Disney has just released the trailer for The Book of Boba Fett. You can watch the trailer here:
The series - which is set to premiere on 29 December - will hone in on legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett (played by Temuera Morrison) and mercenary Fennec Shand (played by Ming-Na Wen).
The pair will navigate 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 Star Wars adventure series was teased in a surprise end-credit sequence after the finale of The Mandalorian's second season.
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy and Colin Wilson are the executive producers for the series.
Taking to Twitter, one fan wrote: "I'm ready for more action like in Robert Rodriguez's Mandalorian episode. it was so gritty and i loved it."
Another added: "YES, finally some The Book of Boba Fett. I have a really good feeling about that one, it's gonna be a big one for Disney+!"
And a third commented: "Good to see some ambitious series that isn't Marvel, it's been a while."
Others took the opportunity to ask when the third season of Mandalorian would drop or express their disappointment that they thought the clip would be to do with that.
Luckily for those people, filming is underway with Carl Weathers confirming the news that he would be shooting scenes after reprising his role of Greef Karga.
Filming for the third season of the hit Disney+ show has been delayed by several months.
It was originally due to get underway in April before it was pushed to September, with ScreenRant reporting the spinoff show The Book of Boba Fett took precedence and The Mandalorian had to 'wait its turn'.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly back in November, Giancarlo Esposito - who plays Moff Gideon - said: "I have a feeling you'll see more of me next season. More than likely you're going to see a lot of Moff Gideon.
"I can't be sure of that, but it seems as though this iconic journey that they want you to feel it. I think you're going to start to see other storylines start to creep in.
"When we start to realise there's such a deep connection [between the show's storylines and] the rest of the galaxy and what's really happening.
"Maybe you'll get an inkling of what he wants."
