Boba Fett is a fan favorite


Carson Timbol, Staff Writer and Artist

With one of the most feared bounty hunters now in power as the Daimyo of Tatooine, surely the sands of Tatooine are bound to be in havoc and terror, but the new ruler rules with respect instead of fear.
Star Wars fans were given a brand new television show, The Book of Boba Fett, with the main protagonist being the feared former bounty hunter, Boba Fett, played by Temuera Morrison.
Through the six current episodes, viewers gain knowledge about what happened to Boba Fett after the events of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Fett was thought to be dead after being eaten by a Sarlacc in Episode VI, but he makes his unexpected return in Chapter 14 of season two of The Mandalorian.
The Book of Boba Fett was first teased after the season two finale of The Mandalorian, and its first episode was aired on Dec. 29. Episodes are released onto Disney Plus every Wednesday, and I look forward to every release.
The show has gained massive popularity due to its different protagonists. Usually Star Wars movies and shows have been centered around a Jedi, or the good guys, but Boba Fett, on the other hand, has always been known as a villain in the Star Wars universe because he has worked for bigger villains such as Darth Vader and Jabba the Hutt.
Along with that, Boba’s father, Jango Fett was also a bounty hunter that was hired to assassinate a senator that had relations with a Jedi, making the Fett surname infamous.
The Book of Boba Fett is mostly centered around the former bounty hunter’s past. It allows viewers to formulate a different opinion on the feared villain.
The series shows that Boba Fett is a strong, determined, likable character, and intends to rule as the Daimyo of Tatooine, not with fear but with respect. I would highly recommend watching this show, Star Wars fan or not, because you can start it without having prior knowledge about the franchise, and it gives you a storyline viewers are able to enjoy without leaving them in the dark.
