We have finally been given the official trailer for The Book of Boba Fett, and it looks like it will be epic. Now, fans have a good idea of what to expect in the show and how things will unfold. In the teaser that came at the end of The Mandalorian season two finale, we saw Boba Fett forcefully take Jabba’s throne and wipe out Bib Fortuna and the rest of his goons.
It looks like Boba Fett will leave his life as a bounty hunter and begin a new career taking over the Star Wars underground. He seems to be more interested in the wealth that comes with it all, as he proposes to other gangs to align with him and Fennec Shand. It won’t be an easy task; there are plenty who are still loyal to Jabba and the way he ruled. But he is already off to a good start by holding Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine. As the trailer shows, there will be a few other gangs he’ll need to convince if he wants to become the top figure.
Jabba’s old captains are skeptical of Boba stepping into this new position and threaten they won’t follow or help him in his rise to glory. But he has a proposition for them to consider, and as the trailer hints, “it will be mutually beneficial.” He sees opportunity in this new position and intends to seize it, “Why speak of conflict when cooperation can make us rich?” The captains don’t respect the new leader of the Tatooine underworld, but Boba has a lot of patience with them, more so than Fennec Shand does. Will he be the good cop and Shand be the bad cop?
The Book of Boba Fett looks like it will go into his journey of taking over the Star Wars underground, but ruled in a very different way. “Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.” That is a big difference from the Rancors, Sarlacc pits, and the other tactics Jabba used to keep control. Though, there is a leak that suggests that the show will contain bigger, badder beasts than The Mandalorian.
There is always the possibility that he could be lying and intends to be just as ruthless, if not more, than Jabba the Hutt. Will it be a problem that he now sits on the throne of his former employer? Or will Boba get the respect he wants as the new leader?
Judging by the trailer, it looks like this show will be action-packed and feature many different aliens and planets. It will be exciting to see the background aliens in the spotlight this time around. Jabba’s captains and his entire operation will get more depth as we explore the ins and outs of his business.
Most importantly, this show looks like it is in good hands, and it appears to be like The Mandalorian, where it brings fans back to the original trilogy and what Star Wars was in the hands of George Lucas. The opening shot of the trailer was beautiful, especially with the BT-16 Perimeter Droid doing his rounds. Did anyone else think that Ithorian boss sounded a lot like Din Djarin?
The Book of Boba Fett premieres on Disney+ on December 29.
