The season finale of Star Wars’ The Book of Boba Fett aired on Disney+ with an action-packed ending to be loved by many.
The Book of Boba Fett follows the story of Boba Fett, one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy, after his escape from his fatal swallowing by the sarlacc. Whilst he was thought to have met his demise, it was definitive and he returned after escaping the sarlacc’s digestive system.
With a mashup of flashbacks and present-day scenes, the series allowed fans to gain knowledge on how exactly Boba Fett escaped and what happened to him afterwards.
The finale of the Disney+ series brought many beloved characters together: Boba Fett himself, Fennec Shand, Mando, Grogu, Cad Bane, the mod biker gang, Peli Motto, Black Krrsantan, and Boba Fett’s new pet Rancor. With the Pyke Syndicate out to steal Jabba the Hutt’s old territory from Boba Fett in order to trade spice on the planet, a showdown took place on Tatooine to establish Boba Fett’s dominance.
Boba Fett and his supporters found themselves outgunned in the final conflict by the Pyke’s fighters and weaponry. Until Boba Fett rode his new Rancor pet into battle to fight off the remaining droids. But when he came face-to-face with Cad Bane, the Rancor ran off, leaving Fett and Bane in a standoff.
After a while of epic fighting, Boba Fett eventually won, stabbing and killing Bane with his Tusken Gaderffii Stick. When Mando attempted to tame the frightened Rancor, he entered a losing battle. Then it was up to Grogu to use the force to save his friend and tame the beast.
By the end of the episode, Mando and Grogu were reunited, Boba and Fennec were roaming their Mos Espa territory, and the Pyke Syndicate were running scared. The only thing left to be wrapped up was the fate of Cobb Vanth, and with a post-credits scene showing the sheriff in Boba Fett’s healing bacta tank whilst Stephen “Thundercat” Bruner prepared to work some mod magic on him, fans were left with a sense of closure.
With the epicness of battle, wholesome cuteness of Grogu, and satisfying closure to end the chapter of The Book of Boba Fett, what was there for fans not to love?
