We are just over a month away from the premiere of The Book of Boba Fett on Disney+, and though we haven’t heard much about the series, that will probably be changing soon. The cover of the upcoming issue of Empire magazine was recently revealed, featuring Boba Fett in all his glory.
While the cover looks awesome, the information and articles teased are even more interesting. The magazine will release on Thursday, November 25 (which also happens to be Thanksgiving Day), and the magazine teases some inside looks at the return of Boba Fett, including images and interviews with Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, Temuera Morrison, and Ming-Na Wen. The article says that they will be “talking the show’s old-school mobster influences, that teaser at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2, the Boba projects that never came to be, the process of creating a fleshed-out character to match that iconic armour, and much more.”
So there will be quite a bit of information coming our way next week about this series, it sounds like, and I’m especially intrigued to see what they have to say about the projects that never did pan out. A Boba Fett project has been rumored for years, so I’m interested in how much Kennedy and others actually talk about those plans and how it led to where we are at now.
But it’s not just a look at The Book of Boba Fett, because it’s also teased that Kennedy and Filoni will be talking about the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka series, and more. We know even less about those shows than this one, and Kennedy and Filoni are the perfect two to be talking about them. I’m extremely curious to see what is said about them, and maybe we’ll actually get a better idea of when exactly they will premiere. I’m not expecting to get much, but I’m glad that they’re talking about the future beyond just this one show, and doing so with the most important people to talk with about it.
I’m just excited that we’ll be getting more information and that it seems the marketing for the series is really about to pick up. I guess that’s not saying a whole lot given how little there’s been so far, but it’ll be good to see more and more promotion as we lead up to the premiere next month!
