WARNING: The next incorporates spoilers for Star Wars: Visions Episode 2, “Tatooine Rhapsody,” streaming now on Disney+.
One of the vital intriguing prospects of Star Wars: Visions was that we would not simply get to see new characters, however traditional ones interacting with them, like Jabba and Boba Fett. It added a layer of canon to the collection, which continues to be admittedly out of continuity for now. Nonetheless, on this similar episode, “Tatooine Rhapsody,” we uncover there’s somebody related to Jabba the Hutt, however it seems this rock-loving, emo member of his clan does not wish to comply with his evil empire.
At first, it is a bit bizarre to search out child Boba coming to a seedy bar to apprehend Jay and Co. who play in Star Waver. Nonetheless, he shortly makes it clear within the brawl that Geezer, the bassist Hutt, means rather a lot to him as there’s an enormous bounty out.
It seems that Geezer refused to hitch Jabba’s syndicate and from Boba’s phrases, the boss is pissed. It is by no means confirmed if Geezer is blood-related or not, however one factor’s for positive — Jabba considers him a part of the household and desires him within the mafia.
Sadly, the flame-throwing Geezer and the remainder of the band cannot cease Boba from kidnapping Geezer, making it clear he will be executed in Jabba’s area. Jay, although, cannot let this occur as a result of Geezer’s greater than a buddy to him. He tears up because the staff appears resigned to shedding their buddy, making it clear how invaluable Geezer is. There’s even a nostalgic second with Jay enjoying a recording of their first gig and Geezer adamant they’d succeed within the galaxy.
This religion, perception and brotherhood conjures up Jay because it seems he is a Padawan who fled Order 66 and is now left with a damaged lightsaber. The boisterous Geezer took him in, nevertheless, giving him that sense of value and household, providing hope in a darkish, damaged cosmos.
It results in them turning themselves in to Jabba, eager to play one final present for the group with Geezer. Jay’s adamant they will rock the socks off the place so he can exit in a blaze of glory, which results in a jam followers of Paramore, My Chemical Romance and the pop-punk/emo style would get pleasure from.
On condition that Geezer has that full-haired emo coiffure too, nicely, it is even sweeter as his rumbling bass and galloping thumps even encourage Boba and Bib Fortuna to bob alongside. Fortunately, Jabba opts to not execute Geezer and seemingly endorses the band, turning into a sponsor as they play an encore. It leaves us curious how profitable they ended up being and if Geezer did certainly mend bridges with the don after initially spurning that enterprise supply Hutts often cannot refuse.
To see Geezer resist the Hutt trigger and rock out, Star Wars: Visions is out there to stream now on Disney+.
