“The Book of Boba Fett” hits Disney+ in the U.S. on December 29, and the streamer has released a new short trailer and some character posters.
The trailer teases an answer to a pressing question: How did Boba Fett survive his fall into the Sarlacc pit that was shown in “Star Wars: Return of The Jedi”? Especially since, as C-3PO explained, it slowly digests its victims over a thousand years.
“I am Boba Fett…left for dead on the sands of Tatooine” says the bounty hunter in a voiceover as we see him healing in a bacta tank. “Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.”
Watch the trailer:
“The Book of Boba Fett” finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) 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.
It was announced via an end credit scene in the Season 2 finale of “The Mandalorian.”
Disney+ also released two new character posters for Boba Fett and Fennec Shand:
The series is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.
I’m really looking forward to seeing this. Boba Fett is a great character to explore and I’m a fan of both Morrison’s and Wen’s past work.
