How does Bobba Fett die? If you know the movie can you include it please?


In the most embarrassing way ever:

He's standing on a skiff when a blind Han Solo accidentally whacks his jet pack with a stick. The jet pack ignites, launching Boba Fett into the side of Jabba's sail barge. Then he bounces off and rolls into the Sarlacc Pit, where he "finds a new definition of pain and suffering as he is slowly digested over a thousand years."

Reference: Star Wars - Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

This demise has been parodied more than once by Robot Chicken Star Wars:

  • Technically, by lack of oxygen to the brain. – user31178 Jan 22 '16 at 2:36

  • Cause of death is always lack of oxygen to the brain. Either it gets destroyed and can't get any, or other organs fail/get destroyed, leading to an inability to supply oxygen (and maybe some other stuff) to the brain. – user31178 Jan 22 '16 at 2:40

    Anyway, I once read the novel featuring a story where Boba actually escapes the Sarlaac (naked, his armor having been digested). Not canon any longer, but worth mentioning. – user31178 Jan 22 '16 at 2:41

    @CreationEdge kinda the opposite of the new canon, where we only know that the armor survived. – ibid Jan 22 '16 at 2:57
