A day late and a dollar short! May the 4th be with you!
I sat down and watched Disney’s latest Gallery episode, outlining the making of The Book of Boba Fett. The hour-long episode is compelling, artistic, and thought-provoking. It showcases the depth to which Star Wars creators are going to build out the Star Wars story around the films.
The Gallery episode is, of course, 10 times better than the TV season itself.
The Book of Boba Fett is chalk-full of swings and misses. Episode 1 is great. Episode 2 is mesmerizing. The Mando-only episode world-builds like the best of them. Luke and Grogu are stunning together (though I wish Ahsoka hadn’t appeared here).
Yet somehow, the bulk of the season fell flat.
All told, these Gallery episodes are spectacular and worth your time. The work put in with Grogu and Luke is perhaps the best Gallery work yet.
