Why Did Darth Vader Make a Point To Warn Boba Fett about "No Disintegrations" in EMPIRE STRIKES BACK?
For years Star Wars fans have wondered why Darth Vader made a point to call Boba Fett out and warn him, saying "No Disintegrations". In all reality, I seriously doubt that this has been a burning question on peoples minds! I've never thought about why Vader would say that, but today we have an answer to this question! First of all let's watch the scene from Empire Strikes Back where this happens:
The Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View anthology book was released recently. In case you don't know, it features 40 short stories from the Star Wars universe, each one focuses on the perspectives of various characters involved with A New Hope to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary. One of the short stories centers on Boba Fett, who appeared in the special edition version of the film.
So, if you want to learn the history behind the little jab that Vader made at Fett's expense... here ya go:
“He’s [Vader] still got a mad on over those rebel spies I crisped on Coruscant. Idiots came at me with ion disruptors. What, they thought I wouldn’t carry a weapon accelerator? Flash, boom, three tiny ash piles. Tried to collect and Lord ‘No Disintegrations!’ refused to pay without bodies. My word’s not good enough, apparently. Reckoned I’d make up the loss by finding his droids and holding out for twice the reward.”
I thought that was some greatly detailed information on something that I imagine not many people really cared to think about. I also just want to remind you that this stuff is all canon now thanks to the Lucasfilm story group. I would love to be a part of that story group that keeps everything organized in the Star Wars universe.
Ok, thanks for visiting to read this little Star Wars detail! You can now proceed with the rest of your day.
