Hi all, James here. I'm your Star Wars Geek in Chief. Before comics, I loved Star Wars. I still do. Since Disney+ premiered and brought us the Mandalorian, I have been in love with these other stories of the galaxy far far away. So, the question is...what about the Book of Boba Fett? How does it compare to it's Mandalorian predecessor? Let's dive in to a non-spoiler episode 1 review.
As much as I love Star Wars, I have always thought Boba Fett was over-rated. A few minutes of screen time and he is told what to do by Darth Vader (but honestly, doesn't everyone) but he is then eaten by the sarlacc in a screaming unceremoniously way. People would tell me how much they love Boba Fett and I'm like so, you like a loser? I just couldn't wrap my head around it.
Then last season of Mandalorian Boba Fett returns with Temuera Morrison and my mind began to change. I still wasn't quite sold yet. I just watched The Book of Boba Fett Episode one and I just have to say...Temuera Morrison made me think Boba Fett was a badass within the first 5 minutes of the show. Boba Fett is a surivor and is just absolutely awesome.
I think that this show is off to something amazing in it's own section of the universe. Boba really echoes his father in many ways in this show so far. Boba Fett is just a simple man trying to make his way in the universe but takes on a huge role on Tatooine and really leans into it in his own way. Helmet up kids...this show is for real and you should totally be watching it. I'll be back next week with a review of episode 2.
