The recent Boba Fett Mandalorian Cameo means that the rumours that the famous Star Wars character is getting his own TV Show could be true.
It’s believed a Star Wars mini-series focusing on Boba Fett is currently in development and will reportedly start filming next week.
The series will focus on Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett who recently returned in The Mandalorian Season 2 premiere on DisneyPlus.
UPDATE: It’s recently been confirmed that a Boba Fett series is on the way, titled ‘The Book of Boba Fett’. It will be available to stream in December 2021 with production for The Mandalorian Season 3 to begin shortly after.
According to Deadline, filming will start just before the planned filming of The Mandalorian Season 3. However, production for Season 3 of The Mandalorian could be delayed until next year.
Who Is Boba Fett In Star Wars:
Boba Fett is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. He’s a clone of his father Jango Fett. Boba trained in martial arts, wearing customised Mandalorian armour and weapons.
In Star Wars chronological order, we first saw Boba Fett as a child in Attack of the Clones. Later on, his father dies and Boba Fett takes his place.
Fast forward to Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and Han Solo ‘kills’ Boba Fett by accidentally hitting his Jet pack, leaving him to fall in Sarlacc Pit (those nasty sandworm things).
We thought that was the death of Boba Fett, until The Mandalorian Season 2 premiere…
Is Boba Fett In The Mandalorian:
Boba Fett appeared in The Mandalorian Season 2, Episode 1. At the end of the episode, we see a brief appearance of Boba Fett take a look at Mando from a distance and walk away.
This is a total of 5 years after he fell in the Sarlacc Pit. Whether we’ll see more of Boba Fett in The Mandalorian remains a mystery. But with his own mini-series on the way, it’s pretty likely.
Is Boba Fett a Mandalorian?
Technically, Boba Fett is not a Mandalorian. He was a clone of his father Jango Fett who was a Mandalorian.
So despite wearing the armour and learning the ways of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett never actually grew up in the Mandalorian culture. So close, yet so far.
Is A Boba Fett Series On The Way?
It’s looking very likely that a Boba Fett mini-series will definitely be on the way for DisneyPlus.
Many publications are reporting that it’s going ahead and the recent Boba Fett cameo in The Mandalorian makes it even more likely.
UPDATE: It has since been confirmed that A Boba Fett series titled: ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ is officially coming December 2021!
