Filoni Shares Scrapped ‘The Clone Wars’ Showdown Between Boba Fett and Cad Bane

One of the coolest things that David Filoni and Pablo Hernandez showed off at their Animated Origins panel at Star Wars Celebration this week was a rough cut of a duel between Boba Fett and Cad Bane from a scrapped episode of The Clone Wars cartoon. While the animation didn’t feature TV ready polish, it still provided an awesome look at what could’ve been if the show never got axed before it was officially over.

The clip shows Boba and Cad having an argument, which ultimately involves other iconic Star Wars bounty hunters, and ends in a wild west style dual between Fett and Bane. The result of the duel revealed a pretty awesome Star Wars Easter Egg, which revealed how Boba got that dent on his helmet. What this clip revealed is that The Clone Wars should have never ended prematurely, and that bounty hunters are rad.
