Summary: After having usurped the throne of Jabba the Hutt’s criminal empire from Bib Fortuna, begins his new reign. We also learn how he escaped the Sarlacc Pit.
Review: As someone who had read Tales From Jabba’s Palace, I knew about how Fett had escaped the Pit. I loved the ending scene fro last season’s finale of The Mandalorian. So I thought it was cool to actually see Fett’s escape restablished.
I liked this quote from Boba Fett: “Jabba ruled with fear. I shall rule with respect.” We see some examples of this, particularly in his treatment of the Gamorreans. It pays off, too.
My main problem with this episode is it felt more like a prologue than a premiere. This made the episode seem slow. I did enjoy it, though, and I’m eager to see where it goes.
