The Book Of Boba Fett had a lot riding on its shoulders. It fell flat on its face, letting the Star Wars fans down. Here’s why The Book Of Boba fett can never be as good as The Mandalorian.


Fails To Set A New Benchmark

A Bar Set Too High

The Mandalorian was also predicted to fail when it hit Disney+. The reason it succeeded was not just because it had a damn good lead and an even better storyline. It was also because expectations were low. So when Din Djarin came and blew us all away with his adventures, we were doubly impressed. Star Wars was not known for its live action shows. The Mandalorian was a risky gamble that passed the acid test. The Book Of Boba Fett is right now filling the same shoes as its predecessor. Part of the reason it fails to make a dent is because the bar has been set so high that only a truly extraordinary show can hope to cross it. The Book of Boba Fett may not necessarily be a bad show but it refuses to budge from the upper-middle strata of mediocrity.


Din Djarin Is Obviously The Better Mandalorian

Din Djarin

Boba Fett came way before the Star Wars overlords at Lucasfilm even thought of Din Djarin. But right now, things are really looking up for Pedro Pascal’s character. the Mandalorian really lucked out by using Pascal’s wonderful acting chops coupled with the a few good writers that made his character development seem genuine and significant. Just him removing his helmet was a huge deal for Din Djarin. We will always remember that episode. A Mandalorian let go of the values he has been taught since childhood for a young foundling he now cares for. Boba Fett’s helmet ethics leave much to be desired for. The viewers like Din Djarin more than Boba Fett.

The Book Of Boba Fett Tries To Emulate The Mandalorian

Instead of being its own thing, The Book Of Boba Fett tries really hard to copy The Mandalorian. The show could have easily been The Sopranos set in outer space. Instead, The Book Of Boba fett is a fast-paced, mangled mess. despite being a Daimyo who can easily pull the strings from his throne, Boba still tries to do everything on his own. He has little pull in Tatooine. We understand that. But the show could have been a little more pensive and reflective to the story. The flawed execution and lack of attention to detail and the tone make the show a poor copy of The Mandalorian.


Too Predictable

Was This A Secret Vespa Promotion?

Up until now, the show has been nothing but super predictable. The flashbacks have been the only breath of fresh air in what seems like the most predictable show of 2022. The flaws are too many to count. Boba Fett prancing around town, immediately hiring up the muscle he desperately needs, and making short work of his foes, that’s not how what Star Wars fans envisioned The Book Of Boba Fett would be. The only exception to this rule is the Tusken Raiders’ tribe massacre.

Temuera Morrison Is A Terrible Choice For Boba Fett

Temuera Morrison

We are just going to put it out there. We know you all have been thinking the same thing but scared to say it out loud. The fact is – Temuera Morrison is a wonderful actor. There is no shred of a doubt about that. But his age does not permit him to portray the true Boba Fett. canonically speaking, even after the Sarlacc Pit fiasco, Fett should be in his mid to late Thirties. We know the dude has been through a lot, with constantly being fed into a Bacta Pod to survive. But the age factor is still a major issue. After he was completely healed in the earlier episode, he should be as fit and young as he originally was back then. The actor does not fit the character’s age.
