The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2 Easter Eggs
*Spoiler Alert* If you haven't watched The Book of Boba Fett Episode 2, this is your spoiler warning.
The episode begins with Fennec Shand bringing back the assassin she captured in last week's episode. He curses at Boba Fett but offers no information when questioned. 8D8 says the assassin is from the Order of the Night Wind. He is thrown into the Rancor Pit. Eventually, the assassin admits the mayor hired them.
The Assassin, who claimed to be from the Order of the Night Wind, is similarly dressed to Deathstick, a Dathomirian assassin for the Crimson Dawn and Kouhun during the reign of the Galactic Empire in days following Empire Strikes Back.
Mayor Mok Shaiz is voiced by the co-showrunner and executive producer Robert Rodriguez.
In the cantina, we see R-3X, our now favorite droid DJ Rex from Disney Parks. We first met RX-24 in 1987 as the Audio-Animatronic protagonist on the Star Tours attraction at Disney Parks, voiced by Paul Reubens. Depicted as an RX-series pilot droid who works for the Star Tours travel company piloting a StarSpeeder 3000 spacecraft. Rex appeared in the Star Tours: The Adventures Continue attraction prequel set 5 years before the timeline of the original Star Tours attraction where he is a new albeit malfunctioning droid in the queue for the attraction. While not considered canon, the attractions are considered part of the Star Wars legend continuity.
Rex was officially introduced as canon in the “Star Wars Rebels” animated series in 2014, where he works as a pilot droid for Garel Interstellar Excursions. At some point after his tour with Rebels and Star Tours, he crashed on the planet of Batuu and was reprogrammed into DJ R-3X and is DJ Rex at Oga's Cantina in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge in both Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
The Hutt Twins come to Mos Espa to try to stake claim to Jabba the Hutt's territory. The twins are cousins of Jabba the Hutt and belong to one of the Hutt Clan families.
Black Krrsantan arrived with the Hutt Twins. Black Krrsantan, nicknamed “Santy,” “BK,” or “Black K” by Doctor Aphra, was a male Wookiee bounty hunter whose career began during the rule of the Galactic Empire into the era of the New Republic.
Boba Fett goes into the Bacta Tank again. He has another flashback dream while in the tank. This time, Boba Fett's flashback involves his time with the Tusken Raiders. Boba is being trained to fight with the Tusken Raiders' weapons.
Conveyex Transport Cargo Train
Boba Fett sees a train that looks similar to the 20-T Railcrawler Conveyex Transport train or the Imperial Conveyex Transport train appear and begin shooting at the Tuskens as it races through the desert. However, this train doesn't run on a track, similar to the cargo train guests are trying to catch in the Star Wars: Millennium Falcon – Smugglers Run attraction in Star Wars Galaxy's Edge at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
Luke, are these your friends?
At Tosche Station, we see Luke Skywalker's friends, Fixer and Cami, attacked by an alien speeder bike gang.
Tell me Star Wars is a DUNE knock off without telling me it's a DUNE knock off
Boba and the Tusken Raiders stop the train and interrogate the leader of the train. Boba asks if they are carrying Sansanna Spice from the Kessel slave mines. Sansanna Spice was first seen in “The Clone Wars.” Many of the prisoners resemble the DUNE Pyke Syndicate, whose leader, Lom Pyke was obsessed with Dune Spice.
Boba tells the leader that The Dune Sea desert is Tusken territory and in order to travel through it with their cargo, they have to pay a fee. The name of the desert is a nod to Frank Herbert's DUNE series, which is commonly known to have been a large influence for George Lucas when creating Star Wars. DUNE similarly features spice and mines, among other things.
