The infamous bounty hunter Boba Fett made a surprising and welcome return in season 2 of the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian, which immediately left audiences wanting more. Despite his overall lack of screen time in the films, he’s been a fan favorite character for decades.
As luck would have it, the end-credit sequence of the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian came bearing the news we were all waiting for — The Book of Boba Fett. While we’ve known that the series was due to land on the streaming service sometime in December, Disney+ has finally confirmed that the premiere date will be Wednesday, December 29. The first piece of key art for the show has also been shared.
The Book of Boba Fett will find legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) 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.
