    With how often it is for Star Wars characters’ journeys to intertwine, and with how many Legacy characters appeared in Mando Season 2, who do you think we’ll see show up in The Book of Boba Fett?

    I personally think Cobb Vanth and the ESB bounty hunters are all very likely but am eager to see if I’m right or wrong!

    I'm so looking forward to this show. I expect, like yourself, that Cobb Vanth and the crew of bounty hunters from ESB will be there. I'd also expect perhaps Cad Bane. I would love to see Sebulba, but I'm not sure he would fit in. Is it December yet? LOL

    Unless another dragon showed up and swallowed him, Cobb Vanth should appear in the show. I also expect to see the expected creatures from Jabba’s palace residing in their expected corners of the room. And the Sarlaac should appear as well (flashback)
    Other than than, I don’t expect anyone “major” to appear, (unless you count flashback Han in carbonite counts as a Han Solo cameo.)

    I can imagine a cameo by one of them... probably 4-LOM or Zuckass though. Showing IG-88 would seem redundant after IG-11's role in Mando. Bossk (as much as I love him) and Dengar's appearance are the most dated from TESB, so they feel least likely.

    Would like this - but how old would he be by then?

    This must be a given, surely. Olyphant deserves more screen time.

    Given the crime lord nature of the show, my money is on the re-canonization of Mara Jade. :D

    I would want Dengar since he featured prominently in the first book of the Bounty Hunter's War Trilogy by K.W. Jeter.

    I'm actually really curious about Boba's motives here. To me it seems that setting up shop on Tatooine is a step backwards, but maybe that's intentional -- Fett is finally back and he has some loose ends to tie up. Which makes me think we will maybe see more legacy characters than new characters.

    Han & Chewie, Luke, Leia, Lando all seem like obvious targets, though they have no business being on Tatooine. And I might be setting the bar a bit too high there.... just a bit.

    I do kinda wonder how the show would handle Han/Luke/Leia etc. I agree they seem like interesting targets, but they'd be difficult to cast, especially with the mixed reception to that came in the last season of Mando.

    Chewie or the droids would be a little easier, though. Maybe Fett can start with them, and find little solace in revenge, abandoning that path?

    I definitely think we have a good chance of getting at least one ESB bounty hunter, though. They're all heavily in costuming (Zuckuss, 4-LOM, IG-88, Bossk) or at least facially obscured enough to be easily cast (Dengar). Perhaps Dengar especially so, given that we could see how he ended up in his TROS state:
    [​IMG]

    I'd love to see Cad Bane. I won't get my hopes up, but it'd be great.

    An old Rex seems possible, too. I know we expected that as a possibility in Mando S2, but it could still happen here, and without needing another actor!

    A few other possibilities:
    -Ahsoka
    -Omega
    - Jas Emari
    - Embo
    - Mercurial Swist (he's still alive, right?)

    I'm not as familiar with Legends anymore, but a few ideas:
    -Durge
    -Xixor/Guri
    - Borvo the Hutt

    While heavily implied in the arts-of books, it's not been confirmed that Rothgar Deng is the bounty hunter Dengar, post reconstructive surgery.

    Of course, it is totally conceivable that LFL held back on connecting these dots specifically becuase they intend to do so in a high-profile project, like TBoBF.

    It would be a waste of a fun rumor if he's not.

    I too was pondering whether a Hutt would come back looking to reclaim some territories and avenge Jabba in some way. Yeah, Fett had nothing to do with Jabba's execution, but he is sitting in his seat...

    I would like to see 4-lom and Zuckuss. They were cool looking, and I'd like to see them in action. Not that I'll think it'll happen.

    If I was boba fett I would be looking for Han. But maybe revenge isn't his game.

    For as cold a man as he can be, I think he's more driven by emotion than even he realizes. Otherwise his armor wouldn't have meant anything to him, nor his father's legacy, Jabba's palace, etc....

    I think revenge is exactly his game.

    Possibly.
    I think he's more into money and power. He basically placed himself as crime Lord of Tatooine. Being a Bounty Hunter money is everything. Perhaps he can use his newly claimed power to exact revenge.

    I agree, but with his skills he could have achieved money and power almost anywhere in the galaxy.

    He has to be doing it on Tatooine, in his own armor, in Jabba's palace for some other reason than just money and power.

    I think his esoteric code means more to him than money, it's all about the bounty, but the book of Boba Fett might shed some more light on Fett's motives. A bounty seems trivial when one sits on a throne.

    I think everything you listed absolutely enhances/ works with "I'm just a simple man trying to make his way in the universe".


    Jango called Kamino home, Boba likes Tatooine... maybe it's that simple.

    Which means now is the time to bring back Rotta “Stinky” the Hutt.

    Real talk though, it would be kinda interesting to see Rotta try to avenge his father’s legacy against Boba Fett, who’s all about upholding hus father’s legacy.
