The first trailer for The Book of Boba Fett, the latest Star Wars live-action TV show set to premiere in December, has been released by Disney and Lucasfilm.
Star Wars enthusiasts, there appears to be a new face in town — or in a galaxy far, far away. Along with the new teaser for the Disney+ Star Wars spinoff series The Book of Boba Fett came a new cast member, which eagle-eyed fans discovered almost immediately who happens to be Jennifer Beals.
In Season 2 of The Mandalorian, Boba Fett made a victorious comeback to the Star Wars universe. The renowned bounty hunter first debuted in the original trilogy, serving crime lord Jabba the Hutt, and he now takes centre stage after recovering his armour from the Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) in Season 2. Boba Fett is a character from The Mandalorian having his own show.
When can we expect to see The Book of Boba Fett?
The series was first foreshadowed in The Mandalorian Season 2’s post-credits scene, which featured Boba Fett and Fennec Shand assuming Jabba the Hutt’s old throne. The show will begin running weekly on Disney+ on December 29, 2021, and there will be eight episodes in all, according to IMDb.
The cast of The Book of Boba Fett?
Temuera Morrison will resume his role as Boba Fett, who initially debuted as Jango Fett and genetic clones of himself in the Star Wars prequel trilogy before becoming the famed bounty hunter. He voiced Boba Fett in several computer games before making his film debut as Boba Fett in The Mandalorian. Ming-Na Wen also plays Shand, a skilled assassin who has often thwarted the Mandalorian
Other members of the show’s cast are yet to be confirmed.
The spin-off series will follow the eponymous figure as he and Shand traverse the criminal underworld.
Boba and Shand return to Tatooine to seize the territory left by Jabba the Hutt, who hopes to reign in a totally different way.

Is a trailer for the Disney+ series available?
Yes, on November 1, a trailer was released, giving fans a closer look at the series and confirming the show’s premiere date.
There have been attempts to produce a movie centred on fan-favourite bounty hunter Boba Fett since Disney acquired Lucasfilm in 2012. The original idea was for Boba to star in a stand-alone feature picture, but that has since altered to live-action television. Boba Fett will fight to reclaim Jabba the Hutt’s old territory on Tatooine in The Book of Boba Fett, which builds on his supporting role in The Mandalorian season 2.
It includes glimpses of Boba Fett attempting to persuade people to join his cause after assuming Jabba the Hutt’s vacant throne, as well as violent action sequences. The Book of Boba Fett will be released in December, and despite the fact that the publication date is rapidly approaching, Lucasfilm has remained traditionally tight-lipped about plot elements.
The studio began off the marketing campaign with the first Book of Boba Fett poster in late September, laying the groundwork for a major promotional push in the final months of the year.
