‘The Book of Boba Fett’ review: The bounty hunter takes the plunge into ‘Star Wars’ nostalgia on Disney+ (SPOILERS)
Those scenes expanded what Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) withstood in the wake of his defeat and the loss of his armor, prior to delving into today, where he and fellow killer Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) have actually presumed control of the criminal empire as soon as commanded by Jabba the Hutt.
“Jabba ruled with fear,” Boba Fett tells her. “I intend to rule with respect.”
What respect means in the wilds of Tatooine remains to be seen, but the duo almost immediately face an assassination attempt, so resting on his laurels, and throne, doesn’t appear to be in the cards.
The premiere didn’t contain lots of clues, frankly, on where the overall story is heading, however with such an abundance of action and “Star Wars” nostalgia, nor did it really need to.
More than anything, “The Book of Boba Fett” conveys the impression of a group of folks weaned on “Star Wars” being given the opportunity to essentially transform playing with action figure as kids into an actual series. For anyone who possesses a similar connection to these stories, the practically irresistible temptation is to dive right in with them, until you can practically feel the sands of Tatooine in between your toes.
“The Book of Boba Fett” is streaming on Disney+.
