One of the most anticipated books in recent history, The Mandalorian was a disappointment. Although its problems were minor, they prove that authors need to step back and take an honest look at their work as it approaches release.
The “Book of Boba Fett” is a book that was written in the year 2059. The book tells the story of how Boba Fett became one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy.
The Book of Boba Fett, a new Star Wars event series, opted to devote a whole episode to The Mandalorian, Din Djarin, and the decision drew a lot of praise from fans. While the majority of fans appear to like “Chapter 5: The Return of the Mandalorian,” there has been some discussion regarding whether Mando overshadowed Boba Fett in his own program. The Book of Boba Fett has had trouble connecting with certain Star Wars fans, but Mando’s episode did just well — so what’s the difference? After online debates within the Nation podcast employees erupted, the team finally got a chance to discuss it!

Star Wars fans who appreciated the deep-dive knowledge of The Book of Boba Fett – yet had no trouble bringing The Mandalorian in for a whole episode – were defended by Nation presenter Kofi Outlaw. As the destiny of Mandalore and its position in the New Republic period unfolds, Outlaw believes the Star Wars saga is weaving deeper conceptual linkages between Din Djarin and Boba Fett. Most importantly, he questioned why there is a need to pit one character against the other when having both is so much fun.
Producer Jim Viscardi, on the other hand, believes that The Mandalorian’s reappearance just serves to underscore how uninteresting Boba Fett’s tale has been (so far). Viscardi and Outlaw clashed over the idea that The Mandalorian has always been the superior series in the eyes of fans; as Outlaw recalls, The Mandalorian was panned for being “boring” or “aimless” in both seasons, unless Baby Yoda was onscreen, or big crossover guest stars (like Boba Fett) appeared to help anchor the back half of Season 2.
Janell Wheeler, the host, adores Mando and enjoyed the program – but she didn’t think the crossover was necessary. She has been loving Boba Fett on his own and believes he is deserving of his own series. Janell, on the other hand, prefers a’more, never less’ approach to material and believes Book of Boba Fett will make effective use of Din Djarin in the series’ final stretch.
Writer Connor Casey had a more balanced approach, claiming that The Book of Boba Fett was brilliant in idea but not in execution, and that a well-made solo Mando narrative (thanks to director Bryce Dallas Howard’s skills) truly hammered home the point. Casey (along with numerous other commentators) linked The Book of Boba Fett to Marvel’s The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, describing it as “strong at times, yet inconsistent at others.”
