The Book of Boba Fett is finally here! Episode 1, “Chapter 1 Stranger in a Strange Land,” did not disappoint. Fans learned how Boba got out of the Sarlacc pit and came to be dressed in his famous Tusken Raider armor. Here are all The Book of Boba Fett Episode 1 Easter Eggs we found.
The Book of Boba Fett Episode 1 Easter Eggs
Jabba The Hutt's Palace
The episode starts in Jabba The Hutt's former palace, which is now the home to Bounty Hunters Boba Fett and Fennec Shand.
We see Boba Fett's body inside a Bacta Tank. In Star Wars lore, Bacta Tanks are used to allow bodies to recover/heal from their wounds.
Boba Fett is having flashbacks while in the Bacta Tank. We see flashes of his time on Kamino (the home planet of the Clones). We see a flashback of a young Boba Fett picking up his father's helmet after Jango Fett was killed in Attack of the Clones.
During Boba Fett's flashbacks, we also see how Boba Fett got out of the Sarlacc Pit. Boba Fett used the air tube from a fallen Stormtrooper to power his flame thrower and escape the Sarlacc.
The Jawas show up and steal Boba Fett's armor while he's passed out from exhaustion after escaping the Sarlacc. Now we know where Cobb Vanth got his helmet in Mandalorian Season 2.
The Tusken Raiders show up and save Boba Fett from the desert but also take him as a prisoner.
Boba Fett and another prisoner (a Rodian alien) and being guarded by a Tusken Raider massiff.
Here's where we first see Fennec Shand in the new show. She wakes Boba Fett from his recovery cycle in the Bacta Tank. She tells him “people have lined up to pay their respects.”
8D8 is the droid announcing each guest. This is 8D-series smelter droid that first appeared in Return of the Jedi. 8D8 has also been seen in the Star Wars Battlefront games.
Aqualish Don is the first to pay his respects, but neither Boba Fett nor Fennec Shand speaks his language. Boba Fett says, “we really need a Protocol Droid.” This is a callback to Return of the Jedi when Jabba uses C3-PO as his translator.
Dokk Strassi, a Trandoshan bounty hunter, is one of Boba Fett's former employers. He addresses Boba Fett as the Daimyo, which is Japanese for “great lord.”
Boba Fett thanks Dokk Strassi and welcomes him to Mos Espa (the Tatooine port city the palace is located). Dokk Strassi gives Boba Fett a Wookiee pelt as a gift. The Wookiee pelt is a callback to “The Clone Wars” Season 3 Episode 22 “Wookiee Hunt” in which we learn that Boba Fett's arm braid was Wookiee scalps from Wookiees he has killed in combat. Dokk Strassi is voiced by the co-showrunner and executive producer Robert Rodriguez.
Rather than bringing a tribute gift to Boba Fett, Mayor of Mos Espa, Mok Shaiz, sent his majordomo, who demands tribute be paid by Boba Fett. Shand tells him that getting to leave alive is all the tribute he will get.
Two Gamorreans (Jabba's former guards) and Bib Fortuna as tribute. Boba Fett opts to spare their lives assuming they will be loyal to him.
Boba Fett, Fennec Shand, and the Gamorreans walk the streets of Mos Espa. Boba Fett refuses to be carried around or do things the way the Hutts did despite Fennec assuring him it would be smoother if he “accepted their ways their ways.”
They go to the cantina, aka The Sanctuary, where we see Max Rebo and Figrin D'an playing. RX-24 can also be spotted in the cantina. They meet Garsa Fwip, The Sanctuary owner, at the Cantina.
As Boba Fett and Fennec Shand leave the cantina, they are attacked by a group of assassins.
Boba disintegrates one. This is a nod to Darth Vader's “no disintegrations” line from The Empire Strikes Back.
Bacta Tank, Take 2
Boba Fett goes into the Bacta Tank. He has more flashback dreams while in the tank. This time, Boba Fett is with a Tusken Raider Child who unties him and the Rodian and takes them into the desert to dig for water. Boba Fett mentions the town Anchorhead while in the desert. In A New Hope, Luke Skywalker offered to take Obi-Wan Kenobi to Anchorhead.
While digging for water, they uncover a huge sand creature. The Rodian accidentally awakens the creature and it attacks them, killing the Rodian. Boba Fett saves the Tusken child by using his chains to choke the sand monster, much in the way Princess Leia kills Jabba the Hutt in Return of the Jedi while she is chained to him.
Boba Fett and the Tusken Raider return to the camp with the sand creature's head as tribute. The leader offers Boba Fett a drink of water as a sign of acceptance and respect.
This acceptance and respect is the turning point and starts to explain why when we first see Boba Fett in “The Mandalorian” he is wearing Tusken Raider clothing and wielding Tusken Raider weaponry.
The narrator is the voice of legendary Patton Oswalt.
