Ahead of the premiere of the highly anticipated live-action Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett, a 21-minute special has been released on Disney+. Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett celebrates the origins and legacy of the infamous, legendary bounty hunter, Boba Fett.

“Despite his lack of screentime, next to no dialogue … he’s everywhere.” – Dave Filoni

Boba Fett first appeared The Star Wars Holiday Special in 1978 and then later made his live-action debut in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, where he tracked down the Millennium Falcon for Darth Vader and delivered Han Solo — frozen in carbonite — to Jabba the Hutt. While he ultimately lacked lines and screen time, he has long since been a fan favorite Star Wars character.

For years, Boba Fett was assumed to be dead after his grisly fall into the sarlacc pit in the 1983 film Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. However, the character’s fate was finally revealed in the series The Mandalorian — he survived. Having previously portrayed Jango Fett in the prequels, Temuera Morrison took on the role of the bounty hunter.

Following Boba Fett and Fennec Shand’s takeover of Jabba’s Palace in the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, he’s set to appear in his own series, The Book of Boba Fett, which will premiere exclusively on Disney+ on December 29.
