Warning: Vandals ahead for “The Book of Boba Fett” episode 6
Last week’s dramatic information overload has always been a tough act to keep an eye on, and “The Mandalorian” producer and co-creator Dave Filoni has stepped up to the challenge this week.
However, for reasons that will soon become clear, it’s clear that “The Book of Boba Fett” exists to cater to a larger, comprehensive plot that is both enjoyable and disappointing. And if this trend continues, quite possibly at least some some of the upcoming “Star Wars” live-action shows will also serve as supporting cast rather than lead roles, so to speak.
We now know that the “Obi-Wan Kenobi” spin-off is coming to Disney+ in May, and it looks like the story is set 10 years after the events of “Revenge of the Sith”, where Kenobi must face his greatest defeat, downfall and alienation. best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. Kenobi lives in self-imposed exile on Tatooine. It doesn’t take a leap of imagination to assume that there will be a number of events that are connected. After all, Disney has all those closed Tatooine street sets to draw even more from.
“The Book of Boba Fett” Chapter 6 – titled “From the Desert to a Stranger” – is full of surprises, and the first of which emerges in the very first scene: the return of Cobb Vanth. You may recall this instantly lovable character played by Timothy Olyphant and first introduced in the episode “The Mandalorian” “Chapter 9: The Marshall. “
He came face-to-face with some Pyke spice runners in one of the wet fields outside Mos Pelgo, or Freetown as the locals choose to call it now. It’s a stunning piece of work, and Olyphant has really made the Vanth role her own. But as soon as we all shouted, “Oh yeah!” we all sigh “oh no” and we’re on what appears to be planet Tython, where an army of worker drones is building what could be Luke’s Jedi Temple, although that is unconfirmed because Luke’s Jedi Temple was destroyed in “Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” at an undisclosed location.
An interesting point was made on social media is how the N-1 is much more streamlined than the more utilitarian Razor Crest, and it doesn’t include any bathroom equipment. And if it’s planet Tython, According to Legend (new word for old canon) it’s 8,000 light years away and N-1 is only one 1,000 light years range before needing to be refueled, perhaps. So that’s a lot of metered car stops and beef jerky snacks.
The pacing of the show slowed down considerably for this episode and love him or hate him, CGI Luke Skywalker is back. Reveal is reduced to us with assistance from Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) The Togruta Jedi Knight from the animated series “The Clone Wars” and first introduced in live action in the episode “The Mandalorian”. “Chapter 13: Jedi. “
Thankfully, VFX has been around a bit since we last saw Luke collecting Grogu in Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian” and he’s actually played by a different actor. Oddly enough, the actor who appeared in that episode was Max Lloyd-Jones, but in this episode it was another actor, Graham Hamilton. However, the vocal performance, have been put together using software, collated recordings of Mark Hamill’s performances in his youth and created a library of sounds used to synthesize his voice. What we found wasn’t perfect, and some creative camera angles were used to avoid too many costly close-ups of Skywalker’s face, but at least the technique has improved.
Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) reluctantly decides not to embarrass Grogu any further while Luke tries to train him and leaves his Beskar chain coat with Ahsoka, but that doesn’t mean Grogu isn’t. feel his presence near. It was actually quite emotional.
One unexpected bonus of this nostalgic festival is Luke asking Grogu about his home world and for a fleeting moment our hearts stop, we almost believe we’ll see it. However, Grogu can only remember (or just choose to remember) the attack on the Jedi Temple by the Imperial army when they carried out “order 66” in “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith,” and we have issued. a glimpse of that. This begs the question, who rescued Grogu from Coruscant?
There are a couple of throwbacks to the earlier “Star Wars,” including some of the phrases Luke uses to train Grogu that are very similar to when Yoda trained Luke on Dagobah in “Episode V: The Empire Strikes” Back”, and has a Marksman- H distance learning. And then Djarin returns to Tatooine to take on Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). It looks like we’ll be stuck with the “knee” shots as Djarin flies his still-unnamed N-1 – they’re like the same point-and-shoot shots you’d expect from Wedgie, the pet of Jock Snake in “Raiders of the Lost Ark.”
