They could just be confusing the (supposed) appearance of Boba Fett in
"The Mandalorian" show or the much-rumoured "Boba Fett" movie. BUT we
certainly do not need a pile of ill-thought-out spin-offs cluttering up
the franchise Disney yet again chases a Star Wars cash-grab. :-(

Boba Fett Series: Mandalorian Spinoff Rumored for Disney+
According to Deadline, Disney and Lucasfilm could be developing
a Boba Fett series for Disney+ - and it could start filming soon,
depending on which sources you listen to. Obviously, most of this
is just speculation, but considering some of the plot elements
featured in the first episode of The Mandalorian, it seems
reasonable to assume everyone's favorite bounty hunter will
finally gets his own spinoff.

Much of the speculations stems from recent talk that a third
season of The Mandalorian has been in pre-production for months
now with series director and executive producer Jon Favreau
stating his desire to begin shooting before the end of 2020.
However, some sources are suggesting the next season will be
pushed to spring 2021 to make way for the aforementioned Boba Fett
series, which would begin filming next week. Temuera Morrison
would in theory reprise his role, which he previously voiced in
the re-edited The Empire Strikes Back as well as portraying Jango
Fett, the man Boba was cloned from, in 2002's Attack of the Clones 
as well as portraying other clones in 2005's Revenge of the Sith.

Lucasfilm is keeping details about either project a secret, though
it was recently announced that Sophie Thatcher would join
The Mandalorian franchise in an unspecified role. Whether that
means the main series or a potential spinoff series set in
The Mandalorian timeline remains to be seen.

As if that weren't enough, Disney+ is also developing a
female-centered Star Wars series with Leslye Headland; and seems
intent on creating a number of offshoots featuring characters from
The Mandalorian, namely Cara Dune, played by Gina Carano.

In other words, we'll just have to wait for the official word.
