The first episode of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ pays a nice tribute to ‘Star Wars: Attack of the Clones’, the film which featured the children’s version of the character from the saga.
At the start of the episode, we see Boba (Temuera Morrison) recovering from injuries caused by a bacta tank, while recalling some defining moments in his life.
One of those moments is when he takes the helmet of his father, Jango, who was beheaded by Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) during the Battle of Geonosis.
Turns out some fans noticed the scene was a bit longer than the original.
This is because Lucasfilm reused deleted scenes from “Episode II” and also recorded new scenes using a stuntman similar to Daniel Logan, who brought Boba to life in the film.
The information was confirmed by the actor himself on his Twitter profile.
Check it out, as well as the scene from the “Book of Boba Fett”:
