Everyone’s Favorite (Original) Bounty Hunter Boba Fett Gets His Own Disney + Show, Boba Fett’s book, which will be released later this year.
If you looked The Mandalorian season 2 finale, you would have seen Pedro Pascal’s current storyline of Din Djarin with Baby Yoda or Grogu come to an end. So what has Disney planned for Boba Fett’s book? Let’s find out!
Who is part of the cast of Boba Fett’s Book?
Temuera Morrison returns as Boba Fett after debuting in 2002 Episode II – Attack of the Clones like Jango Fett, Boba’s “father”. Jango was the role model for the Clone Troopers, so no one would blink the fact that his son is the same. However, it is unlikely that they took off their masks so often!
Ming-Na Wen also returns as Fennec Shan after appearing in The Mandalorian and having voiced a younger version of the character in Star Wars: The Wrong Lot.
Oddly enough, Wen didn’t even know she was spinning Boba Fett’s book first. It shows how secret the whole process was.
“We’re so secretive about everything, aren’t we?” She told Digital Spy. “We don’t call shows, shows. The contracts are always under different names. The show is under different names.
“When I was told I was going to become a regular on the show, I automatically assumed it was for The Mandalorian season three. And then when the scripts came out it said 301, 302, 303, 304. So I just assumed I was signing – because it doesn’t say The Mandalorian on my contracts.
“So for two weeks, while I was working with Tem [Temuera Morrison] and Robert [Rodriguez], I had no idea I was filming the spin-off.
When they found out what they were filming, the cast and crew were incredibly excited, she added.
“They call her [The Book of Boba Fett] The Mandalorian 2.5, in a sense. So I didn’t have it all wrong, ”she said.
Rumor has it that Mando himself will make an appearance, which makes sense as Disney touts the new series as “the next chapter” in The Mandalorian story.
That’s all we know about the cast, but in terms of the team Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are returning as executive producers after working on The Mandalorian. And Robert Rodriguez, who directed an episode of The Mandalorian, is also an executive producer.
What is the show about?
Boba Fett’s book is a fallout from The Mandalorian with Boba Fett and his partner Fennec Shand. The Mandalorian The post-credit scene from Season 2 shows the couple recapturing Jabba the Hutt’s former place on Tatooine, suggesting that Boba is setting himself up as a crime lord on the outer rim of the galaxy.
This will open up plenty of opportunities for Fett to interact with old and new characters – good and bad.
Morrison revealed in an interview with Rotten Tomatoes on Boba Fett’s book, “Well, we can’t say too much, but we’ll see his past and where he’s been since. The Empire Strikes Back. Someone pointed out that he was sort of stuck in this one place, and now is the time to step back in time and check out his trip and find out more about him.
We also have more information in the synopsis for Boba Fett’s book, who says :
“The Book of Boba Fett,” an exciting Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the underworld of the galaxy as they return to the sands of Tatooine to claim their once land run by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.

“And then we go into production right after that in season 3 of The Mandalorian, back with the main character we have all known and loved. So it’s gonna be really soon after that, we’re working on that pre-production now while we’re in production on Boba Fett.
