Every galaxy has an underworld.Official trailer

The Book of Boba Fett is a live-action television series that focuses on the character Boba Fett with its first episode released on December 29, 2021. It was first teased, with its title and release window, in a post-credits sequence of the season two finale of The Mandalorian.

Official description

The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, 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.[8]

Development

Boba Fett made his full return to Star Wars in The Mandalorian's "Chapter 14: The Tragedy," an episode that Robert Rodriguez directed. Series executive producer Jon Favreau originally approached Rodriguez to direct the important episode. Favreau loved Rodriguez's interpretation of the character, so Favreau decided to pitch to Rodriguez and the studio the idea of creating more episodes. Although Rodriguez usually avoided franchises, that changed with Boba as Rodriguez felt that he was an underserved character and that it was as if he was an original character Rodriguez could expand.[11]

Reports of a Boba Fett–centered Disney+ miniseries first surfaced online in early November 2020. The reports also mentioned that the series' filming had begun.[12] On December 10, 2020, Kathleen Kennedy teased that the "next chapter" of The Mandalorian would arrive on Christmas of 2021.[13] Although many fans perceived this to be the third season of The Mandalorian,[14][15] "Chapter 16: The Rescue," the Season Two finale of The Mandalorian released on December 18, 2020, teased that The Book of Boba Fett would be the show to arrive in that timeframe.[16]

The following Monday, show producer Jon Favreau appeared on Good Morning America on the ABC Television Network. He clarified that the two were separate shows, with The Book of Boba Fett arriving first.[17] A StarWars.com post later that day reiterated this and stated that The Mandalorian Season Three would go into production in 2021.[1] Filming officially wrapped on June 8, 2021,[18] and the series was still in post-production as of September of that year.[19]

Music

On September 22, 2021, it was reported that Ludwig Göransson would be composing the music for the show.[20] The show is scored by Joseph Shirley, while Göransson composed the music themes, including the title theme.[9]

Release

The first teaser trailer was released on November 1, 2021.[21] The released footage of the series was restrained in what was revealed. The promotional trailers mainly used the first minutes of the series premiere, as according to Rodriguez, the second half of the episode gave too much information.[11][9]
