This article contains spoilers for The Mandalorian season two.
After months of rumours, Lucasfilm have officially confirmed Boba Fett will be getting his own spin-off series on Disney+.
During the rather epic season two finale of The Mandalorian, a post-credit scene announced that the popular bounty hunter will be getting his own show titled The Book Of Boba Fett with a release date of December 2021.
There is also the possibility this series could be the title of The Mandalorian season three, which is also said to air Christmas next year, with the show now focusing on Boba Fett.
Teasing the show, we saw Temuera Morrison’s Boba take over Jabba The Hutt’s palace, then sitting on the crime lord’s throne with Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec by his side helping him on his mission.
Returning to the Star Wars world in season two of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett helped Mando on his mission after the titular hero gave the bounty hunter his armour back.
Despite rumours circulating for months that Boba would get his own show, when Lucasfilm announced their upcoming slate at the recent Disney Investor Day it wasn’t part of the reveals.
Whilst we initially thought this was because the series wasn’t happening, now we know they were saving it as a surprise announcement for The Mandalorian’s season two finale.
Plot details of the show are currently unknown, but we know it will be a spin-off from The Mandalorian with the post-credits scene suggesting Fennec will feature heavily in it.
And with the scene seeing him murder Jabba’s lieutenant Bib Fortuna, we would guess the series will follow Boba as he tries to gain control over Jabba’s Empire.
It is also highly likely there will be crossover with not only The Mandalorian, but the two other spin-off shows announced: Ahsoka and Rangers Of The New Republic, both of which will also arrive on Disney+ in the coming years.
The Book Of Boba Fett will arrive on Disney+ December 2021.
