Star Wars Releases Posters for Danny Trejo's Keeper and More Boba Fett Characters

The Book of Boba Fett is inching its way to its latter half, but there are still mysteries that have yet to be revealed. Developed by the combined efforts of The Mandalorian showrunners Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and director Robert Rodriguez, the show features Temuera Morrison's titular bounty hunter and newfound partner, Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand. 

The show's first few episodes introduced a host of new characters to Star Wars fans. In its first chapter, Jennifer Beals' Garsa Fwip and David Pasquesi's Mok Shaiz made their presence felt, while the second chapter highlighted the Tusken Raiders' relationship to Boba Fett and the debut of the Hutt Twins and their gladiator, Black Krrsantan

The Book of Boba Fett's third installment is no different as it introduced even more characters from Mos Espa while also giving fans a peek at the show's overarching threat. 

Now, as the show heads into its second half, a new batch of promotional images has emerged. 

The Book of Boba Fett Highlights Danny Trejo 

Disney+ officially unveiled three new character posters for The Book of Boba Fett, highlighting more characters from the hit Star Wars series. 

Danny Trejo's Rancor Keeper shines in this new batch of Boba Fett posters from Disney:

Boba Fett's Growing List of Allies 

Boba Fett is known to have a long list of enemies, but his latest solo adventure gives a slightly different tune as he earns a whole new set of allies in the form of Danny Trejo's Rancor keeper and the Mos Espa street gang

Trejo's Star Wars debut makes sense, mainly because of Robert Rodriguez's involvement. The pair, who are cousins in real life, worked together on several films, such as Spy Kids, Desperado, and Once Upon a Time In Mexico

It remains to be seen if Trejo's appearance is a one-off. However, it's possible that the veteran actor could be featured again in upcoming episodes since there's a good chance that Fett's bond with the Rancor will be highlighted once again. 

Meanwhile, many fans have criticized the debut of Mos Espa's biker gang in Episode 3, and it was further amplified by the show's intense chase scene courtesy of the group and Mok Shaiz.

In a previous interview, Morrison addressed the biker gang's inclusion in the series, admitting that "they brought a lot of color" while also praising the fact that they were "working hard" on set:

“Some of these things are out of our control. We can’t say as performers, ‘We don’t want to work with these people, that’s not good enough’ … They brought a lot of color to it, I thought … they were great, were working hard.”

Based on the show's current narrative, it looks like fans will see more of the biker gang moving forward as they are now part of Fett's security detail in Mos Espa. Morrison's defense is understandable, and hopefully, the new kids in town will redeem themselves as the season progresses. 

So far, The Book of Boba Fett has yet to reveal big moments that connect to the larger Skywalker Saga, meaning that the remaining episodes might be poised to be must-sees in the coming weeks

The first three episodes of The Book of Boba Fett are now streaming on Disney+.
