The new Star Wars series “The Book of Boba Fett” will be broadcast on Disney + from December 29th. Here’s everything we know about the new adventures of the iconic bounty hunter!
If you’ve seen both seasons of The Mandalorian series, then you’re well aware that Boba Fett, the bounty hunter left for dead in Return of the Jedi, ultimately survived his fall into the Sarlacc’s Maw on Tatooine.
Reintroduced during an episode that saw him ally with the Mandalorian Din Djarin (and his loyal Grogu), Boba Fett then traveled to the planet of two suns to take the head of the crime syndicate then occupied by Bib Fortuna, the former servant of Jabba the Hutt. By his side, the lawless mercenary Fennec Shand (also appeared in the animated series The Bad Batch).
During the finale of the second season of The Mandalorian, a short teaser announced the broadcast at the end of 2021 of a spin-off devoted to the bounty hunter. And it is indeed from December 29 that the already eagerly awaited series The Book of Boba Fett will be broadcast on Disney +.
Lots of secrets
Shot in the deepest of secrets, the series will bring together Temuera Morrison (the interpreter of Jango Fett in the prelogy, of which Boba is the clone) and Ming-Na Wen in the role of Fennec Shand. The rest of the cast remains under wraps, with the exception of Jennifer Beals (The L World), whose presence has been confirmed in the series’ first trailer.
Behind the scenes, the series was conceived by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, a duo already at work on The Mandalorian. Author of the episode that reintroduced him to the series Star wars, Robert Rodriguez is back on The Book of Boba Fett for an inderteminated number of episodes. Also director of an episode of The Mandalorian, Bryce Dallas Howard also helped design the spin-off on Boba Fett.
The timeline of the series tells us that its action will take place between the story of the original trilogy (Episode VI: Return of the Jedi) and that of postlogy (Episode VII: The Awakening of the Force). Flashbacks are nevertheless not to be excluded, for example to illustrate the exit of Boba from the belly of the Sarlaac, as well as his years of exile on Tatooine before his path crosses that of Fennec Shand.
Series The Book of Boba Fett can be discovered exclusively on Disney + from December 29.
