Here’s how Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc according to Book of Boba Fett

We’ve understood that Boba Fett endured his brush with Tatooine’s Sarlacc pit for more than a year now, however we didn’t find out precisely how he got away till The Book of Boba Fett’s very first episode. The brand-new episode, which premiered on Disney Plus on Wednesday, revealed that the galaxy’s most well-known fugitive hunter in fact made fast work of the monster, however likewise that there was more risks waiting on him in the deserts of Tatooine.

[Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for The Book of Boba Fett episode 1.]

Boba Fett’s survival of this specific Sarlacc, which is stated to devour its victim for 1000 years, was initially made canon in the Star Wars books and narratives that were released after Return of the Jedi’s 1983 release. However when Disney took control of the series it purged all those stories from the main canon — they’re now called “Legends” — tossing the character’s survival into concern. For the a lot of part fans presumed the fugitive hunter was still alive, however it wasn’t verified till he was exposed in an episode of The Mandalorian. Even with the Boba’s survival — and basic badass streak — verified, fans still needed to know how precisely he handled to get away.

In the 1996 narrative “A Barve Like That: The Tale of Boba Fett” by J.D. Montgomery, the fugitive hunter utilizes telepathy to encourage among the Sarlacc’s earlier, however still living, victims to — likewise telepathically — make the Sarlacc grab onto Boba’s jetpack, triggering it to take off. (Gee, I question why this variation isn’t canon any longer). The surge releases him from the animal’s grasp long enough to blow a hole in its side and escape.

In The Book of Boba Fett, we see a couple of resemblances however the escape is a little bit more grounded, which absolutely fits the program’s ambiance much better than telepathic connections. While Boba’s making his method through the definitely horrible within the beast, he recognizes he can punch a hole through the walls of the Sarlacc’s throat. When he does that, all it takes is a little fire from Boba’s wrist-mounted weapon to complimentary him from the animal’s grasp.

Naturally, as the program exposed soon after, things didn’t get far better for Boba Fett after the Sarlacc, with Jawas taking his armor, and Tusken Raiders holding him slave. However a minimum of we understand for sure how endured Tatooine’s many notorious beast.

The very first episode of The Book of Boba Fett is now streaming on Disney Plus.
