With the upcoming [Star Wars: Episode VII](movie:711158) seeming like it could open tomorrow with all the publicity it's getting, one of the big questions is about returning characters.
Mainly Boba Fett and Darth Vader seem to be the characters that people want answers to.
Though Darth seems very very unlikely, Star Wars historian J.W. Rinzler who recently heard a reddit session stated that Georga Lucas told him personally that while Vader is unlikely, Fett lives.
Yes, he does. I have been in meetings with George where he confirms that Fett survived. If it comes from George then it’s true!
If you'll remember this scene from Return of the Jedi:
It would appear that Fett had his ticket punched. Well this news only adds to the badass reputation surrounding Fett and we should hope to see him in upcoming movies.
Glad to see Fett returning?
