Disney and LEGO: Boba Fett’s spaceship will no longer be called Slave I.

It just looks like that Disney changed the name of an iconic vehicle from the universe of Star Wars, eliminating the classic Slave I from the reference to the spaceship of Boba Fett.

The news comes from Jedi News, which pointed out how LEGO has eliminated that word from merchandising linked to the Star Wars saga and related series.

Disney and Lego rename Boba Fett’s spaceship

According to details revealed during last month’s LEGO Fan Media Days, the decision not to call again Slave I the spaceship of Boba Fett it was taken from Disney and immediately applied by LEGO in the new set dedicated to the aircraft, consisting of 478 pieces.

We will no longer call her Slave I.“Revealed LEGO Star Wars Lead Designer Michael Lee Stockwell”From now on it will be Boba Fett’s Spaceship. “

Soon everyone will abandon the classic name. There will be no announcement about it, but the sure thing is that Disney doesn’t want to use that name anymore.

While waiting for this change to be confirmed by Disney, the only hypotheses that can be made about it would suggest a departure from the term “slave”, being particularly linked to the history of African Americans reduced to slavery in the United States. Following the Black Lives Matter protests last summer, some industries had already begun to eliminate the word “slave” or “master” from their products.

A move of this type would not be new in Lucasfilm / Disney, having eliminated in the past the costume of “Slave Leia” seen in Return of the Jedi, after the accusation by some fans of being sexist and discriminating.

The other possibility could be linked to the upcoming series dedicated to Boba Fett, which will retrace part of the bounty hunter’s life and deepen his story, including his means of space transport.

The Book of Boba Fett series will arrive on Disney Plus later this year.
