The Book of Boba Fett, a new Star Wars series focused on the iconic bounty hunter, will premiere on Disney+ on Dec 29.

The show was first teased following the conclusion of The Mandalorian season two finale, which offered a sneak peek at the famed bounty hunter sitting on the throne he claimed at the end of that show after taking down Bib Fortuna, the successor to crime lord Jabba the Hutt.

Joining Boba Fett in the series is his mercenary ally, Fennec Shand (played by Ming-Na Wen), as they navigate the underworld of Tatooine.

Temuera Morrison will reprise his role as Boba Fett in the series, which is executively produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson.

Temuera Morrison first voiced Boba Fett in the 2004 re-release of The Empire Strikes Back, before fully portraying him in The Mandalorian.

The series is one of many Star Wars shows coming to the streaming service. Others include Obi-Wan Kenobi, with Ewan McGregor returning as the wisened Jedi and Hayden Christensen reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, as well as Andor, featuring Diego Luna as Cassian Andor from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
