These scenes illustrated what Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) went through following his defeat and the loss of his armor, before leaping into the present, where he and his fellow killer Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) have took control of the criminal empire once chaired by Jabba the Hutt.
“Jabba ruled with fear,” Boba Fett told him. “I intend to govern with respect.”
What respect means in the Tatooine wilderness remains to be seen, but the duo almost immediately face an assassination attempt, so resting on their laurels and throne, don’t appear to be in the cards.
Frankly, the premiere didn’t contain a lot of clues as to where the overall story is heading, but with such an abundance of action and âStar Warsâ nostalgia, it didn’t really need to be.
More than anything, “The Book of Boba Fett” makes it seem like a bunch of people weaned from “Star Wars” have the chance to essentially turn the action figure game as kids into a real series. . For anyone with a similar connection to these stories, the almost overwhelming temptation is to dive right in with them, until you can almost feel the sand of Tatooine between your toes.
âThe Boba Fett Bookâ is streaming on Disney +.
