Not much is known about the upcoming Star Wars TV show The Book on Boba Fett. With the show just mere weeks away from its release on Disney Plus, fans still have no idea what the show's main storyline is even about.
This is a growing trend with Disney productions. For example, The Mandalorian and Spider-Man: No Way Home both had infamously vague trailers. However, for the upcoming Boba Fett show show, Disney is going one step further.
The Book of Boba Fett trailers only show the start of the story
From the multiple trailers Disney has released for the new Boba Fett show, we know that the show is about the iconic bounty hunter’s return to power. With the death of Jabba the Hutt, the iconic bounty hunter appears to be attempting to rule Tatooine.
While the short trailers have been exciting enough, they’ve mostly left fans in the dark. However, it turns out that this has been entirely on purpose. In fact, the reason why the trailers have been vague is because every shot is from the show’s opening minutes.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director Robert Rodriguez revealed that they've only used shots from the first segment of the show. This is because everything after the first episode’s opening would spoil the show.
"We can’t use the second half of the first episode because it gives so much away,” the director said. "Things turn up you don’t expect, you see things we couldn’t believe we got to do. Every episode has big surprises."
It really is Mandalorian 2.5
The Book of Boba Fett has been described as The Mandalorian 2.5. This means that the show's unique spin-off tale will also continue the overarching narrative of Disney Plus’ pioneer show. However, it's unclear how the spin-off will further the main story.
Multiple rumours have revealed that characters from The Mandalorian will turn up. For example, both Din Djarin and the lovable “Baby Yoda” Grogu are rumoured to appear. Outside of that, details are as vague as can be.
Nevertheless, the upcoming spin-off should be a fun ride for fans of Star Wars’ Disney Plus outings, If not, the upcoming Obi-Wan show should suffice. If only they'd make a Max Reno show. Maybe next time!
