Highlights From the Trailer for ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

We are just a few days away from the release of the much anticipated series ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ on Disney+. The first episode will be available for streaming on December 29! Kristin Baver shared some of the highlights of the trailer with StarWars.com:

Lucasfilm and Disney+ debuted an action-packed trailer and key art for The Book of Boba Fett, the new live-action series launching on December 29.

Boba Fett and Fennec Shand

First teased in a surprise end-credit sequence following the Season 2 finale of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett continues the adventures of Boba and Fennec Shand as they navigate the underworld and stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.

Now with our first glimpse at the series, we find Boba Fett looking to make his mark through unity and respect instead of sheer domination. Watch the thrilling new trailer for yourself below, then read on for our favorite moments.

1. Return to Jabba’s palace.

With a B’omarr monk skittering across the sand, we’re transported back to Tatooine and the palace where Jabba the Hutt once reigned. But it quickly becomes clear that things have changed since the days when the slimy crime boss was collecting carbonite scoundrels as wall décor and sending anyone who crossed him into the pit with his pet rancor.

2. “Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.”

An empty throne, a tense standoff, and Boba Fett showing he isn’t hiding behind his dented helmet punctuate this simple creed. And with a sideways glance, it seems his partner, the fearless Fennec Shand, is ready for wherever this new adventure takes them.

3. Friends or enemies?

From an Ithorian of some authority to a table of former Hutt allies, the trailer is filled with familiar alien species among the denizens of the underworld. But who among this hive of scum and villainy will prove to be friends or foes?

4. That score.

Building on the music that reintroduced the bounty hunter in The Mandalorian, the stringed composition playing throughout the trailer is gritty with a sense of urgency.

5. Surrounded!

Boba and Fennec are outnumbered, but that doesn’t mean the two scrappy survivors are outmatched. Not by a long shot. Just one look at Temuera Morrison’s wide-eyed rage and you know whoever picked that fight with Boba is in trouble now.

6. “If you had spoken such insolence to Jabba, he’d have fed you to his menagerie.”

It’s a great line spoken with precision calm by Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand. A statement or a threat? We’ll have to watch the series to find out…

The Book of Boba Fett stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
