Where Is Boba Fett?

After repeatedly watching episode 1 of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’, Star Wars newest addition to the Mandalorian Chronicle, this reviewer has come to the conclusion that the actual whereabouts of Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) is a mystery. It is possible that Boba Fett could still be in the belly of the beast, namely, a Krayt Dragon, which maybe causing him to dream two different dreams as his subconscious attempts to warn him of the increasing level of danger he is in. The reason for this conjecture is that the belly of the Krayt Dragon is a warm, soft and seemingly safe place that his conscious and subconscious mind would have to struggle to hold on to the reality that he is being eaten alive.

To continue with this theory there is also the bacta pod. Boba Fett emerges from this pod after being awakened by Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen). The bacta pod and the belly of the Krayt Dragon share some similar traces, which are that both are warm, wet, and seemingly safe, like a giant womb. In contrast, the former heals and the latter devours; yet with healing and dying there some degree of pain.

This review is all conjecture to what reality Boba Fett is really living, but he appears to be in a cycle of being a victim and then a savior. If there is any truth to this mad theory, then Boba Fett’s current state and whereabouts could be masked by an effect of a hallucinogenic drug like substance injected by the Krayt Dragon into its victim to keep them asleep and  pliant while it eats  them.

This jumping back and fore in the dreams or realities of Boba Fett makes it hard to determine where Boba Fett is and whether he is truly in danger.

All in all, episode 1 of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ leaves the viewers with more than a few questions about the fate of this Mandalorian. 

A new Chapter in ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ will stream every Wednesday on Disney’s Plus.

Anne Rice, the #1 Queen of Horror Has Past

I am very sad to say writer Anne Rice past away on December 11, 2021. Anne Rice was one the most talented and prolific writers of our time. She was my very favorite writer and one that even before social media was a thing, I could actual communicate off and on with since reading the first printing of her novel, "Interview with a Vampire"way back in  the 70S. From that time I have collected all  of her novels, but admittedly "The Vampire Chronicles" will always be my favorite.
