Empire magazine revealed two covers for their January 2022 issue (see below), which will have Boba Fett front and center. According to the story on their website, the new issue will feature exclusive images from the series, as well as interviews with executive producers Jon Favreau, Robert Rodriguez, Dave Filoni, as well as Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy and stars Ming-Na Wen and Temuera Morrison.
Among the topics discussed in the interviews, they will address “the show’s old-school mobster influences, that teaser at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2, the Boba projects that never came to be, the process of creating a fleshed-out character to match that iconic armor, and much more.” But that is not it — in the new issue, Kathleen Kennedy and Dave Filoni will also talk about future projects, including Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka, among others.
Obi-Wan Kenobi is currently targeting a 2022 release, while Ahsoka is planning to shoot next year, possibly beginning in March. The former released a sizzle reel last week that is currently available to all Disney Plus subscribers on the platform.
Here is the main cover of the January 2022 issue of Empire magazine:
