“Jabba ruled with fear. I intend to rule with respect.”
So sayeth the greatest bounty hunter in the galaxy turned criminal underworld boss Boba Fett in the first teaser trailer for the much anticipated The Book of Boba Fett. And this teaser is promising a Disney+ series with serious bite to it.
Watch the first teaser trailer below:
Here’s the official synopsis:
On the sands of Tatooine, bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigate the Galaxy’s underworld and fight for Jabba the Hutt’s old territory.
Following the events of The Mandalorian Season Two, Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) now sits on the throne of Jabba the Hutt’s former empire, now seeking to reign in the scum and villainy that circulates it. But power is a coveted asset, and despite his words to ensure a loyal transfer of power, Boba is also ready for a fight!
Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez serve alongside Kathleen Kennedy as executive producer on the new series, and Rodriguez will bring his unique Texas-western bound directing style to the new series as he is slated to be directing many of the episodes of The Book of Baba Fett.
Morrison looks in his element as the stoic bounty hunter turned gang boss, and he’s getting everyone in line right quick. While he promises to reward loyalty to those who swear their oaths he’s also ready to crush anyone who opposes him. And we get a good look into why you should never go against him.
The new Disney+ series is shaping up to be a totally fun ride and audiences. Not only do we get to dive deeper into the criminal underworld and backhanded dealings of Tatooine, but audiences looking forward to some gunslinging action at the end of the year will be pumped for this new series.
The Book of Baba Fett will arrive on Disney+ on December 29, 2021
