Soon, fans will be able to watch The Book of Boba Fett in Disney+ and as usual we still don’t know too many details about what to expect from the spinoff series Star Wars and The Mandalorian the. There are some pictures, some comments made by cast and crew and a trailer and of course fan theory, but so far there aren’t many concrete details to get fans excited. However, Jon Favreau recently provided a bit of information from the series, including information regarding Boba Fett’s return to Jabba’s palace as he tries to take over the “business” in Tatooine that belongs to the crime lord. Starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, the series is scheduled to debut this December 29th.
In an interview with Empire, Favreau said, “There is a power vacuum, because Jabba is gone. Jabba was clearly a very strong and impressive leader, whom people feared greatly, and who seemed to rule with an iron fist. You pull someone like that out of the Tatooine ecosystem — and Hutt Space in general — and you stand a good chance of bringing the gangster genre to life. While Boba Fett is a very experienced bounty hunter, she has no experience running a criminal syndicate or managing an army. He’s not a newcomer. He’s an expert as we see him in most areas. But in this case, he is trying to switch to another position.”
The Book of Boba Fett is now the only major live action Star Wars series to arrive in 2021 because Obi-Wan Kenobi and season three The Mandalrorian will only arrive in 2022, while a number of other series such as Andor and Ahsoka Tano will only come after that.
The outline of the story is about Bobba Fett’s return to the planet Tatooine to assert his authority over the territory formerly ruled by the Hutt criminal family. The story will follow legendary bounty hunters Boba Fett and Fennec Shand as they try to navigate the Galaxy’s “underworld” as they return to the sands of Tatooine to risk their rights in the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
The Book of Boba Fett directed by Robert Rodriguez, and Jon Favreau, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Dave Filoni. Cinematographer Dean Cundey (Jurassic Park, The Thing) serves as director of photography for the series. Favreau, Filoni, Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson serve as executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian co-producing.
