Disney+ announced that “The Book of Boba Fett”—the new Lucasfilm series teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian”—will premiere on Wednesday, December 29, exclusively on the streaming service. Disney+ also debuted the key art for the series.
The series, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, 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.
It stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Both are reprising their roles from The Mandalorian and other previous Star Wars media. Many attempts were made at creating a standalone Star Wars film centered on the bounty hunter before Lucasfilm began prioritizing its streaming series such as The Mandalorian.
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.
