A large part of the initial chapters of “The Book of Boba Fett” concentrates on the title character’s travails after he fell into the Sarlacc Pit in the 1983 “Star Wars” film “Return of the Jedi.” Recounted in flashback dream sequences while Boba is healing in a Bacta tank, the scenes show how the bounty hunter escaped the Sarlacc creature, only to be captured by a band of Tusken Raiders. First a prisoner, Boba proves his worth to the Tuskens by slaying a massive sand monster, earning a reprieve and rare opportunity to be trained by them. Later, Boba aids the Tuskens by devising a plan to derail a train of bandits who are threatening them. Part of that plan, however, is to teach the Tuskens how to drive speeder bikes, but the communication barrier between him and his new allies tests his patience.
“I feel like he did get quite annoyed when we were doing this scene where he brings in the speeders and he’s trying to talk to us and saying, ‘These speeders, they’re for us.’ We’re not paying him any mind, we’re just throwing the pieces of this speeder away and thinking, ‘Oh, we need to take these parts and scavenge them,'” Ross recalled for Looper in an exclusive interview. “There were a few takes where he’s still talking to us and we’re waiting for the chief to give us the signal, and we’re literally just throwing things away and he was like, ‘Stop! Stop!’ I think after a while he was like, ‘Okay, how long we going to let them go?’ [It was a] ‘Let’s move on’ sort of thing.”
