Review: Chapter 5 of the Book of Boba Fett:
Did you spot the Womp rat in Beggar’s canyon? That was a Star Wars first. Which itself was a whole nod to Anakin Skywalker’s famous pod race in The Phantom Menace and Luke’s comment about the rats in A New Hope.The Naboo Star Fighter is of course a reference to those seen in The Phantom Menace as well.Dank Farrick! is clearly a favorite swear word of MandoDid you spot the giant Halo / Ringworld? Halo nerds are gonna claim it as being ‘seen’. I do.Sedaris mention’s the Starfighter as being faster than a Falthier – the species that featured in The Last Jedi. Finn rode one.Wizard! In TPM, Ani’s mate says to him, This is Wizard, Ani. The Wizard of Oz film was actually referenced in the Return of the Jedi.We saw some live action destruction of Mandalore with the Imperial Tie Bombers bombing cities. I think this is the first time we’ve actually seen bombing on this scale.In the Siege of Mandalore bombing scene, we also see the kind of droids that Vader sent out to Hoth in The Empire Strikes back, we personally refer to these as Mobieus droids.The K2SO? units mopping up any survivors appeared to be a reference to the Terminator films.”It’s brand new.
