The galaxy far, far away is chock full of dynamic duos: Han Solo and Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, Anakin Skywalker and not having the high ground. Now there's a brand new terrific twosome in town and they're blowing up Instagram like so many Death Stars with videos of them hanging out, surprising fans, and practicing sweet stunts together IRL: Darth Maul and Boba Fett. Or, more accurately, actors Ray Park and Daniel Logan, who portrayed Darth Maul (physically) and young Boba Fett in the prequel trilogy, respectively.
Don’t get me wrong @instadaniellogan did a FANTASTIC JOB for the 1st time doing front somersaults however I said nope because he didn’t do the ‘jazz hands’ at the end. lol. GREAT JOB BROTHER! Way to be #bobafett #darthmaul #sithlife #bobafitt #daniellogan #raypark #sommersault #acrobatics #sithtraining
Pt 2 of “Lets do 100 back leg swings @instadaniellogan” If you’re done this, then you know that SCREAMING feeling Daniel is experiencing. I LOVE that feeling. That’s just the warmup for leg swings, Butterfly etc... #sithfit #sithlife #bobafit #wushu #basics #legbasics #legswings #butterfly #gymnastics #homegym #raypark #daniellogan #ankleweights #trampoline #tumbletrak
But we have a theory that these two aren't just flipping out on Instagram for Siths and giggles. What if they're training for an adventure in the galaxy far, far away? And not one about Han Solo, but rather a movie all about the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. Join host Hector Navarro for a spoiler-filled, speculatory journey into the future of Star Wars as we break down what this friendship could portend for the galaxy far, far away on a brand new episode of Nerdist News Edition.
Option #1: Boba Fett Begins
Option #2: Post-Sarlacc Pit
If you've steeped yourself in classic Star Wars Expanded Universe lore, then you know that Boba Fett's story didn't end after he was swallowed whole by the sarlacc dwelling within the Great Pit of Carkoon in Return of the Jedi. While it's unlikely Fett will be fighting in the Yuuzhan Vong War anytime soon, we could see him potentially making his way to the Outer Rim and doing some dirty work for an up-and-coming power broker and literal Scarface: Supreme Leader Snoke. Boba's latter-day adventures would help explain how Snoke rose to power, and also how Boba helped deliver not one, but two Solos fall into the hands of the bad guys.
Option #3: Teen Boba
Maybe they'll recast Boba Fett completely and go with a film set just after The Clone Wars showcasing the young bounty hunter as a moody, disrespectful teenager brought to heel by Aurra Sing before she's later killed by Tobias Beckett.
And, of course, this is to say nothing of option #4, which is that none of these things come to pass and all of our wonderful ideas get cut off at the knees like...
But what do you think? Are Darth Maul and Boba Fett training to do a movie together? Which of these movie would you most want to see? Let us know in the comments below!
