For the very first time in more than a year, Star Wars company Lucasfilm is back again with a new live-action Star Wars show, The Book of Boba Fett. Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett made his live-action appearance in season 2 of The Mandalorian.
His own show was teased in the post-credits scene of season 2 of The Mandalorian, and finally, his show, The Book of Boba Fett is airing right now.
Set after the events of The Return of the Jedi, the show follows Boba Fett and Fennec Shand (Ming Na Wen) as they try to navigate the effects of Boba taking over Jabba’s criminal empire.
The show has aired 2 episodes right now and has been quite the success since it earned better ratings than even Marvel Studios’ Hawkeye’s first week.
However, it should be mentioned that Hawkeye was the fifth MCU Disney+ project while Lucasfilm just made its second with The Book of Boba Fett. But critics and fans loved the first ep, with many appreciating Fennec and Boba’s chemistry.
The show is a delightful combination of old flashback sequences while also introducing new characters from other mediums. It’s doing it all while also continuing Boba’s story.
Even though just two out of the seven episodes have aired, viewers are already discussing, what more surprises The Book of Boba Fett will bring. This is a thing that even the stars of the show are waiting to discuss.
The Book of Boba Fett lead star Temuera Morrison sat down for an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, and during it teased some interesting developments regarding what’s to come in season 1 of the show.
While remembering season 2 of The Mandalorian’s Luke Skywalker cameo, Morrison said that his show, too, has some amazing stuff up its sleeve in the final episode. Here’s what he said:
“Yes, full of surprises. The Book of Boba ‘full of surprises’ series. Yeah, we’ve got some good stuff coming up. Ooh, wait till episode seven, wow!”
Morrison further shared some of his beloved behind-the-scenes experiences in The Book of Boba Fett and also remembered the time he met Jon Favreau during the 2009 movie Couples Retreat.
This film helped begin Jon Favreau and Temuera Morrison’s working relationship, as Favreau was then working on the MCU’s Iron Man. Morrison said:
“Sometimes, life is about relationships, and while I didn’t get to do much on Couples Retreat, I got to meet Jon. And at that time, he was prepping to direct Iron Man. So he obviously sat around a table where they said, ‘Well, Boba’s got to look like Jango [Fett], so let’s see what Tem is doing.’ So I had this wonderful opportunity to get back on this journey, this vessel, this walker, and it’s been exciting and thrilling.”
Since Lucasfilm released its first live-action Star Wars series, the studio has found quite an interesting way of bringing intriguing surprises at the end of the two seasons of The Mandalorian.
The end of season 1 revealed Din Djarin’s name, and the end of season 2 consisted of the Luke Skywalker cameo that broke the internet. So the Star Wars Disney+ shows have delivered some amazing moments in the entire history of the galaxy far far, away.
As for The Book of Boba Fett, they have begun slowly, at least, regarding the story, and made sure that fans got a good sense of who the bounty hunter is and how his attempt at taking over Jabba’s criminal galactic empire is going.
After all, we do need to warm up to the character before anything too ridiculous starts dropping. Also, the marketing campaign for the show is using the very same method of slowly building up the show.
This means that the latter half of the first season should in fact set things up for major reveals. Right now, fans are theorizing heavily about Crimson Dawn and Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra. They are sure that these two have the biggest chances of showing up in the show.
Other than this, others think that Darth Maul can be seen too. Yet others are not leaving out Mace Windu. They think that there’s a possibility that the Jedi Master could show up. Overall, The Book of Boba Fett has a lot of avenues to take the story.
And considering Temuera Morrison’s hint about something big in the finale of the show, events like these might very well be just the iceberg’s tip. But for now, fans will have to wait and follow the story for 5 more weeks until the finale day arrives on February 9.
Who knows, maybe the next 5 episodes will hint at what’s to come. But for now, Fennec and Boba have to run Tatooine before the big bad shows up. The first two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are now available to stream on Disney+.
