Bespin Boba (a.k.a. Dak) most recently joined two other Fetts, Daniel Logan and Dickey Beer, for another billed Boba Fett Reunion. Fans will recall the Fett tradition started at Celebration Europe II in Essen, Germany, that was capped by five Fett’s performing a Maori haka onstage with Warwick Davis before 7,000 ecstatic fans. This September’s three-Fett reunion was during the 2014 Cincinnati Comic Expo at the Duke Energy Convention Center. The highpoint was a rollicking Reunion Panel before a full house on day three of the con, captured by an Expo video that the organizers have just posted on YouTube.
Followers of Jedi News may have read Dak’s report of the panel highlight: Dickey Beer’s reveal that Princess Leia literally saved his life during shooting of Return of the Jedi’s Sarlacc Pit battle scene.
Attendees — and his fellow panelists — were stunned to hear that Slave Leia laid on him the kiss of life…for real.
