The Book of Boba Fett: Episode 7 Discussion


Recommended Posts

After finishing The Book of Boba Fett episode 7 I have a mixed feelings about this show.

There are definitely some decent action scenes in here. But the whole plotline felt kind of disjointed.

I like it sets up the events for the next season of the Mandalorian but this show itself, feels disconnected from the rest of the star wars universe. Meaning its almost like what's the point?

The Mandalorian series feels like its adding to the overall worldbuilding of the Star Wars universe. But for the most part The Book of Boba Fett feels like we are just viewing a quick snapshot of time.

The ending of this was a little dramatic. We actually watch Fennec take out the spice traders, the mayor and the other goons all by herself. She even strings up the mayor. That was a little shocking for a Disney production. It would have been nice if she did that earlier. 😅

My favorite part of this series was the small amount of world building they did in the beginning, where we see a rehabilitation of Boba Fett with the Tusken Raiders. The making of the staff was pretty cool but I thought these scenes would become more important.

I would have liked to see Boba Fett cultivate some of his desert allies to help him defend his turf. He should have powerful allies in the Tusken Raiders. The writers could have connected this little spice war with a larger conflict. Boba could have armed the raiders and tried to extend his reach over the planet. I feel like it was a missed opportunity.

The best action scenes by far was Boba riding the rancor into battle. If the beast was that impervious to blasters, he should've been using it from the very beginning! The part where it rampages afterwards had a King Kong feel to it. I'm sure some people found it cool but for me it wasn't needed. It didn't really add anything to the story for me.

Seeing Grogo put the rancor to sleep is more like icing on the cake. It didn't feel like there was any new revelation about his abilities. Now if he had used force lightning that would have set the internet on fire🔥 and given us something to speculate about. Did Luke make a mistake with Grogo? Is Grogo going down the wrong path?

At the very very end we see Boba bowing to everyone in town receiving much earned gratitude and thanks. Frome there it cuts away to Mando and Grogo blasting through space(Mando's ship looks so sweet!) towards their next adventure. I wish we got a little bit more info on Mando's next destination. The whole thing just kind of ended without much resolution and talk about the future. Which was a little bit disappointing.

The post credit scene shows Cobb Vanth recovering in Boba's tank with the mod artist getting ready to go to work. So it looks like we'll be seeing the Marshal again(probably in the next Mandalorian series), I'm looking forward to it!
