Could The Book Of Boba Fett Feature The Return Of Ewoks?

If you know "Star Wars" at all, you're familiar with the desert planet of Tatooine. It's hot and dry and full of sand. There are many creatures there, some of them fuzzy like Banthas. What there are not, however, are Ewoks. At least none that we've seen so far. Perhaps that will change, according to a comment from "The Book of Boba Fett" star Temuera Morrison. Ming-Na Wen, who plays bounty hunter and Boba Fett second Fennec Shand, and Morrison took part in an interview with Buzzfeed Celeb (via C...

A metal cover of 'Maniac,' you know, from Flashdance

Leo Moracchioli never fails to entertain, and I guess Boba Fett has reminded us all that Jennifer Beals in Flashdance too.

The Mandalorian Vs. Boba Fett, Round 4: Cuddle Edition

Another episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" is upon us, and that once again means it's time to dig into the series and its "The Mandalorian" companion to decisively determine which bounty hunter is better. There are still many episodes left and a number of factors to weigh, but this week we're going to explore an often overlooked attribute that shows the softer side of the pair ... how much they embrace the cuddlier things in life. That's right, we're looking at which armor-clad gent is more incl...

Is The Book Of Boba Fett Done With Flashbacks Now?

"The Book of Boba Fett" just set up a major confrontation with "The Gathering Storm," the fourth episode in "The Mandalorian" spin-off series that has further expanded the "Star Wars" universe. We've been expecting some kind of face-off between Boba Fett and at least one of the crime families in Mos Espa since the former bounty hunter chose to take over Jabba the Hutt's territory, and it's clear there's a war coming with the Pyke Syndicate. But what we weren't expecting quite so soon, like the s...

The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4 Finally Answered One Of The Big Questions From The Mandalorian

When Fennec Shand was left for dead on Tatooine in "The Mandalorian," many fans of the elite mercenary were rightfully disappointed. Her appearance in the episode "The Gunslinger" felt like her first and last — actress Ming-Na Wen even confirmed that her role as Fennec was originally limited to one appearance. Wen recalled being "really persistent" over Fennec's possible survival. It helped that, in the final scene of "The Gunslinger," a faceless figure approaches Fennec's body, leaving the door...

Here's All The Concept Art From The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4

This article contains spoilers for the latest episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."Last week, we hit the official midway point for the inaugural season of "The Book of Boba Fett." Episode 4, "The Gathering Storm," lives up to its title as a table-setter that does the important work of looking ahead to the final two climactic episodes and putting the pieces into place for what's to come. But that doesn't make this episode nothing more than "filler" or wheel-spinning. Far from it, as we once again s...

The Yuzzum Reference In The Book Of Boba Fett Explained

Chapter 4 of "The Book of Boba Fett" is here and it brings with it a number of reveals. We get more of Boba's backstory, a lot of hints about where all of this might be headed, and, as is so often the case with "Star Wars" things, plenty of in-universe references. One seemingly throwaway line, however, actually connects to a pretty unique part of the franchise's past, specifically "Return of the Jedi." But the reference in question is about something pretty specific, and it's quite tongue-in-che...

If You Loved The Action In The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4, Thank Kevin Tancharoen

This article contains spoilers for the new episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."Say what you will about the live-action "Star Wars" movies, but they've rarely failed to deliver the goods when it comes to top-notch action scenes and spectacle. Even "The Phantom Menace," for all of its flaws, gave us the exhilarating podracing sequence and a kick-ass lightsaber duel between Darth Maul, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Qui-Gon Jinn.That maxim held true when Boba Fett made his triumphant return in "The Mandalorian...

The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4 Teases Return Of A Familiar Character

The fourth episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" has arrived on Disney+, and "The Gathering Storm" certainly sets the stage for a major confrontation between the titular bounty huter and the Pyke Syndicate. Now that the flashbacks brought upon by Boba Fett's healing sessions in the bacta tank seem to have concluded, the focus is squarely on the present day story. In fact, if the ending of this episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" is any indicator, it (literally) sounds like the series might be circli...

The Musician Cameo In The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4 You Might Have Missed

Warning: spoilers ahead for "The Book of Boba Fett." Proceed with caution."The Book of Boba Fett" is back with a brand new episode this week and it was arguably the most consequential episode of the show to date. Chapter 4 of the "Star Wars" series helps fill in some of the final gaps in the backstory for Temuera Morrison's Boba, with the series now crossing over with the timeline of "The Mandalorian." We see what happened after Boba found Fennec when she was left for dead in the desert. What's ...

The Book Of Boba Fett Delivers An Origin Story Before 'The Gathering Storm'

Directed by noted TV director Kevin Tancharoen, the fourth episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" goes back into the timeline to offer answers to things we already knew, but delivers them in a satisfying way. The vast majority of the episode plays in the past, with Boba Fett dedicated to retaking his ship from the clutches of Bib Fortuna in Jabba's Palace. Along the way, he is able to save Fennec Shand (after her run in with the Mandalorian and Toro Callican) and, after stealing the ship back, Boba ...

The Real-Life Inspiration For The Book Of Boba Fett's Wacky Biker Gang

If there's one maxim that holds true for "Star Wars," even all these decades after George Lucas first brought his fever dream of a space opera to audiences worldwide and altered pop culture forever, it's this: no matter how big a "Star Wars" fan you may be, you just never know what you're going to see every time a filmmaker puts their own spin on the material. In the years since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jump-started this new era for the franchise, we've encountered an all-out cornucopia of ...

