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...

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. "The Book of Boba Fett...

Every Star Wars Easter Egg You May Have Missed In The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 2

Episode 2 of "The Book of Boba Fett" is an interesting one. I'm still not sure how this guy is a crime lord but also a really awesome guy, or that we needed this show after "The Mandalorian," but here we are.

After Over 40 Years, Boba Fett Is Finally A Star Wars Lead

Though he now insists he's #NotABountyHunter, Boba Fett has been knocking about the galaxy — and, yes, bounty hunting — since 1978 when he first appeared in a different color scheme and in animated form in the notorious "Star Wars Holiday Special" (now in 4K).

The Book Of Boba Fett TV Spots: The Return Of The Bounty Hunter

Well, at least some "Star Wars" characters don't seem to mind the sand all that much. After meeting his (apparent) end in the vast desert of Tatooine at the hands, er, tentacles of a sinister Sarlacc, Boba Fett has more reason than most to hate the planet, its inhabitants, and sand in general. Though many "Legends" stories sought to tell the story of Boba's post-"Return of the Jedi" fate over the years, resurrecting him so as not to waste the mystique and aura that arose after his deceptively br...

The Book Of Boba Fett Will Explore 'Power Vacuum' Left By Jabba The Hutt, Jon Favreau Says

The typical "Star Wars" workplace isn't really that different from any of our own. The old boss -- in this case, that ol' slime ball Jabba the Hutt -- made an abrupt and unexpected exit at the hands of Luke Skywalker and his pals partway through "Return of the Jedi." Though the film continued on to much more pressing matters concerning, you know, the overthrow of an evil imperial regime and all that, that clearly must have left Jabba's entire operation in shambles. One can only imagine how many ...

Jabba the Hutt inspires human-style eyes for robots

In humanoid robots, artificial eyes are often referred to as dolls’ eyes because they are made from glass or acrylic. This is a problem as their pupils don’t respond like living human eyes do. Pupils are important as they emit visual signals that we subconsciously interpret as emotions and understanding. For many scientists working in robotics, replicating human qualities is an important part of our work. To that end, my research is the first to create robotic eyes that react to both light and e...

The Spider In The Book Of Boba Fett Trailer Explained (It's Weirder Than You Think)

The Book Of Boba Fett Is Finally Giving Us A Star Wars Crime Story, And It's About Time

The brand new trailer for "The Book of Boba Fett" series that Disney+ dropped this morning gave us a good idea of what to expect from the "Mandalorian" spin-off, namely a gangster epic full of political intrigue ala "The Godfather." In the Original Trilogy, the character of Boba Fett was something of a blank slate, merely a stock bounty hunter character with a cool outfit and laconic demeanor. Now that he speaks -- and frequently takes his helmet off! -- in the form of Temeura Morrison, we're ge...
