Disney+ Day seems to be starting early for some European countries. A few properties have already gone live, and even though there are still several events scheduled for the remainder of the day relating to Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel projects, the Boba Fett special titled Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett is already available.
It’s a 21-minute mini-documentary, cataloging the evolution of the character through the years, from its four lines and six minutes and 32 seconds of screen time in The Empire Strikes Back, to the pop culture icon it evolved into. We get footage of his introduction at the County Fair, in Marin County in 1978, the hows and the whys of its creation, and several small intimate stories of how both fans and people who worked in Star Wars had their lives impacted by the Mandalorian bounty Hunter.
It features interviews with George Lucas, Dave Filoni, Joe Johnston, Ben Burtt (sound designer), some Ralph McQuarrie sketches, and much more, including statements by Duwayne Dunham, who was part of the editing team and became the first man to wear the iconic armor.
Disney+ kicks off stateside tomorrow.
