Fans of the Star Wars-inspired series, The Book of Boba Fett, are in for an exciting update that was just announced this week.
George Lucas’s Star Wars franchise is seeing a renaissance lately–not that Star Wars has ever been on the back burner of pop culture. In 1999, when the first “prequel” debuted, only time would tell whether avid Star Wars fans would embrace the idea or push back from it vehemently.
But almost immediately, it was clear: fans loved the prequels, and not only did the new installments in the film franchise create a new excitement among fans for Star Wars, ushering in a new era of the Rebellion vs. the Resistance, but they also ushered in a new generation of fans–many who were born in the same decade the first prequel debuted.
In recent years, the Star Wars film franchise has continued its renaissance, thanks to the Disney+ streaming platform. Diehard fans are never far away from an opportunity to watch their favorite parts of the Skywalker Saga, The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch, Star Wars Rebels, and the like. And inquisitive new fans are emerging everyday as they too can stream any piece of Star Wars streaming greatness–or simply learn the basics by watching Episodes I through IX straight through.
Disney+ has also delivered several series inspired by the Star Wars franchise, each of which gives more detail and history about the galaxy far, far away and some of its most interesting inhabitants. Those include recent hits like Obi-Wan Kenobi and The Mandalorian.
Series like The Mandalorian were so popular that fans can be sure there’s more to come. But one of the Disney+ series inspired by Star Wars has a more questionable future, and that’s The Book of Boba Fett, the spinoff from the Mando series that followed the mysterious bounty hunter after he (miraculously) escaped from the Sarlacc pit and vowed to take hold of Jabba the Hutt’s throne.
Boba Fett’s story just didn’t seem as popular among many fans, especially when compared to the reviews of other Star Wars-inspired series on Disney+. But an actress from the series recently said something that may point to another season of the bounty hunter’s saga.
During Fan Expo Boston, The Book of Boba Fett actress Ming-Na Wen shared a possibly hopeful update about a second season of the spin-off. She was asked about her career and what she is excited about. Wen said, “the second season of The Book of Boba Fett, I hope!”
Wen continued, saying, “I never count my chickens before they hatch because in this business, you just never know. But, knock on wood, they’ll be announcing that soon.”
While not a confirmation of a second season of The Book of Boba Fett, Wen’s words still serve as a glimmer of hope for fans of the series.
