The Book Of Boba Fett Episode 4 Easter Eggs And References From The Star Wars Series
Episode 4: "The Gathering Storm"
We're more than halfway through Season 1 of The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+, and Fett is uniting the other houses in order to take on the Pyke Syndicate. Of course, on Fett's journey, eagle-eyed fans may have spotted some pretty cool Easter eggs or other references to other Star Wars movies and TV shows.
This week's episode continued Fett's journey to be the Daimyo, which showed his first meeting with Fennec Shard--who seemingly fell from the sky. Additionally, more cyberpunk-like characters popped up adding some more flavor to Tatooine. However, Fett's goal is to be the true ruler of Mos Espa.
Below, you'll find Easter eggs and references throughout Episode 4 of The Book of Boba Fett. And if you're interested in other Easter eggs, check out everything we found in Episode 3.
This flying droid
Boba Fett uses a droid to map out the area where his ship is located. This is a probe droid, one that we haven't seen before, to the best of our knowledge. It is similar to IT-O Interrogator, DRK-1, and the Jedi training droid in design--although all three of those mentioned droids serve very specific purposes. Fett's droid seems to be just for reconnaissance missions, and nothing more.
Aurebesh is the Star Wars written language. For a few moments, we get to see what Fett's probe droid sees, and there is something written in Aurebesh at the top. The lettering changes a few times, and it's mostly nonsense, except for two moments. Once, the letter translates to "Ghost," and there's lots of "Ghosts" in the Star Wars universe--from Jedi "ghosts" to the ship from Star Wars: Rebels. Later, the lettering translates to "Lucas." Obviously, this is paying homage to Star Wars creator George Lucas, and not the 1986 Corey Haim movie.
Boba Fett's trusty ship is the Slave I. It's a Firespray-31 patrol and attack craft. These ships were used to patrol a prison moon, and Jango Fett stole one while working a job on Oovo IV--a prison moon. Boba inherited the ship after Jango's untimely death. Of course, since he's been around that ship his whole life, he's going to want it back.
Very briefly, we see the Slave I slam into a skiff. It looks exactly like the skiff that Fett and Han Solo had their battle on before Fett fell into the Sarlacc pit. There is no way to prove it's the same exact skiff, but it's the same model at least.
While Fett and Shard head to the Sarlacc pit to look for his armor, we see some debris next to it. Yep, that's Jabba the Hutt's fancy barge, all destroyed and baking in the sun. Keep in mind that this show takes place about five years after Boba Fett fell into the pit.
Remember the fantastic music from Jabba's palace? Well, that was performed by the Max Rebo Band, led by the blue alien and jizz-wailer musician Max Rebo. He's seen in Garsa Fwip's cantina as the house band, and he's playing next to a Bith--could that possibly be one of the members of Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes?
