Last week, the internet was on fire after the end-credit sequence following the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian revealed The Book of Boba Fett will be coming to Disney+ in December 2021. What was not clear, however, was whether The Book of Boba Fett is a new spinoff series or perhaps it could be the name of the third season of The Mandalorian which is set to release Christmas of 2021. Today, Disney+ put all that speculation to rest by announcing the The Book of Boba Fett is indeed a separate stand alone series. You can see their Twitter announcement below:
