THE HUNTER'S JOURNAL - June 13, 2005
Hello Boba Fett fans! Last time we reported some early excitement about
Boba Fett, according to a small newspaper, having a "cameo," but we've
all come to terms with the likelihood that Young Boba Fett had no place
in Revenge of the Sith, for better or for worse. According to a recent
poll of 1,200 at bobafett.com, most people believe he's hiding in the
shadows... while only a few expect to see Young Fett included on a DVD
deleted scene. In the meantime, the Boba Fett world does not slow down.
