The Book of Boba Fett (spoilers)

I work with Māori in my day job and have learned a lot in the past few years.


Agreed.

Interesting seeing stuff created as well.

When Boba got the speeder bikes that's Toche Station as mentioned by Luke in Episode IV. There's a deleted scene from Star Wars and those characters and background were used in BoBF last night.

Attention to detail damn.

Episode 1 of Mando was better than BoBF, episode 2 other way round.

Slower pace perhaps the flashbacks are putting a lit of world building into it. Longer episode as well.

This is one of the good things about this forum having an international list of members. Those of us sitting here in the US, and probably a good number of folks in the UK, have no knowledge about all this Pacific Islands stuff beyond what little has been in a few movies.

Pukunui is an American import. He seems to have turned into a kiwi though so we'll adopt him (ducks).

Thanks. I've been here almost half my life now.

Mum he followed me home can I keep him? Might be turning in a Jafa though have to deduct points for that.

More of this less lattes, soy/oat milk, iPhones, and Ponsonby or Epsom.

Did you find the perfect women here? It's a hard road.

Umm, he has already played Lando...
I am aware of that. I mean how old he'd be in this show. Solo takes place many years earlier.

The Mandalorian takes place around 32 years after the events of Attack of the Clones, and Boba was in, what, his early teens at that point? Still a decade or two younger than Temuera Morrison.

I guess I was thinking about the flashback scenes with the Tuskans. We are, after all, talking about two different periods a number of years apart when speaking of this show. Either way, yeah, he's aging badly (Morrison is aging well, otoh). Perhaps something about being a clone? At any rate, there's more than one reason he sleeps in a tank, I would think.

Perhaps being dunked in sarlacc digestive fluids has something to do with that. Supposedly it digests its still-living prey over a thousand years, so it could have a combination of both corrosive and preservative effects. Maybe it's still in his system, and that's why he now has to have daily bacta baths.

I think that at least part of it is that his "sleep" keeps getting interrupted.

Was ep. 2 the first reference to there having been seas once on Tatooine? It's not a detail I remember from elsewhere? (even if it's a myth of the Tuskens).

No, that comes from the videogame Knights of the Old Republic. The planet was once lush and fertile, with large oceans. The Rakata of the Infinite Empire ruled it in ancient times, but when the native population rebelled, the Rakata glassed the planet, rendering it nearly uninhabitable. The Tuskans are the descendants of those few of the native population who survived.

Aha… so the twist for this show is “post-colonial Western”.

Much stronger second episode. Once again, I shall delay un-subbing from Disney+…
 

A while back there were plans for The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic to have a big crossover event, before a certain actress got fired, and likely got Rangers cancelled because of her firing. I wonder if The Book of Boba Fett has taken the place of Rangers of the New Republic in the plan, and once we get the Ahsoka series, we will still get that team-up event? Mando, Boba, Ahsoka, and their related cast all going after Thrawn maybe? I would say needing to go and rescue Gorgu from the destruction of Luke's new Jedi Temple, but that does not happen for another 20+ years after the current events in the show.

I really hope that Disney doesn’t confirm that Kyle Ren killed Grogu when he attacked Luke’s temple. Maybe Luke (or Din) will take him back to his home planet instead!

I thought the first 1/2 of episode was good but 2nd part dragged

few thoughts
-is it me or is boba short?
-he’s in full armor and yet I’m not getting the he’s intimidating vibe.
