Star Wars Releases First Clip From Boba Fett Disney+ Show

Star Wars Book of Boba Fett

Star Wars fans are eagerly awaiting December 29, as it marks the first live-action Star Wars content in over a year with The Book of Boba Fett. The show, which was set at the end of The Mandalorian's second season, sees Temuera Morrison's Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand return to the spotlight as they attempt to control the Tatooine underworld.

At the moment, there is fairly little known about the show. It took a while for a trailer to land, and even when it did, the details were still relatively unclear.

Many behind the scenes are rumored to have referred to the show as The Mandalorian season 2.5––which only makes the matter more confusing. While it seems the show will focus on Boba Fett ruling over Tatooine with more respect, those whispers seem to indicate a wider story that intersects with Pedro Pascal's Mando.

While fans wait for more answers, Disney has released a new clip from the show that sees Boba and Fennec making the early rounds.

Boba and Fennec Take a Walk

People revealed an exclusive clip from The Book of Boba Fett that showcases Temura Morrison's Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand.

In the clip, Boba spoke about how "Jabba had many vessels" and warned Fennec that "[they] have a lot of ground to cover if [they] are to keep this Empire intact."

Fennec curtly responds that "[she] can make the rounds without [him]," while pointing out that "Jabba rarely left his chambers."

Clearly, Boba wants to be a different kind of ruler, as he made clear by sternly declaring how he "intend[s] to rule with respect," unlike Jabba, who "ruled with fear."

Fennec was able to squeeze in one bit of advice before the clip ends, noting that "in difficult times, fear is a sure bet."

The full clip can be watched below:


The All-Respecting Boba Fett

Boba Fett fans are probably grinning from ear to ear. Once upon a time, the character was all but a background player, and now he's already made a triumphant return in The Mandalorian, with his solo project weeks away.

But what will the effects of the show be? Will Boba's probable rule over Tatooine be an important part of stories to come in the Star Wars Universe?

With all of the series Lucasfilm has in the works, they've made it clear that the studio is interested in the connected approach which works so well for Marvel. Not only that, but building towards bigger event-type pieces––plans which likely had a wrench thrown in them when Rangers of the New Republic was scrapped.

Given Boba Fett's status with fans across the world, there's no doubt that he will be a centerpiece of the franchise for years to come.

The Book of Boba Fett airs exclusively on Disney+ on December 29.
