In a galaxy far, far away we have the first two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett and while there is a lot of back story and information thrown at the audience, there is definitely a lot to have for die-hard fans and casual fans alike. Not going to spoil anything, including the end of TheMandalorian either, but there more back story of how Boba Fett became Boba Fett versus where he currently resides and the responsibilities he has now. But strap yourself in for the adventure worth a bounty!
Episodes one and two feature our titular character, Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and his right hand advocate Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) as they’re continuing their saga as it ended at the end of TheMandalorian Season Two. While balancing what is happening in the current time, they explore the past and how Boba Fett came to be the world’s greatest Bounty Hunter. There is a lot for fans to indulge in within these first two episodes, while sometimes the time shifting is a little hard to follow, there are always great fight sequences and a Batman Begins-esque training montage explaining how he became who he is.
There is so much to indulge in and enjoy with these first two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett, however it will always leave the audiences wanting more as each episode ends. There is so much to unpack, without spoiling anything, and brings forth some truly deep cut characters like Black Krrsantan showing up in episode two. There is a lot to love about The Book of Boba Fett and we cannot wait to see what else comes forward in this season in the Star Wars universe.
Episodes one and two of THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT is now streaming on Disney+.

Fan Expo Canada 2015 took place in Toronto this weekend at Metro Convention Centre, drawing at least 127k to the venue as fans were given a rare opportunity to connect with their Pop Culture favourites! Now in its 21st year, the bonanza gives fans a chance at meeting their favourite Artists, Cosplayers, Actors, in addition to screenings, purchasing rare merchandise and playing new games first. Photo Ops, Autograph Signings and Panels were held throughout the weekend, allowing a generous window of opportunity to connect. Installations were on display for upcoming Films like The Little Prince, The Hunger Games: Mocking Jay Part 2, The Hateful Eight and more. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Drawing a large crowd this year were Harry Potter stars Rupert Grint, Tom Felton and The Phelps Twins. Fans also got a chance to see new faces at the Expo like Boxing legend Mike Tyson, Jenna Coleman (Dr. Who), Tyler Hoechlin (Teen Wolf), Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal), Neve Campbell (Scream), Ming-Na Wen (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Robin Lord-Taylor (Gotham), Danny Trejo (Machete), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), plus returning fan favourite Norm Reedus (The Walking Dead).
As a friendly reminder this year, signs were displayed stating “Cosplay is not consent” promoting a vibe of respect among attendees, many whom utilize Fan Expo as an opportunity to fulfill their wildest fantasies of role playing as a more extraordinary version of themselves.
Our Team, including Justin Waldman, Christine Miguel and myself sat-in on a few of the Panels! Some of the more memorable quotes to come out of Fan Expo Canada 2015:

THE PHELPS TWINS
“Normally we hear you’re a lot taller than we thought you’d be” and “You dye your hair? My life is a lie!” – the Twins on the things they hear from fans most often.
“I’ve never seen a #Bond film in my life. I had no idea what I was getting into.” – Mikkelsen on accepting his role in Casino Royale.
