Okay. There is a reason it was called The Book of Boba Fett and not just Boba Fett.
If you realize, most of the Star Wars TV shows have the names of the characters in the title as the titular character (ex. Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, Andor, The Bad Batch)
The writers of TBOBF knew that Boba's story was just that: a story. He wasn't going to be some lone wolf going forward and needed some allies. A book has chapters, and with a limited episode amount, the writers had to wrap up all loose ends in the process. This is why there was an episode dedicated to the Mandalorian; and episode dedicated to Luke and Grogu; they needed to introduce those connections so that the finale worked. It set up The Mandalorian season 3 with Grogu reuniting with Din and it showed that there was a future for Luke and his Jedi training ideas. It sets up more for Ahsoka's story. Books are there to add detail to a story.
And Boba was never set up to be alone in the story either. In Attack of the Clones he had his father, in Star Wars: The Clone Wars he ran with other bounty hunters. In the original trilogy he worked for Darth Vader. In The Mandalorian he was with Fennec.
He was always set up to run with other people and everyone complains that the show wasn't about Boba. It was. Books have off chapters, and they need to have an event or way that ties everyone in. Its not like they could have randomly brought in Din or Grogu or Luke or Ahsoka, so they needed some background.
While the execution of the show may not have been to liking, it still lived up to its name. It was The Book of Boba Fett.
Modern AU Boba and Fennec meet in the psychiatric office when Boba is watching Brittany Spears’s Toxic music video on full volume without headphones on his phone and Fennec is all ‘this might finally be the bitch that can handle me…’ and they’ve been best friends since Fennec told him she would kill anyone he asked. Not to like, win his heart or shit like that, just cause she thinks it would be fun. They’ve decided they’re soulmates. Dad Fett is just happy his kid brought someone home to meet him, doesn’t even question it when Obi-Wan comes into their room later asking for Boba’s exact birth chart and alignment lists, and when Obi-Wan said they didn’t know all that for Boba, she nodded as if that was the correct answer, and said ‘thanks. Not knowing will keep the voices quiet for a bit.’ And Jango is just like ‘lmao, it’s good he’s making… friends? Are they together??’ ‘Babe, I think they’re about two steps away from getting out on the news as possible murder suspects, location unknown.’ Jango is still just glad his kid is making friends again.
Two years later they come home with a young father and his weird frog obsessed son and Jango and Obi-Wan spend Way Too Long trying to figure out what’s wrong with this one, only to realize he’s a lil bit dumb and they took pity on him. Okay. Sure. Why not. The child def eats everything in sight and they’re kinda worried Grogu has an eating disorder at first, turns out he’s just a tiny bottomless pit. Or an alien. Probably an alien.
Ming Na trying to get Pedro to help her decide on a Din and Fennec ship name is the funniest and yet sweetest thing I’ve ever seen
next week predictions ft. judgmental besties
I do wish tbobf would acknowledge that Leia killed Jabba not only because she deserves the credit but also so we can have this scene
Fennec: yeah so after you fell in the sarlacc pit and Princess Leia strangled Jabba to death-
Boba: when who did what now
I’M BACK WITH A SHITPOST, HERE WE FUCKING GO.
Based on this fucking masterpiece of a tiktok.
I’m just glad Max Rebo managed to get a new gig after surviving his second cantina explosion. A true legend.
