What details present in episode 4 of the “Boba Fett Book” aroused the incomprehension and anger of fans of the Star Wars universe?
A week after the “case” of the Vespas, the series The Book of Boba Fett is once again being talked about for the wrong reasons. In question, the presence in the fourth episode of a scene having led to a major inconsistency in the chronology of the program.
In this new adventure, the former bounty hunter recovers his ship detained in Jabba’s palace to “settle accounts” with former enemies, and in particular the sarlaac in which he almost died. More than a simple matter of revenge, Boba especially hopes to recover his armor in the stomach of the creature.
But this scene makes absolutely no sense, since the same Boba Fett was seen coming out of the sarlaac, wearing his armor (the only defense against the sarlaac’s stomach acids)… in the first episode of this same Star Wars series! Therefore, why did the latter seek to attack the watch, knowing that he would not find his equipment there? Memory loss, or maybe he didn’t dare admit to Fennec Shand that he just wanted to annihilate the creature with a blaster?
Incidentally, another detail greatly disturbed fans of the Star Wars universe in this fourth episode. The return of Boba Fett’s iconic ship has indeed led to a misunderstanding among viewers. The name of the vehicle was supposed to have been changed: from “Slav-I” (deemed too sensitive by Disney due to the use of the word “slave”), the ship had been renamed by the company “Firespray” (“Aerosol in French (sic)), a name that had not won the support of the fans…
Is it for this reason that this change of name was ultimately not taken into account by the official StarWars.com website, even if the name was taken into account by the interpreter of Boba Fett himself, Temuera Morrison. At present, the spacecraft therefore has two official names: “Slav-I” and “firespray”.
