  • ANDRE: Today we're talking "The Book the Boba Fett"'s

  • great escape, reliving some epic scenes from the series

  • with this weekend's "Star Wars" host Kristin Baver,

  • getting prehistoric with "The Ice Age Adventures

  • of Buck Wild," and so much more.

  • I'm Andre.

  • And I'm Jenny.

  • This is "What's Up, Disney+," where

  • we talk all things Disney+.

  • [UPBEAT MUSIC]

  • ANDRE: In "The Book of Boba Fett,"

  • we follow legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett as he

  • takes over Jabba the Hutt's throne with mercenary

  • Fennec Shand by his side.

  • Together, they must navigate the criminal underworld

  • on Tatooine.

  • Andre and I love this series, and today, we're

  • talking about Boba's great escape in the first episode,

  • brought to you by LG OLED. Life's Good.

  • In "The Mandalorian," we learn that Boba

  • Fett has escaped the Sarlacc pit, but we don't know how.

  • Fans have been guessing how and if he managed to escape,

  • and we finally have the answer in this opening scene

  • of "The Book of Boba Fett."

  • We see him fight his way out of the Sarlacc pit,

  • only to be captured by Tusken Raiders.

  • I loved seeing the scene.

  • After years, we finally get to see how he got out of there.

  • Finally.

  • I lost sleep over this.

  • And it was nasty up in there.

  • JENNY: It was very detailed, and I almost smelled it.

  • ANDRE: Yeah, yeah, a little claustrophobic, you know?

  • So yeah.

  • I don't know how he did it.

  • ANDRE: And then to get out of it only to get

  • caught after is like, man, what a day Boba Fett's having.

  • What luck.

  • It's a really, really awesome scene,

  • great for the first episode.

  • And there's nothing like watching this scene

  • on your LG OLED in Filmmaker Mode

  • to really get the full experience.

  • JENNY: Plus, with LG OLED's infinite contrast,

  • we're able to see every gnarly detail of the Sarlacc pit.

  • And what a way to start the series off with a bang.

  • We finally get the answer to a legendary "Star Wars" question,

  • and I'm sure we'll get more.

  • Be sure to check out "The Book of Boba Fett,"

  • now streaming on Disney+.

  • We are now so excited to be joined by Kristin Baver, host

  • of "This Week in Star Wars," to help us run

  • through even more of the coolest moments

  • from "The Book of Boba Fett."

  • Welcome to the show, Kristin.

  • Hi, Andre. Hi, Jenny.

  • Thanks for having me.

  • JENNY: Kristin, what did you think of the new series?

  • I loved it.

  • I became a huge Boba Fett fan when we saw him

  • in "The Mandalorian," and this just really

  • catapults it to the next level.

  • JENNY: Yes, and we got a lot of answers to our questions

  • that we've been holding on to for quite some time.

  • So let's dive into "The Book of Boba Fett."

  • Let's do it.

  • ANDRE: I'm not sure about y'all, but the scene where Fennec

  • Shand chases the assassin to the rooftops of Tatooine

  • had my heart racing.

  • Definitely.

  • After Boba Fett and Fennec are ambushed in the streets

  • of Tatooine, Fennec embarks on an epic chase

  • to find out who ordered the ambush,

  • and she finally catches one of the assassins.

  • Which leads us to one of the moments

  • that I found most exciting, the rancor pit reveal.

  • Boba and Fennec question the captured assassin

  • and attempt to find out who gave his orders, but no dice.

  • To get him to talk, they drop him into the rancor pit,

  • which scares him into confessing that it

  • was the mayor who sent him.

  • What the assassin doesn't know is that there's

  • no rancor after all.

  • Talk about mind games.

  • Next up, we have the introduction of the twin Hutts.

  • You might remember that Boba Fett is sitting

  • on Jabba the Hutt's throne,

  • so of course, his cousins show up to stake the claim.

  • See, this is why they want you to arrive on a litter

  • in the "Star Wars" universe.

  • It looks so regal.

  • And bonus moment, we get a quick peek at Krrsantan.

  • This had my heart pounding.

  • It's the hover train heist.

  • ANDRE: Talk about action-packed.

  • After being attacked from the hover train,

  • Boba Fett, with the help of the Tusken Raiders,

  • executes an epic plan to stop the train in its tracks.

  • KRISTIN: I love seeing these moments, because Boba Fett is

  • not only gaining the trust of the Tusken Raiders,

  • but also learning new skills himself.

  • And then we get a truly epic fight

  • between Boba and Krrsantan.

  • ANDRE: Boy oh boy, can Krrsantan fight.

  • The towering Wookiee is a truly fearsome opponent,

  • and Boba Fett is almost bested.

  • Luckily, Fennec's quick thinking lands

  • Krrsantan in the rancor pit.

  • But don't count this former gladiator out yet-- later

  • in the episode, Boba lets Krrsantan go free

  • after the Hutt twins apologize.

  • Next, we get an epic sequence where Boba steals

  • a ship back from Jabba's palace in hopes

  • of retrieving his armor.

  • KRISTIN: After dealing with some unruly kitchen

  • droids and a whole lot of guards,

  • Boba and Fennec worked together to commandeer the iconic ship.

  • ANDRE: Chapter 5 takes us on a different journey as viewers

  • get to follow the escapades of none other than Din Djarin

  • himself, the Mandalorian.

  • KRISTIN: Mando heads back to Tatooine to see if Peli

  • Motto has a ship for him.

  • Instead of a Razor Crest, she offers

  • a classic N-1 Starfighter, but there's a catch.

  • He'll have to help fix it up, which

  • shouldn't be a pro thanks to some creative Jawas

  • and a helpful BD Droid.

  • JENNY: Which brings us to our next exhilarating moment,

  • Mando testing out his newly tricked-out N-1.

  • Seems to me like a pretty good upgrade.

  • KRISTIN: Next up is a training montage of adorable proportions

  • as we get to see Grogu learn the ways of the Force

  • from Luke Skywalker.

  • Jedi training isn't easy for the little one, but remember,

  • size matters not.

  • ANDRE: Back at Freetown, there's a chill in the air

  • as Cobb Vanth is confronted by the one and only,

  • legendary bounty hunter Cad Bane.

  • What an intense scene.

  • KRISTIN: Just before the credits roll,

  • Grogu is faced with a choice.

  • Master Luke offers him a lightsaber,

  • which means training with the Jedi, or Mandalorian

  • chain mail, reuniting him with those he loves.

  • Only Grogu can choose his destiny.

  • What a conundrum.

  • ANDRE: In Chapter 7 of "The Book of Boba Fett,"

  • we finally get to see Boba and Mando

  • in action, teaming up to fight the Pyke

  • Syndicate in an epic battle.

  • When it seems like all hope is lost,

  • Boba Fett emerges on his pet rancor,

  • going head-to-head with his old friend Cad Bane.

  • It was a confrontation we'd been waiting to see, and oh, man,

  • was it worth it.

  • JENNY: Boba prevails, and the Daimyo

  • remains on Mos Espa with Fennec Shand and his new team

  • by his side.

  • Meanwhile, Mando and Grogu make the leap into hyperspace

  • and take off for new adventures.

  • ANDRE: Wow, so many great moments from this series.

  • Thank you so much for joining us, Kristin.
