The galaxy far, far away has always had a seedy underbelly. It’s full of space pirates and smugglers. And there are plenty of crime syndicates and their powerful bosses. Star Wars is full of rogues willing to do anything and everything they can to get rich. Now Disney+ is heading straight into one of the franchise’s most compelling worlds to give us an up-close look at how it works. All on Star Wars‘ most important planet. The first trailer for The Book of Boba Fett shows how the famous bounty hunter will work to assume the mantle once held by Jabba the Hutt. But even when you want to rule with respect and not fear, becoming Tatooine’s most powerful figure comes with just as many risks as rewards.
We’d be all in on a show featuring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen working together to become mafia bosses. The fact they’ll be doing it within the world of Star Wars just makes it even better. The Clone Wars, Rebels, and Solo have shown why exploring the specific inner workings of space crime is a worthy endeavor.
In addition to this intriguing trailer, Disney also shared a new poster for the show. As well as an official synopsis:
“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 serve as executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers. And John Bartnicki produces with John Hampian as co-producer.
The Book of Boba Fett debuts on December 29 on Disney+. So don’t upset any bounty hunters-turned-crime lords before then. Or after then too.
