Look who made it out of the Sarlacc pit.

The Mandalorian spin-off Star Wars fans have all been waiting for is almost here. Boba Fett, played by Temuera Morrison, is the first Star Wars character to get his own live-action show after appearing in Mandalorian Season 2.

Aptly titled, The Book of Boba Fett will explore new and possibly several chapters in the bounty hunter’s life, answering age-old canon questions while diving into his evolution as a character. In addition to Morrison, the series will feature Ming-Na Wen as Fennec, who viewers also met in The Mandalorian. With executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni running the show and director Robert Rodriguez reportedly helming the first three episodes, there’s much to anticipate from this new entry in the Star Wars universe.
