At the end of 'The Mandalorian' Season 2, in a rare post-credits scene, we saw Boba Fett return to Jabba's Palace (for the first time in roughly 5 years, since hanging there in 'Return of the Jedi') along with Fennec Shand to kill the remaining members of Jabba's gang - including a very hefty Bib Fortuna - and take his rightful place on Jabba's Throne.
We were then shown the words: 'THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT', announcing this new series....
....and longtime fans of Boba Fett who have always wanted this character to get more shine lost their fucking minds.
It's been 375 days since we saw that announcement in the form of a post-credits scene, and the premiere finally arrives tomorrow (or at 3am EST tonight if you're a nerd like me and want to stay up) on Disney+. Personally, I can't fucking wait.
It's from the team behind 'The Mandalorian' - Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and composer Ludwig Göransson - PLUS Robert Rodriguez, who directed one of the best episodes of 'The Mandalorian' ever last season, featuring the return of Boba Fett and the best action sequence in the character's history….
….and according to Rodriguez, we've seen next-to-NOTHING from this series yet, because every second of footage used in promotional material/trailers is from the first half of the first episode!
“We can’t use the second half of the first episode because it gives so much away,” he told The Hollywood Reporter.
What could that mean?! Will Boba Fett be teaming up with Din Djarin from 'The Mandalorian'?
Could we be reuniting with our little pal Baby Yoda/Grogu?!
Will the evil fan-favorite cowboy bounty hunter Cad Bane from 'The Clone Wars'/'The Bad Batch' finally appear in live-action?
What about Jabba's family and the whole Hutt Clan? There's gotta be some Hutts out there pissed about Boba taking over his palace, right? Nieces? Nephews?
Could Omega from 'The Bad Batch', the only other unaltered clone of Jango Fett in the galaxy, make an appearance?
How bout Lady Qi'ra (Emilia Clarke) from 'Solo'? They started a rivalry between her and Boba Fett in the comics earlier this year, AND she's apart of Crimson Dawn which could be a competing gang.
Considering we don't know who the main villain is for this show (if there even is a 'main villain'), I'm more inclined to believe that is what's being hidden from us rather than a companion for Boba and Fennec - but I really don't know. Thankfully Lucasfilm has this shit LOCKED DOWN spoilers-wise and to my knowledge, there's been pretty much ZERO leaks or even rumors from the set (much like with 'The Mandalorian').
I think this show is going to absolutely rule and I can't wait to recap it/speculate week-to-week with Clem in the Basement….
We'll have new episodes every Friday starting THIS FRIDAY so don't forget to subscribe to be the first to hear our breakdowns!
