Disney has released the first look trailer for The Book of Boba Fett, which sees the former bounty hunter hang up his spurs for a more ambitious adventure, taking over Jabba’s criminal syndicate. A rather large feat given all the criminal scum of the Star Wars underworld looking to bump him off and take his position.
While Solo: A Star Wars Story waded in the waters of the underworld, it looks like The Book of Boba Fett will explore the real criminal side of things giving us more insight into that side of the mythology. This sort of confirms that Fett is no longer a bounty hunter and might open things up to see what the other syndicates look like beyond Tatooine.
Its directing team is expected to include Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Bryce Dallas-Howard, and Sam Hargrave.
The new series will debut on December 29 on Disney+ and will continue into 2022.
Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and season three of The Mandalorian are other Star Wars shows that expected to be released next year, giving fans a heap of content ahead of the next film, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron being released in 20223.
“The Book of Boba Fett,” a thrilling Star Wars adventure teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian,” 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.
“The Book of Boba Fett” stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.
