It’s the most feared name in the seedy underworld of the Star Wars Universe. Boba Fett. This December, the infamous bounty hunter makes the jump from the Mandalorian to his own spin-off series, The Book of Boba.
The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, 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 series takes place alongside the other The Mandalorian spin-off Ahsoka.
Temuera Morrison stars as Boba Fett, with Ming-Na Wen also starring as Fennec Shand. Both reprise their roles from The Mandalorian and other previous Star Wars media. Several attempts were made at developing a standalone Star Wars film centered on Boba Fett before Lucasfilm began prioritizing its streaming series such as The Mandalorian. Morrison appeared as Fett alongside Wen in the second season of The Mandalorian, and a potential spin-off series was first reported in November 2020. The Book of Boba Fett was officially announced in December 2020, with Morrison and Wen starring. Filming had begun by that point, and lasted until June 2021.
The series is set to premiere on December 29, 2021.
