Boba Fett feels like a side character in this ‘Star Wars’ The Greatest Hits show


I’m going to let you know from the beginning there will be spoilers for the 6th Episode of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ on Disney Plus entitled “From the Desert Comes a Stranger”. So proceed with caution.

Fans are freaking out over the latest episode of ‘The Mandalorian’, I mean ‘The Book of Boba Fett.’ They have good reason, it’s another old school fan pleasing episode that focuses more on past favorite characters and not so much on the title character. The show is quickly feeling like Boba Fett is a side character in his own show while Lucasfilm sets up all their other upcoming shows, while showcasing their “greatest hit characters.”

Don’t get me wrong, I’m there all day for my favorite characters, but this just furthers the injustice dealt to what was once the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.

Now, I’m not going to ruin the episode any more than to let you know who all appears for this episode. It’s a who’s who of fan pleasing characters including: The Mandalorian, Grogu, Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, R2-D2, Cobb Vanth, and Cad Bane!

It’s quite exciting for fans and I love seeing my favorites back! But I still feel bad for Boba Fett as he got upstaged in his show yet again.  He’s at least in this episode, so that’s better than last week, but the character is still not allowed to have his own show. ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ feels more like an introduction piece to all the other shows coming soon.

But I digress…

Go check out the episode. I’m there anytime Luke and R2-D2 shows up, and Grogu is just icing on the cake. I’m happy to see Lucasfilm embracing Luke and R2 after how they were handled in the sequel trilogy. It seems they might be changing their focus and directives. I’m not yet convinced this is indeed true yet, but it does seem that it may be the case.

If you thought Episode 5 was fan service-y, then just wait!
