The Book of Boba Fett: why is Boba wearing a tunic?

The Book of Boba Fett

In The Book of Boba Fett strangely, the Mandalorian clone seems to prefer clothing that is not in line with its more traditional look. At the time of his film debut in The Empire Strikes Back, the lethal bounty hunter sported a full Mandalorian armor, but already with his new appearance in The Mandalorian, it was noticed that only the breastplate, helmet and bracelets are appeared again, while a previously unseen black tunic appeared.

A choice that during the presence of Boba Fett in The Mandalorian was not understandable, but which was answered thanks to The Book of Boba Fett. In addition to being a potential excuse to give life to other action figures dedicated to the Mandalorian clone, this clothing has a reason that is explained in the first two episodes of the series, Stranger in a foreign land and The tribes of Tatooine.

The Book of Boba Fett: the origin of Boba Fett's tunic

Once he survived the Sarlacc, in fact, Boba Fett he is initially found by the Jawas, Tatooine's little scrap hunters, who leave him dying after stripping him of his precious armor. Having passed some time from this theft to the discovery of the armor, which also passed through the hands of Sheriff Cobb Vanth, it is understandable that Boba Fett was unable to completely reassemble his armor.

During his time with these tusken, Boba was welcomed as one of the clan, taught desert survival, and learned their customs, as well as learning their fighting techniques.

The Black Robe it was given to him as a sign of belonging to the tribe, a gift that Boba Fett now wears to honor this relationship, reiterating that he still feels part of the Tusken people. An interesting choice, if we think that in The Mandalorian Boba had reiterated how he did not feel part of the Mandalorian people, during a heated confrontation with Bo-Katan Kryze and his companions, while it seems that in the sands of Tatooine the bounty hunter has finally found your own people.

'The Book of Boba Fett' Hid a Deep Cut 'Star Wars' Easter Egg You May Have Missed

As we flick through The Book of Boba Fett's pages, the latest entry to the galaxy far, far away, is already proving to be another integral part of that world of Wookiees and Wampas. Only two episodes in we've already seen Expanded Universe storylines like Boba's escape from the Sarlacc and the furry/ferocious Black Krrsantan getting retconned back into mainline canon.

Now, there's a forgotten part of George Lucas' original trilogy that's found a new place to call home. It turns out sympathetic Tusken Raiders aren't the only reprieve 1977's A New Hope has been given, as January 5's 'The Tribes of Tatooine' visited a familiar locale with some familiar faces for a deep cut that's been some 45 years in the making.

Further leaning into the Western vibes established in Jon Favreau's The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett saw our titular bounty hunter strolled into a seedy bar to deliver some vigilante justice. While Boba made light work of the reptilian Nikto miners, you might remember there was a scared couple that looked on in horror. They simply wanted to enjoy a quiet drink at Tosche Station. Hmm, where have we heard that name before?

Heading back to A New Hope, there was plenty that ended up on the cutting room floor. In particular, we were supposed to learn more about Luke's life on Tatooine. More than just a robot-loving outcast living with Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru, Luke had a whole life and a group of friends.

As for Tosche Station, there was his famous moan of 'going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters.' Although Luke never got those power converters, the grungy power station/dive bar on the outskirts of Arrowhead has appeared several times over the years.

In 'The Tribes of Tatooine', actors Mandy Kowalski and Skyler Bible are credited as Camie Marstrap and Fixer Loneozner.

The characters first appeared in the comics in 1977, and although the roles aren't played by the original actors cut from A New Hope (Koo Stark and Anthony Forrest), some spotted they were Camie and Fixer before we got to the credits. In particular, the inclusion of Camie is a major nod to Luke's past, with the future Jedi having a crush on her.

As the Nikto thugs caused a ruckus at the bar, a feeble Fixer mumbled, 'It's not right,' but we imagine Luke Skywalker would have had something more to say.

Lucas' original shooting script for A New Hope included the opening battle between Darth Vader's Devastator Star Destroyer and the Tantive IV being watched by Luke and friends from the surface of Tatooine. It was later decided the action should focus on R2-D2 and C-3PO.

These days, Biggs, Camie and Fixer's introduction has become the stuff of legend. There was also an expanded role for Biggs Darklighter, who in very early drafts was Luke's younger brother. Although actor Garrick Hagon appeared briefly in the final cut of A New Hope, additional scenes of Biggs preparing for the Battle of Yavin were added back in for the special editions.

Despite Camie seeming like she's been lost to the ages, she was recently referenced in Star Wars' novelization of 2017's The Last Jedi. It was here that Luke dreamed about an alternate life where he married Camie and never left Tatooine.

As another fun factoid, it was Camie that gave Luke his unkind nickname of 'wormie.' When it comes to Luke's potential love interests, she's possibly one of the most famous characters not to be made canon (until now). With this in mind, there's a sense of irony that Boba Fett sauntered into the bar and simply disregarded Camie and Fixer as a pair of nobodies.

Now that Camie and Fixer are canon in the ever-expanding galaxy, will The Book of Boba Fett go the whole hog and include Biggs in a future episode? Even though it's not quite on a par with Luke Skywalker popping by at the end of The Mandalorian, the episode's A New Hope deep cut proves this is yet another series that delivers fan service and action in equal measure. Still, we doubt Boba would've been so kind to Camie if he'd known she's the childhood crush of the guy that was partially responsible for his digestion by the Sarlacc.
