For the longest time, the Boba Fett movie seemed impossible. Star Wars was back, new movies were being made, and a Boba Fett feature film was always on the table. He’s one of the coolest, most instantly iconic characters in the history of science fiction. The world was clamoring for more of this dastardly, hot shot character. But a movie never happened. And instead we got seven episodes of a TV show: The Book of Boba Fett. It has come and gone and, unfortunately, did not live up to those decades of hype.
TV Show Rating: 6/10 – Pretty Good
I love The Mandalorian as much as the next person. It seemed like a silly Boba Fett knock-off at first, but then The Mandalorian came out swinging and has become a cultural touchstone the world over. And something about its success convinced those in power that the knock-off could bring back the original, and now Boba Fett has been re-established and is ready for action. Too bad that action turned out to be pretty perfunctory, with a lot more walking and standing around than badass bounty hunting. Still, at long last, we had our Boba Fett media project, and that in itself is pretty cool.
Join me after the jump for my review and thoughts on the first season of The Book of Boba Fett. Expect FULL SPOILERS for all the episodes, and what this means for The Mandalorian going forward.Read the rest of this entry
You best believe I’m excited for The Book of Boba Fett. I’m only human. I love Star Wars. I love The Mandalorian. I love Baby Yoda. And I love Boba Fett. He’s great! The badass bounty hunter with the coolest set of armor in the entire galaxy? What’s not to love?
The first trailer arrived yesterday for The Book of Boba Fett, the TV show coming to Disney+ in December.
And it looks great! Just a teaser for now, but a wonderful teaser. Boba Fett is going to take over Jabba the Hutt’s place as underworld kingpin, and that sounds pretty cool. The Fennec Shand along for the ride! This show should be a heck of a lot of fun!
The Book of Boba Fett arrives on Dec. 19.
Merry Christmas week, everybody! This year we received the greatest present of all time: the announcement, at long last, of the Boba Fett TV series! A Boba Fett movie has been in the works for as long as Disney has owned Stat Wars. But after false starts and failed projects, we finally have the official announcement of The Book of Boba Fett for next December!
Once upon a time, I used to do Christmas-themed lists the week of Christmas. I did one about snowmen, one about reindeer, one about Santa in comics…but I ran out of Christmas things to make lists about. So now I feel like doing a nice, simple list where I talk about all the exciting things I want to see in the Boba Fett TV show! That sounds like a fun Christmas activity. And a year from now, when the show kicks off, we can all look back on this list to see if I got anything right!
I am not ashamed of blatant fan service, especially not when it comes to my personal Lists of Six about Star Wars things. And I promise not to put Wraith Squadron on this one. So join me after the jump for my hopes and dreams for The Book of Boba Fett!Read the rest of this entry
Last Thursday night was a crazy night! Disney held their annual investor summit and, since there were no comic-cons this year, they basically announced EVERYTHING they had coming up for Disney, Pixar, Star Wars and Marvel. As everyone here well knows, I love all of those things! So last Thursday was like Christmas come early.
I didn’t have the time or energy to write individual blog posts for every single awesome thing to come out of the summit. I shared a bunch of the trailers, which are the best part! Now this list is about some of the other bits and pieces I enjoyed! A ton of new content was announced and I want to share my favorite bits. We already knew about a lot of things, like Tatiana Maslany cast as She-Hulk and the Ms. Marvel show. We also knew the Fantastic Four movie was coming. So this list is about new things we learned at the summit, the things I am, personally, most excited about! Big and small!
So join me after the jump for some truly great upcoming geekery!Read the rest of this entry
