The Book of Boba Fett Season 2

There are rumors swirling about a second season of "The Book of Boba Fett." Scooper Daniel Richtman aka @DanielRPK recently revealed via his Patreon that Season 2 is currently in development. Given the show's impressive viewership numbers, and the popularity of the character, this seems like a no-brainer. 

As Star Wars News Net points out, actress Ming-Na Wen, who plays bounty hunter Fennec Shand in the series, is hopeful for a second season as well. At Fan Expo Boston, Wen was asked about what's next for her and had this to say:

"Second season of The Book of Boba Fett, I hope! ... I never count my chickens before they hatch, because in this business, you just never know. But, knock on wood, they'll be announcing that soon."

Check out the video of her response below:

If Richtman is right, we could hear an announcement about "The Book of Boba Fett" Season 2 during Disney+ Day or at D23 Expo.

Favreau & Filoni on the Mandoverse

Speaking of the Mandoverse, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau sat down with Entertainment Weekly during Star Wars Celebration to discuss how they are expanding the legacy of 'Star Wars' with upcoming shows like "The Mandalorian" Season 3 and "Ahsoka."

"We love seeing the development of all these series, you know? From the new show we're doing with Jon Watts, 'Skeleton Crew,' but when you look at 'Andor,' you look at 'Obi-Wan,' you look at 'Mando', you look at 'Boba...' They all do have a different feeling and a different tone, and I think that's remarkable and really speaks to the serialized nature of 'Star Wars' and how it can be a very flexible galaxy."

Star Wars: Visions Volume 2

Deadline recently interviewed "Star Wars: Visions" executive producer James Waugh about volume two of the animated anthology series and the shift from anime to different flavors of animation:

"Volume two is sort of a global tour of some of the most interesting animation studios on a global level. We have studios from South Africa, Chile, England, Ireland, France, India... and the guiding light there was that we wanted their storytelling to be a reflection of what 'Star Wars' meant in their culture, but also a reflection of the myths and stories that could only come out of their cultural context. Spring next year is currently where we're targeting and I think it's an absolutely beautiful anthology."
