The creator of Cobb Vanth is upset over not receiving credit on the Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett.
Author Chuck Wendig has had a hand in expanding the canon of the Star Wars universe thanks to his Aftermath trilogy of books. In the first book, released in 2015 as a tie-in to Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, readers are introduced to Cobb Vanth, whom used the armor of Boba Fett to bring order to Tattooine sometime after the events of Return of the Jedi.
Timothy Olyphant portrayed the Star Wars: Aftermath character and first debuted in the Season 2 premiere of The Mandalorian. In the latest episode of The Book of Boba Fett, Cobb Vanth made a surprise appearance, which surprised many fans.
However, Cobb Vanth’s creator doesn’t seem too happy about a few things. In particular, he appeared to throw shade at Lucasfilm for not giving him a “Special Thanks” credit for the character’s appearance in The Book of Boba Fett. He tweeted the following:
This is not the first time in which we heard Star Wars creatives express disappointment to Lucasfilm. Just recently, original Solo directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller reflected on their experiences on the film, prior to their firing and inevitable replacement by Ron Howard.
Here is the synopsis for the Disney Plus original Star Wars series:
