Who is Cad Bane?
He is expected to the production of Star Wars in live-action for years now. And his arrival in the series The Boba Fett Book makes sense. Cad Bane is a bounty hunter created in 2008 by George Lucas and Dave Filoni for the purposes of the series The Clone Wars. Dubbed by Corey Burton, the character, from his very first appearance (in the season 1 finale), made a strong impression. George Lucas and Dave Filoni offer spectators a lawless mercenary, of hallucinating perseverance and a disproportionate talent. Cad Bane is presented as one of the best bounty hunters in the entire galaxy. He’s even able to compete with Jedi and gave Obi-Wan a hard time on the show. The Clone Wars.
From planet Duro, he offers his services to the highest bidders. His ruthlessness pushes him to accept the worst missions. His lack of morality thus turns him towards clients like the Separatists or the Hutt clan. During The Clone Wars, Cad Bane specializes in capturing Jedi and offers a whole array of gadgets capable of countering their abilities. The character recently reappeared in the series The Bad Batchwhere he crossed paths with Fennec Shand.

The team loves Cad Bane, and I really think the fans do too. He brings some serious badass sensibility to Star Wars. He’s a lethal and ruthless bounty hunter, and you see that right away in the episode. Unlike Boba Fett, Cad takes no prisoners.
In any case, his arrival in The Boba Fett Booklets hangs some beautiful promises concerning the end of this season 1. And we have can’t wait to see the confrontation between Din Djarin, Boba Fett, and Cad Bane!
