Robert Rodriguez Teases More “The Book of Boba Fett”

In a recent article, THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT showrunner and executive producer, Robert Rodriguez, has teased there might be a future for another chapter of the show. We all know Temuera wants to come back, but will this happen? Read the article below.

Robert Rodriguez teases a potential future for ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

2021’s The Book of Boba Fett doesn’t have a great reputation. The core concept of Fett taking over from Jabba the Hutt and becoming Tatooine’s newest mob boss has a ton of potential, though almost all of it was scuppered by a rushed production, unfocused storytelling, and some of the worst action scenes in the history of the franchise.

It’s telling that by far the best episodes of the show barely feature Fett at all, focus on Din Djarin and Grogu, and are essentially a sneaky The Mandalorian season 2.5.

But could The Book of Boba Fett ever return for a second season? Maybe the lessons of the past could be learned and we’d see him reclaim his position as the biggest badass in Star Wars? Heck, maybe for once we’d even see this crime lord commit some crimes! If there is a second season planned, showrunner Robert Rodriguez is keeping his lips sealed as he hinted in an interview with i09.

“I’m sworn to secrecy. I wish I could tell you. I know all the answers to what you’re asking, but I can’t say.”

It seems clear that Temuera Morrison will return as Fett at some point, likely in Dave Filoni’s theatrical movie announced at the Star Wars Celebration. Until then, Rodriguez is just happy to wax lyrical about how much fun it is to step behind the camera and shoot some Star Wars:

“Everything you saw every day… it didn’t feel like you were seeing behind the scenes. It felt so real. The sets were so real. Even the volume was so real that you felt like you were in Star Wars… You know, there’s these’s things called ‘Rock Camp’ that if you want to go play with [Aerosmith guitarist] Joe Perry or something, you pay money to get on stage for two seconds with him? This is what a director would pay money to do. To have Star Wars camp. To get to direct and edit and be part of the Star Wars universe just as an experience is one of my favorite experiences because it was just a dream come true.”

Rodriguez is a great director and should have knocked the dusty, vaguely Western-themed The Book of Boba Fett out of the park. We’re still confused that he fumbled the ball, so a second season where he could right some of these wrongs would be most welcome.

In the meantime, Temuera Morrison is still all over Star Wars, and happy to voice and play Clone Troopers wherever he can, so at least he isn’t going anywhere.
