UPDATE: Disney + has dropped the Official Logo for the upcoming 2021 series The Book of Boba Fett which you can see below. They also confirmed that it will be a separate series from The Mandalorian. This was some confusion as to what it would be at first but it has been confirmed since that Boba is indeed getting his own series and as well he should. Get excited!
*Major Spoilers Ahead!* This is certainly welcome news for Star Wars fans everywhere as we ewere given an early Christmas present yesterday with thew finale of The Mandalorian. The glorious news was uinveiled during the post credits scene of the episode which officially announced that everyone’s favorite bounty huner Boba fett, who made an appearance this season, is getting his own series titled The Book of Boba Fett! (Insert screaming and applauding here!)
There was little else revealed about it but we do know that the series will debut on Disney+ in December of 2021. The stinger scene that revealed the news involoved we see Bib Fortuna, Jabba The Hutt’s right-hand man sitting on the throne of his old master. Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec then makes a dramatic entrence and takes out everyone in the room and then proceeds to shoot the shackles off the blue slave dancer. Then the really cool part comes when Fett enters and to Fortuna’s surprise and says, “Boba, I thought you were dead!” Fett immediately takes out his blaster and shoots him in the chest and takes the throne of Hutt. Me telling you about it isn’t nearly as cool as watching it so you need to now if you haven’t!
It clearly seems that they are fixing a very grave wrong made in Return of the Jedi when Fett was unceromoniously and supposedly killed in the sarlac Pit. This has been a sore spot with fans for years but fear not, the Fett is back! Temuera Morrison is expected to return and play the iconic bounty hunter once more.
As a fan of Star Wars from the beginning this bodes much excitement and I love what they are doing with the iconic franchise on the streaming servive.
Stay tuned for 411 on The Book of Bobaq Fett series as December of next year can’t come fast enough. In the meantime, check out the monumental moment below!
