Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett preview
The character of Boba Fett has been around the galaxy far, far away for a long time. He first appeared in the late 70s Star Wars Holiday Special, a TV movie no one really likes to talk about. He then popped up in The Empire Strikes Back, played by Jeremy Bulloch. The character made a powerful impression and quickly became a fan favourite.
Boba Fett seemingly died in Return of the Jedi, but we now know that's not the case. He returned in season 2 of The Mandalorian, this time portrayed by New Zealand's Temuera Morrison. A younger version of the character is also featured in Attack of the Clones and in the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Now, long-time fans have a chance to pay homage to the bounty hunter, as well as (hopefully) learn more about what's in store for Boba Fett in his upcoming spin-off series. Viewers will get to see his on-screen evolution and learn interesting details of how he came to be.
At the same time, Disney will likely use the special as a promotional tool for the upcoming live-action series The Book of Boba Fett, which premieres on 29 December. Besides Morrison, the show also stars Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand.
We know that the action will be set after The Mandalorian season 2. According to the official synopsis, the series will see the 2 "navigating the Galaxy's underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate".
Further details about The Book of Boba Fett have been kept under wraps so far. There's a good chance Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett will offer an extended first look at the upcoming series. We're keeping our fingers crossed. For now, we'll show you the trailer for The Book of Boba Fett.
