After making their presence felt in The Mandalorian Season 2, the series will bring back Temuera Morrison's Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand for a new galactic adventure in the underworld. The Book of Boba Fett is spearheaded by executive producers Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez, the same director who directed The Mandalorian's Boba Fett-centric episode.
The series picks up right after The Mandalorian Season 2's post-credits scene, where Boba Fett successfully takes over Jabba's Palace on Tatooine after killing Bib Fortuna and his allies. In a previous interview, Favreau teased that the legendary bounty hunter would struggle to replace Jabba's underworld reign, with the producer pointing out that Fett is not experienced when it comes to running a crime syndicate.
The first trailer gave a preview of Fett's adjustment to his newfound leadership, with it showing footage of him and Shand going up against other mercenaries.
Now, a new promo for the underworld-heavy Star Wars series has been unveiled.
New Book of Boba Fett Footage Released
Star Wars revealed a brand new TV spot for The Book of Boba Fett, showcasing fresh looks at the titular bounty hunter in action alongside Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand.
The 30-second footage shows hard-hitting action, a glimpse at Tatooine, and the infamous Slave 1 ship.
The promo can be seen below:
Boba Fett's Power Struggle (Explained)
Boba Fett's reintroduction in the latest TV spot further cements the idea that the galaxy's most feared bounty hunter will experience complications while leading the underworld.
The teaser's opening shot features Fennec Shand being captured by an unknown assailant. It is unknown why Shand, a veteran bounty hunter, was apprehended, but it's safe to assume that this was part of Fett's plan.
It's possible that Shand did it on purpose in order to infiltrate the organization from the inside, thus leading to an easy takeover. New footage of Fett riding a speeder was also revealed, which could be part of the character's strategy to save his partner in crime.
On the flip side, a closer inspection suggests that it's the other way around, with Shand capturing the fugitive. This could hint that the galactic mercenary is bringing her prisoner to Fett for a potential round of brutal punishments.
Meanwhile, Fett is also shown to be leading a council meeting, and it's apparent that not everyone present is a fan of his new rules. It will be interesting to find out how other mercenaries within the underworld will react to his leadership.
The Book of Boba Fett is set to premiere on Disney+ on December 29, 2021.
