WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD FOR THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT CHAPTER 2. This week’s episode of The Mandalorian spin-off titled The Tribes of Tatooine featured some fantastic nods for Star Wars fans. The Rancor pit in Jabba’s palace may have been empty since Luke Skywalker killed the beast in Return of the Jedi, but there were some other great cameos.

During a flashback to Tatooine, Boba Fett approached what looked like the Tosche Station where Luke was going to pick up some power converters in the original trilogy.

Inside having a drink among outlaws are two familiar humans in Camie Marstrap and Laze “Fixer” Loneozner.

Star Wars fans will know this couple as childhood friends of Luke who featured in a deleted scene of A New Hope.

The rare clip cut from the original Star Wars movie takes place inside Tosche Station, where he meets his friends ace pilot Biggs Darklighter, Camie and Fixer.

The deleted scene had been shot to help humanise Luke earlier on in the movie, but was cut along with subsequent ones with the group in Anchorhead due to slowing down the movie’s pace.

But now at least Camie and Fixer can live on in canon here in The Book of Boba Fett and who’s to say they won’t turn up again in some form?

The couple was played by Mandy Kowalski and Skyler Bible, following on from A New Hope’s Koo Stark and Anthony Forrest.

Aside from Camie and Fixer, The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 2 also saw the return of a fan favourite Wookiee.

After paying a visit to the Mayor, played by Chapter 1 director Robert Rodriguez, Boba Fett was threatened by the twin cousins of Jabba the Hutt, who believe his throne should now be theirs.

The gangster family were accompanied by a Wookiee bounty hunter and gladiator who turns out to be Black Krrsantan.

Known for featuring in the Darth Vader comics, he was hired by Jabba and even the Sith Lord himself at one point.

The Wookiee now seems to be in the employ of the Hutt twins and we wouldn’t be surprised if he clashes with Boba in a future episode.

Aside from The Book of Boba Fett, there are more Star Wars Disney+ shows on the way.

This year will see the release of Obi-Wan Kenobi, featuring the return of Ewan McGregor’s Jedi Master and Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader, following the events of Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Then there’s Andor, which serves as a prequel to Rogue One and covers the adventures of Diego Luna’s rebel spy Cassian Andor. Additionally, Ahsoka and Lando are getting spin-offs too.

The Book of Boba Fett is streaming now on Disney+.
