Why did Tusken Raider save Boba Fett?


The Book of Boba Fett is the latest Disney+ series to focus on a fan-favorite bounty hunter from the Star Wars franchise , Boba Fett. Prior to appearing in his solo series, Boba made a surprise appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2, confirming that he’s back to life in a mysterious way. As a Star Wars spin-off , in this series Boba (Temuera Morrison) is accompanied by Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) who will help him to claim leadership over the underworld in Tatooine.

Series The Book of Boba Fett first episode has just aired some time ago, showing how Boba Fett was alive, after earlier in the film Return of the Jedi, Han Solo shot his jetpack and make Boba falling into the Sarlacc monster’s mouth. In a weak state, Boba is then taken as a prisoner by the Tusken Raider who indirectly saves him. Many fans are wondering why the famous “unfriendly” Tusken Raider did this? Here’s an explanation of why the Tusker Raider saved Boba Fett.

Who is the Tusken Raider?
The Star Wars universe is filled with various planets on which there are many creatures that are both unique and mysterious. And one of the most mysterious planets of all is Tatooine. The Tusken Raider or Sand People are one of the tribes that live on the barren planet Tatooine. First narrated in the film A New Hope , the Tusken Raiders are a mysterious tribe that is portrayed as a brutal enemy and unfriendly to outsiders.

In the film, Tusken Raiders is said to have almost killed the main protagonist of Star Wars, Luke Skywalker, before finally being rescued by Obi-Wan Kenobi. In another Star Wars saga, Tusken Raider is said to have kidnapped Shmi Skywalker and tortured him to death. The last time before appearing in The Book of Boba Fett series, Tuskern Raider appeared again in The Mandalorian Season 2 series , where Din Djarin teamed up with the Tusken Raider tribe to defeat the Krayt Dragon, proving that the Tatooine desert tribe is not completely brutal.

Turning Boba Fett into a Slave
When he managed to beat Sarlacc from inside his stomach, Boba Fett came out of the sand weak because of exhaustion. In the evening, a Javanese group arrived who immediately took Boba’s armor and all of his equipment, leaving him only in his underwear. Not long after that, the Tusken Raider came over to Boba who was still unconscious and without an identity. Instead of leaving him to die, the Tusker Raiders choose to take Boba back to their village as a prisoner.

In the village of Tusken Raider, Boba along with another prisoner who is a Rodian is ordered to find Hubba’s pumpkin. At this point we begin to find out how the Tusken Raider survives in the barren desert of Tatooine, namely by drinking water from Hubba’s pumpkin. The reason why the Tusken Raiders saved Boba was probably because they felt he could be told to look for more of Hubba’s pumpkins. To the Tusken Raider, even though Boba looks weak, he can still be useful for just digging in the sand and bringing them more water sources.

Based on this, it can be concluded that the simple reason why Tusken Raider seemed to save Boba was because of their own interests. Given that Tatooine is a very “hard” planet to live in, it makes sense that the Tusken Raiders would take all the “weak” people they meet in the Tatooine desert as slaves, who would specifically be ordered to find Hubba and meet the water needs of the desert tribesmen. the.

The Future of the Tusken Raider in The Book of Boba Fett

In Boba’s case, in the end he was more trusted by Tusken Raider after successfully defeating a six-legged monster and saving one of the members of the Tusken Raider tribe. Even though Boba managed to survive the mouth of the sarlacc, which is said to have digested its prey for a thousand years, he wouldn’t have been able to live in the desert of Tatooine if the Tusken Raider had not taken him. Given their history with Tusken Raider, should they return in future episodes of The Book of Boba Fett , it’s not impossible that Tusken Raider will become a valuable ally for Boba Fett’s next adventure.

That’s the explanation why Tusken Raider took Boba Fett and seemed to save his life. Although the flashback story of how Boba came back to life ended in episode 1, there are still some points in the future that might allow Tusken Raider to return in the series, considering that Boba’s main goal of becoming the new leader of the underworld will still occur around the Planet Tatooine where Tusken Raider resides. We’ll see, geeks.
