Dave Filoni loves dropping references to the wider Star Wars universe. Just this week, we got a fun nod to video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, as well as the Mandalorian storyline building on what was established in Rebels. But there was also an incredibly obscure reference to A New Hope in this week’s The Book of Boba Fett, one that will likely be missed by 99.9% of viewers.

A large part of this episode saw guest star Din Djarin revisiting Peli Motto’s workshop on Tatooine, where the pair fixed up an ancient Naboo starfighter as his new ride. In a testament to the skills of the two stars, they made simply asking for all manner of bizarre space engine parts very entertaining. During this sequence, Motto revealed she buys her parts from Jawas (she’s even dated one!), with Din asking that they get him a “cryogenic density combustion booster”.

The Jawas deliver, with the part apparently giving Din’s new ship a major speed boost. But truly eagle-eyed Star Wars fans may find the long cylindrical booster strangely familiar…
