The Star Wars world was awash in happy hormones yesterday, as Bryce Dallas Howard directed a The Book of Boba Fett episode. Howard delivered by far the best episode of the series so far. Chapter 5: Return of the Mandalorian deals almost exclusively with Pedro Pascal’s hero from The Mandolarian. The episode debauchedly shows how Boba Fett and Din Djarin cross paths.
Star Wars highlight: what makes Bryce Dallas Howard’s Boba Fett episode so good?
In the nearly 50-minute running time, Howard adapts the quiet narrative tone of The Mandalorian. In stunning visuals, it sends the taciturn hero to an artificial planet, has him fight two tough fights, and delivers a declaration of love for Star Wars: Episode 1 in the final third. And all this feels wonderfully harmonious and natural. A tour de force that stands out among the last 3 years of Star Wars history.
At IMDB, Return of the Mandalorian holds an Incredible rating cut of 9.5 stars out of 10 possible. (Booth 11.11 p.m., 27. January). The second best episode manages an 8.3. This is no coincidence. In Boba Fett, Bryce Dallas Howard has directed her third Star Wars sequel overall; twice she’s worked for the universe in The Mandalorian. Chapter 12: The Heiress was among the absolute highlights of 2. Season.
Fans agree after Boba Fett: Star Wars needs this savior
If Star Wars executives should have confidence in a director, it’s her. The franchise’s still irritatingly empty and haphazard future needs confident female shapers like her. The Star Wars series seems like a junior camp anyway for new voices. Taika Waititi has already been promised a film. If fans have their way, Bryce Dallas Howard should own the entire Star Wars future.
Here are a few quick impressions from the episode and a first euphoric voiceover.
