The wait is finally over. The Book of Boba Fett’s premiere chapter has dropped on Disney+, and it’s packed with just the kind of action and mystery you’d expect from the launch of a series about one of the most talked-about characters in Star Wars history. Once again, Youtini is back to keep you up to date on what’s happening in each episode.

Over the next few months, we’ll follow up each new episode of The Book of Boba Fett with a quick recap while you’re excitedly yelling in our Discord (don’t forget those spoiler tags!) and waiting for our weekly Bounty Hunt live stream. 

While we’ll stick to recapping each episode here, both our Discord and Bounty Hunt will be perfect places to discuss reactions and predictions for what’s to come. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS BELOW.

Let’s do the thing!

The opening moments of The Book of Boba Fett center on our title character undergoing a healing treatment in a bacta pod. As he rests, the audience is treated to a series of flashbacks revealing Fett’s inflammatory escape from the Sarlacc pit.

In these “dreams,” Jawas scavenge Fett’s armor directly from his body. Tuskens capture and enslave him, beating him into submission when he attempts to escape.

In present time, Fennec Shand coaxes Fett out of his healing session to give audience to patrons of Tatooine wishing to pay respects to the planet’s former resident crime lord. Fett and Shand don’t see eye to eye on how he should interact with the population, which leads to both being attacked in the streets.

While Shand pursues the attackers, Fett’s guards bring him back to the bacta pod where more flashbacks (dreams?) emerge. Fett confronts a dangerous sand creature (not another krayt dragon, sadly) and uses his chains to defeat it.

In the first chapter’s final moments, Boba Fett in flashback form towers over all on Tatooine proving once and for all that he demands - and even earns - respect.
