“The Book of Boba Fett,” a thrilling Star Wars adventure teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian,” 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.
This trailer is basically everything I wanted and more. The same looking production value as the Mandalorian, but now laser focused in the singular setting of Tatooine & Mos Eisley. It looks like we are going to get a look at the crime syndicates which were so great in the Clone Wars series, as well as plenty of intense action. Plus, the Boba theme(from Ludwig Göransson) sounded great. Without Mando on the immediate horizon, the countdown is on for December 29th.
ICYMI: I'll reiterate what excites me about this project:
1. I was nervous about the now 60 year-old Morrison taking on the role, but they clearly made it work. Also, Ming-Na Wen is incredibly badass as one of my favorite new additions to the SW universe, Fennec Shand. If you watched 'Star Wars: The Bad Batch', you can get a little more story and action from her as well.
2. Robert Rodriguez joining the Executive Producer team along with Dave Filoni and Jonny Favs. Rodriguez directed the episode of Mando where Boba Fett was reintroduced, and it was incredibly distinct from the rest of the episodes that season. I assume that he is got a big say in shaping of this series.
3. Ludwig Göransson joining as the composer. This dude is a monster and the next big thing in the composing world or whatever you want to call it. He did the incredible music for The Mandalorian, Black Panther, Creed, Tenet, and more.
