Year-late review: ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

The Book of Boba Fett is a series that was probably better in theory than it turned out to be in practice. Its biggest problem is that its main character, played ever-so-seriously by Temuera Morrison, ends up being one of the least engaging figures among a cast of colorful supporting players and guest stars who consistently upstage him, pull the focus away from him, and suggest that their stories are more important than his.

This isn’t a problem per se, especially since those later chapters (five, six, seven) are devoted, in a rather compelling way, to following up the events of The Mandalorian‘s second season finale in a grand effort to undo its most significant final scenes.
