EDITOR'S OPINION

At 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.

Jason Wingreen is hands down the most interesting voice tho a close second would be to the late Don Francks' performance both have the same flare type of growl that helps make the voice and performance memorable.

OK truth be told, I don't really like Boba Fett. Never once in the almost forty years of this franchise did he ever do anything worthwhile or memorable. Yeah he helped Vader out, yeah he kidnapped Han Solo, yeah he "died" in the sarlac pit but He just never felt like an interesting character the whole time. People think he's the greatest bounty hunter in the franchise, I disagree..that'd be Cad Bane but I will admit he does look cool but that's all he's got going for him for the time being.

as for the voices. A lot of them sound cool but are they really that memorable?

Don Francks was his first voice and he does have a mysterious untrustworthy voice. It's pretty cool and I sorta wish Lucas just kept him...oh well.

The late Jason Wingreen is the voice most people are familiar with, at least if you grew up before the 2004 special editions and you know what yeah he does sound awesome. Even if it were a few lines, he does leave enough of an impression on me.

I think its a shame they "replaced" him for the special editions with Temuera Morrison (the actor who played Jango Fett), and while he was cool as Jango, the re-dub just sounds half-assed and uninspired, like Lucas might have just done one take and that was it. It's a shame as I think he has a good voice and he is a solid actor.

Daniel Logan is a younger Boba Fett, he's the actor who played him in AOTC but honestly he's my least favourite here, he just sounds whiny and not really that cool, I just don't buy into the idea that he became the overhyped badass the fans love so much.

I think Chris Cox, Trevor Devall, Tom Kane and Dee Bradley Baker all sound really damn good. In fact in some ways I might actually like Dee Bradley Baker the best. I dunno he just clicked with me when I first heard it.

It's a tie between the late Jason Wingreen and Dee Bradley Baker. I won't be voting just yet. I'll come back to this later. I'll wait and see what the future films do with Boba Fett, maybe then they'll get me to finally care about this overrated and frankly lame character.

@Autovolt Boba is a character who greatly benefited from the old Expanded Universe. You get to see him do a lot more crazy stuff like having a lightsaber duel against Vader or taking over the Mandalorians. His showing in the movies is surprisingly unremarkable.

My new ranking would probably go like this.

1)Jason Wingreen
2)Don Franks
3)Dee Bradley Baker (Decent emulation of Morrison, except he's actually trying to act unlike the actor he is basing his performance off of.)
4)Chris Cox/Tom Kane ( good Wingreen impressions, if not a little forced at times.)
5)Trevor Devall
6)Temuera Morrison (I'm still not a fan of this change, and he sounds bored out of his mind.)
7)Daniel Logan. (Sorry, but even when voicing the younger version, he sounds far too old, and his acting is a bit lacking.)

Just curious, are you basing Morrison's ranking off only the Empire Redub? Because he got a lot better with reprising.

I feel that while Tom Kane tried, he didn't really have the "outback-ish" type voice like the others. He fits more of a stormtrooper style character, if you ask me.

I watched an extended clip of the holiday special on YouTube, and you know what? I actually think Don Francks is the most fitting and bad-*** voice for the character. He's a lot like Jason Wingreen, but his voice is deeper and he manages to be more expressive while still sounding like an experienced, enigmatic, hard-edged bad-*** bounty hunter who just doesn't give a crap and will ruin your day in no time flat if you piss him off. When I hear his Boba Fett speak, I genuinely feel a little intimidated. Jason Wingreen is still very good, but good grief Don Francks just sounds awesome! I sort of wish George Lucas would have gotten him to reprise the role for the The Empire Strikes Back, though I don't mean that as any disrespect to Wingreen.

As for Temuera Morrison, I think he sounds way too casual and phoned in. He doesn't have the appropriate defiant, "Screw you, I don't give a crap." sound that Boba needs. As far as Morrison impressions go, Dee Bradley Baker is almost the exact same thing except with a more effective deeper, raspier voice, and his acting has much more life in it. However, I like Tom Kane a little better because he still sounds a bit more threatening and has more attitude, plus the voice itself is like a middle ground between Morrison and Wingreen, which is pretty interesting.

1. Don Francks
2. Jason Wingreen
3. Tom Kane
4. Dee Bradley Baker
5. Temuera Morrison
6. Daniel Logan

I might come back later and switch out Tom Kane and Dee Baker once I hear more of Dee's performance. At this point I really haven't heard enough to tell how threatening he can be in the role.

Jason Wingreen wins this for me. He sounds a little too old, but he got the personality of an evil, gruff, seasoned Bounty Hunter who hates following the rules down perfectly, whereas Temuera Morrison just sounds like an average minion taking orders from their boss without question, like any regular Clone Trooper. Second place for me goes to Dee Bradley Baker. His voice sounds just like Morrison, but he sounds a lot gruffer and more evil than Morrison did. I hope Dee gets more to do next time he gets the role (which is inevitable).

Jason Wingreen> Temuera Morrison any day. Jason's raspy, mysterious take is much more threatening and memorable than Temuera's bland and static portrayal. I understand Lucas wanted a clear sense of continuity between the prequels and originals, but Temuera sounds incredibly phoned in.

Don is pretty good he's got the mysterious stranger part down well, but not much else. Daniel is nowhere near the badass bouty hunter, which I can cut a bit of slack as he's voicing the kid version. Tom Kane is nothing special, it's a passable impersonation of Wingreen. Dee does a damn fine job, he's using Temuera's voice and making it sound more threatening.

Jason Wingreen is my favorite, with Dee Bradley Baker in second, and Don Francks at third.

Jason Wingreen FTW. Tom Kane comes in second, doing a good imitation. Don Francks was okay, but deeper than what I'm used to. I never liked Boba having Jango's voice, so I'm not fond of that or Dee Bradley Baker's imitation. Daniel Logan...bleah!

Temuera has 2 be the the voice 4 me.

Dee did ok though while Don & Tom don't even compare 2 the rest.

Daniel doesn't really count as he's the young version but he is really good which makes him 2nd choice.

Jason earns my respect 4 being the original and it's not easy being the 1st person 2 voice a character.

@Ross123 Hate to be "that guy", but technically Don Francks is the first Boba Fett, Wingreen was only the first one in the main series.

Unless that's what you meant, in which case, carry on.

@Metabad Didn't pay attention to the dates when I posted this. I never really watched any of the classic Star Wars cartoons. I've only seen the films, The Clone Wars film & tv show, some Clone Wars episodes and some of the video games.

Thanks for pointing it out to me. However, some of the original VAs don't get my respect. I guess it just depends on how hard they try.

I like what the New Zealand accent adds to Boba. As far as replacing Jason Wingreen, well, that was kinda inevitable once Temuera Morrison was cast as Jango Fett. A clone of Jango would naturally sound like him, and Boba probably would try to emulate his father.

I like Jason Wingreen the best. I can see why some prefer Temuera, but to be honest, I don't think he sounds quite expressive enough. Jason does elongate a few words a little awkwardly, but I still prefer it. I am a also a bit of a purest when it comes to the original trilogy and George Lucas' changes don't sit well with me.

Gatta go with Jason Wingreen. He makes Boba sound mysterious and a scumbag at the same time.

A close second would go to Dee Bradley Baker who is obviously trying to imitate Morrison but does the performence better IMO.
