First off, because I’ve been off of here for a while, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Secondly, The Book of Boba Fett drops tomorrow. Am I as excited for it as I will be for the third season of The Mandalorian? Definitely not, but I am intrigued as to why we’re even getting this spinoff in the first place and how it will connect to the grander story that is Star Wars. (Because every story in this franchise eventually connects to one of the movies or other Dave Filoni-helmed shows in some capacity.)
The trailers and tv spots have been intriguing enough as it is. There will be action, there will be new characters, and plenty of underworld criminals. Am I expecting characters like Omega, Qi’ra, or Cad Bane to show up? No, because then I’ll be disappointed if they don’t show up. Instead, I’m ready to just follow along for the ride, and hopefully, it’s just as good as the sixth episode (“The Tragedy”) of the second season of The Mandalorian. If so, I’m going to be losing my mind for seven weeks.
Either way, the long-awaited Boba Fett standalone story is finally here.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a great day.
