Simply two weeks after Boba Fett made his triumphant, action-packed go back to the Megastar Wars universe on The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm and Disney have published that everybody’s favourite bounty hunter is getting his personal sequence in 2021.

[Ed. note: The rest of this story contains major spoilers for The Mandalorian season 2 episode 8]
Bankruptcy 16, “The Rescue,” had a post-credit scene stinger. In case you haven’t watched it, chances are you’ll need to grasp off on the remainder of this information.
Within the after credit scene, Boba Fett and Fennec Shand go back to Tatooine to handle unfinished industry. The sequence whisks us again to Jabba’s palace, the place Boba used to be unceremoniously catapulted into the sarlacc pit years sooner than. After blasting away a couple of guards, the duo come across a bloated Bib Fortuna sitting at the throne. (And ordering round his minions with instructions like “maclunkey!”) Whilst the Twi’lek recalls Boba in an instant, the ex-bounty hunter wastes roughly 0 breath explaining how he survived. Boba shoots the alien useless sooner than assuming his position at the throne in what may well be probably the most pulp, Frank Frazetta-ish e book duvet second in Megastar Wars historical past.
Rumors started swirling in early closing month that Lucasfilm and Disney have been bearing in mind a derivative sequence starring the famed Bounty Hunter. Capturing used to be even pegged to start out through the tip of November. However throughout Disney’s 2020 Traders Day name, by which Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy introduced plans for nine new Megastar Wars presentations together with The Mandalorian spinoffs The Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka, a breakout starring Boba actor Temuera Morrison used to be nowhere to be discovered.
Now we all know why. As an alternative of going the sophisticated Wonder course, Jon Favreau and his team put a reputation and date at the sequence. The E-book of Boba Fett will arrives in December 2021.
Whilst the sequence could have dozens of decommissioned “Legends” canon tales to attract inspiration from — he even as soon as took Han Solo’s daughter Jaina underneath his wing! — the authentic post-Disney canon is beautiful gentle on Boba Fett details. From the appearance of it, Boba shall be making waves on Tatooine for a minimum of the start of his new sequence as he destroys the legal underworld from the interior.
Disney didn’t observe the stinger with any formal announcement on the time of e-newsletter, so it’s unclear if there’s a brand new inventive crew in the back of the sequence. Favreau and Megastar Wars stalwart Dave Filoni will produce various the opposite introduced Lucasfilm sequence for Disney Plus, so there’s a robust risk they’ll oversee the derivative. Temuera Morrison is anticipated to reprise his function. On best of being a logical common for The E-book of Boba Fett, Ming-Na Wen could also be set to go back as Fennec Shand in a voice function at the upcoming Clone Wars sequel sequence The Dangerous Batch.
