Disney+ has released a poster for Lucasfilm’s highly-anticipated live-action Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett. The art reveals Boba Fett sitting on the throne in the Jabba’s palace, and it also shows that the series will premiere on Disney+ on December 29th.
This series was based at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2 with Boba Fett and Fennec Shand going to Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine where Fett kills Jabba’s former majordomo and chief of staff, Bib Fortuna. He then takes the throne as Shand takes her position at his side. Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen are coming back to their roles.
Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book, Elf), Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Alita: Battle Angel), and Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: The Bad Batch) have developed the series as executive producers and directors.
The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
Rodriguez said about the series saying, “It’s going to blow your mind. That’s all I can say. I can talk it up all I want because I know it over-delivers. It way over-delivers. People are going to be so pumped when they see it.”
