Star Wars: 'The Book of Boba Fett' Another Disney Plus Disappointment

The first episode of The Book of Boba Fett has been released on Disney Plus and sadly it's another disappointment following Marvel on Disney Plus.

The episode comes off as pretty lame and low-budget and does nothing to leave me wanting for more.

The character of Boba Fett comes off as weak and unable to lead and the opposite of how the character was portrayed in previous appearances. Why would I want to continue to watch his story?

But, hey, Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand is badass and the best character in the show. It's her I want to watch.

"Get me back to the bacta pod," says it all.

The flashback scenes, of which there were many, were pretty decent as we got to see what happened to Boba following Return of the Jedi, but they probably should have done more with the Sarlacc scene, but since the episodes are so short and the season consists of only seven episodes, they can only do so much.

Also, since a majority of the episode featured Boba Fett helmetless I found whenever Temuera Morrison donned the helmet to be rather lackluster: Why bother wearing it?

The present-day(?) scenes were really bad, especially the "big" fight scene with the wannabe Assassin Creed goons. Who would have any respect for Boba Fett after watching that? Boba has become a big wuss.

And the Cantina scene, while cool, felt like it was just thrown in there for the sake of nostalgia. It was much too quick.

"Move along. Move along."

I give it a 5 out of 10.

Check out some reactions below that are in line with my own views.

Boba Fett also has an 85% Rotten Tomatoes Critics Score and the Audience doesn't think all that highly of it either as it is at an 81% Audience Score. For comparison, The Mandalorian has a 93% Critics Score and a 91% Audience Score.
