Disney+has set Dec. 29 as the premiere date for The Book of Boba Fett, the spinoff of The Mandalorian. The series which was flagged in the post-credits scene in The Mandalorian season 2 finale, follows the bounty hunter, played by Temuera Morrison.
The Book of Boba Fett will center on the fan-favourite character and mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) and how they navigate the galaxy’s underworld when they return to Tatooine and stake a claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt’s syndicate.
The Book of Boba Fett will be the second live-action Star Wars series to debut on Disney+. Disney also has a series centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) in the pipeline along with two other Mandalorian spinoffs, Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic. All told, Disney plans to air 11 Star Wars series in the next several years.
The third season of The Mandalorian, meanwhile, is expected to debut later next year.
