‘THE MANDALORIAN’: Boba’s Back and He Ain’t No Joke(er)
As it turns out, Boba did come back and he came big in a big way. Robert Rodriguez’s chapter of The Mandalorianshowed us a side of Boba that we had only ever had a chance to imagine as fans. In fact, as many have said, from the minute we saw Slave I entering the atmosphere of Tython, we were treated to what is almost inarguably the best 10 minutes or so of Boba’s screen time in the Star Wars Universe. Boba showed himself to be an imposing physical threat capable of taking out a platoon of Stormtrooper (yeah, I know they’re just Stormtroopers) with extreme prejudice. Boba also showed himself to be, much like Din Djarin, a man bound by a code of honor, the same code of honor that binds Din.
