Boba Fett is sort of a bizarre dude.
No disrespect to the clone and bounty hunter from the Star Wars universe, however when Disney introduced The E book of Boba Fett on the finish of The Mandalorian Season 2, it was not the obvious or alluring alternative of spinoff. Star Wars prequel actor Temuera Morrison will reprise the position.
Boba Fett first appeared in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Again as a foreboding and faceless bounty hunter with tremendous cool armor. He lurks all through the masterful sequel movie and performs an integral position within the last sequence when Darth Vader decides to freeze Han Solo in carbonite. (“What if he would not survive? He is value rather a lot to me.”) Within the following movie, Fett is unceremoniously eaten by a sarlacc. A cadre of followers maintained he survived, however we did not see it on movie till The Mandalorian Season 2.

Boba Fett was “born” through the Star Wars prequel Republic Period, as a clone of Jango Fett. He was entrusted to the Mandalorian bounty hunter as cost after the senior Fett’s DNA turned the template for the Clone Wars’ eponymous military. Within the Clone Wars animated sequence, we witness Boba in search of vengeance for his father’s dying within the film, Assault of the Clones. He finally turns into a fearsome bounty hunter with the signature swimsuit, starship, and popularity that followers know so nicely. He is well-acquainted with the galaxy’s underworld and its characters.
Once we caught up with him in The Mandalorian, he was on the hunt for his armor, an exquisite reunion finally facilitated by our personal Din Djarin. Boba met Fennec Shand off-screen through the occasions of The Mandalorian Season 1; as we be taught in Season 2, Boba saved her life after she was left for lifeless within the desert. The 2 of them helped Din rescue Grogu within the Season 2 finale, however notably didn’t cross paths with Luke Skywalker — in all probability for the perfect, as a result of Boba and Luke have a fraught historical past.
From what we have seen to date, The E book of Boba Fett takes place on the acquainted sands of Tatooine, with Boba sitting on Jabba the Hutt’s throne and Fennec at his facet. The juxtaposition of Boba and Jabba as rulers is recommended to be central to this sequence. “Jabba dominated with concern,” Boba says within the trailer. “I intend to rule with respect.”
‘Star Wars: Visions’ was solid with a willingness to break the foundations
The story is being stored beneath wraps like all issues Star Wars, but it surely appears honest to anticipate an adventure-of-the-week construction very similar to The Mandalorian’s. Boba and Fennec know as many intergalactic lowlifes as Din, and possibly extra; now that they’ve energy, persons are going to pop by to name in favors, construct alliances, and search revenge.
Boba did not assume twice about killing Bib Fortuna, Jabba’s former majordomo, for the throne, however we additionally noticed him present some actual empathy in serving to Din and Grogu, which implies that this can be a man of nuance. It is solely possible Din himself may return to someway arrange The Mandalorian Season 3 and how on earth that present will go on with out Grogu.
One factor we know we’ll get for certain, although: Cool armor.
