So this might not be a movie preview, but it’s easily one of the most highly anticipated things this year. This morning Disney dropped the highly anticipated first trailer for their upcoming streaming series “The Book of Boba Fett”. Revealed at the end of season two of “The Mandolarian”, the Boba Fett series is set within the Mandolarian timeline. And Lucasfilm has hitched some exciting directors to head the episodes including Robert Rodriguez, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jon Favreau, and of course Dave Filoni.
Temuera Morrison reprises his role as bounty hunter extraordinaire Boba Fett and the first trailer shows him taking the throne once held by the slug-like crime lord Jabba the Hutt. The trailer also shows the return of mercenary and assassin Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) who looks to play a prominent role in the upcoming series. Those familiar with the Star Wars universe should enjoy the various looks we get at iconic locations, familiar species, etc. But the trailer also teases some new things which could/should expand the universe in a number of cool and exciting ways. I can’t wait.
The first episode of “The Book of Boba Fett” is set to premiere December 29th exclusively on Disney+. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
