The first official Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett trailer has dropped. Here’s what we now know …
Star Wars fans have clamored for Boba Fett to get his moment in the spotlight for nearly 40 years. And with the upcoming Disney+ series Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, the infamous bounty hunter’s moment has finally arrived.
Following his mind-blowing appearance in the second season of The Mandalorian, Boba gets his own show-ba on Disney+. Disney dropped the first trailer for The Book of Boba Fett this week, and it’s a real doozy.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett Trailer | Streaming on Disney+ Starting Dec. 29
Before the all-new original series begins airing on Dec. 29, here are five fast facts we learned from the first trailer for Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett.
1. Jabba the Hut is Dead
The tagline of The Book of Boba Fett speaks volumes: “Every galaxy has an underworld.” You can expect this series to explore the seedier side of the Outer Rim as Boba Fett looks to claim the throne once held by everyone’s favorite giant space slug.
Unlike Jabba, who ruled with an iron first, Boba—played by Temuera Morrison—intends “to rule with respect.” We’ll see how long that lasts. Either way, The Book of Boba Fett looks like it’ll be filled with plenty of intrigue.
2. Fennec Shand Plays a Big Role in The Book of Boba Fett
Boba won’t be alone on Tatooine. He’ll be joined once again by his partner Fennec Shand, played by Ming-Na Wen.
In one particularly tense scene, Boba’s authority is challenged directly. Shand, standing at his right with coolness, warns that Jabba would have fed back-talkers to his menagerie. Clearly, she hasn’t lost a step.
3. There’s a Whole Host of Creatures Afoot
Looking through the first trailer for The Book of Boba Fett, you’ll spy several familiar forms and faces.
Among the creatures that pop up in the trailer are a B’omarr monk, a rather regal looking Ithorian, and some scaly Trandoshans. And it wouldn’t be a trip back to Tatooine without an appearance from the Tusken Raiders. You can bet there’s more where that came from, too.
4. Boba Still Has a Mean Streak
It wouldn’t be a show about your favorite intergalactic bounty hunter without lots and lots of action. At one point, Boba can be heard saying that he’s not a bounty hunter anymore, but he sure demonstrates the skills (and viciousness) of one in a few short snaps of combat.
And what about that helmet full of coins? I guess we’ll have to see.
5. No Sign of the Sarlacc
Back in 1983, Boba Fett was dealt a defeat at the hands of Luke Skywalker with the help of a ravenous Sarlacc. For years, stories have told of Boba’s escape from the Dune Sea of Tatooine—and we may finally get to see how it played out. Open wide!
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett begins streaming on Disney+ starting Dec. 29. Plenty of time to binge The Mandalorian again and book yourself a trip on the Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser.
