The Book of Boba Fett co-star Ming-Na Wen has suggested that, by the end of the seventh episode, fans will be looking at the series in a different light.
Talking to Radio Times, Wen explained that the story for The Book of Boba Fett has an abundance of unexpected elements to its main story that won’t become fully apparently until the last episode, with each entry introducing new elements to the story. Here’s what she said:
“I really hope that they want to go back and see the whole thing over again in a different light after, you know, knowing how things have – I’m so careful with my words here, how things have evolved, and all these other elements that have come into play… [Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau] know how to set up the pieces and make moves that you don’t even know are coming. And then suddenly it’s like [claps her hands together] ooh, checkmate… We’re waiting for that hit. And not just ’til the very last episode, like each and every episode there’s new moves and new elements that come into play that hopefully will surprise the fans. I know it surprised me.”
Lead actor Temuera Morrison previously told fans that they should be prepared to cry as the story plays out, so it’s possible that the series that has gone into such depths to humanize a quiet character best known for his brutality to a level that we’ll really feel for him by the time this story is over. Like she says, we’ll just have to watch The Book of Boba Fett and find out where our anti-hero’s journey takes him and his allies.
