Weekend Retrospective | Meet Boba Fett, for the very first time
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yF5HFFcv8E Many have seen the early Ralph McQuarrie sketches of Boba Fett sporting an all-white helmet and armor design. What very few have ever had the opportunity to see is the original all-white Fett costume in action. A videotape was rolling to capture "proto Fett's" reveal to Lucas and company at the filmmaker's home on June 28, 1978. In the video we see sound designer Ben Burtt hosting the Boba Fett character design's unveiling. The character Boba Fett would be used later that year for the first time ever in Lucas' infamous Star Wars Holiday Special (if you haven't seen that, you must) before moving onto legend when he was finally introduced to a wider viewing audience in 1980's The Empire Strikes Back. via Dvr
