As the world knows by now, after the credits rolled for The finale of The Mandalorian season two, fans were given a post-credits tease. The tease, we saw Boba Fett and Fennec Shand arrive at Jabba’s Palace on Tatooine to assassinate an older Bib Fortuna with Boba Fett taking over the throne. The scene closed with two title cards The Book of Boba Fett and Coming December 2021.
Since the episode debuted fans have been speculating whether or not the book of Boba Fett is a spin off to The Mandalorian or if it is taking over season three. Silly rumors have been making their way across the Internet regarding series star Pedro Pascal involvement on the series. Well, thanks to Jon Favreau we finally have some clarification.
As teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the season finale of The Mandalorian, the legendary bounty hunter’s journey will continue in The Book of Boba Fett. Favreau, executive producer of The Mandalorian, confirmed today on Good Morning America that the new series is currently in production and will arrive December 2021, only on Disney+.
