Book of Boba Fett Not Trending on Twitter.

Book of Boba Fett Not Trending on Twitter.

Buffy is, but not Boba.

Buffy is probably getting by on Halloween inertia but the Book of Boba Fett’s trailer just dropped on YouTube and it’s not getting any traction. When you see it you’ll know why.

I have no reason to watch this show. Admittedly, I was never much of a Boba-Boy but those that were don’t seem that excited either.

From what I can glean from the trailer, after murdering Bib Fortuna, Boba is promising to rule as an enlightened crime lord respecting the emotional needs of his capos. Exciting!

What’s next? A Star Wars show about yeast growing?

At least Temuera Morrison lost some weight for the role, and good for him. When you are sixty it probably does take something extra to get you back in the gym. Becoming an action star probably fits the bill.

If Gina Carano hadn’t happened maybe I could work up some interest, but even then it would be an effort.

As it is, this may be the first live-action Star Wars I skip entirely. Even as a reviewer.

    Yeah, that trailer is not very compelling.

    Talk about missing the dramatic potential of the concept. Boba is supposed to be one of the badassest badasses in the galaxy and he’s now a galactic crime lord. We don’t want to see him at a conference table like some IBM executive. We want to see him demonstrating that badassery by outwitting and out fighting those who stand in his way. Think the christening scene in The Godfather.

      It’s fascinating how this show seems intent to lay aside all of Fett’s basic characteristics.
      The quintessential SW bounty hunter… won’t be a bounty hunter here.
      A guy that took off his mask even less than Darth Vader… basically never wears it now.
      A classic Lone Wolf character… now with his own Asian sidekick.
      Even Temuera Morrison playing him is just the consequence of some dumb decisions George Lucas took twenty years ago – it’s not like he’s Boba’s original actor or anything.

        The approach seems, somehow, familiar.

      Based on his movements, he isn’t looking too spry for action scenes. Having his helmet off, isn’t going to help with that issue.

      Exactly Boba Fett was a gun for hire, a feared badass mercenary. Jabba was the crime boss. That’s what works.

    Millennials and Zoomers are more familiar with Canderous Ordo than Boba Fett.
    And Ordo has way more personality.

    wait, wait, wait.
    i’m supposed to be riveted to the screen by BIG BUSINESS CORPORATE POLITICAL GAMES?
    this is stupider than a rock named Geode.
    also, businesses “kill” each other all the time. tell me where AOL or Netscape or Atari or Blockbuster went. just because you’re “in business” doesn’t mean the only tool you have to deal with unhappy partners/customers/competitors/employees is appeasement. i mean, that would be like a tranny walking up to his employer and telling the Boss that he was going to be wearing a skirt and using the women’s rest room today.

    “I intend to rule with respect.”

    With respect, I rule that you’re an idiot.

      Respect might work with moisture farmers, but rival crime lords work on a different level. There’s also the issue of lower level employees wanting to be upper level ones, some willing to work with rival organizations. Jabba didn’t use fear just for the jollies (though he did enjoy it), he also knew someone in his position needed to be feared.

    The only thing worse than a negative review, is no review

    The dried up Asian bint sidekick is honestly the second most ridiculous “revival of a character that should be dead” in the franchise, after Creamy Sheev but above even Boba himself.

    That woman got gunshot and then left to expire and roast in the desert sun for at minimum a full day cycle, (literally from dawn to dusk). Din found her first and dismissed her as a carcass. But somehow Fett can stick random circuits and slides of metal in what was once her waist and she’s completely okay.

    No, screw that. “Fennec” is a cyborg zombie that can probably detach her top and bottom halves in the best case scenario, and either way she has no business walking and Boba should be getting hunted down or chased from civilization for wanton desecration of corpses right now.

    If Boba isn’t doing the big stick beat down on the bad guys why do I want to watch it? This should have been the Wild Bunch in space. I’m getting an accounting film?

    I am not surprised there is little interest in the ‘Book of Boba Fett’. I believe Kennedy & Disney have killed Star Wars for the majority of the fans. The magic is gone imo.

      nah. Prohibition was violent as hell, with Mob bosses whacking and kneecapping people left and right. not a whole lot of respect for anybody who wasn’t willing to execute a hit on the Mob in retaliation.
      didn’t you hear? Boba is going to administer with RESPECT, brah.
      how is Boba going to keep his hos in line by RESPECTING them? his drug runners? his vig operations? when a gambler doesn’t make his account right to the bookie, Boba is just going to float him? what’s Boba going to do when a BOUNTY HUNTER goes sideways on him?
      respect, my ass. the first prerequisite of a Boss in the criminal underworld is that YOU DO NOT “RESPECT” THE LAW.

    Boba Fett was cool in the 80s and 90s because because we assumed there was some weird alien under the mask. Then with the prequels Lucas ruined the character by making Jango Fett just a Mexican and Boba Fett just a clone of him.
