The Book of Boba Fett Flashbacks

Before The Mandalorian continues on Disney+, Star Wars fans will take a break with a new live-action series focusing on the return of one of the most notorious bounty hunters in the galaxy.

The Book of Boba Fett is bringing back the character who debuted in The Empire Strikes Back, seemed to perish in Return of the Jedi, and made a triumphant return on the second season of The Mandalorian. Actor Temuera Morrison reprised his role as the clone/adoptive son of the bounty hunter Jango Fett, and he recently revealed that The Book of Boba Fett flashbacks will reveal to fans where the character has been all this time. Furthermore, filmmaker Robert Rodriguez will be doing more than executive producing the series. Read More »

Temuera Morrison can’t seem to get away from aliens. He’s either hunting them or they’re hunting him — or he’s chatting with them over the dinner table. While he plays a renowned alien bounty hunter in the Star Wars universe (and will be getting his own The Mandalorian spin-off with The Book of Boba Fett), Morrison gets to do all three of the above in the Occupation Rainfall clip that /Film is debuting. Watch it below.

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.

The Mandalorian Boba Fett Poster

Last week’s episode of The Mandalorian brought yet another huge development in the Star Wars universe with the return of the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett. After being presumed dead in the mouth of the sarlaac pit in Return of the Jedi, the son of Jango Fett actually survived, and in the episode entitled “The Tragedy,” he finally made his presence known to Din Djarin and asked for the return of his armor. With Boba Fett’s redemption complete, he’s now been given his own character poster. Read More »

Well, you can’t make a show about a Mandalorian without including the most famous guy to ever wear the armor. Famed bounty Boba Fett, who was killed-off in Return of the Jedi but grew incredibly popular in the decades since due to appearances in novels, comics, and video games, will play a role in season 2 of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian. And in a piece of casting that will bring a smile to the face of anyone who appreciates continuity, he’ll be played by Temuera Morrison, who took on the role of Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.

Star Wars Episode VII Contest JJ Abrams

When the first photo posted of the initial grouping of cast members for Star Wars: Episode VII, some critics quickly jumped on the film for only adding one new female role. Those who were paying any attention, however, saw that the leaked Star Wars casting breakdowns featured multiple roles for women. The trade papers did their homework, and hours later reported that two more female roles were yet to be cast. Today those actresses were announced. (You can read about that here.)

With so much negative second-guessing and uninformed ranting about a story and characters we don’t even know anything about yet, I thought I’d point out something positive.
