Boba Fett’s book, due out Wednesday, will herald the return of one of the Star Wars universe’s most beloved bounty hunters to television and mobile screens at Disney + and Disney + Hotstar. Boba Fett, who starred in Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in the original Star Wars trilogy, is believed to have been killed when he fell into a Sarlacc pit. However, the rumors that Boba Fett had survived turned out to be true after he was brought back to season two of The Mandalorian, where he helped Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) the Jedi (and Mandalorian foundling) Grogu aka Baby Yoda to rescue.
In the second season of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett also rescued bounty hunter and fellow mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) in the Tatooine Desert. Then they briefly accompanied Din Djarin on his adventures and helped to rescue Grogu from the clutches of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) before they left for Tatooine again. According to Disney’s teasers and trailers for The Book of Boba Fett, Shand is set to help Boba Fett rule Tatooine after killing Bib Fortuna for the throne. Viewers should definitely check out The Mandalorian, especially Season 2 and its sixth episode, Chapter 14, before diving into The Book of Boba Fett on Wednesday.

The Book of Boba Fett is set to be an “in-depth” study of the popular bounty hunter, and showrunner Robert Rodriguez (of Spy Kids) recently revealed why he chose to work on a big franchise like this one. “I usually avoid prime real estate – you’ll never please everyone, it’s a losing game … I’d rather do something I created so no one could say, ‘Hey, this is wrong because …’ I have created it. so it can be anything I want. I love this freedom. That changed with Boba because he was a character who was always underserved. It was a character that was way more popular than he should have been based on [his limited screen time]. So it’s almost like starting with an original character. You can do what you want as long as you make him cool and don’t make him a buffoon, ”he says.
Rodriguez also says that The Book of Boba Fett’s teaser trailer was just a taste of the beginning of the series, as anything else to show “would give so much away”. He directed Chapter 14, a major episode of The Mandalorian season two, after being approached by producer Jon Favreau. According to Favreau, Rodriguez “crushed it” and they loved his take on the idea, which is where the idea for the new show came up. Meanwhile, Rodriguez promises big surprises in every episode of The Book of Boba Fett. “Things come up that you don’t expect, you see things that we couldn’t believe we should do. Every episode has big surprises, ”he says.
With that said, here is everything you need to know about the new live action Star Wars series.

In an event like this, when someone says, ‘You would be great’ for a part they are looking for, nine out of ten times, you just think, ‘OK, great, thank you.’ Lo and behold, Dave Filoni calls my team and says they wanted to offer me a role. The rest, as they say, is history, ”she says.
