Everything We Know About The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+
The original bounty hunter Boba Fett finally has his own Disney+ show.
The bounty hunter Boba Fett is getting his own show on Disney+ titled “The Book of Boba Fett.” Those who have watched the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian would have seen the current storyline of Pedro Pascal. Now, fans are wondering what Disney has in store for the Star Wars bounty hunter.
Temuera Morrison will be returning to play the role of Boba Fett after he made his debut in Episode II – Attack of the Clones as Jango Fett in 2002. Since Jango was a Clone Troopers template, it makes sense that the son looks identical to his father.
With that, we also have Ming-Na Wen returning as Fennec Shan. The actor appeared in The Mandalorian and voiced a younger character from Star Wars: The Bad Batch. Though, the whole process of the show’s production has been secretive. Hence, most people did not even know that Wen was shooting for The Book of Boba Fett.
Regarding this, she stated, “We don’t call the shows, the shows. The contracts are always under different names. The show is under different names.”
Based on rumours, Mando will also be making an appearance in The Book of Boba Fett. This makes complete sense because Disney has framed this series as the next chapter of The Mandalorian’s story.
Other than that, we shall also see Matt Berry appearing as 8D8, David Pasquesi playing the role of Majordomo, Carey Jones as Black Krrsantan, Jennifer Beals in the role of Garsa Fwip, Daniel Logan as the younger version of the bounty hunter, and Robert Rodriquez as Dokk Strassi.
As far as the crew of the film goes, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau will return as executive producers. The duo has already worked on The Mandalorian. With that, Robert Rodriquez also directed one The Mandalorian episode, and is now an executive producer.
What does the show revolve around?
The Book of Boba Fett is a spin-off series that takes course off The Mandalorian and features Fennec Shand and his partner Boba Fett. The post-credit scene from season 2 of The Mandalorian shows us the pair taking over the former place of Jabba the Hutt. This means that Boba Fett will get many opportunities to interact with various characters from the show, both bad and good.
In an interview, Morrison stated, “Well, we can’t say too much, but we’re going to see his past and where he’s been since The Empire Strikes Back.”
He further added, “Somebody pointed out he’s been kind of stuck in this one place, and now’s the time to actually go back in time and check out his journey and find out more about him.”
When is The Book of Boba Fett released?
The show arrived in Australia on 29th December 2021. However, episodes air weekly every Wednesday and can be streamed on Disney+ exclusively. A few months ago, Disney also released the first trailer of the show, which gives us a quick glimpse of the show.
The Book of Boba Fett
It looks like Boba Fett will face various enemies after he takes over Jabba the Hutt’s throne. The enemies include many of Jabba the Hutt’s followers. According to Fett, he wants to rule with respect. So, the show might revolve around the transition that Boba Fett makes from being a bounty hunter to an underworld leader. Other than that, Disney has also included several featurettes in the show.
Currently, the show has a rating of 91 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, which suggests that it is something. Though, if you are wondering about what you should watch after or before this show, it might help to know a little bit about Star Wars.
What should you watch before The Book of Boba Fett?
Boba Fett appears in the Attack of the Clones and then returns in The Empire Strikes Back, followed by Return of the Jedi. With that, he also comes in The Clone Wars and The Mandalorian, both of which are available on Disney+.
However, the show itself is a spin-off to The Mandalorian. The Mandalorian does not require viewers to see any previous Star Wars content. So, it is safe to assume that the only show you might want to watch before The Book of Boba Fett would be The Mandalorian.
