In the said trailer, Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) assumes a new position of power with mercenary Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) at his side. As we saw in the Season Two finale end-credit sequence for The Mandalorian, Boba Fett unseats Jabba the Hutt, his former boss, as ruler of the underworld on Tatooine.
Boba reveals he’s not a bounty hunter, and he plans to rule the place where Jabba and his nefarious crime syndicate once led with respect. He even urges his constituents to “speak freely.” Of course, it still sounds menacing coming from him, and we don’t see what transpires after he imparts his wish.
There’s a brief battle sequence wherein Fennec and Boba appear to be outnumbered, and another scene featuring Boba and a host of curious creatures of the underworld. Judging by some of the dialogue, Boba hopes to profit off “corporations,” telling those around him “they could make us all rich.”
Here’s the synopsis per Disney:
The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
While Wen first appeared in the freshman season of the uber-popular The Mandalorian, Morrison became a recurring character on Season Two of the series.
However, Morrison’s involvement in the Star Wars universe predates The Mandalorian. In 2002’s Attack of the Clones, he portrays Jango Fett, the father of Boba Fett. Then, in 2005’s Revenge of the Sith, Morrison plays Commander Cody. Over the years, the actor lent his voice to Star Wars video games as both Fetts.
You can watch the trailer below. The Book of Boba Fett streams Wednesday, December 29, only on Disney Plus.
