Per Favreau on GMA this morning:
“Boba Fett is already filming, and then we go into production after that with Season 3 of The Mandalorian.”

Hopefully he gets his Vette early on in the series.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

I wonder if this will be more action oriented with Robert Rodriguez on as a producer?

Wow, so RR will be on as a producer. Dude is coming up!

So then this is the show that will premiere next December. I had heard that Mandalorian would also be released in December of 2021. Is that still the case?

Kennedy said at the Investor’s Event that the “next chapter” would premiere December 2021. Favreau clarified that the next chapter would be this. There hasn’t been a definitive answer on when S3 will premiere but Favreau said pretty soon following this. Though some trades are saying both will be Dec 2021, but I think that is confusion from the info between the two announcements.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

I'd prefer not to have both shows on at the same time. Disney might as well drag out the airings and make me subscribe longer

I'm not a fan of the the show's title, but not a big deal. Loving all the Star Wars content.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

Given where they placed him at the end of the season I assume they have an idea for the show beyond Boba Fett looks cool and is popular. That is encouraging.

Edited to add...plus I'll never turn down an opportunity for more Ming-Na Wen.

Maybe with a story arc that ends with his severed head glued on the back of a Womp Rat.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

I was never a Boba Fett fanboy, and if this were any other team making this story, I would be leery. But I think this group has a good idea where to go with this kind of thing.

They should get Lee Tamahori to direct an episode or two.

When most actors her age are struggling to find work or staying in the business, I’m just so happy for Ming Na Wen.

For me she is a big draw for the new show. Very happy for her.

Re: The Book of Boba Fett - Star Wars - coming to Disney+

Not exactly sure why there was some confusion with some people thinking this was going to be season three of The Mandalorian. Season three of Mando had been announced already and the end card seemed to make it clear that it was something separate.

Either way Iím looking forward to this show. Part of me still wouldnít mind if Boba just stayed a semi regular on The Mandalorian instead of getting a solo show.

Season 3 hadn’t been officially announced previously.

Plus, there was some moderately followed YouTube person peddling bullshit rumors about the show and drama about Pedro.

What was the name of the crime syndicate that Maul was running in Solo? If I had to bet money I’d say that seems like a natural direction to take this. They could be rivals, or part of what Boba takes over. There’s still story to be told there, possibly even a return of Emelia Clarke’s character.

That was Crimson Dawn, not sure if it's still around 20 year later, but possible.

Crimson Dawn.

Maul would be dead by this point though.

Lucas’ plans for the ST did have Maul still running the crime organization though, so they could repurpose part of that with Boba.

They should let Josh Trank direct an episode.
