2021 closed out with the long awaited release of the second-ever live-action Star Wars series, The Book of Boba Fett. Starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, the crime world is about to turn on its head with Boba Fett and Fennec Shand in town, who want to shake things up.
And so it begins. For 37 years, the faithful followers of the holy trilogy (I suppose I should call it “the sacred saga” instead since it’s nine movies, but the overzealous purists may protest) have sat and wondered whether or not their beloved would-be badass bounty hunter, Boba Fett, survived literally the stupidest accidental death ever caught on film.
One month remains until the second Star Wars live-action series, The Book of Boba Fett, premieres on Disney+ and the hype is starting to build up. Within the last few days, two new TV spots have been released — the one today teasing just some of the struggle Boba has had to endure following the events of Return of the Jedi — and with it are two new posters; one of Temuera Morrison as Boba, the other of Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand.

Previously on The Mandalorian, the remainder of Jabba the Hutt’s crime syndicate is wiped clean when Boba Fett and Fennec Shand come busting in, killing off Bib Fortuna and his guards, before claiming the space for themselves.

It’s been well documented that I am a fan of the ‘90’s Disney Channel original series, So Weird; a paranormal drama that balances out both the supernatural and tender-hearted moments of a grieving family. But when you’ve watched the same episodes over and over again, you can’t help but ache for something new, but with a similar vibe. To balance out the desire of also wanting to see more stories created by and starring people that look more like you can make for a grand adventure.
