The Book of Boba Fett Final Thoughts

Book of Boba Fett Final Thoughts

Obviously there wasn’t a new episode last week. The season is only seven episodes, but I hope there will be more. Be that as it may, how about some Book of Boba Fett final thoughts about season 1.

Just a quick caveat, I am going to assume if you’re reading this post then you have seen all seven episodes. This is the one, and only, spoiler warning. Stop now if you are behind or haven’t watched the series yet.

My Thoughts Overall

If you’ve read each of my episodic write ups then you should know by now that I did enjoy the series. The first episode is a little slow but things did ramp up quickly. It didn’t have quite the draw The Mandalorian had but there isn’t that “baby yoda” appeal. I feel like Disney expected that.

There are people that said to me the show is “confusing” or they “didn’t get it”. I can understand that. This series seems tailored more toward a narrower fan base. There are subtle references to all the movies, in all the trilogies. If you’re not quite as obsessed astute as me, then I’m sure you missed those minor details.

I do feel like The Mandalorian was featured too much during the second half of the season. It took away from the focus of the series and, essentially, turned the series into “The Mandalorian Season 2.5”. I’m also not a fan of the “hover moped gang”; it was a waste of Sophie Thatcher. In fact I could have done with less of the “mod squad” and more of Black Krrsantan.

The TLJ Connection

I was never under the illusion that the Disney+ Star Wars series were going to “rewrite the sequel trilogy”. I love the sequel trilogy and I never want any of it besmirched by such an audacious act. It’s mildly amusing that there is a na├»ve group of people that were convinced Filoni and Favreau were planning to retcon Rey and Kylo. The butthurt and bullying that ensued after starwars.com officially linked Chapter 6 to The Last Jedi is embarrassing.

I really hope we see more of Black Krrsantan, although it will probably be an earlier version of him in the Kenobi series. If you’ve read any of the comics then you’re aware they do have a past. I LOVE the revamped N-1 Naboo Starfighter; it possibly foreshadows that Din Djarin might be leaving his bounty hunting life.

Also, I wouldn’t be surprised if this isn’t the last we see of Cad Bane. Some astute fans are pointing out, Cad Bane may still be alive. There are indicators on a panel on his chest. After Boba Fett kills him, one of them starts blinking. This could be some kind of defibrillator or emergency triage device, perhaps even a beacon. Cad Bane wasn’t always a lone wolf.

If he is dead, it’s like Ben Solo’s death, a little bittersweet but their death ends a chapter to allow the beginning of new adventures. I’m glad he went down squaring off with Boba Fett. I can’t think of a better death for this character.

I think another season is entirely plausible. Boba only eliminated the Pyke Syndicate presence on Tatooine, not the entire Pyke Syndicate. They could even use the flashback angle to go as far back as Empire Strikes Back to tell more of Boba’s past.

In the meantime, while we hypothesize The Book of Boba Fett’s future, we wait for the Kenobi series; which premieres May 25th on Disney+.

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 7

Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 7

Title: In The Name of Honor
Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
Runtime: 1 hour

Well folks, here we are. The final episode. Will there be more? Some people are calling The Book of Boba Fett “The Mandalorian Season 2.5”. I suppose that makes a little sense given the past two episodes. Personally I’d watch another season of Boba Fett, however a season two may depend on what happens in Season Three of The Mandalorian. Although, on the Disney+ app, Chapter 7 is labeled as “Season” finale. Hmm…

As a heads up, there is a post credits scene (between the artwork credits and the black screen credits). I’m not going to spoil it here but worth watching so you don’t have questions later.

spoiler alert!!!

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 6

Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 6

Title: From the Desert Comes A Stranger
Directed by: Dave Filoni
Runtime: 47 minutes

We are at the penultimate episode of season 1. I’m optimistic there will be multiple seasons of The Book of Boba Fett. The Pykes are feeling threatened and they are making it clear. Anyone that supports Boba Fett’s resistance will pay the consequences.

How do you follow Mando’s return??! Is there more Mando?? After last weeks amazing episode there are so many theories about this weeks episode. Will we see Luke? Grogu? Cad Bane? I can’t answer these questions for you right now. We need to that spoiler warning first!

spoiler alert!!!

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 5

Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 5

Title: Return of the Mandalorian
Directed by: Bryce Dallas Howard
Runtime: 51 minutes

Well I can’t provide you with a spoiler alert this time as the title kind of gives it away. Yes, Din Djarin is back. We knew he would be appearing at some point. The end of Chapter 4 kind of foreshadows that. Given the title of the episode it should be obvious he is the focal point of Chapter 5.

While the title kind of gives away one particular spoiler, there are things that happen that I don’t want to give away.

Therefore I am going to pause here so I can …

spoiler alert!!!

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 4

Title: The Gathering Storm
Directed by: Bryce Dallas Howard
Runtime: 48 minutes

Book of Boba Fett Chapter 4

Boba prepares for war. He is Daimyo and as Daimyo he must protect that which he wishes to keep. Will the other families help protect that which they wish to keep? In the past, Boba wants his ship, the Slave 1, and he needs help to get it back.

This episode is a little slower but it’s aptly named. I think it’s setting up for the final 3 episodes. It spends a little more time in the past but, as you will see, there is a reason for that. Regardless of the pace of this episode, I did enjoy it because it’s Star Wars. Next week is going to be interesting.

But before we get into to much more detail …

spoiler alert!!!

The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 3

Book of Boba Fett Chapter 3

Title: The Streets of Mos Espa
Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
Runtime: 38 minutes

Boba Fett’s struggle to establish himself as Daimyo continues. There are many that do not recognize his authority, and some who don’t even see him as a threat. In his past, Boba travels to Mos Eisley as proxy for his Tusken tribe to confront the Pyke Syndicate regarding their debt.

This is another fun episode, with some especially fun guest stars (not to be confused with cameos). I will get into those guest stars in a bit. Loyalties are tested and revealed and we are starting to figure out who the true antagonists are.

But first …
