With a series of only seven episodes, it seems there's plenty more for 'Star Wars' fans to look forward to in the coming weeks.
According to lead actor Temuera Morrison, 'The Book of Boba Fett' is "full of surprises", with the season finale, in particular, being the one to pay the closest attention to.
Speaking together in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week, Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, who play Boba Fett and Fennec Shand in the Disney+ series, shed light on what's to come further down the line in the coming episodes.
When asked about what there is to look forward to in the remaining five episodes, Wen reportedly "had to stop Morrison from saying too much" about the season finale.
Composing himself, Morrison teased of the remainder of the series: "Yes, full of surprises. The Book of Boba ‘full of surprises’ series. Yeah, we’ve got some good stuff coming up. Ooh, wait till episode seven, wow!"
So, let's see if next week's episode of 'The Book of Boba Fett' delivers on one of those "surprises" that Morrison has spoken of. With two episodes under its belt, the reaction to 'The Book of Boba Fett' has so far been quite mixed.
Episode one, 'Stranger in a Strange Land', laid the groundwork, albeit in a way that most fans were expecting. Thankfully, with the first chapter out of the way, episode two 'The Tribes of Tatooine' managed to ramp up the stakes of the series by introducing some potential adversaries the bounty hunter will need to look out for in the future - Jabba the Hutt's revolting twin cousins (and their armoured Wookie). Boba Fett's backstory with the Tuskens was also given a much-needed jolt of energy/trippiness.
Morrison and Wen have been on the acting scene since the '80s, and with them both now aged 61 and 58 respectively, they admit that it is a "dream" to be a part of this series within the 'Star Wars' franchise at this time of their lives.
Wen said: "This is something that I fantasized about as a young kid, 10 or 11 years old… I’d be in my own living room, imagining myself as a Jedi or a female Han Solo. And now it’s happened. So I hope I’m an example that you can make your dreams come true."
While Morrison took a more yoghurty approach: "What it means to me is like when you go to the shop and check the yoghurt’s used-by date. I was getting close to my used-by date. So now, what it means for me is that my used-by date may have moved a little bit forward."
