The Book of Boba Fett had been widely rumored, but was not included among the dozens of shows teased during the Disney Investor Day, leading to speculation that it would not, in fact, be created. But the bonus footage – which showed an unexpected confrontation between Boba Fett and Bib Fortuna – clarified that the show would, indeed, be coming.
However, some outlets have speculated that The Book of Boba Fett may in fact refer to the third season of The Mandalorian, as opposed to a stand-alone series. Disney has yet to confirm either way whether that is the case.
The Mandalorian has been one of Disney’s most successful Star Wars spin-offs, generating widespream critical acclaim and attracting a wide sweep of nominations during the 2020 Emmy Awards. As Disney+’s flagship original show, its third season — in whatever form that will take — has already been confirmed.
In another sign of the show’s cultural impact, it was recently revealed to be one of the inspirations behind the most recent Dior Men Fall 2021 collection, when it was discussed by creative director Kim Jones in an exclusive interview with HYPEBEAST.