After the interview at
By Jabba Throne room in Fett’s palace with Mod Mos Espa and Black Krrsantan Squad, Djarin suggests he can help by recruiting foot soldiers for the impending battle with the criminal organization Pyke. An ambiguous plan of all sorts came up and he began talking to Vanth. Marshall of Freetown was naturally happy to see Mandalorian again; they haven’t talked since they killed the dragon Krayt in “The Mandalorian” Chapter 9″The Marshall“However, Vanth says that the people of the town officially known as Mos Pelgo are done fighting. So without a doubt we can expect them to show up next week after changing their mind. guns and homemade weapons.
Djarin took a leave of absence and then something very interesting happened. You see, we all thought that “Stranger” from the episode title was referring to Vanth, but it’s not. Instead, a lone stranger appeared on the horizon and walked menacingly toward town. Naturally, this caught Vanth’s attention, and he warned the townspeople to go inside. Turns out it was none other than Cad Bane.
Now, even if you’re not a devout follower of all things “Star Wars” and you have no clue Who or how ugly this cat is, Bane’s introduction is still impressive and care has clearly been taken to make his presence noticeable regardless of his background knowledge. you about the “Star Wars” universe.
Based on WookiepediaCad Bane is a male bounty hunter and mercenary of Duros whose career spans from the fall of the Galactic Republic, the reign of the Galactic Empire, and into the age of the New Republic. Following the death of Jango Fett (whom Boba was cloned from) on Geonosis at the hands of Jedi Master Mace Windu, Bane was considered the best and one of the most ruthless bounty hunters of his time. He first appeared in the animated series “The Clone Wars” and his story has been added to several episodes.
Bane instructs Vanth not to follow Djarin and Fett into a war with the Pyke organization and only the ignorant actions of his deputy (played by JJ Dashnaw) will prevent a peaceful exchange. . Deputy Defu was blown away in an even greater rain of fire, and poor Vanth took one to his chest. Unfortunately, the scene ends with Vanth still lying motionless in the sand, so we hope he’s not seriously injured. However, this will probably be the impetus that the townspeople need to join Fett’s fight and remove Tatooine from the Pyke organization once and for all.
We then head to Mos Espa, where two members of the Pyke association left a camino in the popular Sanctuary bar and it’s pretty clear what will happen next, as even Garsa Fwip (Jennifer Beals) realized a split second before – an explosion rocked the streets of Mos Espa, destroying at least half of the cantina in a formal declaration of war. But exactly who was killed in that explosion remains to be seen, and our hopes for less Skywalker content will blow up along with the bar and we’re back with Luke and Grogu.
Luke senses that Grogu misses Mandalorian and presents him with a choice; Luke places Yoda’s old lightsaber next to Beskar’s vest and says he has to choose – each represents a different path, one is Luke’s padawan and the other is Din Djarin’s companion. What a spoiler, but we doubt we’ll see Grogu make a choice in this show’s finale. That epic moment will most likely carry over into Season 3 of “The Mandalorian.”
Some questions remain as we head into the final episode: Will we really see more of Boba Fett? After all, this show is named after him. Will Fett ride his Rancor into battle? Or will he use his air superiority as he did in Chapter 4, destroying a gang of Kintan Striders on speedboats with his Firespray-class battleship? Or maybe Shand will pilot that? Will there be a confrontation between Fett and Bane?
And at the end, we will get a Monday part of “The Book of Boba Fett” or will this remain a standalone, limited series as we’ve been told was the original idea? Temuera Morrison said that he wants to hunt down Mace Windu in a potential second season, “I owe him a lot of time because [Jango Fett]… He’s at the top of the list. “
Stellan Skarsgard has revealed that “Andor” already has a second season, so maybe “The Book of Boba Fett” will too. “Star Wars” needs to expand beyond Tatooine and show off its entire universe, and hopefully some new live-action show will do just that.
Seasons 1 and 2 of “The Mandalorian” are available to stream on Disney+ in the US, and so are the first three episodes of “The Book of Boba Fett” plus every episode and every movie in the “Star Wars” universe. . Disney+ will launch in 42 countries and 11 territories this summer, including South Africa, Turkey, Poland and the United Arab Emirates.
