    The second season finale of Star Wars: The Mandalorian has arrived, and now that it's out, we know that the third rumored spin-off, starring Boba Fett, is a real thing, and it will be coming to Disney+ about a year from now.





    We already knew about two spin-offs to The Mandalorian, Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic, but the absence of the Boba Fett one - which had been reported on by Deadline, unlike the other two - was rather conspicuous. Well, people who stayed up late to tune in to the latest episode were among the first to learn that Lucasfilm were just waiting for the right moment to formally reveal the third miniseries, and it had a grander announcement than a presentation for Disney investors.



    Spoilers for The Mandalorian Chapter 16 ahead.



    The latest episode of The Mandalorian was a first in a couple of ways, but the last of these firsts is what's particularly interesting. The episode featured a mid-credits scene showcasing a short action sequence involving Boba Fett and Fennec Shand at Jabba's Palace, before ending with the following message: The Book of Boba Fett - Coming December 2021. (Even with that spoiler warning, I'm purposefully keeping the details scarce on this one - it's worth seeing it play out.)



    While the medium that The Book of Boba Fett will be developed for was not formally announced with the stinger, it's almost certainly the live-action spin-off that's said to be filming right now. The aforementioned report from Deadline indicated that The Mandalorian would film after about a month after work on Boba Fett started. (And yes, both shows are distinctive projects - they are not one and the same.)



    If both shows are airing at the end of 2021, then that implies that The Book of Boba Fett is going to air for a three-to-four-episode run to pave the way for The Mandalorian Season 3 immediately afterward. That's, of course, presuming that the show begins at the start of December and The Mandalorian begins airing a week after it wraps. There's an off-chance that both shows could air concurrently, and it may also be possible that The Book of Boba Fett is a Disney+-exclusive feature film rather than a miniseries.



    The title potentially hints at a possible anthology format, or at least that the show will specifically detail Boba Fett's personal history (most likely focusing on the events leading up to The Mandalorian and what happens immediately afterward). In any case, we'll be seeing much more of Temuera Morrison's Boba Fett, and possibly Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand, in about a year or so.

    Long live the king.



    The first two seasons of The Mandalorian are available to stream on Disney+. A third season has been ordered for the streaming service and will arrive in time for Christmas 2021, with the spin-offs The Book of Boba FettAhsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic all in development.

    +1. That post-credits teaser was like the cherry on top of an already delicious cake! Pretty much straight out of legends too, IIRC. This is the way!

    Yep

    Which was what confused me as I had seen the deadline report on a Boba Fett show but then nothing at the investors call.

    Not that I’m complaining a Boba & Fennec show has loads of possibilities.

    It was a smart move not announcing this. Since this episode was so close, the surprise was much more welcome than if they said it last week or whenever it was.

    This only shot is ridiculously insane. The colours, the light, the disposition...
    Is like a vintage book cover, an album cover, a dream, an animation shot, a powerful family photo, a detailed illustration, a sublime concep art...

    And I thought we were already loaded after all the other projects that were announced. And now we're getting this too. Not that I'm complaining. Not at all. :)

    Looking forward to see The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka. Regarding Rangers of the New Republic, I am not sure because since I watched the sequel trilogy, I think we all know what happened to the New Republic in The Force Awakens. I mean, I like to see more of the New Republic but
    it gets destroyed by The First Order
    and this puts me off a little bit. However I would like to see the Battle of Jakku, if it is possible.
    If I watch The Mandalorian and other spin off series by pretenting not to know about the sequel trilogy, then it's another story. Because I think the New Republic has a lot of potential but then there is EP7.

    I'm excited to learn more about the New Republic even considering what happens. There's lots of story potential there.

    Either way, it's neat how The Mandalorian has spawned sort of its own sub-franchise.

    Yeah, I feel a similar way about it. Just knowing the Sequels exist and what an incoherent mess the trilogy is slightly hinders my excitement, especially regarding the NR & Luke's Jedi Order - I'm not a fan of how they were handled in the ST. But we'll see how it goes.
