A New “The Book of Boba Fett” Teaser Reveals the Millennium Falcon & More
Disney+ has just dropped a new The Book of Boba Fett teaser that goes big on mood, action, and one brief but compelling glimpse at the most famous spaceship in Star Wars history. This minute-long, nearly wordless glimpse has a bunch of fresh footage, and the arrival of the Millennium Falcon is but one cool new moment. Titled “The Return,” the new teaser gives us the gist of the upcoming series without needing to resort to dialogue—the iconic bounty hunter (played by Temura Morrison) has miraculously survived being tossed into the Sarlacc Pit in The Return of the Jedi and is ready to stake his claim in Tatooine’s underworld. “Left for dead on the sands of Tatooine,” our hero says at the end of the new look, “I am Boba Fett.”
Indeed you are. We’ve been waiting for The Book of Boba Fett since the existence of the series was first revealed in an end-credits scene during the finale of The Mandalorian season 2. The series is set after the events of The Return of the Jedi and will track Boba’s return to Tatooine and his attempts to create something like a power-sharing agreement in Jabba the Hutt’s former territory. Jabba’s reign was snuffed out courtesy of Princess Leia, who used the very chains he used to keep her captive to choke him to death. Boba’s resurrection will come as a shock to the criminal underworld who filled the power vacuum left by Jaba’s death, and who likely will feel that there’s little chance the sudden return of the seasoned bounty hunter is a good thing for them.
Boba does have an ally, however—Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen)—and the two of them will need each other if they’re going to survive in Tatooine’s thriving, conniving, dangerous crime world. You can’t blame those criminals who have trouble believing the legendary bounty hunter comes in peace.
The Book of Boba Fett is executive produced by The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau, directors Robert Rodriguez and Dave Filioni, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. The series’ directors are Rodriguez, Favreau, Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
The Book of Boba Fett hits Disney+ on December 29. Check out the new teaser below:
