Mark Hamill: ‘I once proposed that Boba Fett was actually Luke’s mother’



“I’ve always liked to generously share my terrible ideas,” laughs the Star Wars actor.

TMC continues the rebroadcast of the saga Star Wars with episode 5, tonight. For many fans the best of the saga. To wait until 9:15 p.m., back to a crazy anecdote linked to the plot of The Empire Strikes Back.

In November 2018, the creators of a podcast devoted to Star Wars have arrested Mark Hamill on Twitter to find out if it was true that he had proposed to George Lucas the following idea between the filming of episodes 5 and 6: that Boba Fett is in fact his mother.

Fun fact: Mark Hamill never met Natalie Portman

“I had suggested this to George, because I thought it overrode Vader being my father.replies the actor. I saw her as a double agent working in secret for the rebels. Spoiler: he didn’t like the idea. “

In another tweet, he clarifies: “So yes, once I proposed that Boba Fett was actually Luke’s mother. I always liked to generously share my terrible ideas. I thought to myself that in the lot there might be one that could be useful to them. At the time, I didn’t even know that Leia was my sister.”

An anecdote told long before Boba Fett was entitled to his series on Disney +. At the time, a film project had been mentioned, but it finally fell through to favor The Book of Boba Fett, released at the beginning of the year. In a few weeks, it will be Obi-Wan Kenobi’s turn to have his series, still in the guise of Ewan McGregor.
