Disney+ has debuted an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette for Lucasfilm’s forthcoming The Mandalorian spin-off The Book of Boba Fett, featuring commentaries from Temuera Morrison, Ming-Na Wen, Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez. The new live-action Star Wars series is set to be released next Wednesday, December 29.
The Book of Boba Fett featurette, which you can check out below, recounts the titular character’s history within the Star Wars universe from his mysterious introduction in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back to his long-awaited return in the second season of The Mandalorian. It also teases what happened to Fett throughout the years following the events of Return of the Jedi.

The Book of Boba Fett sees the return of Temuera Morrison as he reprises his fan-favorite space bounty hunter role as Boba Fett, who was last seen by Star Wars fans during the post-credits scene of the second season finale of The Mandalorian. The series will be executive produced by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, who are reportedly trying to adopt Marvel Studios’ successful MCU format.
“The series is described as a thrilling Star Wars adventure,” reads the logline. “It 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.”
The Mandalorian spin-off is executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, Colin Wilson, Karen Gilchrist, and Carrie Beck, with John Bartnicki, and John Hampian set as producers.

Lucasfilm had previously attempted to produce Boba Fett spinoffs before the character appeared in The Mandalorian. However, none of the planned spinoffs took off and made it to production. This includes a live-action TV series from George Lucas and a Boba-centric film from Fantastic Four director Josh Trank, which both didn’t move forward with their productions.
