Boba Fett is a fictional character in Star Wars. A bounty hunter and Mandalorian hired by Darth Vader to find the Millennium Falcon, he is a villain in both Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones establishes Boba Fett's back story as a child clone of Jango Fett, who raises him as a son. Boba is created for Jango by the cloners of the Planet Kamino, who also created the Clone Army that the republic will eventually enlist. The Star Wars Expanded Universe expands on Fett's origins and career as a bounty hunter. Fett's air of danger and mystery have created a cult following for the character, who has been merchandised across multiple media.
