    15 Things About "The Book Of Boba Fett"

    "As you wish." Star Wars fans are getting a Boba Fett show next year.

    If you watched Chapter 16 of The Mandalorian, you are already aware of a new Boba Fett show coming in 2021. Monday morning, the Star Wars Twitter made it official:

    The Book of Boba Fett, a new Original Series, starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen and executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez, set within the timeline of The Mandalorian, is coming to @DisneyPlus Dec. 2021.

    🚨 WARNING: THE MANDALORIAN SEASON TWO SPOILERS BELOW. 🚨

    Here’s everything we know about the show so far:

    1. The Executive Producers.

    Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are back as executive producers. I'd say they have done a fair job working on The Mandalorian, I just hope they don't get Star Wars fatigue.

    That might be why they added Robert Rodriguez to the team. He is the newest blood added into the executive producing gang, and will add his own flavor to the show to separate from The Mandalorian.

    2. The stars of the newest Star Wars show.

    Let's start with our two lead characters: Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

    In Chapter 13 of The Mandalorian, we learned Fennec was "revived" by Boba Fett and she is now in the bounty hunter's debt.

    3. It takes place in the same timeline as The Mandalorian.

    Disney+

    The show will be concurrent with the timeline of The Mandalorian.

    This leaves the door open for endless opportunities with crossovers, as well as tie-ins with the original and sequel trilogy (heck, we even have plenty of prequel references, too).

    4. Five years after his apparent death, Boba hasn't lost his touch.

    Disney+

    In his first full episode of The Mandalorian, he sent a platoon of stormtroopers running and destroyed both their transports for good measure.

    He also reminded everyone the Slave I is fit to fly and can still handle space battles.

    5. Fennec is still an elite mercenary.

    Even with her cyber-abs, Fennec has proven she is up to Boba's speed. Two very different personalities will make an interesting crime duo, but she also doesn't seem like the dream "yes man" right-hand woman. Conflict will brew between two skilled, aged killers, already adding great potential tension between the leads.

    That being said, having a sniper indebted to you must be a luxury for Boba.

    6. The Bounty Hunter and the Assassin.

    Diving in beyond the series announcement, what can an assassin and bounty hunter do in the outer rim? Control territory the same way the Hutt clan had for years.

    No more sidekick business. Boba and Fennec have the potential start of a new bounty hunting guild. Would Boba be willing to take a role like Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) in a more Godfather-like, less action-packed role?

    Not on his life (or jetpack).

    7. Boba Fett's Castle.

    In the after credits of The Mandalorian Season 2 Finale, we saw Boba take Jabba the Hutt's throne.

    Boba and Fennec take what they want and offer a very pirate-like victory pose.

    Also, Bib Fortuna had been keeping the throne lukewarm (Luke-Skywalker-Warm? No? Okay). I guess Bib Fortuna yeeted himself off the exploding Sail Barge in Return of the Jedi.

    8. Both Fennec and Boba have worked for the Hutts.

    When Din Djarin worked with rookie Toro Calican in Chapter 5 of The Mandalorian, he mentions that Fennec got her name by "killing for all the top crime syndicates, including the Hutts."

    Now that they own the dead space slug's palace, it will be interesting to see who they call up from the same underworld circles. IG-88? Bossk?

    9. Boba's face and voice will get him into trouble.

    In The Mandalorian finale, we saw the tension between the Mandalore heiress Bo Katan and Boba. She called out Boba for being a clone and not a real Mandalorian.

    We also now know Boba's father, Jango, was a foundling (just like Din Djarin). So he will not be a friendly face to any scattered Mandalorians in the Outer Rim.

    10. A story based in the sands of Tatooine.

    As far as setting, it appears Boba has been on Tatooine ever since his run-in with the Sarlacc Pit (Ha, more like "fall-in." Still no? okay).

    He knows this planet well, but it shouldn't stop him from venturing to other planets for power.

    11. It's gonna bring the violence we saw in Chapter 13.

    Disney+

    By the way, Robert Rodriguez's involvement means we can expect everything to feel like his Chapter 13-directed episode. Which means plenty of beat-down-brutality.

    Get him a bacta tank! Yeah!

    12. They are calling it an "Original Series" (NOT a "Mini Series").

    Maybe the biggest shock of this announcement is learning The Book of Boba Fett is listed as an “Original Series.” So if Season 1 rocks, we could get a bountiful number of seasons in the future.

    Speculation has already started, but the only thing that matters is that the O.G. bounty hunter is back with his own series. More Star Wars? Yes, please.
