Disney just released another original show titled, The Book of Boba Fett. This show was announced at the end of Disney+’s other popular Star Wars show, The Mandalorian. During the episode, ”The Rescue,” from The Mandalorian, at the end of the credits we get a scene with the bounty hunter, Boba Fett, and the famous assassin, Fennec Shand. They shoot Bib Fortuna right in the chest, taking the title daimyo from him. The first episode came out on December 29th. The long-awaited episode starts with Boba in a bacta tank (healing machine). While he is in, he starts to have memories of the past.
He starts off with a memory of an updated scene of Boba holding his father, Jango Fett’s, helmet, after getting his head decapitated by Mace Windu. Then he has another memory of escaping the Sarlacc pit, which is very exciting because this is the first time we see how he escapes the pit in live-action. This also shows how Boba lost his armor and how he survived.
For the first 11 minutes of the episode, it’s Boba’s memory with the Sand people or the more famous name for them, the Tusken raiders. Then, Boba is finally awakened by Fennec to tell him he has guests. Boba goes to his throne room where all types of important people have given him gifts since he is the new daimyo. After all the gifts he receives, he takes a trip through the city, then eventually arrives at a pub. He is shown the utmost respect there and takes his daily dues. On his way back to his palace, him and his bodyguards get ambushed. As they fight off the attackers, Boba gets injured and has to be rescued back to his bacta tank. The episode ends off there grabbing people’s attention for the next one.
So far this show has been wonderful with plot, actions and shows a different side of Star Wars most fans don’t get to see, it is a must watch for any Star Wars fan out there. The show will continue to come out with a new episode every single Wednesday until the first season has been completely released.
