‘The Book Of Boba Fett’ Sneaks Into 2021 With December Release Date

Can you believe it? The Mandalorian‘s second season ended last December, and there hasn’t been a live-action Star Wars series since. Well, there was no way Disney was going to let all of 2021 go without another, and so they’ve announced that spinoff The Book of Boba Fett will hit Disney+ on December 29th.

Sneaking in just before the end of 2021, The Book of Boba was teased at the conclusion of The Mandalorian season two. The event series will see Temuera Morrison return as Boba Fett, joined by Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, and based on what we’ve seen, they’ve taken over Jabba the Hutt’s criminal empire on Tatooine.

Jon Favreau, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Dave Filoni, all very involved in The Mandalorian, are also directing episodes here, joined by Robert Rodriguez who helmed several. Tenet and Rocky composer Ludwig Göransson is on the music, so get ready for some truly epic sounds for this one.

The Book of Boba Fett takes place alongside Ahsoka, another Mandalorian spinoff which could have huge implications for the Star Wars universe.
