fett has a bit of amnesia. So when Han Solo and Princess Leia get tangled up with these same Jawas later in the issue, Fett doesn’t recognize Han. In the first place. It all ends with Jawa’s sand crawler falling into Sarlacc’s well. With fat. Right where it started.

The most complete account in the history of Star Wars Legends about the survival of Boba Fett arrives A Barve Like That: The Boba Fett Story in the anthology book Tales from Jabba’s Palace. The book was published in 1996, with the story in question written by JD Montgomery. Again, this is no longer considered canon, but history could provide clues as to how the bounty hunter escaped a seemingly certain conviction, prompting him to return in The mandalorian. Fair warning, parts of this explanation get pretty weird.

In the tale, Boba Fett wakes up inside Sarlacc’s stomach after his fall in Return of the Jedi. It is trapped in the creature’s tentacles, and furthermore, its digestive juices have severely damaged its armor. This is where things get weird. Fett discovers that he has a telepathic link with other Sarlacc victims from the past. He then proceeds to communicate with them, telepathically. Then he makes his way to Susejo, the first victim of the well. It turns out that Susejo has a bit of control over the Sarlacc, given this telepathic connection. The Sarlacc then contacts Boba Fett’s jetpack in the right way. The blast provides enough juice for the famous bounty hunter to escape the creature’s clutches. Then use grenades to make a hole in the beast and escape completely. Thus, Fett lived to claim his place as one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy.

Boba Fett also made a post-Return of the Jedi appearance in Dark empire. In the comic series Dark Horse published, we get a different perspective. Less about how he survived and more simply a confirmation that he did indeed beat the odds and escape the clutches of the beast. In the comic, Han Solo meets Boba Fett once more and, as one might suspect, is shocked to see the bounty hunter who handed him over to Jabba the Hutt. The last time they were seen, Fett had fallen into the Sarlacc, apparently to be slowly digested over 1,000 years. But we don’t learn how he did it. Only Fett lived to fight another day.

Has the Star Wars Canon already explained how Boba Fett survived?

As for official canon, no official explanation for Boba Fett’s survival has been presented. We will undoubtedly get that explanation in The Boba Fett Book. But several clues have been provided in canon material. And they suggest that the leak will at least reflect what happened in Legends.

Cobb Vanth, who was portrayed by Timothy Olyphant in The mandalorian, was found to be in possession of Boba Fett’s armor. The representative of the law was introduced in the Consequences: life debt Chuck Wendig novel. In it, we learn how he found the armor and what he did to get it.

Vanth simply buys the Mandalorian armor from some Jawas. In the book, Wendig only hints, albeit quite strongly, that the armor belonged to Boba Fett. But with what we learned in The mandalorian, these points can now be officially connected. It is explained in the book that the explosion from Jabba’s barge left the Sarlacc horribly injured. The resulting wound left the creature with a large, exposed wound on its stomach. The Jawas take the opportunity to poke through the creature’s opening and loot what they can. And, unsurprisingly, they discovered the familiar armor that Boba Fett once wore.

It seems feasible that Boba Fett used this hole in the creature to escape. Jango Fett’s son may also have used the weapons at his disposal to make things easier. Grenades The missile launcher in your jetpack. He was well armed. It’s unclear if the strange telepathic link to the past had anything to do with it. Although it seems likely that the thread is abandoned, or at least altered, as it does not seem to fit the character that currently exists in canon.

Suggested reading

Those who are interested in diving a little deeper can read a bit in both Star Wars Legends and current canon. Just to recap, the full story of your Legends survival is contained within the pages of Tales from Jabba’s Palace, specifically in history A Barve Like That: The Boba Fett Story. The book can be easily purchased online, either as an e-book or a physical copy, for those who prefer that route. Although less specifically related to Boba Fett, the character is included in the Star Wars: Dark Empire Trilogy. Volumes are collected as Dark Empire I., Dark Empire II other The end of the empire. Numbers are available online, or old copies can be purchased, depending on availability, from comic book stores or a digital retailer of your choice.

Lastly, Chuck Wendig’s Star Wars: Aftermath trilogy will appeal to those who are specifically interested in the current canon. While the novels are not about Boba Fett at all, the clues to his survival are contained within the pages of these books. Most notably, Consequences: life debt. The books are available in paperback and hardcover. They can also be easily obtained as e-books or audiobooks.
