Having appeared briefly in the original trilogy, the prequels, and The Mandalorian, he quickly won hearts and adoration worldwide for his no-nonsense attitude and swagger. As the episodes of The Book of Boba Fett stream on Disney+ Hotstar, Director & Executive Producer- Robert Rodriguez shares his experience of directing an episode of Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett.
On being able to establish the style and tone for the entire show, Director & Executive Producer- Robert Rodriguez said “I wanted the level of action to live up to the promise of Boba Fett from last season, but I also needed to establish how he’d conduct business in the palace, and how Fennec and he would interact in there.”
Fennec Shand, played by Ming-Na Wen, is a relatively lesser-known character in the Star Wars universe. While talking about how Wen fit effortlessly into the series he said, “I thought it would be fun if she was always giving him guidance and asides by leaning over and giving her point of view.”
