Guide of Boba Fett’s 2nd episode dragged the bounty hunter-turned criminal activity lord even more right into the sands of Tatooine and also the world’s sleazy underbelly. However while Boba Fett obtained his hands a little dirtier, die-hard Celebrity Wars followers were dealt with to a couple of cameos from the collection’ comics and also also old erased scenes.
[Ed. note: This post contains spoilers for The Book of Boba Fett episode 2.]
Today’s episode once more informed 2 various tales. One tale proceeded the journeys of Boba and also his former-assassin aide Fennec Shand doing their finest to develop the Fett as the brand-new daimyo of Tatooine’s busy criminal activity realm. Episode 2’s various other story adhered to Boba as he educated the Tuskens and also managed an antique wild west train burglary.
To prepare for the break-in, Boba chooses to swipe a couple of speeders from a no-good gang that’s been spending time the location, which brings us the episode’s greatest and also most unexpected cameo. Boba at some point locates the gang alcohol consumption at Tosche Terminal, an old haunting ground of Luke Skywalker — as a matter of fact, by chance, 2 of Luke’s good friends go to bench when Boba gets here.
These 2 human personalities — that invest the majority of the scene obtaining confronted by the gang — are Camie and also Fixer and also they initially turned up in a deleted scene from Celebrity Wars Episode IV: A Brand-new Hope. Because scene, they’re likewise hanging out at the Tosche Terminal bar prior to Luke locates them and also urges them to search for at the skies as he firmly insists a fight in between starships is taking place — the one that would at some point lead to R2-D2 and also C-3PO obtaining marooned on Tatooine.
While these 2 aren’t played by the exact same stars they remained in the initial 1977 scene, it’s still a great callback to an extremely particular type of long time Celebrity Wars follower.
The episode’s various other 2 looks take place a little earlier in the episode, throughout the contemporary timeline, as Boba attempts to determine that specifically placed a struck out for him, he at some point satisfies the wrongdoers: the Hutt Doubles. These 2 aren’t specifically a cameo, because they’re brand-new personalities, yet they are the opening night of any kind of Hutts in Guide of Boba Fett until now, that makes them rather noteworthy.
We understand really little past what’s discussed in Boba Fett concerning what occurred after Jabba passed away. As the program states, Bib Fortuna took control of and also the Hutts were or else pre-occupied. However why and also with what hasn’t been clear (below or in any kind of various other approved Celebrity Wars buildings). While the Hutt doubles just obtain a short intro in episode 2, it appears they’ll be rather vital to the collection moving forward.
Mentioning the Doubles, they’re likewise the celebration that brings along this episode’s various other heritage personality: Black Krrsantan. Black Krrsantan is the black-furred Wookiee that Boba describes as a gladiator. (That’s true, incidentally, Krrsantan truly was a gladiator briefly, which suggests that Boba may recognize him directly or by online reputation). Krrsantan is a Wookiee fugitive hunter that regularly helped Jabba the Hutt in the days of the Galactic Realm and also also briefly for Darth Vader. The Wookiee has actually formerly appeared in comic collection like Darth Vader and also Physician Aphra, yet this is his live-action launching.
While the collection hasn’t been swamped in Celebrity Wars referrals until now, it’s nice to see episode 2 of Publication of Boba Fett generate a couple of acquainted faces from around the galaxy, in addition to relocating the story ahead by lastly bringing the Hutts back to Tatooine.
