A notorious Star Wars bounty hunter’s ship has been renamed and will go forward in a galaxy far, far away without its iconic name of Slave I. News originally broke in June that Disney had requested the name change for the LEGO set of Boba Fett’s ship, but did not specify why. In reveals of the packaging for the LEGO set Slave I has been dropped in favor of Boba Fett’s Starship as a placeholder.

When asked why they were dropping the Slave I one of the LEGO designers had originally said, "Everybody is. It’s probably not something which has been announced publicly but it is just something that Disney doesn’t want to use any more."

Now the rebrand of the ship has been revealed to be Firespray. Originally, the name was the model classification of Slave I, which was a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft.

According to Slash Gear, the new name appeared in a canonical Marvel comic book called Star Wars: War of the Bounty Hunters, Jabba the Hutt #1. Events in the issue takes place after The Empire Strikes Back and before Return of the Jedi.The cover of the issue shows Fett with his notorious ship.

According to a press release, the covers of the comics in the series display showcase "the underworld’s most dangerous hunters" and "dynamically depicts them alongside their legendary ships." The list includes:

· Bossk and The Hound’s Tooth
· Boba Fett and Firespray
· IG-88 and IG-2000
· Zuckuss and The Mist Hunter
· Valance Beilert and The Broken Wing
· Dengar and The Punishing One

In the story, Han Solo, who at the time is frozen in carbonite, is stolen from Boba Fett by Crimson Dawn, the gang from the Star Wars movie Solo.

Boba Fett first appeared in the widely panned Star Wars Christmas Special, but gained popularity following his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. Following his supposed demise in the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi, it was revealed in the Disney+ series, The Mandalorian that Fett, had survived on the desert planet of Tatooine. His ship, Slave I, appears in The Empire Strikes Back, Attack of the Clones and The Mandalorian and will likely feature in the character’s new spinoff series, The Book of Boba Fett.

Recently, Disney has warned parents that some of the company’s older films contain racial stereotypes and placed those movies off limits to Disney+ users under 7 years old. Rides in the Disney theme parks have also been updated to remove racial stereotypes and references online social justice warriors have found to be problematic. A previous plan to remove "Slave Leia" merchandise from stores, depicting Carrie Fisher’s character in a metal bikini that she wore in Return of the Jedi was scrapped.

Earlier this year, actress Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian by Disney owned Lucasfilm, after she posted what some deemed controversial social media posts because of their conservative messaging.
