Our friends at Den of Nerd, have a hell of a rumor for The Book of Boba Fett. The upcoming Disney+ Star Wars series is shrouded in mystery. After the events of season two of The Mandalorian, we haven’t heard much from the show, until now. Den of Nerd has a scoop that Luke Skywalker and Grogu are going to appear in The Book of Boba Fett. It would make sense that the series acts as a season three for The Mandalorian, except from the point-of-view of Boba Fett.
Their report has a bunch of details about the “Filoni-Verse”. Not only are we getting Din, Luke, and Grogu in The Book of Boba Fett, but Thrawn is coming as well. They teased this in the Ahsoka Tano episode of The Mandalorian. Den Of Nerd has some solid sources. Their track record on things like this is good.
How Would Luke And Grogu Fit In The Book Of Boba Fett?
With the addition of all these characters, what are they building towards with this? Adding Thrawn, Luke, Grogu, Din Djarin, and more, how does it all fit? Thrawn is a “Thanos” level villain for Star Wars fans out there. He’s not just someone you throw into a story. If he’s being added, that means we’re getting an entire arc built around his character. In the power vacuum between The Empire and the First Order, someone has to step in and fill the Emperor’s shoes. The sequel trilogy sort of complicates matters.
The sequels made absolutely no mention of any of this. It could be part of the motivation why Luke is a recluse in the sequel films. Outside of that, Dave Filoni has all the trust in the world of Star Wars fans. He can do no wrong. If he creates a mini or alternate version of Heir To The Empire, then so be it. That would be awesome in our book.
Either way, this rumor is pretty exciting. We haven’t gotten much word about The Book of Boba Fett in a while. The show debuts on Disney+ this December 2021.
So, what do you think of this rumor? Do you think that Luke and Grogu are showing up in The Book of Boba Fett?
