A Spin-off from The Mandalorian appears to be in the works and speculation is running rampant that it could be about the beloved character Boba Fett.
Earlier this year John Favreau, creator and Executive Producer of The Mandalorian, stated he expected production for the third season of the Disney+ hit show would begin before the end of 2020. However, it seems things may have been shifted around a bit due to recent developments.
A source close to the Spoilerverse has confirmed a Boba Fett mini-series is absolutely in the works for Disney+. However, the details on the production schedules for both The Mandalorian season 3 and the still in-development Boba Fett series is not known.
Just like anything discussed in the rumorverse, until officially announced, take this simply as a rumor. With that, our source is confident in this bit of information so keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks as season 2 of The Mandalorian reveals a larger connection to the Star Wars universe.
For those unaware, Boba Fett is an unaltered clone of the Bounty Hunter Jango Fett (His father). During and following the Clone Wars, Boba honed his skills eventually following in his fathers footsteps in becoming one of the fiercest Bounty Hunters in the Galaxy. Boba played a large role in the capturing of Han Solo, Leia Organa, Chewbacca and C-3P0 on Bespin for the Sith Lord Darth Vader. As a reward he was able to take Captain Solo to Jabba the Hutt to collect on a bounty placed by the gangster from Tattooine. Shortly there after he was accidentally blown into a Sarlacc pit to which it appears, as of Chapter 9 of The Mandalorian, he had survived.
Season 2 of The Mandalorian is playing now and can be found on Disney+
