Today we share some The Book of Boba Fett talk from Morrison, Wen and Rodriguez. Namely stars Temuera Morrison and Ming Na Wen, along with Producer and director of three episodes Robert Rodriguez. TV Insider caught up with the trio ahead of the premier on December 29th. So, what did they have to say about the upcoming The Book of Boba Fett?
“He’s hard and raw, but he changes a lot,” says Morrison. “He’s had a tough upbringing in terms of losing his dad and having to find his way and figure out who he is, where he’s from. He has a few chips on his shoulders.”
“I always loved Boba Fett and that there wasn’t very much known about him,” he says. “Now I think Boba will be synonymous with a really great time. There are a lot of challenges that he deals with in a very unorthodox way.”
“Not that much time has passed [since],” explains Wen about where the new story begins. “We’re setting up this underworld that has never really been explored.”
“They definitely get outgunned a lot,” teases Rodriguez. We’ll quickly see how well these two warriors rise to the occasion. Wen likens it to The Godfather. “Boba grew up with that sort of military training,” she says. “Fennec, she grew up on the streets. The combination of their knowledge and experience really complements each other.”
“Boba has his eye on trying to be different [from Jabba] and maybe Fennec doesn’t necessarily see it that way,” Rodriguez hints. “But they make a great team.”
“I always like action that tells you something about the character,” he says. Wen sums it up. “They’re doers, not talkers,” she says.
I guess we will find out soon enough. I deifnitley like the idea that this show is about exploring the Star Wars Underworld properly for the forst time. That’s pretty much exactly what I had hoped we’d get from The Book of Boba Fett anyway.
