New “The Book of Boba Fett” Images Tease Iconic Bounty Hunter’s Big Move
Yesterday we got the first trailer for The Book of Boba Fett, revealing the upcoming Disney+ series centered on the iconic bounty hunter’s return to his old hunting grounds. Now, Disney+ has released a handful of new images and a new poster, giving us a few more glimpses at Boba’s big return to Tatooine, the planet once ruled with a blubbery fist (of sorts) by Jabba the Hutt.
Teased during an end-credits scene during the finale of The Mandalorian season 2, The Book of Boba Fett will be centered Boba’s return to Tatooine, where he once made his living working forthe planet’s undisputed crime lord, Jabba. As we all know, Jabba’s been dead a long time (he was choked out by Leia in Return of the Jedi), and now Boba Fett has miraculously returned himself (here’s hoping we get a flashback to how he survived being thrown into the Sarlacc pit by Luke, also in Return of the Jedi), and he’s got some ideas for power-sharing among the surviving underworld bosses. He’ll have help in the form of mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), and he’ll need it—Tatooine’s thriving crime world doesn’t look prepared to accept, or believe, the legendary bounty hunter comes in peace.
The new images tease Boba, Fennec, and the colorful cast of criminals who will populate The Book of Boba Fett—including Jennifer Beals in a new role.The series is executive produced by The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau, directors Robert Rodriguez and Dave Filioni, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. Your directors are Rodriguez, Favreau, Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
The Book of Boba Fett hits Disney+ on December 29. Check out the new images below.
