The “Return of a Legend” video features filmmakers Dave Filoni, Jon Favreau and Robert Rodriguez, and stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, giving an overview of the show and celebrating Boba Fett’s arrival next Wednesday, December 29, exclusively on Disney+.
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.
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson are the executive producers.
Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.
Boba Fett made his big-screen debut in 1980’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, becoming an instant fan favorite thanks to his visually arresting armor and cool demeanor.
Jeremy Bulloch, the original actor inside the armor, passed away a year ago – but his legacy, including all he brought to Boba Fett, goes on. The new series will carry that legacy forward.
From the triumphant return of Boba Fett to the live-action debut of fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano, the second season of The Mandalorian is a fun, surprising, emotional thrill-ride which has kept fans excited to see how each new weekly chapter will unfold.
In the second season, The Mandalorian and the Child continue their journey, facing enemies and rallying allies as they make their way through a dangerous galaxy in the tumultuous era after the collapse of the Galactic Empire.
Showrunner Jon Favreau serves as executive producer along with Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson, with Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serving as co- executive producers.
Among the other projects announced for Disney+ are Obi-Wan Kenobi, starring Ewan McGregor with Hayden Christensen returning as Darth Vader, as well as Ahsoka, a series featuring the fan favorite character Ahsoka Tano.
