Boba Fett has finally arrived. This was one of the most anticipated Disney shows of these times. People were impatiently waiting for the first episode CHAPTER 1: STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND.
The debut episode landed on Disney plus and it has been a great holiday gift to star wars fans. As predicted before itself, the series had a kick start with a long-awaited explanation of how Boba managed to withstand the old events and how he managed his escape from the Sarlaac.
Origin of The Book of Boba Fett
The ‘Book of Boba Fett’ is a very popular American television series and is part of Star Wars.it was released on 29th December 2021 on Disney plus Hotstar. It is expected that an episode of the series will be released every week until 9th of February 2022. Thus the first season of the series comprises around seven episodes.
It is the second live-action series by Star Wars, the first being the wildly popular and successful Man Delorean. The whole series is centered around the fictional character Boba Fett. he is a well-armored bounty hunter and was featured first in the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special. His voice is done by Don Francks. He was portrayed first in 2D animation.
The Boba Fett character was meant to be part of an army of troopers which were also known as Super Troopers. The plan was to build a hundred of these suits to have them be the empire upgraded stormtroopers. But because of budget problems, the idea of the army didn’t work. From that, they decided to make a different type of character, turning it into a bounty hunter. They redesigned the appearance and from that time the character became one of the most beloved characters in all of cinema, not just star wars
Even though the character only had four lines of dialogue in the original trilogy and six minutes and 32 seconds worth of screen time, he became one of the most popular characters in the Star Wars franchise. As it is known that, the character would spark one of the coolest aspects of the star wars universe – The Mandalorians. By the time of the galactic civil war, Boba Fett was known as one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy.
The First Episode
The latest series is taking place across two different periods. One is alongside The Mandalorian and Ahsoka and the other happens immediately after the events of Return of the Jedi.
The episode starts in the Halls of Jabba’s palace and depicts that it is no longer thriving like the same it used to be. The halls are empty and there we see our armored hero in a Bacta tank with a tube in his mouth similar to how we saw Luke when he was recovering during The Empire Strikes Back.
Thus it explains why the character has few scars on his face and why he is looking better than he did in The Mandalorian.
Boba Fett is played by Temuera Morrison after his explosive performance in The Mandalorian. He first did the role of Jango, father of Bobba in Attack of Clones.
Fennec shand, the right arm of Boba, is played by Ming- Na Wen. She also played Melina May in Marvel’s Agents of Shield.
In the series, in the flashback scenes, we also see the moment from the attack of the clones. Here we can see Bobba picking up his father’s helmet. Helmets and their importance are laced throughout the episode.
“Jabba ruled with fear, I intend to rule with respect,” he proclaims in one shot. He was being attacked by a bunch of goons and was engaging in a low-stakes scuffle.
The rest of the episodes of Book of Boba Fett seem like they’ll be depicting the stories of filling in Bobas missing years with the Tuskans and also his rise as a new kind of power in Tatooine’s political and criminal world.
The baddest bounty hunter in the galaxy has come an extremely long way since his very brief appearances in the original Star Wars trilogy. Even with his minimal screen time, the mystique and look of the character resonated with so many people that he quickly became a fan favorite.
Anyway, there are mixed opinions about the latest episode. Some opine that the action scenes are slow and seem mechanical. Some others enjoyed Boba rebuilding the underworld with a new philosophy.
Star war fans hope that future episodes will reveal the dynamic Bobba and his magical performances.
