News broke last week that the upcoming Disney+ series, “The Book of Boba Fett” has wrapped filming. It is slated to release this coming December and is rumored to basically be season 2.5 of The Mandalorian. There are so many different possibilities for what we could see in this series. In this article I will get into some of my theories/ideas for the series.
Boba’s escape from the sarlacc pit
Temuera Morrison stated in an interview a few days ago that The Book of Boba Fett will really explore some of Fett’s backstory. If we are learning more about Fett and his backstory, I really believe we will be seeing how he actually escaped from the sarlacc pit after Return of the Jedi. There are plenty of theories on how it happened and we could finally see what really went down.
Live action Cad Bane
One of the most bad ass bounty hunters ever. Cad Bane was a very popular character in the beginning seasons of the Clone Wars TV show. If we’re getting flashback scenes from Fett’s past, I would love to see the deleted scene from the Clone Wars where a young Boba Fett and Bane face off. This face off ends with Bane shooting Fett’s helmet, which is where the dent in the helmet came from. We just saw the return of Bane in the Bad Batch series, so this surprise appearance may be setting up an appearance in the Book of Boba Fett.
The return of other bounty hunter’s
Seeing the live action return of any of the bounty hunters from episode five would be awesome. I would love to see an older Fett interact or even face off with Bossk, IG-88, or Dengar.
Boba Fett and Fennec-Shand will officially rule and take over Jabba’s Palace
After seeing Fett take out Bib Fortuna in the series teaser, I think this is the most obvious theory. I believe Fett and Fennec-Shand will now be the new rulers of Jabba’s Palace. Fett may even have his sights set on ruling all of Tattooine.
Crossover with Mando season three?
Like I previously said, it is heavily rumored that The Book of Boba Fett will pretty much be season 2.5 of The Mandalorian. With that being said, I have a strong feeling we will be seeing some of the characters from The Mandalorian show up in the series. I also believe the story being told in The Book of Boba Fett will run concurrently to season three of The Mandalorian.
