After an episode full of shock and awe, the ultimate finale at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2 was the long-awaited confirmation of a Boba Fett spinoff show. The announcement came in the end-credit scene attached to the end of The Mandalorian season finale.
The scene featured Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and Boba Fett (Tamaura Morrison) breaking into Jabba the Huts palace on Tatooine (last seen in Return of the Jedi). The duo takes out Bib Fortuna, Jabba’s old right-hand man, and assume Jabba’s old throne. The screen cuts to black and reveals “The Book of Boba Fett Coming December 2021.”
This spinoff show has been rumored for a while, with many reports coming out that the show was filming long before the announcement. The Book of Boba Fett was noticeable absent from Disney’s Investor Day presentation, but this explains why.
Rumors differ as to whether The Book of Boba Fett will be its own show or take the place of The Mandalorian Season 3. Both shows were given a December 2021 release date, and it’s entirely possible for Boba Fett to take over as the titular Mandalorian at least for one season.
The Book of Boba Fett joins Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka in The Mandalorian timeline of the Star Wars universe. Lucasfilm as confirmed that all of the spinoff shows will culminate in an epic crossover event with no set release date.
UPDATE: Disney announced Monday morning that The Book of Boba Fett will be a brand new series coming to Disney+ December 2021. The series will be spearheaded by Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau, and Robert Rodriguez. The show will star Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen and is set in the timeline of The Mandalorian.
Not only are they back to our screens at home but they are once again lighting up the big screen at the theater nearest you.
Hawkeye seems to be striking the perfect balance between Christmas magic and the grounded MCU development necessary for an original Avenger.
It turns out even Disney cannot quite figure out the formula to solve the industry’s massive problem with streaming services.
