The Book of Boba Fett Review


source: IMDb website

A follow-up show to Disney’s Mandalorian seasons one and two, The Book of Boba Fett follows the feared bounty hunter after his demise in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi to the Sarlacc pit. 

The season opens on Jabba’s Palace, a massive kingdom now in the hands of Boba Fett, played by Temuera Morrison. This show depicts the comeback of Boba Fett, and how he came to be the fair ruler of Mos Espa through a seven episode season mostly focused on his efforts to clean up the planet of Tatooine. This show continues the trend of involving guest directors, with Bryce Dallas Howard, Dave Filoni, Steph Green, and Kevin Tancharoen each directing episodes alongside main director, Robert Rodriguez. Although there were a couple of slow moments, this season had an amazing story and had great cinematography all the way through. 

[SPOILERS AHEAD] The Book of Boba Fett takes an odd turn about halfway through the season, opting for episodes focused on Din Djarin (formerly seen in The Mandalorian) instead of Boba Fett. The adorable Grogu is back, along with Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Ahsoka, a former Jedi. We get to see Grogu restart his training as a Jedi after the Jedi purge during the Grand Republic era. The Mandalorian, while separated from Grogu, seeks out other members of his Mandalorian tribe, hoping to get something forged for the child. However, since he went against the rules, he got it made, but conflict arose with his former brothers in arms and he was cast from his Mandalorian tribe. Back on Ajan Kloss (home of Luke’s training academy), Din Djarin drops off his gift and Luke presents Grogu the choice of staying or leaving to go with his father figure, Din. The season ends in a high tension duel between Fett’s long time adversary, Cad Bane, a fellow bounty hunter responsible for the blaster shot dent in Fett’s helmet, along with the rival crime syndicate. The relatively short series takes us through Fett’s crime lord ruling and how the Pyke Syndicate work through the cities of Tatooine in a refreshing way, regardless of this being yet another bit of Star Wars fun that takes place on the overused sandy planet. 

While definitely not the best return of the feared bounty hunter (considering he wasn’t even in one of the episodes), it is great to see Temuera Morrison back in action. He especially enjoys not having to constantly wear his helmet for the role, calling his face “the moneymaker,” and enjoying showing off his expressions more for the people. The show has brought Morrison and his co-star Ming-Na Wen, the crime lord duo on screen together, as they’re attending plenty of events together for their characters.
