Boba Fett Is Getting A Spin Off On Disney+

Boba Fett Is Getting A Spin Off On Disney+

There were some serious spoilers hinted at in the post-credits of the final episode of The Mandalorian.

The action-packed finale of The Mandalorian hadn't even come to an end when fans finally got the confirmation they'd long been hoping for - Boba Fett will finally be getting his own spin-off.

Disney decided to make the big reveal during the post-credits of the second season of The Mandalorian's intense last episode, so if you're ok with spoilers it's time to read on.

There's no sign of Pedro Pascal's Mandalorian bounty hunter as we get one last clip at the end of season two. Instead, Boba Fett and Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) are returning to Tatooine and you better believe they're heading right to Jabba's Palace!

Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood) has since taken over from the unscrupulous Jabba, but Fett isn't in much of a mood for pleasantries, annoyed as he is at his last visit to Tatooine where he was eaten by a massive monster and left for dead in the desert.

Opting for a spot of revenge, Fett and Shand - a great name for a cop buddy movie if there was - decide to murder everyone in the palace before the bounty hunter shoots Fortuna right his face, bringing his reign to a somewhat swift end and apparently taking his place as the ruler of Tatooine.

The very final shot sees Fett looking reclining in Fortuna's old throne and enjoying a return that' been literally decades in the making. The fade out then makes it clear: The Book of Boba Fett will come to Disney+ in December 2021. That's right, one whole goddamn year away.

So, some questions.

Will The Book of Boba Fett be coming out as a straight-to Disney+ movie? Or is it going to be played across an eight-episode series similar to The Mandalorian. This we do not know.


There's also the possibility of course that this post-credit scene was simply a way to name the arc for The Mandalorian's third season, but this seems unlikely given how heavily implied it was that Boba was going to be the central figure going forward here. That's not to say The Mandalorian won't play a part in some way of course.

The teaser comes amidst a big week for both Disney and the character of Boba Fett himself. There's a whole heap of Star Wars news to pick through, including new shows and movies that have been confirmed.

There was also the sad news though that Jeremy Bullock, the actor who played the original Fett in the first Star Wars trilogy passed away.

In many ways it's down to his original performance that interest and hype around a potential Boba Fett series is still so high all the way out here in 2020.
