Video Shows How Book of Boba Fett Reshot An Attack of the Clones Scene

A new video shows how The Book of Boba Fett reshot a Star Wars: Episode 2 – Attack of the Clones scene from the arena at the First Battle of Geonosis.

A new video shows how The Book of Boba Fett reshot a scene from Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones. In Attack of the Clones, it’s revealed that a bounty hunter by the name of Jango Fett is being cloned to create an army of soldiers for the Galactic Republic. Jango’s only requirement was that they make him his own unmodified clone, to raise as his son, whom he named Boba Fett. At the end of the film, during the First Battle of Geonosis in the arena, Jango Fett is beheaded by Samuel L. Jackson’s Jedi Master Mace Windu, leaving a mourning Boba to cradle his father’s Mandalorian helmet.

Jango Fett was played by actor Temuera Morrison, who has since become a staple of the Star Wars franchise, particularly as it pertains to Storm Troopers. His voice and likeness have been used in live-action, animated, and video game form since the revelation that Jango Fett was the basis for all the clones in the Clone Army. Morrison’s presence in Star Wars lore has now come full circle, as he’s once again playing Boba Fett, now in an older form, re-emerging in The Mandalorian season 2 and now in his own show, The Book of Boba Fett.

In the first episode of The Book of Boba Fett, Boba is in a Bacta healing tank and reliving his life through flashbacks. One of those flashbacks is to the moment after his father, Jango, was killed. In the original film, Boba picks up his father’s helmet and holds it to his head in a wide shot of him in the arena, before cutting away. In a new comparison video (via Cinematic Captures) for The Book of Boba Fett, the scene appears to be reshot, with a wider angle and with the camera moving upwards to reveal more of the carnage at Geonosis. There’s also a close-up shot added of Boba holding the helmet and seeing his reflection in the visor. Take a look at the comparison below:

Director Robert Rodriguez, who is no stranger to toying with digital effects, directed the opening episode of The Book of Boba Fett, so it’s no surprise that he’d be able to recapture such a moment and enhance it. By all accounts, the scene is filmed in such a way that it’s difficult to discern the difference between the show and the original movie in which the scene appeared. However, the comparison video makes it very obvious that there was a recreation of the scene done, and very successfully at that.

With so much of Boba Fett’s history left unexplored, it will be interesting to see if The Book of Boba Fett recreates or enhances any of his appearances from the original trilogy, as well as the prequel trilogy. Boba Fett is not seen again in the prequels after Attack of the Clones and his appearances in the original trilogy are minimal at best. However, Star Wars fans have been asking for more Boba Fett since they first saw the character in the Star Wars Holiday Special from 1978. Now more than four decades later, the character is finally getting his due and there’s a lot of history to unpack.
