10 Of The Best Star Wars Easter Eggs In The Show
Written by Noah Roy

As is the case with pretty much every piece of content that Star Wars put out into the world, The Book Of Boba Fett is filled to the brim with Easter eggs and references to other aspects of the franchise for longtime fans to look out for and enjoy. Some of these are nods to deep lore for the more hardcore fans, while others can make all fans smile.

Whether it’s callbacks, quotes, or characters, The Book Of Boba Fett has all manner of Easter eggs that are great to see and hear.

Ralph McQuarrie’s Painting

Ralph McQuarrie’s impact can be felt throughout Star Wars Television, with his iconic concept art popping up repeatedly, used for actual animation designs of characters and for blink-and-you-miss-it details like this.

The painting crashed through during the slow speeder chase in Mos Espa is a McQuarrie piece, altered to remove Luke Skywalker. It is an exceptional work of concept art that once again pays homage to McQuarrie’s brilliance.

The BD Unit

Book of Boba Fett Episode 5 BD Unit Droid

When a BD unit droid popped up along with Peli Motto in The Book Of Boba Fettfans of Jedi: Fallen Order rejoiced. It is the first time the droid has popped up in live-action, and hopefully not the last.

Those who have not played the game will see it as just a cute droid, but fans of the loved video game will see a droid identical to the fantastic BD-1. While this BD droid is, of course, not BD-1, it is still great to see that make of a droid somewhere other than on the shoulder of Cal Kestis. With a BD unit appearing in this show, the upcoming sequel of the game may have its own cameos from Star Wars TV characters.

Singing “Like A Yuzzum.”

Joh Yowza -Star Wars

About the majordomo, Fennec Shand remarks to Boba Fett in ‘Chapter 3’ that he is “singing like a Yuzzum.” This, to casual fans, is just a fun Star Wars phrase to say, but it is actually a reference to Return Of The Jedi.

In the infamous musical scene in Jabba’s Palace, Joh Wowza is one of the characters singing, and he is a Yuzzum. Yuzzums are one of the many weird yet kind of wonderful alien species in the Star Wars Galaxy. It is an Easter egg that will either give fans a little laugh or harrowing memories of when they first watched Joh Wowza and Sy Snootles’ performance with the Max Rebo Band.

The Wookiee/Trandoshan Rivalry

Boba-Fett-Black-Krrsantan-Trandoshans

One of the Galaxy’s richest and most interesting rivalries is a cross-species one between the Wookiees and the Trandoshans. It is referenced multiple times throughout The Book Of Boba Fettthanks to Black Krrsantan.

It pops up in the Sanctuary when Krrsantan rips the arm from a Trandoshan (who thankfully can regrow their limbs) and when Boba gets brought a Wookiee pelt by a Trandoshan as tribute. Not all fans are aware of the two’s intense, blood-covered history with one another, which sees Trandoshans hunt Wookiees for sport, making it a bit of a deep-cut reference.

Barriss Offee’s Crest

Grogu Order 66 flashback

In The Book Of Boba Fett, audiences get another viewpoint of Order 66 through the lens of Grogu. In the scene involving 501st clones and three Jedi, there is a mysterious crest on the wall that most will not notice or think twice about.

This crest, though, is that of fallen Jedi Barriss Offee. It is present in her Jedi quarters in the Jedi Temple – as well as other doors for other rooms. It likely does not mean much, but if Offee was involved in some way in the rescue of Grogu, that would be incredibly interesting, particularly since fans do not know anything about the character past The Clone Wars.

The References To Mandalorian History

The Mandalorian Din Djarin Darksaber

Mandalorian history gets a lot of time to shine in The Book Of Boba Fett ‘Chapter 5,’ mainly through the Armorer. She makes numerous references to the history of the Mandalorians and to events and places fans have heard mentioned before.

The Night Of A Thousand Tears gets mentioned in The Mandalorian. The Armorer also says that she and others lived on Concordia, a moon of Mandalore, which fans of The Clone Wars and Rebels know to have been where exiled extremists such as Death Watch lived. The Armorer also references House Kryze, seemingly lambasting Satine’s rule over the planet. The episode set up season 3 of The Mandalorian to explore Mandalore and its history further.

Camie & Fixer

Camie and Fixer in Book of Boba Fett

When Boba Fett confronts the Nikto biker gang at Tosche Station, they are not the only people there. Two other patrons are getting terrorized by the gang, Camie and Lone, better known as Fixer.

These may just seem like two random characters who live on Tatooine and are visiting Tosche Station. In reality, they are two characters who first appeared in a deleted scene in A New Hope, they’re at Tosche Station when Luke is there talking to Wedge. Casual fans will think nothing of it, but it is a fantastic Easter egg for those who know.

“Do It.”

One of the most memed moments in Star Wars history comes when Palpatine utters the phrase “Do it” to Anakin, prompting him to behead Count Dooku. The short phrase gets uttered again in The Book Of Boba Fett’s last episode.

While riding his Rancor to take out the Scorpenek annihilator droids, Boba tells his pet, “Do it.” prompting the beast to rip the droid in half. It is a badass sequence since Boba is literally riding a Rancor through the streets of Tatooine, but this little moment is a hilarious callback.

Krrsantan’s History

Black Krrsantan’s live-action debut was well executed, not necessarily because of the overall story of the series, but because of how badass he was and how wonderfully he was brought to life with such attention to detail in his design. Fans who already knew about him also got some nods to the Wookiee’s history.

As well as the already touched on tension between Wookie’s and Trandoshans, Black Krrsantan was called a gladiator in the fighting pits by Garsa Fwip. This was true. Krrsantan went there to become a better fighter and killer, shaping him into the colossus he is at the time of the show. Not only does this add context to the character for casual viewers, but it calls back history already read through by those invested in the extended canon.

The References To Boba & Cad Bane’s History

Boba Fett Kills Cad Bane in Book of Boba Fett Finale

One of the most exhilarating parts of what was a mixed finale in terms of quality was the face-off between longtime bounty hunters Boba Fett and Cad Bane, two characters with a rich history with one another that was referenced here.

For fans who have invested a lot of time into Star Wars TV and the extended canon, they know all about the relationship between the two and how Cad trained Boba. However, many were unsure if that would get proper homage in the show. It was not explored too in-depth, but the references it did get through Boba and Bane’s conversation were a highlight of the episode and one of the best Easter eggs in the show.
