New Star Wars Announcement After The Mandalorian Season Finale [SPOILER]

Warning: This article contains a MAJOR SPOILER about a New Star Wars Project

We’re not going to tell you how The Mandalorian season finale ended in this article. But there was a big announcement afterward. The only thing spoiled here will be that one of the characters definitely did not die and is getting a spinoff. By process of elimination, it may be possible to guess already. But turn away now if you don’t want to know.

Okay. It’s Boba Fett. Surely unsurprising. After a post-credits scene focusing on the popular bounty hunter’s fate, a fade to black and onscreen text announced The Book of Boba Fett coming in December 2021. Now: is this a movie? A Disney+ series? Maybe even the top-secret Taika Waititi movie that Disney recently announced? At this time, all we know is the title. But we can presume Fennec Shand, now in his debt for saving her life, will also be involved.

Boba Fett spin-offs have been tried by Lucasfilm a few times, but have never quite made it to production. When Lucasfilm first announced a live-action TV Series under George Lucas, Fett should have been part. That one never happened because the technology and budget never quite worked out. Then, when Star Wars spin-off movies like Rogue One were first announced, Josh Trank intended to make a Boba-centric film. That didn’t happen after Trank’s difficulties with Fantastic Four became public. At the time, Michael Fassbender was one name rumored to play the bounty hunter.

But now, Lucasfilm has a live-action Boba Fett that everyone seems on board with. And while we won’t spoil that last scene, it leaves the character in a prime position for a new story.

Are you excited for a Boba Fett spin-off, at last? Let us know what you’d like to see in comments.
