The series was originally confirmed back in December 2020 as an original spin-off of the popular Mandalorian series, which began airing in November of 2019. Executive producer Jon Favreau confirmed The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett will not be airing at the same time, but not provide a hard release date for the latter series. More news is expected in time, but early 2022 seems to be the most accurate assessment as of now.
The series will follow Boba Fett in the aftermath of the post-credits scene of the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, in which he had returned to Jabba the Hutt’s palace in Tatooine and killed Bib Fortuna, thus taking over Jabba’s old position in the criminal underworld. The trailer for the series seems to showcase that it will focus on providing a more in-depth look at the criminal underbelly of the Star Wars universe.
This is something that has been explored previously in animated shows like Star Wars: The Clone Wars but had only been briefly touched upon in live-action films and television shows. The character of Boba Fett will be trying to stake his claim as a powerful leader in the criminal underworld, who has a different agenda than his old employer.
This new The Book of Boba Fett trailer provides a brief glimpse of that world and teases viewers to “Witness the return of a legend.”
The Book of Boba Fett series will star Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, an elite mercenary and assassin in Fett’s service. As stated previously, it will be executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez, who had also previously directed Boba Fett’s return in The Mandalorian Season 2 episode 6.
