The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

Alright everyone, first episode releases tonight/tomorrow morning, depending on where you are in the world.

Teasers and trailers have shown a little of what happened to him from falling into the pit to him showing up in The Mandalorian, but how much will we see? Just the aftermath after escaping the Sarlacc? Or the actual escape too? It will take place completely in the 5+ years that passed between RotJ, and Jabba's death, and The Mandalorian, barring flashbacks, but I wonder if the final episode will have a more direct connection to season 3 of The Mandalorian.

Well, now we know how he got out of the Sarlacc, punched then burned his way out. Seems he isn't totally healed from his whole ordeal either.

Is shand's answer to everything "should I kill?"?

There are only meant to be six episodes, right? I like how we’re essentially getting two stories for the price of one, as it were.

I also like how they’re continuing to give the Tuskens more nuance. This group were dressed somewhat differently, for instance. I expect he’ll earn their respect and become part of their tribe, which will explain why he was dressed (almost) like them and wielding their weapons when he caught up with Mando on Tython.

Yep it's like they've thought about it in terms of story. Those ghadaffi sticks are based on RL Fijian weapons.

I'm guessing their darker cloaks are to tie into how he was dressed when we first see him in The Mandalorian, but it is good to see more variety in the Tuskans.

Letting someone take your helmets away for servicing seems excessively trusting. If they haven't had trackers and listening devices installed I'd be surprised.

So, in diplomatic terms, the Mayor sending a proxy is clearly a calculated insult, intended to see how far they can push this new crime lord. However, in storytelling terms, it seems like they may be keeping the Mayor's identity from the viewers deliberately, presumably because it's someone we'll immediately recognise. Any guesses as to who?
 




That was a good first episode and answered a lot of questions without going too in-depth. Seeing just enough of how he got out of the Sarlacc and how the Jawa got his armor was a good start. And despite all you hear about them being Tusken "Raiders", it is humans we see doing the raiding and not the Tuskens. And that raid asks the question of to which group or crime boss does that painted symbol belong? I have not done the spoiler and easter egg readings yet, so I don't know if it is obvious or for a new enemy not yet met.

It seemed to me that Fett had some idea as to what was meant, while shand may not have.

Also looks like Mos Espa has a free-running gang.

Fett's comments about ruling through respect instead of fear made me recall Iron man's quote "Is it better to be feared or respected?"

I think in Fett's case, part of his choosing to go with Respect (for now) is due to his not being fully healed and avoiding the "New boss same as the old boss" trope

We're getting a lot of backstory in this series, it seems, and at least part of it seems to involve Tatooine's criminal gangs (the raid on the moisture farm). I'm thinking Fett's motivation here isn't just "go back somewhere familiar and become someone powerful".

Maybe during his time with the Tuskens he got to really see what the Hutt gangs were doing to everyone else on the planet, and what he's actually trying to do is to take apart these organisations from the top down.

Was anyone else thrown by the American accents of the twi'leks in this episode? Most of them tend to have fake French accents (with the only other exception I can think of being Hera). Not really complaining. Just making an observation.

Actually, I was thrown by the French accents in the Bad Batch episode when they featured Hera's family, because I hadn't particularly associated it with twi'leks before then.

Haven't really watched the cartoons but what accent did Bib Fortuna have?

His accent has always been sort of indeterminate. But Ayla Secura’s was French, as was Hera’s dad and pretty much every other twi’lek shown in the movies and cartoons.
