New Teaser for The Book of Boba Fett

A new minute-long teaser for "The Book of Boba Fett" has arrived, which you can watch above! Titled "The Return," the spot focuses on Fett escaping the Great Pit of Carkoon and reclaiming what's his. Listen for the sound of the Firespray's seismic charges woven into Ludwig Göransson's score. 

Starring Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, "The Book of Boba Fett" debuts on Disney+ on December 29.

The Acolyte Casts Amandla Stenberg

Amandla Stenberg (of "The Hunger Games" and "Sleepy Hollow") will reportedly play the lead character in  "Star Wars: The Acolyte," the upcoming live-action Disney+ series from Leslye Headland ("Russian Doll"). Variety confirmed a recent scoop from The Illuminerdi that the nonbinary actor would be playing the lead character, who might be named or codenamed "Aura."

"The Acolyte" is a mystery thriller that will "take us into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging Dark Side powers in the final days of the High Republic era." It's believed the series will take place roughly 50 years before the events of "The Phantom Menace" and focus heavily on female characters and martial arts action.
