‘The Mandalorian’: director explains how he created the battle between Boba Fett and the Stormtroopers

The return of Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) to the universe of “Star Wars” was one of the most remarkable moments of the 2nd season of “The Mandalorian”.

In the 6th episode of the attraction, the Bounty Hunter shows why he is one of the most dangerous gunmen in the galaxy when he joins Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) in preventing the Imperial forces from capturing little Grogu.

During a preview of the new episodes of the documentary “Disney Galleries: The Mandalorian,” director Robert Rodriguez explained that he had planned the action scene.

“I planned everything in my mind, fantasized about my children, and used dolls to replicate what I saw on storyboards. I got called in for this last minute job so I thought fast and managed to turn a three page battle scene into an intense 9 minute video shoot because I was so excited to bring back Boba Fett.

Previously, Rodriguez had revealed to Collider his reaction to reading the script and said that he had fulfilled a childhood dream by participating in the saga.

Enjoy watching:

“When I was about 12, ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back’ came out and I’ve always been a fan of Boba Fett. When I saw this mysterious figure, I knew I had to find out what was behind this armor. Since then it was a childhood dream to participate in the saga and now I was able to do it.

He continued:

“When I was invited to direct ‘O Mandaloriano’ and saw that the script had ‘Boba Fett’, I was like, ‘This doesn’t sound like an official script, it looks like a fan has wrote this in the hope that his dream would come true ‘. But Dave [Filoni] and Jon [Favreau] made me believe that dreams can be realized.

Finally, he said he felt happy to bring Fett back in one of the best episodes of the entire series so far.

“I couldn’t believe I was going to make an episode so full of emotions and surprises. Working with characters like Gideon, Grogu, and Mando himself was surreal. And this Black Saber? This script had the best things I could hope for and it exceeded my expectations. I can say that my 12 year old is proud of me. “

Recently, the filmmaker shared on Twitter a nice video showing Grogu dancing while he plays a melody on the guitar.

In the same episode, the little alien is kidnapped after communicating with Luke Skywalker in the ruins of Tython’s Jedi Temple.

In the video, Grogu dances above the Mystic Stone where he connected with the Jedi Master.
