The Book of Boba Fett is currently giving fans a brand-new chapter for Temuera Morrison's titular bounty hunter. The latest Star Wars series picks up right after the events of The Mandalorian Season 2, following the story of Fett's takeover of Mos Espa as its new daimyo or crime lord. In addition, the series is also taking a deep dive into Fett's survival from the Sarlacc Pit and his new dynamic with the Tusken Raiders.
The Book of Boba Fett's first two episodes are filled with interesting Easter eggs and a compelling narrative. While some fans have criticized that the series is lackluster due to its slow pacing, Morrison promised in a previous interview that more "colorful" villains are on the way, likely hinting that surprise appearances are in the cards.
The show's second episode introduced two new characters into the fold, namely Black Krrsantan and the Hutt Clan Twins. Black Krrsantan serves as the muscle and enforcer of the Hutt Clan Twins, with Fett describing him as a "gladiator." Meanwhile, the main goal of the Hutt Twins appears to be hellbent on taking Mos Espa from Fett.
Now, as the show's third chapter inches closer, a special look at The Book of Boba Fett's new characters has arrived.

An Imminent Clash in Tatooine
This new batch of The Book of Boba Fett posters offers a preview of the looming duel between Fett and the Hutt Twins and hints that the bounty hunter's past with the Tusken Raiders will be further explored in the upcoming chapters.
Fett's bond with the Tusken Raiders has been taking a good chunk of the show's narrative so far. This could hint that Tatooine's sand people will play a pivotal role in the show's second half, likely helping Fett with his ordeal against Black Krrsantan and the Hutt Twins.
At this stage, Fett and Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand seem to have no close allies in Mos Espa so far. It's possible that the Tusken Raiders are Fett's secret weapon, and he is just biding his time to unleash them against his looming enemies.
Even though Black Krrsantan had a brief appearance in Episode 2, it's reasonable to assume that the Wookie will play a major role moving forward. That said, many would agree that a duel between Black Krssantan and Fett would be a visual treat.
The pair has a shared history since they worked for Darth Vader. There's a chance that their previous employer will be brought up in dialogue as well, thus serving as a significant Easter egg for dedicated fans.
Meanwhile, Shand told Fett during Episode 2 that he would need "permission" to kill the Hutt Twins since they have a well-established power and connection within the galaxy far, far, away. Asking permission in the galaxy's criminal underworld is not an easy feat, meaning that Fett needs to go deeper in order to achieve his goal.
This could ultimately lead to a fateful encounter with Emilia Clarke's Lady Qi'ra of Crimson Dawn. It is unknown if Qi'ra will be pleased with Fett's arrival, but stranger things have happened in the Star Wars franchise that could make them allies at first then enemies down the line.
All in all, The Book of Boba Fett seems poised to uncover more surprises, and it will be interesting to find out how Fett will preserve his position as Daimyo of Mos Espa as the season unfolds.
The first two episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are now streaming on Disney+.
