Boba Fett fan film draws on ‘Star Wars’ Western influences

Among George Lucas’ myriad influences for Star Wars was the 1968 Sergio Leone classic Once Upon a Time in the West, so it’s only fitting that Eric Raunio should embrace spaghetti Westerns for his short film “Boba Fett: The Twelve Parsec Stare.”

All the elements are in place as the mysterious bounty hunter tracks his target to a dusty saloon in a remote space port, where a banged-up little droid event whistles and chirps a bit of Ennio Morricone’s theme to The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

If we’re lucky and the second Star Wars anthology film does indeed center on Boba Fett and other bounty hunters, maybe we’ll actually get a full-length space Western.
