Resurrect, recharge, recover, maybe a touch of revenge and a ton of respect. All of these topics are key topics in “The Book of Boba Fett.” It appeared its first episode on December 29 on Disney+.
This Boba Fett is tired of the world. However, not too tired to think about taking over the criminal underworld previously ruled by Jabba and then Bib. This is where we track down the nominal error. Former royal residence of Jabba and on the roads of Mos Espa. It is here that Boba attempts to cement his position as the new ruler amid turmoil and concern after the fall of the Empire.
“The Book of Boba Fett” is full of Easter eggs. Here are a few you may have missed.
Accolade for Star Wars legends
“Return of the Jedi” debuted in 1983. Since then, fans have wondered if and how Boba Fett escaped from the Sarlacc pit. In the reconstructed progression of Star Wars Legends, Boba flies away from the pit using his jetpack. The same is found in the 1983 “Star Wars” comic #81, named “Jawas of Doom”. In the 1996 “A Barve Like That” comic, Boba also flies away from the Sarlacc with his jetpack. This time by clairvoyantly speaking with another victim inside the monster and tricking the animal into sending its weapon.
Boba’s standard start from the Sarlacc is like that of the Legends. However, in “The Book of Boba Fett,” the famed abundance stalker releases a flamethrower on his wrist gauntlet to consume the animal from within and hook its direction through the deep sandy pit. By the time it shows up, it’s built with Sarlacc goo and Tatooine sand. It’s a move towards the symbolism of his endurance found in “A Barve Like That.”
The Destruction of Jabba’s Sailing Barge
Squint, and you’ll miss the destruction of Jabba the Hutt’s remarkable sailing barge, the Khetanna, at the location of Boba Fett emerging from the Sarlacc Pit.
In the movie “Return of the Jedi”, Han Solo unintentionally knocks Boba into the Sarlacc pit. Han, Luke, Leia and their companions can be seen fighting to escape Jabba’s grasp. This turbulent battle and Jabba’s epic demise due to Leia also happened during the “sinking” of the Khetanna. Obliterated, hopeless and without a leader, it was passed on to decay on the sands above the Carkoon Pit.
In “The Book of Boba Fett”, the remaining parts of the erased riverboat should be visible behind Boba at the edge of the pit as he hooks his steering on the surface and falls onto the sand in the main episode. We’re sure the Khetanna has been knocked out of all trumps over the years by some Jawas, similar to an unconscious Boba in the main episode.
The destruction of the Khetanna is found in greater detail in Chapter 4, “The Gathering Storm”, as Boba and Fennec fly his Firespray transport over the Sarlacc’s gorge on a journey to regain his defensive layer.
These aren’t overall the droids you’re looking for, but they’re natural either way. In “The Book of Boba Fett”, two droids, in particular, stood out -8D8 and R-3X.
The previous one is a humanoid smelter droid that was recently deemed a “As a result of the Jedi” torture droid. In “The Book of Boba Fett”, 8D8 currently acts as a kind of chief servant who acquaints the guests who accompany the welcome and honor of Tatooine’s offending new ruler. The droid’s take on the “tormented screams” of the Gamorrean monitors he carries is a low-key gesture to his past evil work for Jabba. These two Gamorrean monitors are also likely the same ones who served Jabba “As a result of the Jedi”.
The other notable droid, R-3X, hails from Disney’s theme parks, specifically Galaxy’s Edge at Disney World and Disneyland. R-3X had a long history as a friendly Star Tours pilot, but most recently accepted another gig as a DJ at Oga’s Cantina at Black Spire Outpost. In “The Book of Boba Fett”, R-3X is seen playing a salesman at the Mos Espa club.
Max Rebo and a bith performer
A Tatooine bar wouldn’t be anything like this without the most well-known tunes on the planet. Thankfully, “The Book of Boba Fett” brings back two of the cosmic system’s most popular artists.
Inside the Mos Espa stage, benefactors imbibe and bet. An amazing remix of the “Star Wars Theme/Cantina Band” artwork is also performed by Max Rebo and Figrin D’an. Max is a blue-cleaned, elephant-like animal who was rightly assumed dead after he continued to be seen on Jabba’s sail barge. However, it seems that he is in perfect health near Figrin D’an. Musician Bith – a former member of famed Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes – performed “Bar Band” in Mos Eisley’s notable scene in “A New Hope.” Figrin D’an does well and plays dandy tunes at the Mos Espa saloon with Max Rebo.
