As much hype as there was for The Mandalorian to join the Star Wars ranks, it’s starting to pale in comparison to that for The Book of Boba Fett. One of the most beloved characters of the original trilogy, despite his minimal screen time, Fett returned to Star Wars last fall. (In brutal fashion, we might add, much to fans’ delight.) The new series will feature the bounty hunter at his best (worst?)… It will also be even grittier than the show in which he returned. And, according to its star, it will included some of The Mandalorian’s featured directors.

Temuera Morrison, who’s now played both Jango Fett and Boba, recently spoke about The Book of Boba Fett and its production. Fans of its predecessor series are going to be pleased. In an interview with The Express, Morrison confirmed that Jon Favreau brings his creative vision from The Mandalorian to the new show, as well. “I think we’re blessed in the way Favreau has all that Marvel experience, so we know where those storylines go,” said Morrison.  He also confirmed that Favreau, among others, would return from The Mandalorian to direct in the new series.

Joining Favreau, first and foremost, is Robert Rodriguez. He, of course, directed Fett’s full return to Star Wars in The Mandalorian. That occurred in the chapter “The Tragedy” of Season 2. Also returning is Dave Filoni, creative mastermind behind The Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Bad Batch. Likewise, Bryce Dallas Howard makes her third go-round as a Star Wars director for The Book of Boba Fett.

Howard’s first foray into the galaxy far, far away came in The Mandalorian Season 1 chapter “Sanctuary.” The chapter sadly didn’t truly showcase Howards’ directing talent. To the contrary, it served more as Season 1 filler. Howard came back with a vengeance, however, in Season 2 by directing “The Heiress.” That saw Bo-Katan Kryze return to Star Wars canon in live-action for the first time. It also solidified Howard as a true Star Wars director.

December can’t come soon enough. The Book of Boba Fett will stream exclusively on Disney+.
