Boba Fett, Kindhearted Crime Lord, Is Confusing Many ‘Star Wars’ Fans

Jan 14, 2022

The Book of Boba Fett has given the famed bounty hunter roughly 200 times the screen time he ever got in the actual Star Wars movies, and fans are finding their perception of what they thought he’d be like altered significantly by the content of the Disney Plus show. For decades, Boba Fett was seen as the ultimate badass, a mostly silent dude in cool armor that went on countless wild adventures in EU lore. Here, he may still be a badass, and yet Disney has gone a direction that many were not expecting. Boba Fett seems to be…a really nice guy? Even though the plot of The Book of Boba Fett has Fett trying to coalesce power as a crime lord, as he says, he wants to do it with “respect, not fear.” That has resulted in a number of situations where Fett shows a surprising amount of restraint and mercy. The Book of Boba Fett Disney Is this…good? Bad? Once again, it’s sparked a lot of debate among Star Wars fans. In the past three episodes, Boba Fett has spared: Recommended For You Two Gamorrean guards offered to him as tribute. The life of an assassin who tries to kill him on the street. The lives of captured members of a merchant collective who have murdered Tusken raiders with their hover train many times. The lives of a gang of street kids who he instead recruits to work for him. And then the life of a merchant who tried to trick him into killing them in the first place. A Wookie gladiator for hire who tries to murder him in his bacta tank. And now he’s the proud owner of a baby Rancor who he gives scritches too. Sometimes, I think this works just fine. For instance, I could see a different path where Boba Fett escaped from imprisonment by Tusken Raiders and goes on a rampage and murders them all. And yet, what actually happened, Fett being adopted and trained as a member of the tribe, was far more interesting and gave a lot more depth to the character. But the amount of offenses and literal assassination attempts Fett has overlooked at this point is starting to get a little bit absurd. I’m not sure that Fett needs to be “The Punisher” as some have said, and yet I agree with the general sentiment that he’s acting quite a bit out of character at least based on the perception of the character we’ve had for all these years. And even though the show is about the criminal underworld of Tatooine, I can’t say the vibe of the series (complete with colorful moped-riding teenagers) really matches the setting so far. I though episode 2 was really good, but everything feels very uneven, especially Fett’s own behavior in a lot of situations. It’s too early to tell where all this leads and what Fett might do in the future. But it’s pretty weird to have him and Fennec playing Good Cop/Murder Cop where suddenly of all people, Boba Fett is a beacon of wisdom and restraint, probably even more so than The Mandalorian. We’ll see where things go, but I do agree that a lot of this feels pretty strange.
