‘The Book of Boba Fett'
Boba Fett is back in his own Star Wars 8 Episode Show. He & Fennec Shand have taken over the old Jabba's Palace (off the hands of Bib Fortuna) and look set to establish rule over Tatooine as a Crime Lord.
Staring Temuera Morrisson and Ming-Na Wen, the series is the first Star Wars material to really dig into the story of Boba Fett – from cult character in The Empire Strikes Back to starring character in a Mandalorian spin-off is quite the leap!
