“The Book of Boba Fett” had a major callback to a deleted scene from “A New Hope” that might be one of the deepest deep cut callbacks in “Star Wars” history.

The second episode of “The Book of Boba Fett” showed us a brief flashback of Boba Fett’s time with the Tusken Raiders, who work to take down the Pyke Syndicate’s hovertrain on Tatooine.

During the episode, Boba Fett stops at a small train station — Tosche Station.

Does Tosche Station sound familiar? It should. It’s the iconic location from Luke Skywalker’s whiny line — “But I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!” — from “A New Hope.”

  • The station has never been featured in “Star Wars” television or movies before. It has been mentioned in books, though.

Let’s take it one step further. George Lucas filmed a scene from Tosche Station for “A New Hope” that was ultimately cut. The scene included characters such as Biggs Darklighter, Laze Loneozner, and Camie Marstrap.

  • In “The Book of Boba Fett” scene, we see Laze and Camie (played by new actors of course) at Tosche Station again, this time being harassed by the Nikto bikers, according to Den of Geek.
  • Both of these characters were only seen in a deleted scene from 1977.

This is just another example of “The Book of Boba Fett” blending the past and the future together, giving us new stories with old characters and showing us that no one in “Star Wars” is truly ever gone.
