Book Of Boba Fett Teaser


Recommended Posts

First teaser is out and they're not giving much away: though it seems being a respectable criminal on Tattoine probably isn't the easy life the big slug made it look like.

Thoughts? Mine in the spoiler tag:

Spoiler

So, Sopranos in Space or a galactic Godfather?

 

Not much action in what's clearly a very early teaser, relying on the menace of the Fandom's Ultimate Badass (well, except for Chewie). Given the series is probably about testing the limits of Boba's patience and vulnerabilities, he doesn't quite carry it off in the allotted 90 seconds. Still, will be giving it a watch.

I wonder how much of it will be negotiating with other factions, (aggressively or otherwise), and how much will be Boba doing bounty hunter stuff.  I also wonder if any of the series will be devoted to explaining his apparently difference in behavior between the original trilogy and the post-RotJ era.  I do hope the majority of the series does not take place on Tatooine, but I feel like we'll be seeing an awful lot of Jabba's palace.  I would like to see Boba run into at least 1 surviving clone - would make for an interesting exchange.  I also wonder if there will be any flashbacks to the events of the original trilogy, from Boba's perspective, (a la setting up Han's capture, etc).

I dunno, having had to escape from the intestines of 300 foot wide Venus Flytrap weighs on a man's mind a bit. Not to mention having several million identical clones of yourself running around the galaxy, and occasionally having to shoot yourself in the fac...

THEORY: That's not Boba. It's Captain Rex or another clone cosplaying him as a search for meaning and a place in the new Universe - reclaiming their "father's" legacy. If it's as Impervium-y as canon suggests, Beskar would survive Sarlacc gastric juices with barely some tarnish to the paintwork, but the man inside might succumb to the acid fumes quite quickly.

 

Not quickly enough for it not to be a deeply unpleasant way to go: I once fancied myself a mystery writer, and had one unfortunate low-level villain disposed of by being locked in a pine wardrobe and put through the dip-and-strip process. Quite fun having a suburban, van-driving soccer Mom type running an extended crime family - and investigating crime herself.

 

And yes, if I'd ever had enough success in Whollyodd to pitch it, Amy Poehler, plus Olivia Colman basically playing my Mum as her intensely practical consigliere.

I'm intrigued, but I feel the fans would go into full riot mode if it played out that way.  People are far too connected to the character to have the story play out otherwise, and Disney is still skating on very thin ice with the fans after the Sequel Trilogy.

 

What I'm curious about is whether Dave Filoni is heavily involved in this, or too tied up with other projects.  He helmed Clone Wars which had several Boba stories showing a young Boba as walking a mental/emotional tightrope of sorts between being good and being bad.  I'd be interested to see if he's tapping that history to create the older character.

 

While the trailer didn't show much, it did show a great many aliens, including some never seen before in canon (notably the cyber-spider).  I think that's the take away, that the show is going to be rich in alien life, not just a bunch of humans with a smattering of aliens.

 

And yes, I'd like to see one of the clone troopers as well.  Rex is now canon for having fought on the moon of Endor.  It's possible he may still be around 9 years later.  Wolf possibly as well.

 

You do realize that Cobb Vanth is still around, still a lawman, and may therefore show up at some point in the BoBF?

Given Boba's trying to build a (criminal) society based on respect and co-operation rather than brutality, that scans.

 

According to IMDb:

  • It looks very much like a Favreau & Filoni show again, plus one of my favourite filmmakers - Robert "El Mariachi" Rodriguez - added to the topline team.
  • Kath Kennedy and Karen Gilchrist overseeing from LucasFilm.
  • Filoni's also written at least one episode, as has Favreau, Rodriguez and Bryce Dallas Howard, which they will also direct. Suspect the Mandalorian's chocolate box of writers and directors worked well last time, not just for giving lots of different creative perspectives, but also for scheduling and budgets.
  • Sorry Kiwi lunatic fans, Waititi isn't on the early list and is very busy with Love And Thunder and 800 other things. Hope he manage to squeeze one in.
  • Official producer producer is listed as John Bartnicki, who's been one of Favreau's regulars since Chef.
    (By the way, do watch Chef. Great little movie. Not while you're hungry, mind.)

I've heard Waititi will be back acting in The Mandalorian again.  If true, I would assume this means he's voicing another IG-11 hunter droid.

Amazing!  I'm so excited for Ahsoka, BoBF, and the next season of The Mandalorian.  Such a great time to be a Star Wars fan!  😁👍

 

Now, if only they could make movies as good as the live-action series.  😛

I'm not familiar with Bordizzo, but strictly on that photo, she does bear a good resemblance to Sabine Wren.   She apparently doesn't have a deep body of work, so undoubtedly this will be her breakout role. IMDB.com says Bordizzo has a black belt in Taekwando, which is going to come in very handy when playing a signature Mandalorian. 

 

The voice actors did such a good job, I'm a bit sorry that they didn't create Sabine as looking like Tiya Sircar so Tiya could play her in the live role, like they got Katee Sackhoff to do for her character.  For that matter, I could have wished Kallus was modeled on his voice actor, David Oyelowo, and for the same reason.
