Beginning immediately January 5, 2022 the second episode of the primary season of the TV sequence Boba Fett’s ebook is obtainable with an (surprising) length of greater than 50 minutes. The episode titled “The tribes of Tatooine” is cut up in two between Boba Fett’s previous and current (evidently this would be the development of the sequence till the top) or between his want to grow to be the Daimyo, aka the chief of Tatooine’s felony realm and his private journey with the Tusken, after popping out of Sarlacc alive.
The second chapter of The Ebook of Boba Fett, additionally contemplating its length, presents a number of Easter eggs and attention-grabbing quotes to carry to gentle watch out for spoilers!
The absence of the rancor
Fennec Shand throws the Evening Wind killer into the cage the place a man-eating monster is meant to be! That is the Rancor or a creature utilized by Jabba the Hutt to kill his captives. The cell is empty as a result of the Rancor was killed by Luke Skywalker within the film Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
The tribute to Star Excursions
One of many droids featured within the Refuge (additionally current within the first episode) pays tribute to RX-24, or the clumsy pilot droid that led followers to one of many Star Wars sights, the Star Excursions. This attraction debuted at Disneyland in 1987 and has been changed with extra trendy ones over time. On Disney+ you will see an attention-grabbing documentary concerning the Star Wars sights inside the theme parks.
The Cousins of Jabba The Hutt
Within the Star Wars canon, Jabba’s acknowledged cousins are twins or Crakka and Hiro, however these should not twins. The primary not too long ago appeared solely in comics (Star Wars Adventures: Return to Vader’s Fortress #4, launched within the US in 2019), the second appeared a number of instances within the animated sequence Star Wars: The Clone Wars, however was killed right here as properly.
Additionally, given the pink colour of the pores and skin – which resembles Crakka’s within the comics – the feminine copy of the Hutts seen on this second episode might simply be Crakka. Along with her, it’s conceivable that there’s a twin brother whose existence was unknown. Boba Fett means that the twins return to Nal Hutta. It is a swampy planet managed by the Hutts
The Wookiee with the black fur
The Wookiee with the black fur is Black Krrsantan or a bounty hunter (former gladiator) employed by the Jabba. Black Krrsantan has additionally labored for Darth Vader prior to now. It’s the primary time he’s appeared in a live-action model, in actual fact this character has solely appeared in comics (he made his debut in 2015’s Darth Vader #1).
Boba Fett appears to know him, in actual fact he turns to the Hutts to make them perceive that he is aware of the previous gladiator. Plus Boba appoints the Trandoshane guards. These have the looks of humanoid reptiles and are of the identical species because the bounty hunter Bossk. By mentioning them, Boba Fett is referring to the ambush that Black Krrsantan arrange these guards, which might be learn within the 2016 Physician Aphra Annual #1 comedian.
The prepare assault within the desert jogged my memory of the attractive scenes from the Mad Max saga, however jogged my memory of the film Solo: A Star Wars Story. In reality, the prepare is powered by a blue substance, harking back to the valuable coaxial in Ron Howard’s movie.
The slave mines of Kessel
The slave mines of Kessel have been visited within the film Solo: A Star Wars Story. The prepare, the spices, the coax (if it was coax), and the Pyke’s rep all verify my thesis that The Ebook of Boba Fett TV sequence might be an ideal sequel to Solo: A Star Wars Story. On this second episode we see one of many leaders of the Pike union. As seen in Solo: A Star Wars Story when chief Quay Tolsite argued with Qi’ra, after coming to Kessel with Han Solo.
The Spice Sansanna
After the prepare stops, Boba particularly asks Fett concerning the Sansanna spices. Nicely, this one appeared within the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated sequence as a priceless useful resource for a lot of criminals. The chief of the Pykes himself, Lom Pyke, was an avid client of this spice. This can be utilized as a medication and should have therapeutic results. It’s nonetheless unclear how potent it’s as a medication and why, in fact, Boba Fett is in search of it.
