The Mandalorian Season 2 has now come to an end and the finale revealed that there’s a new spinoff show coming in December 2021 – The Book Of Boba Fett. There have been some rumours that this could actually be The Mandalorian Season 3, and I just wanted to reassure you that it is not going to be that.
No, Boba Fett is not going to be replacing Din Djarin in The Mandalorian – as opposed to what some YouTubers might be saying out there. Moreover, I’ve been informed by sources close to the project that not only will The Book Of Boba Fett be a limited series, separate from The Mandalorian, but it’ll also only be four episodes long.
The Book Of Boba Fett is NOT The Mandalorian Season 3
The Mandalorian Seasons 1 and 2 have been eight episodes each, and that’s going to be the norm for the future Star Wars shows. However, The Book Of Boba Fett is going to be their first limited Star Wars series, and there could be more of these sorts of shows coming to Disney Plus in the future. I’ve also been informed that they could be doing something similar with some future Marvel Studios shows, which sounds interesting.
One of the shows I’ve been told that Marvel Studios might do as a limited series is the Daredevil TV series, which is reportedly going to see Charlie Cox return as Matt Murdock. I was previously told that it was going to be a Daredevil movie. However, it’s now looking like it could actually be a limited series, which also sounds cool to me.
The Book Of Boba Fett will be four episodes long
There are also going to be a few more limited Star Wars live-action series like The Book Of Boba Fett to come in the future. I was also told that the limited series is very close to wrapping production, and as soon as that’s done, they’ll get working on The Mandalorian Season 3. Jon Favreau is apparently very keen on getting these shows shots as swiftly as possible, and they can do that thanks to the advanced technology they’re using to film these Star Wars shows.
They’re basically all filmed inside and use very high definition screens as their backdrops. If you’ve seen The Mandalorian, then you would never know that it was all filmed inside. It’s very exciting and this way of filming is very much going to be the future, and Disney and Lucasfilm are at the forefront of that.
