On The Book of Boba Fett, even minor, unnamed characters get their own posters…so why would The Mandalorian be any different? After taking center stage in last week’s episode, the title character from Disney+’s flagship Star Wars series appears in the latest key art for Boba Fett’s ongoing spinoff…and he’s not the only one. The streaming service has also released new posters featuring the Armorer and Peli Motto. Check them out for yourself below.
This is the way.

The show previously teased Pedro Pascal’s return as Din Djarin at the end of Chapter Four, which memorably featured musical cues from his own series. However, no one was expecting him to basically hijack the spinoff in last week’s installment. The new episode showed him struggling to use the Darksaber after inheriting the weapon in The Mandalorian season 2. Unfortunately, the revelation about removing his helmet led his own people to cast him out of their tribe. But at least now he has a new starship to fly across the galaxy.
Emily Swallow also came back to play the Armorer for the first time since The Mandalorian’s first season finale. After their covert on Nevarro was destroyed, she and Paz Vizsla set up shop on a new Halo-esque ringworld. Luckily, she proved that she hasn’t lost her forger’s touch. She turned Mando’s beskar spear into a mysterious gift for his old pal, Grogu.
Finally, the episode boasted the return of Amy Sedaris as Peli Motto, the Mos Eisley mechanic who previously lent her expertise to fixing up the Mando’s Razor Crest. Sedaris’ comedic timing has always made her a welcome addition to the Star Wars franchise, as has her one-sided interplay with her band of pit droids. And her appearance in The Book of Boba Fett was no different. Especially with a new BD unit and stories about her romantic tryst with a Jawa in play.
The Book of Boba Fett will premiere its next episode this Wednesday, February 2 on Disney+.
