Boba Fett first appeared in live-action in “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” and has become as mysterious a character as Darth Vader.
Due to his iconic worn armor and his secret identity hidden by the Mandalorian helmet, Fett has been elevated to the greatest bounty hunter in the saga.
And, more than 40 years after the film’s release, Disney revealed that the anti-hero is almost very different from the official version.
To promote the arrival of ‘The Book of Boba Fett’, the studio released character concept art with different designs.
The changes range from the shape and color of the helmet and armor to its accessories, but still keeping the style of the Mandalorian set.
Remember that “The Book of Boba Fett” premieres December 29 on Disney +.
Check out the trailer:
The first season will have eight episodes:
Episode 1: The Champion
Episode 2: The Assassin
Episode 3: The Syndicate
Episode 4: The Battlefield
Episode 5: Homeworld
Episode 6: The Warlord
Episode 7: The Confrontation
Episode 8: The Hunter
Some titles hint at the plot, like “The Syndicate,” which is expected to follow Fett as the new Underworld King on Tatooine.
Rumors have also hinted that the plot might give Mandalore more focus, as episode five: “The Homeworld” suggests.
Another interesting detail is that the first episode will be counted as Chapter 17, i.e. it will be a direct continuation of the 2nd season of ‘The Mandalorian’, serving as a sort of season 2.5. from the series with Pedro Pascal.
The series will also explore Fett’s dominance of the criminal underworld after assassinating Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood) and taking over Tatooine.
Fortuna was Jabba the Hutt’s staunch servant and took office after the leader’s death in Return of the Jedi.
“‘The Book of Boba Fett’, a new original series starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez, set in the same timeline as ‘The Mandalorian’. The premiere takes place at Disney + in 2021.
