Like many Star Wars fans, I like me some good armor. I too was, for a while, caught under the delusion that Boba Fett was a cool character, and it wasn’t until later in life that I realized it largely had to do with his badass armor. Like Darth Vader before him, Boba Fett first got his attention thanks to how amazing he looked (though Vader actually had the cool backstory and moral ambiguity to back him up) — the same could be said for the under-utilized Captain Phasma.
One such character that had the same air about him has been seen in the footage for Solo: A Star Wars Story. He’s seen out of focus in the cool, dutch-angled gunslinger shot, as well as up close. But who is she, and what does she mean for the plot of Solo?
Speaking with The Star Wars Show, co-writer Jon Kasdan revealed his connection to Solo and Co.
“To understand who Enfys Nest is, you have to understand who Woody Harrelson plays, who is a character named Beckett, who is a highly trained, very lethal criminal. He’s a real pro who is into big jobs. And he runs a crew. But one of their competitors is a more pirate-like gang, and the leader of that gang is Enfys Nest.”
Sounds like a true Boba Fett character, but it’s difficult to tell how big a role she’ll play. Will he perhaps just play a role in the first act of the film, or will he be someone who Beckett squares off against on a few occasions in the film? It’s hard to say, but I’m crossing my fingers that she at least does more than both Phasma and Boba Fett combined.
What do you think of these details? Do you think this character will do much in the flick? Let us know down below!
