The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison recently talked about the new name for Slave I.
Boba Fett’s Slave I is one of the most recognizable starships in Star Wars, but word came out last summer that Disney was changing the name to Firespray. In a recent interview with TheWrap, Temuera Morrison revealed what Boba Fett calls it in the series:
“I think we call it the Firespray. I think I’ve mentioned it in a couple of episodes. I think Firespray. I think it is a gunship now. That’s what we’re calling it. We’re calling it Firespray gunship.”
Three episodes in and The Book of Boba Fett has yet to feature the Firespray, but we know the ship will be in the Temuera Morrison-led series at some point based on previously released TV spots. The name Slave I has never been uttered in a Star Wars film and the ship is considered a Firespray-31-class patrol and attack craft in both canon and Legends.
Here is the synopsis for the Disney Plus original Star Wars series:
The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, and Kathleen Kennedy are all executive producers on The Mandalorian spin-off with episodes directed by Rodriguez, Favreau, Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard. The series stars Temuera Morrison, Ming-Na Wen, and Jennifer Beals.