Temuera Morrison Would Love To Play The Other Clones In Live-Action

Whatever your thoughts on "The Book of Boba Fett" (and I've read a whole lot of those thoughts on social media), you have to love Temuera Morrison as the titular character. Having played Jango Fett in the prequels, he was already a "Star Wars" icon. Fans were excited when he showed up in "The Mandalorian." Boba and Jango are clones, so there was really no other choice for casting that role. It's not just that we saw him years ago in the films. It's that we've now seen his face for years as all t...

How Calamari Ended Up On Tatooine In The Book Of Boba Fett: An Investigation

This article contains spoilers for the latest episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."Like any story told in the sprawling "Star Wars" universe, "The Book of Boba Fett" has left us with plenty of intriguing details and questions to ponder. Chief among them remains the fascinating tension at the core of this new spin-off series, particularly when it comes to depicting Boba Fett as the ruthless bounty hunter of the original trilogy versus this new "Man with a code" version who clearly has rules, a cons...

The Mandalorian Vs. Boba Fett, Round 3: Potential Spin-Off Edition

With the third episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" now available, we're starting to get a more well-rounded picture of what his life will be like now that he's grown out of his Bounty Hunter S. Thompson phase and settles into his role as a fledgling mafioso. Just as "The Book of Boba Fett" series spun off from "The Mandalorian," this additional depth is also starting to help us see what potential properties Lucasfilm could (or should) spin-off from this new world. What new genres might we have in...

The Book Of Boba Fett Features A Mandalorian Character Cameo You Probably Missed

Tatooine built a reputation as a crime-ridden, no-name wasteland of a planet located in the Outer Rim of the galaxy, light-years away from anything interesting. Well, that's what "Star Wars" wants us to think, anyways. The reality, however, is that the desert world is home to two of the most powerful Jedi Knights to ever live (one of whom, you may remember, went on to become one of the most powerful Sith lords), a frequent stop for one of the most famous rogues/smugglers/Rebel leaders, the adopt...

The Book Of Boba Fett Just Added A Fantastic Character Actor To The Star Wars Franchise

Maybe Boba took his stapler... The "Star Wars" television shows have cast loads of great character and voice actors, including Matt Berry, Phil LaMarr, Amy Sedaris, Richard Ayoade, and more. Now "The Book of Boba Fett" has added another incredible character to the galaxy far, far away: Stephen Root! Root, perhaps best known for playing the nebbish Milton in "Office Space," played a water-monger named Lortha Peel, petitioning Fett (Temuera Morrison) at Jabba's former palace. If you were pointing ...

The Nikto Sand Riders In The Book Of Boba Fett Explained

"The Book of Boba Fett" continues to roll right along on Disney+, with Chapter 3 of the "Star Wars" series arriving this week. With an odd number of episodes, seven to be exact, we're pretty close to the halfway point, and lots of pieces are being moved around the chessboard that will come into play in the final stretch. One particular group that warrants discussion is the Nikto sand riders, who have been causing trouble for Boba Fett (particularly in flashbacks). So, we're here to go over what ...

The Book Of Boba Fett Just Explained What Happened After Jabba's Death

This article contains spoilers for the new episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."Advance apologies to all the Bib Fortuna fans out there, but how the heck did Jabba's former majordomo — a sycophant who fell hook, line, and sinker for Luke Skywalker's Jedi mind trick in "Return of the Jedi" — first seize and then maintain control of his recently deceased boss' criminal empire on Tatooine? It's a question that's been hanging in the air since Boba Fett casually strolled into Jabba's palace, shot Bib d...

"The Book of Boba Fett."Disney+ Demand for "The Book of Boba Fett" is far behind where it was for "The Mandalorian" after its debut. While it hasn't enjoyed the rapid success of its predecessor, demand for "Boba Fett" is still high. Disney is developing a dozen new "Star Wars" shows for Disney+. Disney+'s latest "Star Wars" live-action series, "The Book of Boba Fett," debuted on December 29. In the nearly two weeks since then, it has yet to catch on with audiences in the same way that...

Imagine yourself as a little kid playing with a lightsaber, and then getting to be a part of the "Star Wars" universe. "Boba Fett" stars Ming-Na Wen and Temuera Morrison recently spoke to THR about what starring in the Disney+ series means to them.

Temuera Morrison Teases A Major Surprise In The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 7

Chalk it up to being a victim of one's own success. Although the overall success of the movies speak for themselves, "Star Wars" is rapidly expanding its empire to Disney+ streaming shows and that, inevitably, comes with a few bumps along the way. "The Mandalorian" mostly avoided any of those major obstacles, achieving instant popularity through the fun dynamic between Pedro Pascal's brooding, too-cool-for-school Din Djarin and the adorable (verging on too cute) Baby Yoda.

Here's Why We See Boba's Face So Much In The Book Of Boba Fett

The long-awaited "Star Wars" series "The Book of Boba Fett" has released its second episode, and even as far back as Boba Fett's (Temuera Morrison) appearance in "The Mandalorian," we've seen him without his helmet on. That was in stark contrast to Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal), whose face we only saw in tiny, powerful moments. Why are we seeing so much of Temuera Morrison's face? (This is not a complaint. I'm very happy to see his face, Sarlacc scars and all!) In "The Book of Boba Fett," we're lear...

Star Wars TV Is Finally Giving Tusken Raiders The Spotlight, And It's About Time

As a near-lifelong "Star Wars" fan, I've found that enjoying the galaxy far, far away gets exponentially harder as years pass. My identity as a woman of color, as well as the constraints that come with it, staunchly influences my opinion on everything. So I've found that my appreciation for "Star Wars" — a decidedly-white franchise that has only recently begun seeking out minority voices — now hinges exclusively on how said voices are elevated (or -- let's be real -- ignored).Lucasfilm has a pre...
