The first trailer for Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett has arrived, showcasing just how dangerous its title bounty hunter can be as he seeks to take over Tatooine’s underworld. The Disney Plus series will be arriving this December.
Boba Fett is the best bounty hunter in the galaxy… Or rather, he used to be. Five years after an uncharacteristically embarrassing defeat on Tatooine, Fett has been presumed dead, but he’s making a hell of a comeback tour after Din Djarin helped reunite him with his iconic suit of armor, which was once worn by his father, Jango. Working alongside fellow veteran bounty hunter Fennic Shand, whose life he saved after she was left for dead in the desert, Fett begins to write a new chapter in his life as he reflects on his past.
Watch the new trailer here:
The series follows the character’s reintroduction in the second season of The Mandalorian, which revealed that he somehow escaped the Sarlaac that ate him. Soon after upholding a promise to help the man who reunited him with the family heirloom, Fett travelled to the palace once owned by Jabba the Hutt and shot his former lackey Bib Fortuna dead as he took the throne. What’s next for our brutal anti-hero? Atonement? Revenge? A move to reorganize and take over Jabba’s criminal empire? We already have an idea, but take a look for yourself in the trailer below:
In addition, a new poster has been released:
Robert Rodriguez, who oversaw Fett’s spectacular return in The Mandalorian‘s “Chapter 14: The Tragedy”, is serving as the showrunner for The Book of Boba Fett, and is also directing multiple episodes of the series. Fellow Mandalorian alumni Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard are also confirmed to direct episodes, with Favreau, Filoni, and Kathleen Kennedy once again executive producing the series. The series stars Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen as Fennic Shand.
The Book of Boba Fett is set to begin airing on Disney Plus starting December 29, 2021. Lucasfilm’s slate of other Star Wars projects for the streaming service includes the likes of Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka, The Acolyte, Lando, A Droid Story, and Rangers of the New Republic, along with The Mandalorian (which is currently filming a third season) and The Bad Batch (a second season of which is well underway), both of which are slated to arrive next year. Hopefully, we’ll get more information about the future Star Wars slate on Disney Plus Day, which is on November 12.
