Beginning in 1977, George Lucas introduced moviegoers around the world to the wonderful world of Star Wars. Set in a galaxy far, far away, Lucas took fans into a world unlike anything they’ve ever seen that explored the depths of space in an incredibly unique way. This subsequently spurned the birth of an entire franchise that includes a dozen films and a myriad of spin-off projects that have generated billions in revenue and redefined film as we know it. Now another new Star Wars project is in the works, with the first official images for the new series The Book of Boba Fett being officially unveiled this week.
Set to take place after the events of season two of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett is set to explore the background of a character that serves as the outer space equivalent of Robin Hood. The head of an intergalactic organized crime syndicate, Boba Fett is one of the most iconic characters to emerge from the timeless franchise and has been a fan-favorite since his debut decades ago. Now he is set to get his own series, with The Book of Boba Fett set to explore Boba Fett’s rise to success and will detail the painstaking process it took him to get there, providing viewers with an intriguing new perspective on the esteemed character. The first official images for The Book of Boba Fett were unveiled this week, and they showcase the veteran character’s prowess rather well as seen below. Disney+ subscribers can look forward to the release of The Book of Boba Fett in a few short weeks on December 29th.
Few franchises are as celebrated as Star Wars, and in recent years they have built upon that success tremendously. They have utilized the Disney+ platform to reinvigorate demand for the franchise which saw the inception of The Mandalorian last year, one of the most successful new series of the past few years. Now they’ll be attempting to do it again with The Book of Boba Fett, set to debut at the end of next month.
