The Book of Boba Fett™ – Tusken Raiders™
Boba Fett was found in the desert of Tatooine after he escaped from the hungry maw of the Sarlacc pit and was taken prisoner by the Tusken Raider tribe. He worked hard to earn their trust, friendship, and loyalty, and over time, he became a member of their tribe. Boba Fett was taught to battle using a Gaderffii stick by a Tusken warrior, and in return, he taught them the fighting tactics he had learned during his time as a bounty hunter. The Book of Boba Fett™ – Tusken Raiders™ captures the bond forged between Boba Fett and his newfound family, highlighting some of the important moments that defined their relationship and set the course for Boba’s future.
