Book of Boba Fett Promo Provides Insight into Star Wars New Criminal Alliance
A new promo for Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett establishes the titular bounty hunter at the head of the table in the criminal world of Tatooine.
Lucasfilm revealed another promo for its upcoming Disney + original series Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, which premieres in ten days on Wednesday, December 29.
The well-titled Promo “Authority” establishes Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) as the new hub of Tatooine’s criminal underworld, the legendary bounty hunter apparently forming alliances with his fellow villains. “Do you trust them? Boba Fett’s right-hand man, Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), asks. “I trust them to work for their own benefit,” replies the bounty hunter.
Boba Fett’s book stems from the events of The Mandalorian Season 2, which started airing on Disney + a little over a year ago. In its second season, The Mandalorian – which takes place after the events of the original Star wars film trilogy – revealed that Boba Fett had indeed survived the events of the 1983s Return of the Jedi.
Morrison, who played Jango Fett in the 2002s Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, took on the role of Boba Fett for season 2 of The Mandalorian. After his return, it was revealed that Boba Fett had teamed up with mercenary Fennec Shand, who was originally introduced in The Mandalorian Season 1.
The Mandalorian Season 2 ended with a post-credits sting, which saw Boba Fett and Fennec Shand venture to Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine after helping Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and his company in their quest to retrieve Grogu from the claws of Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito). Upon arriving on Tatooine, Boba Fett killed Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood), who had evidently taken Jabba the Hutt’s place after Jabba’s death at the hands of Leia Organa in Return of the Jedi. Boba Fett immediately filled that power vacuum, claiming the throne for himself with Fennec by his side.
“Boba Fett’s book, a thrilling Star Wars adventure teased in a surprise ending credits sequence following the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the underworld of the galaxy as they return to the sands of Tatooine to claim their territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate, ”reads one in an official synopsis for the series.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett arrives on Disney + on December 29.
