The Book of Boba Fett is the next Star Wars show coming to Disney Plus this year. After The Bad Batch and the glorious Star Wars: Visions, this week will be the first live action show since The Mandalorian Season 2.
However, The Book of Boba Fett appears to be sharing a lot of DNA with its animated predecessors. Just like the aforementioned cartoons, Boba Fett's live-action romp will feature some crazy action straight out of fans’ dreams.
The Book of Boba Fett will feature a Rancor riding scene
Reported by StarWarsNews, a source close to the project has leaked a key set piece from the show. While details are sparse, the set piece will involve everyone's favourite Return of the Jedi monster: the Rancor.
According to the website, Boba Fett will, at some point, ride on the back of the ferocious beast. Fett will board the monster during a rampage through a Tatooine city, attempting to tame it. However, the beast will cause a lot of destruction.
“In the scene, Boba Fett will be encountering and quite possibly taming/controlling a rancor. Our source was not completely positive on whether Fett is fighting the beast or controlling it, but Fett is standing on the back of the Rancor’s neck and looks like he’s riding and controlling it, as it tears through a complex/city street on what is likely Tatooine. We consulted with a separate source who confirmed the scene is indeed in the series.”
After the series
The Book of Boba Fett will be the last Disney Plus Star Wars show this year. Debuting on December 29th, the show will consist of six episodes that run into next year. Afterwards, Disney will start their next slate of Star Wars content.
In the lineup, Disney has already finished coming the upcoming Obi-Wan show. Afterwards, work should begin on the upcoming Ahsoka series. Additionally, The Bad Batch Season 2 and The Mandalorian Season 3 are in the works.
