THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT (Delayed Spoilers)

(1/31) > >>

Lurkndog:
NOTE: New Boba Fett episodes drop on Wednesdays. Please keep this thread spoiler-free until the Saturday after an episode drops. After that, all topics for the current episode are open for discussion.

Episode 01 dropped this morning.

Short version: Good, but it doesn't move as quickly as I'd hoped. It's a 50/50 mix of story and backstory. There are a ton of flashbacks covering what happened to Boba Fett after the events of ROTJ. That comes at the expense of new storyline and character introductions.

What we see this episode seems to cover maybe half of what was shown in the trailers.

I think that's all I'm going to say for now. It's good, go watch it.

Thornhammer:
I’ll agree with that assessment. I enjoyed it.

Listen carefully to what is being played in the cantina. It is subtle.

Ratman_tf:
I'm liking it so far. I would have prefered they put out more Mandalorian episodes, but I'm really liking that they can take the story in a different direction with Boba Fett. (He can be a bit more ruthless than Djin Djaren)

I remember a lot of fans wanting more of the seamier side of the Star Wars universe. With Mandalorian and now Book of Boba Fett, it must feel like a bonanza.

I really hope they don't fall into the rut Mandalorian made out of season two, which had far too much cameos for my tastes. I don't mind cameos, but I really like it when they introduce new characters insead of rehashing old ones. Star Wars has become far too small a universe, and it doesn't have to be.

HappyDaze:
First episode didn't really grab my interest, but I'm willing to give it a few more weeks to get better. Way too many non-talking characters in the first episode for my liking.

Lurkndog:
Spoiler Alert: Spoilers are now fair game for BOBF S01E01.

Someone online pointed out that the brief shot of Max Rebo in the cantina is significant in that Max Rebo was on Jabba's sail barge the day it blew up. So we have another character who survived its destruction.
