At the beginning of episode “The Gathering Storm” (1×04) of boba fett book (Jon Favreau, since 2021), the Serie about the legendary bounty hunter starwars what comes out of The Mandalorian (Favreau, since 2019), we plunge headlong into the dream memories of the character with the face of Temuera Morrison (Aquaman), and the custom of the brief transition in the colors of photography, the work of David Klein (Homeland), Dean Cundey (Return to the future) and Paul Hughen (I Am Trying to Break Your Heart), continues to draw our attention.
What they do afterwards is, finally, to reveal that what they tell us in the flashbacks is not limited to the events of Boba Fett’s own resurrection after his literal fall into Star Wars: return of the jedi (Richard Marquend, 1983); they also deal with those tied to his rise to the Daimio throne on Tatooine following Jabba the Hutt and Bib Fortuna; and in addition, of the missing pieces of his narrative puzzle from the chapter “The Gunslinger” (1×05) of The Mandalorian, which we appreciate. And even that the details about the cyborgs weren’t fanciful.
Delving into the mythical substance of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’
The Californian Bryce DallasHoward, daughter of director Ron Howard (An amazing mind) and initially an actress with roles like Ivy Walker in The forest (M. Night Shyamalan, 2004), the Gwen Stacy of Spider-Man 3 (Sam Raimi, 2007), Hilly Holbrook in maids and ladies (Tate Taylor, 2011), the Lacie Pound from the episode “Nosedive” (3×01) of BlackMirror (Charlie Brooker, since 2011) or Sheila Eileen in Rocketman (Dexter Fletcher, 2019), has directed “The Gathering Storm”; his third contribution after “Sanctuary” (1×04) and “The Heiress” (2×03) in The Mandalorian.
She is in charge of answering the previous questions; and another one, which the public and film journalists had already considered: the whereabouts of Boba Fett’s recognizable ship; who was called Slave I from the original trilogy of starwars and, now, Firespray so that it is not offensive, we do not know exactly to whom. We like that they show us new nooks and crannies of what was Jabba the Hutt’s palace to get to it; and there is no doubt that Bryce Dallas Howard has done good visual work with what was written by Jon Favreau (The Lion King).

And that they have decided on a final confrontation with the bloody sarlacc it seems to us a success; adds dramatic and mythic substance to boba fett book.
The musical echoes of ‘The Mandalorian’
Most of “The Gathering Storm” is devoted to the past of the flashbacks from the beginning; and the last third, to the present, in which they could not miss out on that curious character that is Krrsantan (Carey Jones), the fearsome wookiees bounty hunter, and develop your story. In a way that, on the other hand, favors an eloquent speech Garsa’s Fwip’s Jennifer Beals; Known for her roles as Alex Owens in flashdance (Adrian Lyne, 1983), especially the Zoe Landau of Lie to Me (Samuel Baum, 2009-2011) and others.
The final meeting, which could very well have taken place in any of the classic mobster films, from the trilogy of The Godfather (Francis Ford Coppola, 1972-1990) to One of ours (Martin Scorsese, 1990), or even in series with a dynamic similar to that of Game of Thrones (David Benioff and DB Weiss, 2011-2019), leads to a conversation about the immediate future of boba fett book; and the echoes of the score by Ludwig Göransson (Tenet) for The Mandalorian they make us rub our hands for what may be yet to come.
