The Book of Boba Fett Has Been Confirmed as Its Own Show!
This was a bit of a pickle over the weekend and it turns out we’ve already got an answer! The Book of Boba Fett — which was teased in the final episode of The Mandalorian season 2 — is going to be its own spin-off show. Jon Favreau said as much on Good Morning America this morning.
The show will feature the same producers, Favreau and Dave Filoni, with the addition of Robert Rodriguez, who directed Boba Fett’s debut episode on The Mandalorian. Rodriguez, obviously, is a pretty awesome Hollywood director, so this is cool as heck! The show will involve the continuing adventures of Boba Fett and his sidekick, Fennec Shand, with Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen continuing their roles.
I thought, for sure, that The Book of Boba Fett was going to be the third season of The Mandalorian. It seemed like a bold new strategy for the popular series, spending a season following a different version of a Mandalorian. But I will gladly accept both a new spin-off focusing on Boba Fett, along with a third season of The Mandalorian.
Add to that the Ahsoka Tano show and The Rangers of the New Republic and Disney is building quite the little connected Star Wars TV Universe here. And I am in favor of all of it! Bring it on!
