Boba Fett: A New Threat is a 2004 children's science fiction book by Elizabeth Hand set in the Star Wars galaxy at the beginning of the Clone Wars. This sequel to Boba Fett: Hunted was published by Scholastic Press. The book takes place 2.5 years after Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, and 19.5 years before Episode IV: A New Hope.

In August 2008, the first three books in this series were repackaged as a Borders exclusive hardcover edition. The book is listed as "Part I" and it is expected that the second three books will receive similar treatment.


Young Boba Fett continues to grow as a bounty hunter in service of Jabba the Hutt. As he returns with his latest kill, he is immediately sent out again on his most dangerous mission ever. The Republic has secretly hired Jabba's bounty hunters to capture or assassinate key members of the Separatist's leadership. At their request, Jabba sends Boba Fett after Wat Tambor. The Techno Union representative is holed up in a fortress on the planet of Xagobah. His fortress also happens to be under siege by the Jedi and the Clone Trooper army. Despite this, Jabba still wants to collect the bounty for himself. Boba must face many dangers to capture Wat Tambor, but little does he know that an unknown new threat guards the Separatist – General Grievous!
