Voice Compare » Star Wars » Boba Fett
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Boba Fett with sound clips and images.
EDITOR'S OPINIONAt long last, the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter has been added to the Voice Compare. Boba Fett has been a fan favourite since his first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back, and continues to be one of the most prominent characters in the Star Wars universe.
While not the first voice of Boba, Jason Wingreen has been the most familiar voice for him in the past 30 years. While having little to say in Empire, he made each line memorable.
Naturally with re-releases and attempts to "bridge" the two trilogies together, Jason was replaced in 2004 with Temuera Morrison, best known for playing Boba's father, Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. At this point it was revealed Boba was a clone of Jango, so it makes sense that Boba would share the same voice. To Temuera's credit, it's not a bad take, but in terms of delivery, it kinda pales in comparison to Jason Wingreen.
Don Francks, best known for Sabretooth in the 90s X-Men: The Animated Series, Don provided the voice of Boba Fett in his first appearance, the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special. Don would eventually reprise his role twice in the Droids cartoon series. I'm not really sure what to say about it, as it's not bad, but nor is it a favourite of mine.
Tom Kane would get his chance at voicing the character in Jedi Academy: Jedi Knight. While Tom Kane has shown to have a wide selection of excellent performances, this one I honestly have to say doesn't really stick with me. It's nothing horrible, but to me, it just doesn't have the same "presence" as the others.
Daniel Logan, who played a young Boba in Attack of the Clones would reprise his role in the 2008 Clone Wars series. I feel he's got an unfair disadvantage compared to the other choices on here, solely for the fact he's the "young" Boba and not the hardened Bounty Hunter we've come to love.
And finally we have Dee Bradley Baker from The Force Unleashed II (and the Sith expansion of Force Unleashed I). Already standing in for Temuera Morrison as the voice of the clones in The Clone Wars, it makes sense he would get the chance to voice Boba as well.
Overall, I'd have to say my 3 personal favourites have to be Jason Wingreen, Temuera Morrison and Dee Bradley Baker.
