‘The Book Of Boba Fett’ Takes Us Back To Tatooine’s Underworld In Epic First Trailer

By News Creatives Authors , in Business , at November 1, 2021

The first trailer for The Mandalorian spinoff The Book Of Boba Fett dropped today and while it doesn’t give us a lot to go off of, it sure looks great. “I’m not a bounty hunter,” Star Wars’ most famous bounty hunter declares as the trailer opens. Color me intrigued.

The show picks up after Boba Fett and his sharp-shooter sidekick, Fennec, split off from Mando and Baby Yoda and headed to Tatooine.

In a clip at the end of The Mandalorian’s second season, we see Boba take Jabba the Hutt’s throne, setting up the story for The Book Of Boba Fett. The trailer gives us a glimpse into the Star Wars underworld, and a crime operation that Fett hopes to bend to his will.

Unlike Jabba, Boba Fett doesn’t want to rule with fear. He wants to rule with respect. “Why speak of conflict,” he says, “when cooperation can make us all rich?”

Sounds like something straight out of A Beautiful Mind.

I’m very excited for this show. The Mandalorian was certainly about the Star Wars underworld, but it was also an epic quest (or quests, really) that played directly into the larger Star Wars narrative. Baby Yoda was a wonderful character and his and Mando’s relationship was heartwarming and cute, but it also meant that the show was about much more than simply a wandering bounty hunter.

I’m hopeful that The Book Of Boba Fett will stick to the politics and intrigue of the underworld, maybe even touching on some stuff from Solo that never got resolved, like the big reveal at the end of that film. But even if it doesn’t, I’m just happy to watch a Star Wars mafia TV show.

Temeura Morrison reprises his role a Fett for The Book Of Boba Fett (he first played Boba’s father, Jango, in the prequel films) and Ming-Na Wen stars as Fennec. The show lands on Disney Plus on December 29th. I will be reviewing weekly. Should be fun after reviewing the first two seasons of The Mandalorian.

It’s one of my top 10 upcoming sci-fi and fantasy shows. If you’re curious about the rest of that list, check it out right here.
