Disney has released a trailer for their upcoming 20-min documentary special titled Under the Helmet: The Legacy Of Boba Fett.
This film is a look back at bounty hunter Boba Fett, not only in the original trilogy and especially Return Of The Jedi but how much fans have turned him into an iconic bounty hunter over the years.
It’s also a promotion for the upcoming The Book Of Boba Fett series on Disney+, which is picking up where they left off in The Mandalorian and ROTJ, with Fett taking over the Hutt’s realm on Tatooine.
In the original ROTJ, Fett was played by British actor Jeremy Bulloch. In the prequels, Temuera Morrison played his father Jango, with Daniel Logan as a younger Boba. And now Temuera Morrison is taking over for the upcoming Book Of Boba Fett series.
Here’s the trailer:
