Boba Fett is something of an enigma. Originally a cameo appearance in the animated section of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, he then became a mail-in figure in the toy range ahead of his appearance in The Empire Strikes Back. His arc was wrapped up just a few moments of screen time later with his accidental dispatching into the Sarlaac in Return Of The Jedi.

Boba Fett’s popularity did not wane, and even an appearance as a child in Attack Of The Clones did nothing to change that.

A character who has maybe ten lines of dialogue and mere minutes of screen time across Episodes I to VI still holds fan imagination. Now we will finally learn more about him in live-action form with The Book Of Boba Fett on Disney+. A recent interview on Rotten Tomatoes with Temuera Morrison confirms streaming series will fill in Boba Fett’s backstory.

This will include what Boba Fett was up to during the time leading up to The Empire Strikes Back, between that and Return of the Jedi, and afterward:

“We’re going to see his past and where he’s been since The Empire Strikes Back. Somebody pointed out he is been kind of stuck in this one place, and now’s the time to actually go back in time and check out his journey and find out more about him.

But yeah, that was the advantage for me, was that we hadn’t seen him do much. And along with Robert Rodriguez as director, we were able to sort of introduce him in a dynamic way, bring him back in a dynamic way alongside the Mandalorian. It was just an honor to be asked back.”

One thing Morrison does understand from his time on the Star Wars prequels is pressure, and that The Mandalorian has now just increased that:

“I just hope I meet the expectations, because you can somehow kind of feel those things… definitely on The Book of Boba, you can get more of a sense and a feeling for if it’s working or not. So I think with being involved with that last series of The Mandalorian and having a reentry, it has created a little bit more expectation. But yeah, I feel good. We’ve done some good work.”

Robert Rodriguez, Jon Favreau, and Dave Filoni executive produce The Book Of Boba Fett which arrives in December on the Disney+ streaming service.
