This new "The book of Boba Fett" could be a new TV series or a movie
(TV-movie or cinema) - nobody knows yet.

Pointless making it a spoiler since this new show / movie we don't know
where in the timeline it will be set anyway. Unfortunately it looks
likely to be starring the useless New Zealand "actor" Temuera Morrison.

New Star Wars Announcement After The Mandalorian Season Finale
------------------------------------------------------------ --
Warning: This article contains a MAJOR SPOILER about a New
Star Wars Project

We're not going to tell you how The Mandalorian season finale
ended in this article. But there was a big announcement afterward
(via SuperHeroHype). The only thing spoiled here will be that one
of the characters definitely did not die and is getting a spinoff.
By process of elimination, it may be possible to guess already.
But turn away now if you don't want to know.

Okay. It's Boba Fett. Surely unsurprising. After a post-credits
scene focusing on the popular bounty hunter's fate, a fade to
black and onscreen text announced The Book of Boba Fett coming in
December 2021. Now: is this a movie? A Disney+ series? Maybe even
the top-secret Taika Waititi movie that Disney recently announced?
At this time, all we know is the title. But we can presume Fennec
Shand, now in his debt for saving her life, will also be involved.

Boba Fett spin-offs have been tried by Lucasfilm a few times, but
have never quite made it to production. When Lucasfilm first
announced a live-action TV Series under George Lucas, Fett should
have been part. That one never happened because the technology and
budget never quite worked out. Then, when Star Wars spin-off
movies like Rogue One were first announced, Josh Trank intended to
make a Boba-centric film. That didn't happen after Trank's
difficulties with Fantastic Four became public. At the time,
Michael Fassbender was one name rumored to play the bounty hunter.

But now, Lucasfilm has a live-action Boba Fett that everyone seems
on board with. And while we won't spoil that last scene, it leaves
the character in a prime position for a new story.
