The Book of Boba Fett(Review)[Fan Fare Fridays]


The best way to describe The Book of Boba Fett is to think of it more of a western set in space. With that mindset, you will be more apt to enjoy it more and be patient as it sets the stage for what is to come. It does take some time to build up as we get 4 episodes full of back story, but the last 3 episodes makes the wait worth it.

The series tells how Boba Fett establishes his rule on Tatooine as the new daimyo of the city of Mos Espa. Not everyone is willing to accept him, especially with his new way of doing things. Instead of ruling in fear, he wants to rule with respect. Which doesn’t quite jive with the inhabitants who want to continue doing things the way they are used to. We also get some backstory which explains how Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc Pit and became the man he is today. I remember ever since Return of the Jedi how there were speculation and rumors that Boba Fett somehow survived being eaten by the Sarlacc, and this series shows exactly how he did that. Also if you are wondering how Boba went from cold blooded bounty hunter to wanting to be a ruler, the first four episodes explore that as well.

It is the 5th episode that changes the tone of the series, and it does not even feature Boba Fett. Instead we are back with our friend the Mandalorian as we see him deal with the loss of his little buddy Grogu, as well as learning to master the Darksaber. From there, it gets really interesting as Mando links up with Fett who is dealing with a war, and he needs soldiers to help maintain his position. The 6th episode is the best episode of the series as the favorites such as Ahsoka and Grogu return, as well the live action debut of the bounty hunter Cad Bane. He is portrayed as the gunslinger of the series, and is pretty badass if you ask me.

The finale ramps things up as we see the final confrontation between Boba Fett and Cad Bane, as well as the battle for Mos Espa. There is an awesome sequence where we see Fett’s pet Rancor absolutely rampage through the city. He just goes nuts, and the way he ends up finally getting subdued is absolutely adorable. The series ends being wrapped in a nice bow, and there is a post credit sequence if you are curious of the fate of a certain marshal.

As a whole, I would say the series has it entertaining moments, but not the best Star War series we seen. If you are a Boba Fett fan or one of those that watch everything Star Wars related, then yeah check it out. If anything, it is worth watching if you are curious of the set up for The Mandalorian Season 3.
