As teased in an end-credit sequence following the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett’s journey will continue in The Book of Boba Fett, a new Disney+ Original Series produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez. Set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and starring Temuera Morrison as the titular bounty hunter, along with Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, The Book of Boba Fett is currently in production and will arrive December 2021 on Disney+.

As a massive Boba Fett fan, this is a total dream come true. While the official announcement states the series is set during the events of The Mandalorian, the title suggests the show may have some anthology elements, like Dark Horse Comics’ Star Wars Tales or those classic books of the Expanded Universe era like Tales From Jabba’s Palace and Tales of the Bounty Hunters.

If the show utilizes a framing technique that has Boba reminiscing on his life and career as the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunter, we may get to see some fabled moments from the character’s past that will disintegrate (in a good way) the hearts and minds of diehard Fett fans everywhere. Here are some people, places, and things that really, really should appear in the upcoming series.

Disney+ Watch Party

Netflix and Amazon Prime Video both offer the option, which allows viewers to invite multiple participants to stream an available title together. Streaming service Disney+ doesn’t have an option for this – but that might be about to change.

Disney Theatrical Movies

With movie theaters shut down for the time being, and so many movie release dates delayed, moviegoers are wondering if more and more titles will go directly to digital or streaming. Disney made this decision recently with one of their upcoming movies, Artemis Fowl, which is headed right to Disney+. Could that mean additional Disney theatrical titles will go straight there as well? According to Bob Iger, yes – but don’t expect that from huge tentpole movies like Black Widow or Mulan.

disney non-scripted shows

While you wait for The Mandalorian to return, you should keep in mind that Disney+ has other original shows as well. And they’re already planning some new ones, too. These new shows are reality-based, which means Baby Yoda won’t be appearing in them (sorry). The new titles include The Quest, which is a reality show that somehow takes place in a fantasy world; The Team, which will pair teams of one adult and one teen; Meet The Chimps, which heads to the Chimp Haven wildlife sanctuary; and an untitled Pixar series that follows Pixar employees making their own animated short films.

fox name change

Say goodbye to 20th Century Fox (and Fox Searchlight, too). Disney, which purchased Fox last year, is killing off the Fox name and rebranding the respective companies as 20th Century Studios and Searchlight Pictures. Insiders suspect the move is an attempt to distance the studios from Fox News, which was not part of Disney’s acquisition.

weekend box office frozen II

This might come as a surprise to you, but Disney made a lot of money this year. I know, I know – who would’ve guessed the giant studio that owns nearly every popular franchise would turn a profit? With only a few measly weeks left in 2019, Disney has come out on top as the reigning global box office champ for the year, with Frozen II winning the weekend box office yet again, to boot. And that’s not even taking into account the potential windfall from the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. In other words: it’s good to be Disney.
