Disney+ has released a new featurette for The Book of Boba Fett, highlighting some of the most memorable moments of Star War’s greatest bounty hunter, with scenes from the original trilogy as well as The Mandalorian.
The featurette leans heavily into Return of the Jedi and the Empire Strikes Back, and arrives one week before the release of the series that brings back Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen’s deadly assassin Fennec Shand. Watch:
In the featurette, director and series co-creator Dave Filoni remembers what made Boba Fett so popular when he was a kid, when The Empire Strikes Back hit theaters. In Filoni’s words, Boba was a “lone gunslinger”, a “man with no name” that immediately set himself apart from other secondary Star Wars characters. To Filoni, the fact that you didn’t know Boba’s face or past created an aura of mystery around the bounty hunter, which helped many generations to develop their own ideas of him.
The Book of Boba Fett will premiere on Disney+ on December 29th.
