The galaxy will vibrate again in a few days, when Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett opens on Disney +. About to reach the long-awaited premiere date, Lucasfilm has shared a behind-the-scenes video in which some of the cast members have stepped in to talk about the character. You can enjoy The Return of the Legend just above these lines.
Dave Filoni, executive producer and one of those responsible for this spin-off from The Mandalorian, he recalled that in the classic saga, nobody knew the face of Boba Fett, because he always appeared hidden under the Mandalorian helmet. Jon Favreau, the co-creator of the fiction, has acknowledged that Din Djarin’s character in the main series is clearly influenced by the looks of the bounty hunter. “So we felt that introducing Boba Fett was the right fit,” he says.
Action, drama and fun
As for the actor who embodies it, Temuera Morrison (who was also Jango Fett in the prequels), he has anticipated that viewers they will find out what happened to the protagonist, which happened just after Return of the Jedi, where Fett was presumed dead, as he fell into the stomach of the beast Sarlacc. “There is a little bit of fun too, action and drama. It’s going to be exciting for the fans to watch, ”adds Morrison.
Boba Fett’s journey continues in his new position as heir to Jabba the Hutt’s criminal empire, although he did not take the throne for good. When the evil slug was killed by Leia Organa, suffocated by the slave leash, her lieutenant Bib Fortuna rushed to lay her butt on the chair. On that same throne he was later assassinated by Boba Fett himself.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett to premiere its first episode next December 29. The first season is composed of 7 episodes, which will be available on the platform week by week.
