After The Mandalorian Season 2’s unexpected Luke Skywalker cameo, Lucasfilm announced that The Book of Boba Fett was coming to Disney+ in the post-credit scene of the finale.
In that scene, Boba sat on Jabba the Hutt’s throne, which viewers last saw in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. After that, a whole year later, on the date of December 29, 2021, the show finally premiered and we got to know about Boba’s past as well as what he was doing on Tatooine.
For now, both of the live-action Star Wars Disney+ shows have been firmly centered on two Mandalorian bounty hunters, namely Din Djarin and Boba Fett. Both of them are very different characters and they have their own history.
This is especially true for Boba Fett, who appeared in the Star Wars Prequel trilogy, too. However, the main character wasn’t the only Star Wars OG member to show up on screen in the second episode of the show and also had a connection to Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.
In the second episode titled “The Tribes of Tatooine,” the bounty hunter went to a watering hole in the desert planet and found a rowdy crew of speeder bike gangs abusing their clients.
Boba dealt with the crew and took their speeders. And here’s the great part- The two clients he saved from the speeder gang are friends with Luke Skywalker.
Camie and Fixer, as well as Biggs Darklighter, were Luke Skywalker’s Tosche Station friends. They showed up in multiple scenes with got ultimately cut from Star Wars: A New Hope film in 1977.
Camie was portrayed by Koo Stark, and Fixer was played by Anthony Forest. Know that Fixer is also called Laze Loneozner. Also, these two Tatooine teens didn’t show up in the final cut of the movie. But they have been mentioned, referenced, and seen in multiple Star Wars comics and books throughout the decades.
They ultimately got married to each other after Biggs and Luke left Tatooine. So technically, Mandy Kowalski as Camie and Skyler Bible as Fixer in The Book of Boba Fett is their first onscreen official canon appearance.
These two characters are quite a deep cut in the lore of a galaxy far, far away. But they are an example of Jon Favreau’s dedication to the history of the franchise.
Not to mention that they are also a great example of masterfully delivering nostalgia and fan service while still telling fresh, new stories along with familiar settings and characters.
After all, right from that opening crawl in Star Wars: A New Hope, the franchise has been presented as history. This is the reason the vast disconnect between the three trilogies has been a major issue with the franchise.
But now, two seasons of The Mandalorian coupled with The Book of Boba Fett have been able to seamlessly connect all the three trilogies while also giving fans the love they deserve.
It’s very possible that Luke’s friends appearing from the Original Trilogy might just be the tip of the iceberg regarding Skywalker-related cameos. Recent rumors mention that Harrison Ford has filmed a short cameo for The Book of Boba Fett as well.
And just from a pure story perspective, this would be interesting to see due to their numerous past conflicts. Regardless of cameos coming in the future, it’s highly unlikely that Fixer and Camie are going to be the last familiar people we see in The Book of Boba Fett.
But for now, even though Luke Skywalker didn’t make it to Tosche Station, BobaFett surely did. The first two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are now streaming on Disney+.
