Fresh from the belly of the Sarlacc, Boba Fett fights his way to the surface of the Dune Sea on Tatooine, but the injured bounty hunter is an easy target of everything from Jawas to Tusken Raiders. Stripped of his armor and weapons, Fett faces a series of trials with nothing but fierce determination to stay alive.
Fresh from helping a fellow Mandalorian carry out a daring attack on an Imperial cruiser, Boba Fett has returned to Tatooine, killed Bib Fortuna – heir to the criminal empire of Jabba the Hutt – and has assumed the throne that once belonged to Jabba. With Fennec Shand, a particularly capable assassin, at his side, he begins accepting “tributes” from the locals, but when he dares to step outside of his fortress without a large retinue of armed guards, Fett discovers that moving in on the Hutts’ old territory in and around Mos Espa won’t be accepted easily.

Notes: Since Jabba’s sail barge is still smoldering from its destruction in Return Of The Jedi (1983) and ripe for the picking by Jawas, it’s fair to assume that Fett’s escape from the Sarlacc happened in a matter of hours rather than days (and certainly a long way from Threepio’s thousand-year estimate, though that figure may have been dictated by Jabba’s PR department). Jabba’s presence at the Boonta Eve podrace at Mos Espa in The Phantom Menace (1999) suggested that his palace is in close proximity to that city. Daniel Logan, as young Fett, appears only a scene from Attack Of The Clones (2002).
