“Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology”: A new fan-made trailer for a non-existent Boba Fett feature

By on September 3, 2015

Matt Delhauer over at the Nerdist posted a great fan-made trailer recently that shows how eager with anticipation the Star Wars fans are (and we have just three months before the premiere of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, which we’ve already told you about here and here), so eager that they’re starting to make their own films for the franchise.

Check out this trailer by Eric Demeusy for “Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology.”


Matt writes:

After the announcement of spin-off Star Wars films in the Star Wars universe (now called Star Wars Stories), starting with next year’s Rogue One, many have wondered if this also meant a return of the fan-favorite bounty hunter, Boba Fett. Lucasfilm has confirmed that the second Star Wars Story film, due out in 2018, will feature Boba Fett.

It seems Eric Demeusy, a Star Wars fan and filmmaker, isn’t content with just waiting around, though–so he decided to make one of his own.

Demeusy’s fan-made trailer, titled Star Wars: The New Republic Anthology, sees Boba Fett escaping the Sarlacc Pit on Tatooine and trudging through the desert before finding his ship, Slave-I. While this is as far as the trailer goes, the Vimeo page for the trailer extends on Demeusy’s story.

‘After being trapped for 30 years in the Great Pit of Carkoon, infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett makes a death defying escape and finds himself fighting alongside the Rebellion to establish a New Republic.'”
