So for two weeks while I was working with Tem and Robert [actor y director], I had no idea I was filming the spin-off. When the crew and cast found out, they died laughing. It was crazy. So yeah, it was wonderful to find out that I was recording The Book of Boba Fett. They call it The Mandalorian 2.5 in a way. So I was not entirely wrong, ”concludes Ming-Na Wen.
