Teased at the end of Friday’s season two finale of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett is an original series coming to Disney+, with a premiere set for next December. Though teased at the end of The Mandalorian‘s latest episode, a Tweet from the official Star Wars Twitter sealed the deal.

The Tweet also confirms Temuera Morrison will return as the titular dome-headed drifter, with Ming-Na Wen reprising her Mandalorian role as Fennec Shand, Boba’s newfound partner in crime. Interestingly, Robert Rodriguez is named alongside Star Wars gurus Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau as an executive producer on the series. Rodriguez directed the sixth episode of the latest Mandalorian season, in which we got to see Fett don his iconic armor and kick some serious tail.
Details are minimal on The Book of Boba Fett, but the tease at the end of The Mandalorian no doubt has fan theories racing through the minds of eager Mando-aficionados and… writers whose first Halloween costume as a cardboard-bound Boba Fett. The mention of Book occurring “within the timeline of The Mandalorian” might seem trivial information, but would indicate that we’re indeed moving forward with the iconic bounty hunter’s post-sarlacc escapades.
