Star Wars: Book of Boba Fett TV Series Premiere Date Set


According to Variety, the Book of Boba Fett has an official release date on Disney+. The Mandalorian spinoff will kick off it’s run on December 29th. This means the series will likely debut the same night as the season finale of Marvel’s Hawkeye, which could make for a very interesting evening on the streaming service’s servers.


The series features Temuera Morrison returning to the role of the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter and Ming-Na Wen reprising her role as Fennec Shand, a character that debuted in season one of the Mandalorian but also appeared in the animated series The Bad Batch. We got a teaser for the series at the end of the Mandalorian season two finale which showed Fett and Shand returning to Tatooine to lay claim to the territory once controlled by Jabba the Hutt.
