Disney said The Book of Boba Fett would premiere this December, and it’s making good on its promise — if only just. The media giant has revealed that the Mandalorian spin-off will debut December 29th on Disney+. The art accompanying the release date doesn’t show much, but you can assume Boba Fett won’t suffer fools lightly. (Caution: mild Mandalorian spoliers ahead.)
The series follows Boba Fett and his mercenary ally Fennec Shand shortly after the end of Mandalorian season two, as the pair return to Tatooine and lay claim to Jabba the Hutt’s former territory. Temeura Morrison and Ming-Na Wen will reprise their respective roles. Producers from the earlier show are helming this latest project, including Jon Favreau, Robert Rodriguez and Kathleen Kennedy.
This won’t satisfy fans looking for Mandalorian season three, which will only arrive after Boba Fett. It does give fans another Star Wars fix before the end of 2021, at least, and it ensures you’ll have another major Disney+ show to watch once you’ve finished with Hawkeye.
