“The Book of Boba Fett” will release its series finale on Wednesday morning, capping yet another chapter in the Star Wars saga.
‘The Book of Boba Fett’ – once billed as the new chapter in ‘The Mandalorian’ story – centers on bounty hunter Boba Fett, who survived his supposed death from the Sarlaac Pit as seen in “Return of the Jedi”.
Fett first teams up with the Tusken Raiders, who teach him their ways of growing and fighting. Soon after, he meets Fennec Shand, who helps him retake the palace from Jabba the Hutt.
Soon, Boba Fett, as he tries to secure his place as leader of Jabba’s Palace and this area of Tatooine, is faced with a new enemy – the Pyke Syndicate, who send Kessel spices across the planet. With an impending war on the way, Boba asks the Mandalorian Din Djarin for help. Djarin, however, went his own way, in search of Grogu, who is trained by Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.
Yeah, there’s a lot going on on this show.
Now, as we head into the finale, we expect to see an epic showdown between Boba Fett and the Pyke Syndicate with the fate of Tatooine hanging in the balance. So what should we expect to see? Here are seven predictions.
Boba Fett will not die. In “Star Wars”, it feels like no one is really gone. And while “The Book of Boba Fett” seems like the perfect opportunity to put the character to rest, I don’t think that will happen. The character has too large an audience. And his whole journey has centered around him becoming the Daimyo – another word for “the leader” – of Tatooine. So it would make sense for him to end the series as the true leader.
Boba Fett will mount a resentment. In episode 5 of the series, Boba Fett received a resentment and he heard about a story where a person could learn how to ride one. I bet it pays off in the finale.
Mando, Grogu, Luke and the Republic will save the day. Boba Fett has a small army right now for his battle against the Pyke Syndicate. So it wouldn’t surprise me if all of our heroes – the Mandalorians, Grogu, Luke Skywalker, and other Republic heroes – joined the fight against the Pykes, especially since Tatooine has such an important history. Plus, maybe Disney decided to push their crossover event, which was teased when other “Star Wars” projects were announced.
Han Solo will return to the “Star Wars” universe. There was there are a few rumors about it circulating on the internet. But you can’t tell the entire Boba Fett story without a little action from Han Solo. And with Lucasfilm’s talented graphics team, I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a young Han Solo appear on Tatooine to help fight alongside Boba Fett.
Qi’ra will be the leader of it all. Dear ‘Solo’ Fans – I think your interest in Qi’ra will pay off as she will be the head of the Pyke Syndicate and the person who hired Cad Bane to fight Boba Fett. In the Marvel Comics series “War of the Bounty Hunters”, we see Qi’ra battling Boba Fett’s Han Solo (who at the time was frozen in carbonite). It would be normal for Qi’ra to return.
The original trio reunited again? Stick with me on this one. But we saw a digital version of Leia Organa in “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”. We also saw Luke Skywalker’s digital presentation. So wouldn’t it be fitting to end this series by seeing the digital versions of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa together again in a live-action setting? It’s a moment we never got in the sequel trilogy, after all.
A post-credits scene with Mace Windu. I will use my own idea here. Imagine a post-credits scene where someone in Tatooine brings Daimyo Boba Fett a gift of a lucky charm for “someone he was looking for.” The screen switches to Coruscant where we see Mace Windu in hiding, having survived the events of “Revenge of the Sith”. Shit.
