The new year is almost over, but one thing that is definitely over is the second season of The Mandalorian! And I loved it! But I’m probably not going to do any deeper dive on my thoughts or a review. It was all pretty great. So great, in fact, that I think you might enjoy some behind-the-scenes videos I stumbled across. I think these are taken from the official behind-the-scenes show on Disney+, but here they are on YouTube for everyone to enjoy.
Specifically, lets take some behind-the-scenes looks at Ahsoka Tano, Boba Fett and Bo-Katan!
I would say those were pretty fun! I look forward to all of their spin-off shows, and the next season of The Mandalorian! But first we all have to survive 2021 somehow! Good luck to us all!
Merry Christmas week, everybody! This year we received the greatest present of all time: the announcement, at long last, of the Boba Fett TV series! A Boba Fett movie has been in the works for as long as Disney has owned Stat Wars. But after false starts and failed projects, we finally have the official announcement of The Book of Boba Fett for next December!
Once upon a time, I used to do Christmas-themed lists the week of Christmas. I did one about snowmen, one about reindeer, one about Santa in comics…but I ran out of Christmas things to make lists about. So now I feel like doing a nice, simple list where I talk about all the exciting things I want to see in the Boba Fett TV show! That sounds like a fun Christmas activity. And a year from now, when the show kicks off, we can all look back on this list to see if I got anything right!
I am not ashamed of blatant fan service, especially not when it comes to my personal Lists of Six about Star Wars things. And I promise not to put Wraith Squadron on this one. So join me after the jump for my hopes and dreams for The Book of Boba Fett!Read the rest of this entry
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!
Color me surprised! According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney and Star Wars are bringing back Boba Fett for reals finally in the second season of The Mandalorian! Not only that, but he’s going to be played by Temuera Morrison, the actor who played Jango Fett in the prequels!
Jeez louise! This is madness. Great, but madness. It makes total sense, too. Considering all of the things that Disney has made in Star Wars, The Mandalorian has to be everyone’s favorite, right? And it looks like Disney is going all-in on fan-pleasing excitement. They’re bringing in a live action Ahsoka Tano, and now they’re finally bringing in Boba Fett!
There are two important things. One, The Mandalorian takes place after Boba Fett was supposedly killed in the Sarlaac Pit. So this is finally, Disney-canon confirmation that Boba survived and is back to kick butt and take names in the galaxy. Two, they cast the guy who played Jango Fett! Which is important, since Boba is his cloned son! So somebody out there is clearly paying attention to what people want these days: continuity. They could have cast anybody to play Boba Fett and nobody would have batted an eye. But somebody, somewhere, in the depths of Disney, knew they needed to appease fans by keeping the continuity of the whole ‘clone’ thing going. Fancy that.
As a Star Wars fan who loves the minutiae of the lore, this pleases me.
I’ve been watching the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures shorts for awhile. They’re just plain fun! And now they’ve finally done one starring Boba Fett!
I’m a big Boba Fett fan! He’s such a fun guy. He’s a total badass. And his design is one of the all-time greatest designs in the history of science fiction. So enjoy this short bit of Boba Fett awesomeness this morning!
