Who animated the iconic BOBA FETT in THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL? John Celestri! John joins us in a fascinating discussion on the inception and animation of “The Faithful Wookiee” animated short from The Star Wars Holiday Special. Since he was the senior animator at Nelvana Studios, John had his pick of characters from the special, so he took on Boba Fett, of course. Our discussion includes answers to burning questions: Exactly which Moebius designs propelled the look of “The Faithful Wookiee”? How does one animate a helmeted character with no eyes or mouth? Why do all the characters, including Han, Leia, and Luke, only have 4 fingers on each hand? 


John Celestri just released a fascinating book with the animation script and character model sheets. Check it out and purchase it here!
