Every galaxy has an underworld. The Wrap Reports: “The Book of Boba Fett” has a lot going for it – it’s the first spin-off of the insanely popular “The Mandalorian;” it returns Temuera Morrison, who played the character of Jango Fett in the prequels and in the last season of “The Mandalorian,” with the franchise; and is the first nonanimated “Star Wars” story of any kind since “The Mandalorian’s” second season concluded way back on Dec. 18, 2020.
Besides a couple of stunning shots of Tatooine, a central hub of the “Star Wars” galaxy since the first film introduced us to the desert planet in 1977 (beautifully conjured by the wizards at Industrial Light & Magic), the possible appearance of Dok-Ondar, a character from the Disney Parks “Star Wars” land Galaxy’s Edge, and a couple of intriguing images (we love Boba Fett’s helmet falling to the ground and coins spilling out), this first trailer didn’t leave much to hang your hat on. And while it might be easy to get discouraged, we think there are a few reasons that the “Book of Boba Fett” trailer felt so underwhelming. There’s no reason to throw yourself in the rancor pit just yet.
