Default Is Kanjiklub the Boba fett of the new Star Wars trilogy?

Everyone has given that honor to Phasma, but I've been thinking about it recently and I think whole Kanjiklub scene had more of a Boba Fett impact than Phasma.

*Brief screen time,
*Interesting and unexplored backstory,
*Swift death,
*One film appearance,


A part of me would love to see a whole heist movie that leads up to that moment. Han and Chewie avoiding the Guavian Death Gang, Kanjiklub etc.

You know, you might be onto something here. I don't think they're quite comparable, but I can see more of Boba Fett in Kanjiklub than Phasma.

I'd also say Kanjiklub is closer to Boba Fett in terms of fan reaction. Several lines from that scene have become extremely well-known and quoted within the community, and the name "Kanjiklub" is instantly recognizable. The filmmakers weren't trying to make Kanjiklub this great thing, it just caught on with fans.

Phasma fails by trying too hard to be "the new Boba Fett". Boba Fett wasn't put in the movies to become a cult figure, he just filled his purpose in the story and caught on with fans in the process. You really can't "create" a new Boba Fett intentionally, hence why no one really cares about Phasma nearly as much as Fett. Kanjiklub isn't quite there either, but their fame has happened more naturally.

Yea that's kinda what I was getting at. Not just fan reaction, but fan speculation. Who are they, what's there history? What is there relation to the SW universe. Also a niche fanbase that are hungry to see and learn more. All questions that were asked off Bob Fett.

I'll be down to see a SW film based on the rivalry between Guavian Death Gang and Kanjiklub.

SW franchise can't always be about light sabers and dog fights. Give me a martial arts heist revenge flick.
