Disney+ Day Celebrates Boba Fett

On Friday, November 12, The Walt Disney Company will host Disney+ Day, in which subscribers will be treated to new content releases across the streaming service's iconic brands — including Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic. In a press release announcing the event, Disney revealed that a new documentary special about Boba Fett will premiere as part of the inaugural Disney+ Day.

It's unclear if this special, which will celebrate "the origins and legacy" of the legendary bounty hunter, will include a behind-the-scenes look at "The Book of Boba Fett," but it's likely that some new information about the highly-anticipated series will be unveiled.

Ludwig Göransson Will Reportedly Score The Book of Boba Fett

According to Film Music Reporter, Swedish composer Ludwig Göransson ("The Mandalorian") is returning to the galaxy far, far away to score "The Book of Boba Fett." Göransson won the Primetime Emmy Award for outstanding music composition for a series in 2020 for "The Mandalorian ("Chapter 8: Redemption") and in 2021 for "Chapter 16: The Rescue" — not to mention an Oscar for Marvel's "Black Panther" — so it's easy to see why Lucasfilm and Disney would be eager to bring the composer, conductor, and record producer back for this spin-off series.

Executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez, "The Book of Boba Fett" will premiere on Disney+ in December.

Is There a Star Wars Video Game in the Works From Quantic Dream?

A new "Star Wars" video game is rumored to be in development from Quantic Dream, the French company behind interactive narrative games like "Heavy Rain," "Beyond: Two Souls," and "Detroit: Become Human." According to Tom Henderson of DualShockers, the studio has been developing a "Star Wars" title for approximately 18 months. Kotaku confirms the report, adding that the gameplay of this new title will be more dynamic than any of Quantic Dream's previous games:

"According to [our source], Quantic Dream has indeed been working on a Star Wars game for approximately a year and a half, but it won't be the conventional type of quick-time-event-driven game we've come to expect from the French studio. Instead, they said, the game will have more traditional action gameplay, and possibly even open world and multiplayer elements."

Also, Bespin Bulletin reported that Quantic Dream opened a new studio in Montréal for the purposes of developing a new title:

"In February of this year, Quantic Dreams launched a new studio in Montreal and hired industry veteran Stéphane D'Astous who previously established Eidos Montreal, best known for their Deux Ex games. QD also hired gameplay director, Yohan Cazaux, who worked on multiple Assassins Creed titles such as Black Flag, Origins and was the lead on the recently released, Valhalla. The new studio wouldn't be working on a separate project, but would be working with QD's Paris studio on one singular title."
