Were you paying attention during The Book of Boba Fett episode 6? Hidden among the surprise cameos and serious CGI improvements was a subtle, sweet Easter egg paying homage to everyone’s (second) favorite little green guy in a galaxy far, far away.
Spoilers for The Book of Boba Fett follow. If you haven’t seen the episode, look away now.
During Luke Skywalker and Grogu’s walk through the forest – complete with the Jedi Master giving Baby Yoda a little Force push to help him keep up – a short segment of John Williams’ “Yoda’s Theme” can be heard. Take a listen.

This particular version is a re-configured score by Ludwig Göransson, but still hits the nostalgia spot. Excerpts of Yoda’s Theme have also been used across all three main trilogies, last heard in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Grogu, meanwhile, has his own path to walk down. The most recent episode saw Luke offer him a choice between staying and learning the way of the Jedi or returning back to Din Djarin.
From its low-key starting point, The Book of Boba Fett has suddenly become a celebration of all things Star Wars. The Mandalorian’s return was a definitive nod to the franchise’s future, while the prequels got a shoutout in the form an N1 Starfighter. Even the video games have been squeezed in, with scrapped title 1313 and Jedi Fallen: Order all finding their way into the Disney Plus spin-off in some capacity.
