Book of Boba Fett just became Star Wars’ New Hope!

by James Murphy

No spoilers. But I must say the following:

  • They get the essence of STAR WARS: western meets warfare with hints of sci/fi and fantasy.
  • There is fan service. Not undoing prequel and sequel trilogy but respecting their assets whilst dodging liabilities.
  • Feels like a REAL world. HAPPENS to be on planets / use lasers etc. But genuinely urgent, raw, earthy!
  • They do not over-explain. Stuff just happens and they get on with it!
  • The Arthurian dimension of the legend is being preserved.
  • They are allowing storylines to develop, via serial presentation. THAT is what STAR WARS was, always!
  • Adult issues, filtered through childhood eyes. This is a gangster story. In space! 
  • Fan service, yes. But done ‘right’. Just a joy to inhabit and be around. 

So yes, the show had a mixed, boring start. But NOW? UNMISSABLE. Go see it, immediately!
