How Doctor Aphra's Book Of Boba Fett arrival is set up by wookiee cameo

A recent episode of The Book Of Boba Fett has Star Wars fans speculating whether Doctor Aphra could be making a cameo in the live-action series following the arrival of wookiee bounty hunter Black Krrsantan.

A popular character from the Star Wars comics has been brought to live-action for the first time and fans are wondering whether another character may follow suit and arrive in the coming episodes. 

The Book Of Boba Fett Chapter 2: The Tribes of Tatooine brought back the wookiee bounty hunter and it may also be hinting at another comic character comeback.

How Doctor Aphra’s Book Of Boba Fett arrival is set up

Krrsantan was introduced in Marvel’s ongoing Darth Vader comic in 2015 in which he worked for Jabba The Hutt and Vader. While in the Dark Lord Of The Sith’s employ, he met criminal archaeologist Doctor Aphra and even saved her life. Aphra was also introduced during the Darth Vader comics and later starred in her own Marvel Comics series.

Darth Vader hired Black Krrsantan to find Doctor Aphra and, while he originally wanted to give her over to the Dark Lord, he later decided to save her life. The two formed a bond as the wookiee became her hero – and that’s why fans reckon she could make an appearance in The Book Of Boba Fett.

When they finished working for Vader the duo continued to work together and practically come as a pair; Krrsantan’s live-action debut certainly warrants an Aphra appearance too.

Although we can’t say for certain what will happen in the next episode of The Book Of Boba Fett, fans hope Doctor Aphra makes a cameo. If not in the Boba Fett spin-off, then hopefully we will see the beloved comic character in one of the other upcoming Star Wars shows on Disney+.

Wookiee’s cameo in The Book Of Boba Fett

Black Krssantan has quite a few appearances in Marvel’s Star Wars comics, but his live-action debut featured in The Book Of Boba Fett. Black Krrsantan showed up when The Twins used him as a source of intimidation towards Boba Fett. Between one bounty hunter and another, Fett was far from scared.
