Mos Eisley Cantina shook warm paranormal fuzzies with Boba Fett!

this could all just be a misdirection. “The Gunslinger” could have been filled, top to bottom, with original trilogy references so that our minds would immediately go to Boba at the end.

Then again, THR noticed that the #BobaFett hashtag on Twitter produces a little Boba helmet graphic. So it’s already a branded hashtag. But, as we noticed the last time we thought Boba Fett had shown up in the series, showrunner Jon Favreau has specifically said Boba Fett won’t appear in The Mandalorian. “Boba Fett is not, they’re all new original characters,” Favreau told Good Morning America. “There’s a thirty-year stretch of story time that hasn’t been explored at all except in the extended universe.”

More likely, the cape and boots belonged to Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon, a former Imperial officer who we have yet to meet in The Mandalorian, despite being heavily featured in the show’s trailers. Check out our interview below for Esposito’s explanation of how the defeated Empire fits into the world of The Mandalorian.

We’re halfway through the first season of The Mandalorian, and the series just delivered what is probably its most fan-servicey episode to date. Chapter 5, “The Gunslinger,” finds Mando landing on the oh-so-familiar desert planet of Tatooine to get his ship serviced, then heading over to the Mos Eisley Cantina to look for work. That’s, like, a straight flush of Star Wars references, instantly recognizable to anyone who has ever even heard of A New Hope — all it’s missing is a drive-by of Uncle Owen’s old moisture farm ruins. Mando could have landed on any planet and walked into any bar and the plot would have worked out the same. Using Tatooine just allowed the series to coast on our recognition so it could cut to the chase (literally, in this case) while guaranteeing we got a solid dose of warm fuzzies along the way.
