Morrison gave exclusive express.co.uk the first details of The Book of Boba Fett, which will be released on the Disney streaming service in December.
Boba Fett’s book was first announced in a post-credits scene after the final episode of The Mandalorian season 2. During the scene, Boba arrived at Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine and claimed the throne for himself, and teased more. for the ruthless fighter.
When asked what plot details he could give us about the new show, Morrison laughed, “You know the rules, nothing! Nothing!”
The Kiwi actor – who promoted his new science fiction epic Occupation: Rainfall – continued: “It’s in The Mandalorian timeline, so I think we should go back and see it.
“It’s a duo thing. We have Ming-Na Wen there – she plays the master assassin Fennec Shan.”
