    1
    There's a new trailer for the upcoming series on Disney+:
    https://ca.news.yahoo.com/boba-fett-...142736350.html

    All of the Mandalorian fans are likely just as interested in Boba's and sidekick Fenneck's doings. How are these two characters going to make their existence accepted by other residents? How will they be making credits?

    How many Baby Yoda/Grogu references might be made in the series?

    I've seen action figures for the show advertised online. Lots of pre-orders for anything Mandalorian-related.

    At the very least, it seems Disney+ is going to have a min. of 3-4 months (assuming 4 eps/month plus any behind the scenes special looks)of Boba/Mandalorian content to keep subscribers using its service. Season 3 of The Mandalorian should follow week after Boba Fett's Book concludes for Season 1.

    38min episode.
    As the end credits run, Disney+ suggests viewing Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett. Good for fans of the character or anyone wanting to see the huge merchandise museum near the end of the segment (seriously-owner worked at Lucasfilm and he has LOTS). Bonus-there are clips of Temura Morrison with hair from when he played Boba Fett's father in a movie (one of the ones I have yet to see)

    Ick factor warning for first few minutes of show (how did props and set design come up with some of the sets??). Not an easy one to watch but I have questions. Boba and Fennec have a chippy partnership which reminds me of the sparring between Han and Chewie or Luke. Serious parkour props to the actors and stunt people during the big action scenes. There had to be a hot tub or sauna session that filming day for all those sore muscles!

    Did Temura Morrison get any special scalp treatments given his character's head is exposed to different elements for extended periods of time in the first episode?

    I watched the 38 min episode of Boba Fett with a bit of aggravation. Moved too slow for me, kind of terrible acting by the main guy? I'll wait it out and give it another chance to win me over in the next few episodes.

    Otoh, I really loved Hawkeye! I finally binged the 6 episodes. More often than not I've enjoyed Vera Farmiga in her roles,
    ( Bates Motel Mom the best! ) and her Mom role in this was no different. Jeremy Renner? Yeah, I can tolerate the guy....lol

    OK, Mando fans-see if you can spot these characters when BOBA Fett arrives for first time (on back of woolly creature) in Mos Espa in Ep. 3 of Book of Boba Fett (during the dream sequence as Boba has lots of tough dreams): *aka FAN SERVICE*

    The female spaceship mechanic and her 3 droids walking by

    The familiar stormtrooper helmets on spikes (part of the original Mandalorian Season 1 trailers)

    The silver C-3P0 unit

    The R2D2 looking unit on a cargo speeder (same one that Mando dives into during season 1 episode while shooting his way out to the Ravencrest with groggy Baby Yoda)

    I had hoped for a Fennec backstory-focussed episode! But it was not to be. I watched this morning before my friend came to take me out for library and errands.

    So I've tried really hard no wait for at least a few episodes to be release before I get into this...
    ...and I think today's the day I mini-binge and watch the 4 available episodes.
    Slow day at work, doing monotonous work...so I'll watch and work.

    Episode 4, the best one so far, imo. However, I nearly had a mini heart attack when I heard...
    skip ahead to exactly 46 seconds

    All is well (relatively speaking) in the Star Wars universe!
