When Obi-wan Kenobi tells Yoda about Jango Fett, Yoda says:

Bring him here. Question him, we will.

As this HISHE SW:AoC video points out, Obi-wan's Jedi Starfighter has only one seat. Was he going to stuff Jango Fett in the trunk/spare parts compartment in the back of the ship?

How did Kenobi plan to bring Jango Fett to Coruscant?

    Good point; I'd never actually considered that! +1 – Often Right Dec 3 '15 at 4:29
  • Neither the original, nor Disney Junior novelization offer any detail of how he was supposed to do it. Does that satisfy you as an answer? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 3 '15 at 4:39
  • @DVK if an answer addresses the available canon/legends info (or lack thereof) and then goes on to say what they think might've been Kenobi's plan, I'd say that's a decent answer. – RedCaio Dec 3 '15 at 4:56

    @Peter - because someone like Fett made sure random weirdos don't succeed at flying his ship without his say-so. EU explicitly covererd that with Boba Fett and some yahoo trying to ship-jack him. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 3 '15 at 19:23

    @Peter - Boba Fett's ship was IIRC the same ship Jango owned in AoC. – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 3 '15 at 21:26

Neither the film, nor either of the novelizations address this.

However, Obi-Wan planned to contact the Jedi Council after arresting Fett, so presumably they could discuss transportation at that point. Doing so prior to actually arresting him would be a wee bit premature, as the events showed.

From the film:

Yes, Master. I will report back when I have him.

From R. A. Salvatore's novelization:

“Into custody, take this Jango Fett,” Yoda instructed. “Bring him here. Question him, we will.”
“Yes, Master. I will report back when I have him.” Obi-Wan glanced over his shoulder again and abruptly instructed R4 to cut the transmission.

From Patricia C. Wrede's Disney Junior Novelization:

Important, this clone army was, certainly; but also a distraction. Yoda frowned. How to reconcile the two? “Into custody, take this Jango Fett,” he told Obi-Wan at last. “Bring him here. Question him, we will.”
“Yes, Master,” Obi-Wan said. “I will report back when I have him.”

Had he succeeded in capturing Jango, Kenobi would have contacted Yoda to discuss how to bring Jango to Coruscant. We can speculate that the Jedi would send a transport, or maybe Kenobi would use either Jango's ship or borrow a ship from the Kaminoans.

  • It's interesting to note that we don't know exactly who Yoda was referring to when he said "Bring him here" as you could see that as a direct command to Kenobi, or pair it with the next sentence as meaning "Bring him here AND question him, we will" (referring to the Council performing both actions: the transport and questioning). I cannot tell the exact meaning behind it, given Yoda's typical sentence structure. – Broots Waymb Dec 3 '15 at 16:09
  • Pfft. Who reads the junior novelisations? – Valorum Dec 3 '15 at 19:17
  • @Richard - Juniors? – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 3 '15 at 19:20
  • @DVK - Touché, sir. – Valorum Dec 3 '15 at 19:24

    @RedCaio - "Hey, Yoda! I captured Jango as ordered and calling in as we agreed. What do you want me to do with him? Take him to Jedi on Coruscant? Sure! Send me a police van, or at least a ship with >1 seat!" – DVK-on-Ahch-To Dec 3 '15 at 21:27
