Still more characterisation in that brief conversation she has in Chapter 5 than anyone across all three prequels.

Oh please. Even Sio fucking Bibble is more memorable then her.

It’s all about the flashy looks, isn’t it? Obviously the quality of a character is assessed by their costume.

No, but it would help compensate for her non-existant personality.

Also, Ming-Na Wen is awesome and Fennec Shand is a great character.

Fennec Shand is a non-character. Remove her and her introductory episode (one of the worst episodes) and nothing changes. She’s so forgettable when she’s reintroduced in S2 and Din recognizes her I had to take a moment to figure out who she was. They could’ve at least given he a unique design or something.

Think Fennec Shand is boring all you want, but could you at least be respectful about it? I don’t think she’s worth getting into a heated argument over.

I bet there are a lot of new Boba Fett comics and novels on the way.

LOL, I didn’t pay any attention to this announcement to begin with because I thought it was literally just a book. 😛 Now I understand why there’s an active thread about it…

The integration of the animated characters in the Mandalorian has opened the door for more characters to come into the fray.

And with that said, I would love for Cad Bane to show up. I can’t think of a better antagonist for the show.

Cad Bane is a bastard who I just love to watch.

I would like for Cad Bane to be the one to have dented Boba’s helmet, like the unfinished animated clip, but let it seem like Boba and Cad have unfinished business.

I wish every one of the bounty hunters from the Executor bridge in ESB would appear and be fleshed out in this series as well. I’d say Bossk and Dengar are the safest bet because of their popularity and their ties to Boba.

I’d rather not see continuous universe shrinking. Maybe one or two of those bounty hunters, but we’ve already seen so much of them in the Clone Wars that I’d prefer that they were only brought into the show if it really makes sense for them to be there. Too many characters seem to show up in these shows just for the sake of being there, without it really contributing to the plot.

Since Filoni never got to finish the Fett vs Bane episode of TCW it’s not impossible that we’ll get to see it in a flashback. There’s already been some speculation that the “Book” in the title refers to different chapters in Fett’s life and that it will be mostly or partially about his past. Daniel Logan, who played young Boba in AOTC, could play a young Fett and with a bit of re-writing or maybe some subtle digital de-aging they could pull it off.

With the technology being used, i would say they would de-age Temuera like they did in Aquaman, i good thing about it is, they wouldn’t even need to do it much, he would probably have the helmet on for about 80% of the show.

Wasn’t there another guy even who played an intermediary age for clones in AOTC and ROTS.

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

There was, and he looked so much like Padme’s guard it was distracting.

Well, I loved all the characters. And Ming-na Wen is such a Star Wars fan. They are shooting Book of Boba Fett right now. She is playing an assassin and I think she did it very well.

I always thought it was an early shot at de-aging Temuera 😮

More Boba Fett content is something I’m all on board with, and Fennec, while not exactly prominent in Mando, is cool too. A Boba Fett side kick (love interest?) is something I’m excited for.

Agreed

I’m pretty excited for Book of Boba having just finished Mandalorian season 2 yesterday. I was honestly pretty blown away by how good Season 2 was. Every aspect of the show oozes quality, I love its writing, its characters and the production values are insane. To me it didn’t really falter all the way through.

If the Book of Boba Fett show is about different periods of Fett’s history I think that would be an excellent idea. I love that the Mandalorian shows more of the seedy underbelly and criminal side of the Star Wars universe and tales of Fett’s past showing him as a bad guy contrasting with the current stuff in the Mandalorian where he has more of a moral centre would be very interesting.

Judging from the ending of Mando Season 2 it kind of looks like he’s taking over Jabba’s old criminal empire so does that mean he’ll use some of Jabba/Bib’s resources for a more noble purpose now that he’s a bit more moral? Really intrigued to find out.

Thanks to ALL members of the forum whose tireless preservation efforts have allowed me to watch the original films as I remember them.
You all rule.
