Seldom does a t. v. show give viewers what they really want. In the final episode of Season 2 of The Mandalorian, Disney did just that as Luke Skywalker made a cameo and filled the hearts of Star Wars fans worldwide. Today as The Book of Boba Fett has been released for streaming, I can not help but wonder if the show will have a moment like The Mandalorian?
Star Wars is filled with beloved classic characters which is why when Luke Skywalker appeared on The Mandalorian it felt right. The old Star Wars magic was back and it was glorious. Hopefully that will continue going forward.
If The Book of Boba Fett follows suit, then the show could really go a long way in washing the bad taste left from the sequel trilogy. It then would become critical to bring the right character back.
If you remember Jabba the Hutt’s spokesmen Bib Fortuna also had a cameo in The Mandalorian but was killed by Boba Fett so he’s out of the running. There is one character who would both fit the timeline and make sense, Han Solo.
Boba Fett and Han Solo have had some interesting moments starting in A New Hope through Return of the Jedi. Not to mention the whole carbon freezing chamber, cargo hold moment in The Empire Strikes Back.
If Solo is brought back (or like Luke Skywalker, his likeness) it would create more trust from fans who lost trust in Disney to create quality Star Wars material.
I am not saying this will happen, I do not know any rumors nor do I have any connection to spoilers. I just have the hope that given due to the way The Mandalorian Season 2 ended on such a high, feel good note that Disney will carry that into the Boba Fett streaming show.
