Comedian and actor Patton Oswalt has confirmed a very cool Easter Egg link between the recent series Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, and the classic fan-favorite series Parks and Recreation.

Back in 2013, Oswalt appeared in a Season 5 episode of Parks and Rec titled “Article Two,” where he played a character named Garth Blundon, who filibusters by describing how he thinks the Marvel and Star Wars universes could come together now that they were both owned by Disney.

In the speech, which Oswalt improvised, Garth describes Boba Fett climbing out of the Sarlacc pit. He also talks about Thanos using the Infinity Gauntlet and explains how it could be used to make the two universes crossover.

Of course, the Infinity Gauntlet ended up being a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe when Thanos used it to turn half the universe into dust in Avengers: Infinity War in 2018.

In 2021, The Book of Boba Fett was released and featured the iconic bounty hunter escaping the Sarlacc. During a recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live (via CB), Oswalt talked about how some of his predictions came true. 

“So the scene was supposed to be [that] I announce I’m gonna do this filibuster and then they cut to Amy’s character, Leslie, just going ‘Oh dear God,’ and that would be the joke. And then the directors and the writers said, ‘Let’s not yell cut and just see how long he’ll talk.’ [Marvel] had not done Guardians of the Galaxy. When I say ‘Time Gem’ [one of the Infinity Stones], they cut to Chris Pratt. This was way before he did Guardians … Also, Amy has the funniest line in the whole thing when she says the female part’s a little underwritten, which was so exactly what those movies were.”

He then went on to confirm:

“When The Book of Boba Fett came on, Jessica Fisher Jon Favreau confirmed this for me, they cut the opening shot to match my filibuster. You can sync them up time-wise… [it] pans down from the twin suns, the hand comes out of the sand, you can match it up to my filibuster. They did that on purpose.”

That’s really cool that Oswalt was so in sync with what the MCU had planned at that point in time. And it’s fun that Favreau took note of that scene and made it even more a reality.
