The Book of Boba Fett debuts December 29th
Lucasfilm says The Book of Boba Fett “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.”
We know that the series will pick up shortly after The Mandalorian season 2’s ending. Jabba the Hutt’s throne is vacant, and Boba Fett plans to take his place. As Fett says in the trailer, he plans to rule with respect instead of fear, as Jabba did. Of course, staying on Jabba’s throne is going to be a challenge, as evidenced by the sheer number of humans and aliens trying to kill Fett and Shand.
Virtually the entire creative team behind The Mandalorian is returning for this spinoff set in the same period. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck are serving as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.
