The Book Of Boba Fett Finale Will Change Fans' Minds, Ming-Na Wen Teases

We're about halfway through "The Book of Boba Fett" season 1, and if there's one thing everyone seems to agree on, it's that the show hasn't really been what they expected. From Boba teaming up with young cyborg gangs that ride around in rainbow-colored bikes to getting his own adorable pet baby rancor (one which he is absolutely going to ride one day) and taking many, many bacta baths while recalling his past with the Tusken Raiders, the "Mandalorian" spinoff series has gone in a number of surp...

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 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 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 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...

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...

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. At least in the second episode, the fighting has gone from "Xena: Warrior Princess" to something resembling real action. (I love "Xena." I'm just clear on what it is.) Let's dive into some Easter eggs, shall we?Needless to say, there are major spoilers here for "The Tribes of Tatooine." You...

The New Episode Of The Book Of Boba Fett Was Shot By One Of The Greatest Cinematographers Of All Time

"The Tribes of Tatooine," this week's episode of "The Book of Boba Fett," brought much to the table. We got more of Boba's backstory, a whole lot more of the Tatooine underworld, and a whole lot of good-looking, cinematic goods. It turns out, this is in large part due to the fact that one of the best cinematographers ever shot the episode. That man is none other than the legendary Dean Cundey.If the name is not instantly familiar to you, Cundey's resume most certainly will be. As a cinematograph...

The Mandalorian Vs. Boba Fett, Round 2: Party Edition

The second episode of the new Disney+ Star Wars series "The Book of Boba Fett" has now premiered, giving us a little more of a window into the journey of the famous bounty hunter-turned-warlord. This week, good ol' Boba takes a hot five minutes to deal with the repercussions of almost getting murdered on Tatooine before we're thrown into the past for the rest of the episode. From a plot standpoint, maybe that's disappointing (or maybe it's what you're looking for) ... but from a party standpoint...

Jabba The Hutt's Badass Lady Cousin Is 2022 Goals

This post contains minor spoilers for the latest episode of "The Book of Boba Fett."There are a few universal truths in the world of "Star Wars": Yoda was the most powerful and respected Jedi of all, Han shot first, and if you're a woman who likes "Star Wars," some cheeto-dusted jackwagon is going to compare your appearance to Jabba the Hutt at some point for merely existing. Jabba's design was based on the shape and movement of slugs, but also a real-life human being, actor Sydney Greenstreet (...

Spoilers ahead for "The Book of Boba Fett" episode two.Where the first episode of "The Mandalorian" quickly got people buzzing thanks to its unexpected little green guest star, the pilot for its spin-off series, "The Book of Boba Fett," elicited more shrugs than applause.

The Deleted Star Wars Scene That Makes A New Hope's Ending Even More Emotional

The final moments of the Battle of Yavin 4 at the end of "Star Wars" are some of the most spectacular and tense minutes in movie history. Luke Skywalker — daydreaming farm boy from Tatooine turned Rebellion pilot — is seen maneuvering his X-Wing within the narrow trenches that cover the surface of the Death Star in a desperate attempt to destroy the station. Failure means the destruction of Yavin 4 and everyone on the planet, which includes what's left of the Rebel Alliance. It's an incredibly h...

The Mandalorian Vs Boba Fett: Who's The Better Bounty Hunter?

The first episode of "The Book Of Boba Fett" has dropped on Disney+, finally giving us a deeper look into the longtime fan-favorite bounty hunter. We've seen Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) make a splash in the original "Star Wars" trilogy (before seemingly dying in the Sarlacc pit), return as Jango Fett's young cloned son in "Attack of the Clones" and "The Clone Wars," and be probably the best part of the infamous "Star Wars Holiday Special," but Boba Fett's return as a seasoned adult in "The Mand...

The secrecy surrounding " " kept many of the show's most revealing moments from being leaked ahead of time, for better or worse. Surprisingly, there wasn't much to spoil in this first episode, and it would have been nice if we got a super-sized series premiere instead of a mere 40-minute episode that served as a rather basic pilot without anything remotely resembling the major revelation at the end of the first episode of "The Mandalorian." Thankfully, the end of the first episode isn't a total ...

Who Is Winning The Book Of Boba Fett? A Star Wars Power Ranking

The first episode of "The Book of Boba Fett" is here, and while it looks to continue the blend of nostalgia and novelty set up by "The Mandalorian," it also has the potential for some "Game of Thrones"-level power struggles. By setting part of the story on Tatooine just as Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) takes over Jabba the Hutt's crime empire, "The Book of Boba Fett" is able to introduce elements of courtly drama and backstabbing, only instead of royals duking it out, it's a host of shady aliens ...
