Lucasfilm and Disney+ are gearing up for an explosive final episode of The Book of Boba Fett, the company's second live-action streaming Star Wars series. While Boba and Fennec Shand were the key focus in the first four episodes, Chapters 5 and 6 took a different route. Featuring characters from the past and present like Luke Skywalker, Ahsoka Tano, and even R2-D2, fans got an update on much more than just Tatooine's daimyo.
After a somewhat slow start, the last couple of weeks have set the Star Wars fandom ablaze with theories and ideas for what could go down in the seventh and final chapter. From Cad Bane's live-action debut to an impending war between Lord Fett's forces and the Pyke Syndicate, there's no shortage of material to tackle as the Disney+ outing comes to an end.
Due to so many major icons from Star Wars' history coming into play, the merchandising opportunities are becoming more plentiful for the ever-expansive galaxy far, far away. The Book of Boba Fett is taking the chance to climb aboard that marketing and merchandising train with one last story to tell for the iconic former bounty hunter.
New Boba Fett Merch Shows Key Star Wars Players
Amazon released listings for officially-licensed merchandise with promotional art featuring characters from The Book of Boba Fett.
In front of a dark background, one design features Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker and Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano standing tall behind the classic droid R2-D2:
Grogu's Jedi training with Luke Skywalker is featured in a design with six panels paying tribute to moments from "Chapter 6 - From the Desert Comes a Stranger." Everything from Grogu on Luke's back to the young Jedi's choice between picking Yoda's lightsaber and the Mandalorian's beskar chain mail is featured in the panel collage:
Three sets of eyes are featured in a design paying tribute to a showdown in "Chapter 6" with a red hue. The eyes belong to Timothy Olyphant's Cobb Vanth, J.J. Danshaw's Deputy Scott, and Corey Burton's Cad Bane:
Cad Bane is featured in another design on his own with his name in red and blue lettering. One image displays his menacing face, while the other features a full body shot for the new antagonist:

Boba Fett's Ensemble Cast Coming to Light
With nearly a dozen characters being featured on these new merchandise items, fans get a sense of just how big The Book of Boba Fett is truly becoming within the Star Wars narrative.
This seven-chapter series is bringing together plot lines from close to 40 years of other journeys under Lucasfilm's umbrella, including everything from Return of the Jedi to The Mandalorian. Now, Disney is taking advantage of the moment by giving fans various options for merchandise to celebrate a slew of major players that have seen significant screen time in the first six chapters.
Now, with all these heroes and villains potentially set to contribute to "Chapter 7", the big question will be how they all come together to bring Boba Fett's solo series to a culmination. While Luke, Ahsoka, and R2-D2 are all currently outside Tatooine's realm, there are more than enough plot lines to explore in the upcoming Fett vs. Pyke battle in the near future.
The final chapter of The Book of Boba Fett will premiere on Disney+ on Wednesday, February 9.
