Danny Trejo’s unnamed rancor keeper, who is warm and knowledgeable about the rancor species and its many surprising ways, informs Fett and the viewers. His explanations of the animal’s complex nature help to explain why he is the rancor trainer. “Return of the Jedi” is so aghast when Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) slays the creature.
Although Trejo is a great actor in the role of Trejo, it is hard to believe that Robert Rodriguez directed the episode. The two have been working together since Rodriguez’s 1995 movie. “Desperado” — and, as it happens, found out that they’re second cousins – Trejo has often appeared in the director’s projects (via The New Zealand Herald).
Trejo was likely to be in part because of Rodriguez’ involvement. “The Book of Boba Fett.”We now live in a wonderful world with Temuera Morrison and a baby rancor, while Danny Trejo proudly watches.
