One of this year’s most anticipated Disney+ series is “Star Wars: The Book Of Boba Fett”, which was teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the season finale of the second season of “The Mandalorian”.
The Book of Boba Fett will be set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and star Temuera Morrison as the titular bounty hunter, along with Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. Recently it was revealed that filming on the upcoming show had been completed.
During a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes, Star Wars actor Temuera Morrison, was asked about his upcoming “Star Wars: The Book Of Boba Fett” Disney+, to which he replied:
My lips are sealed. I can’t say too much about that!
However, when asked about his appearance in the second season of “The Mandalorian”, he did let slip he will be working with director Robert Rodriguez again on the new “Boba Fett” series and give a hint about where the show might go:
Well, we can’t say too much, but we’re going to see his past and where he’s been since The Empire Strikes Back. Somebody pointed out he’s been kind of stuck in this one place, and now’s the time to actually go back in time and check out his journey and find out more about him.
But yeah, that was the advantage for me, was that we hadn’t seen him do much. And along with Robert Rodriguez as director, we were able to sort of introduce him in a dynamic way, bring him back in a dynamic way alongside the Mandalorian. It was just an honor to be asked back.
Hey, it could have gone anywhere. It’s a new time, and I think they’re looking for fresh faces. And of course, again, it was either Dave Filoni or Jon Favreau probably meeting, and then had a few discussions. I was just kind of quietly thrilled when I did do the meeting. I saw a couple of concept photos on the wall and there was a guy that looked very, very similar to me. And I kept saying, “Is that me? Yeah, it must be me. Yeah, it is me!”
And then of course, after having a good meeting with these guys and they outlined a few things, it was just wonderful. Again, it was nice to work with these people, and it was just a great opportunity. They brought Robert back in to direct a few more. There’s some wonderful directors involved. It’s hard work now, what we do now, a whole new system, with COVID in place, health and safety regulations.
Robert Rodriguez directed “Chapter 14” of “The Mandalorian”, which introduced us to a much older Boba Fett, and he has previously directed “Alita: Battle Angel”, “Sin City”, “From Dusk till Dawn” and the Mexico Trilogy, which includes “Desperado” and “Once Upon a Time in Mexico”.
It was announced last year that Robert Rodriguez, will be joining Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as an executive producer on the show.
“Star Wars: The Book Of Boba Fett” is coming to Disney+ in December 2021.
