‘The Mandalorian’ Creator Reveals Details Of ‘The Book Of Boba Fett’
We get clarity about Disney + 's The Mandalorian spinoff The Book of Boba Fett and the surprising scene at the end of the season two finale. It will be a standalone spin-off series and not a replacement for The Mandalorian Season 3, confirmed Mandalorian creator and showrunner Jon Favreau on Monday during an appearance on Good Morning America.
"We wanted to hold this back because we didn't want to spoil the surprise during the big Disney announcement for all of the shows. So they let me keep this a secret," said Favreau. "This is actually separate from the Mandalorian season 3," continued Favreau. Boba Fett's book is currently being filmed, as we previously reported, "and after that we're going into production with the third season of The Mandalorian, with the main character we all know and love (played by Pedro Pascal)." (See Favreau's full interview above.)
After the credits sequence in the Mandalorian finale, we see the return of the Jedi character Bib Fortuna, Jabba's old right man who sits on his throne in the old palace. Fennec (Ming-Na Wen) enters most of the creatures around him and breaks the shackles of the blue dancer. Then Boba comes in. Bib exclaims: "Boba, I thought you were dead!" Boba then shoots him and takes the throne in Jabba's palace. Then the title card “THE BOOK BOBA FETT…. COMING DECEMBER 2021 ”appeared on the screen. Questions followed as to whether The Book of Boba Fett was actually a standalone spin-off or whether it could be a replacement for The Mandalorian Season 3, which will also premiere in December 2021.
Temuera Morrison (Boba Fett) and Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) will star on the spin-off, and Robert Rodriguez will join as executive producer along with Favreau and Dave Filoni. Disney + also revealed the title art below.
