Star Wars freaks, prepare to go bananas. Yes, folks, there is new Star Wars news coming down the pipeline this week, and nerds across the board are simply freaking out. Star Wars has been on the minds of sci-fi fans everywhere since the legendary franchise began to twist the minds of space freaks in the 70s, but no one could have expected the massive community which the Star Wars universe has created IRL.
Star Wars has had peaks & valleys in popularity since the series dropped, but there has always been a steady flow of fandom rushing toward the franchise since Star Wars got started. However, there hasn’t ever been such a consistent string of years for the franchise as the past few, when Disney Plus started pumping out brand new Star Wars series for its ravenous fan base.
The Mandalorian may have gotten a whole new generation hooked on Star Wars, but move over, Baby Yoda, there’s a new Star Wars spin-off series in town. This week, a trailer for The Book of Boba Fett has dropped, and people are losing their sh*t after seeing the new sneak peek. So what’s the tea? Here’s what we have found.
The Hollywood Reporter dropped a story about The Book of Boba Fett on Monday, and fans across the board are saying, “Baby Yoda who?”. The publication let its readers know a trailer for The Book of Boba Fett dropped Monday, and that fans have plenty to look forward to with the upcoming series.
Some may have expected a brand new film series coming from the Star Wars universe, or even a new season of the beloved Mandalorian. However, news says the Star Wars buzz is all about a brand new TV series coming to Disney Plus. The show will focus on the celebrated Star Wars quintessential bounty hunter Boba Fett, but that isn’t all fans can expect from the upcoming series.
Reports say The Book of Boba Fett will pick up where The Mandalorian’s second season left off, in terms of Boba Fett’s storyline.
Fett’s storyline in The Mandalorian ended with Fett taking over Jabba the Hutt’s throne. Fans of the O.G. Star Wars films will no doubt remember the chonky space monster who lit up the screen in the first few Star Wars films, before finally meeting his end in Return of the Jedi.
With The Book of Boba Fett already shredding headlines with its trailer announcement, fans have lots of questions about the new series. Who will appear in The Book of Boba Fett? Who’s producing the show? Will we see some of the same faces we came to know & love in The Mandalorian or will the new series veer off into brand new realms with new actors & crew?
Reports say Temuera Morrison will once again play Fett in the new series. Fans will remember that Morrison plays Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels. Furthermore, true Star Wars freaks know Jango is the O.G. Fett, and that Boba is Jango’s clone, although he was treated like a direct relative by the original Fett.
Ming-Na Wen will also star in The Book of Boba Fett. Furthermore, the new Star Wars series has some serious production power. Reports say Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson will executive produce The Book of Boba Fett, with Karen Gilchrist & Carrie Beck co-executive producing, and John Bartnicki & John Hampian co-producing.
It’s hard to say what else we’ll come to see in The Book of Boba Fett, but we’ll just have to wait for the series to drop to find out. The Book of Boba Fett comes to Disney Plus on December 29th.
