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 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 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 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 ...

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...
