This video, created by Legacy Effects, tells the story of Boba Fett’s fate.
“The Scavenger” by Legacy Effects was created in 2012 for The Dented Helmet’s ‘as you wish’ Project to benefit Make-A-Wish Foundation. This one-of-a-kind helmet is currently being auctioned along with other reimagined helmets at the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s Charity Auction site www.makeawishauctions.com. The proceeds from the auction help Make-A-Wish to grant wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions.
About the Helmet
When asked about the process of creating this helmet, the artist said: “We create characters for film and television. So I thought, why don’t we create a character in the Star Wars world that could further a story from the film itself? And, what story could we tell? For ages, fans and film goers alike have wondered what happened to Boba Fett at the end of “Return of the Jedi”. Boba Fett falls into the Sarlac pit and there’s been endless discussions as to what his ultimate fate was. So we figured, after his untimely demise, perhaps a small inhabitant of Tatooine discovered his helmet and moved in like a hermit crab. It was a great idea because it allowed us to help tell a story even further. A story we’ve all thought about a million times, and that has been deliberated for years. The concept was very clever and it gave us a great starting point for collaboration. It allowed for organic creature work, model shop work, working animatronic movement, lighting effects, and ultimately, a mini movie within the piece. This approach allowed for the whole team to participate and creatively contribute to the end result. After a collection of concept alien life forms were presented, the team collectively determined the best of all the elements, to create an extraterrestrial being that fit within the world they were trying to expand. In the end, the entire team decided the final design of the creature.
