If the season finale of The Mandalorian left you gasping and asking questions about exactly where the televisual Star Wars universe goes from here…
Officially confirmed on Good Morning America, Jon Favreau has explained that The Book of Boba Fett (which will be executive-produced by Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez) will serve as executive producers on the series, will be a separate series from The Mandalorian and is part of a decision to create an interconnected universe of series on the Disney+ platform (including Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic) leading to a convergence later on – akin to that Marvel did on Netflix with The Defenders.
The show-runner explained the reasons the series wasn’t announced at the Disney event for investors which had revealed other major plans: “We wanted to hold this back because we didn’t want to spoil the surprise during the big Disney announcement of all the shows when Kathleen Kennedy was up there — so they let me keep this one a secret.”
Though there are few details beyond that, it is now known that both Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen will reprise their roles as Boba Fett and Fennec Shand and it appears that some of the story will take place on Tatooine (given the throne-claiming events of the epilogue).
