Earlier this month, actor Temuera Morrison revealed that Robert Rodriguez, who directed an episode of The Mandalorian titled “Chapter 14: The Tragedy,” would be returning to direct multiple episodes of “The Book of Boba Fett.” Now, Morrison, who played Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and will play Boba Fett in the upcoming Boba Fett limited series, has shared even more directors who will be involved in the project. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Bryce Dallas Howard who previously worked on some of The Mandalorian episodes, will all return for “The Book of Boba Fett” which is being described as “season 2.5” of The Mandalorian.
During a recent interview with Express.co.uk, Morrison said, “We’ve got some great directors onboard – Robert Rodriguez, Favreau, Bryce [Dallas Howard], Dave Filoni. It’s just a new world! It’s a new world. They like to keep the Star Wars stuff under [lock and] key.”
Not too many details have been reported on the new series. The show will star Temuera Morrison (Boba Fett) and Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand) and will reportedly explore Boba Fett’s missing years, going back to The Empire Strikes Back. There have also been some rumors that a few Mandalorian characters could make a surprise appearance in the series.
Robert Rodriguez, Jon Favreau, and Dave Filoni are executive producers of the show.
“The Book of Boba Fett” has officially wrapped filming and is scheduled to release on Disney+ in December 2021.
