We're less than a week away from The Book of Boba Fett, the latest installment in the Star Wars universe from Disney+. To celebrate, Disney has released a new trailer for the series, giving fans one last taste of what's to come before their social media likely goes a little quiet over the Christmas weekend. You can see the ad below. The story takes place following Fett's apparent death in Return of the Jedi, and picks up following the shock ending of the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian.
The character, who debuted in the Star Wars Holiday Special, became a fan-favorite due to his cool design, and as a result has been featured in dozens of stories over the years in spite of a fairly minor role (and embarrassing end) in the original Star Wars trilogy.
You can see the teaser below.
Directors for the series include The Mandalorian veterans Jon Favreau, Bryce Dallas Howard, Robert Rodriguez, and Dave Filoni. The filmmakers will be joined by legendary cinematographer Dean Cundey, whose work includes John Carpenter's Escape From New York, The Fog, Halloween, The Thing, and Big Trouble in Little China. he has also worked with Steven Spielberg on projects like Back to the Future, Jurassic Park, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit?. He also directed the direct-to-VHS movie Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves and served as cinematographer on the TV movies Camp Rock and Scooby-Doo!: Curse of the Lake Monster.
You can see the official synopsis below.
