Filming To Begin Next Week
Rumours are swirling around today that Disney+ and Lucasfilm will reportedly begin production next week on a Boba Fett series.
While a movie was in development at Lucasfilm for a number of years, those plans were thrown away after Solo bombed spectacularly at the box office.
Now, Deadline is reporting that Disney+ has a Boba Fett miniseries on the way. Details are scarce, but it is believed that Temuera Morrison, who just showed up in last week’s second season premiere of The Mandalorian, will star. No other details have been revealed, but the series is expected to begin filming in November, along with the third season of The Mandalorian, which has yet to be officially greenlit by Disney.
The Boba Fett miniseries was first talked about back in May, though no details were available, other than the fact that the project was in development. Former Disney CEO Bob Iger said –
“The priority [for Star Wars] in the next few years is television.”
Earlier this year Iger hinted at more spin-offs branching out from The Mandalorian. There is –
“more coming from The Mandalorian… including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own directions in terms of series.”
The second season of The Mandalorian is currently streaming on Disney+, while the Obi-Wan Kenobi series is expected to begin production early next year.
