Disney Plus THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT “Reign” Spot Gives New Glimpse Of Slave I, Jabba’s Palace And Fennec Shand/Boba Fett Team-Up
“I Am Boba Fett.” Boba is Back!
Fans of the legendary bounty hunter have only a month to wait. On December 29th, Disney Plus begins airing Star Wars THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT.
With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. A genetic clone of his “father,” bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba learned combat and martial skills from a young age. Over the course of his career, which included contracts for the Empire and the criminal underworld, he became a legend.
“The Book of Boba Fett,” a thrilling Star Wars adventure teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian,” 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.
“The Book of Boba Fett” stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.

“There is a power vacuum,” Favreau tells the magazine, “because Jabba is gone. Jabba was clearly a very strong and imposing leader, who people were very scared of, and who seemed to rule with an iron fist. You pull somebody like that out of the ecosystem of Tatooine — and Hutt Space in general — and you have the opportunity that’s ripe in the gangster genre.”
The issue will also include insights on other forthcoming projects, with Kennedy discussing Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen reprising their prequel trilogy roles in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. “The thing that was most exciting was being on the set and watching the two of them get excited,” Kennedy tells Empire. “They hadn’t seen one another in a long time. I was surprised at just how incredibly emotional it was for each of them to find themselves back in these roles, and just realizing how important Star Wars was to each of them. It was the beginning of their careers.”
The special issue of Empire hits stands November, 25, 2021.
