Disney+ Reveals Title of Boba Fett Special Ahead of Mandalorian Spin-off

As the end of the year approaches so does the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett, and it's been far too long in between live-action Star Wars series.

After a lengthy absence where he was presumed dead, bounty hunter Boba Fett made an unexpected return in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. The return of such a pivotal legacy character had fans going wild, particularly when it was revealed that Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in the prequel movies, was under the helmet.

It therefore seemed like a no-brainer that Boba's successful return would warrant Lucasfilm giving the character his own spin-off series on Disney+.

The Book of Boba Fett will pick up right where that post-credits scene from the end of The Mandalorian season 2 left off. Audiences last saw Boba Fett taking the throne at Jabba's Palace after annihilating Bib Fortuna. With Fennec Shand at his side, the new Disney+ series will tell the story of what Boba does next as the new leader of the Tatooine underworld.

While The Book of Boba Fett won't debut until December 29, audiences won't have to wait that long to see Boba on screen again.

Boba Fett Gets His Own Disney+ Documentary

In a new video promoting the upcoming Disney+ Day celebrations, Disney has revealed the name of the upcoming documentary all about Boba Fett.

The documentary is officially titled Under The Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett. The promo also revealed a few clips from the upcoming documentary featuring the star of the show.

The Legacy of Boba Fett

With so many characters under its belt, it's not unusual for Disney to release special documentaries dedicated to its icons and Boba Fett is definitely part of that category. Now that the world knows the bounty hunter is back, it makes sense that he should get his own documentary right before The Book of Boba Fett launches. 

Marvel Studios: Legends episodes are often released right before a new Marvel series drops on Disney+ to help the audience get up to speed on a storyline or character. It seems like Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett intends to do the same thing for Boba Fett, whose epic journey spans multiple Star Wars films and TV shows. 

Disney has also been known to release special behind-the-scenes making-of documentaries after a show's release like it did with Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian and Marvel Studios: Assembled. While it hasn't been confirmed just yet, it's possible one of these documentary series will be released covering The Book of Boba Fett as well.

Under The Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett will debut on Disney+ on November 12.
