In today’s Star Wars news update, we discuss new details revealed by Temuera Morrison for the upcoming Mandalorian spin-off, The Book of Boba Fett. He spoke about how the series will show us important flashbacks to what happened to Boba after The Empire Strikes Back, even before the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi, before we saw him in the Mandalorian Season 2 when he helped Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) save Grogu. He was joined by Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand. We also talk about Giancarlo Esposito who talked recently about Jon Favreau and what is in store for his character- Moff Gideon and what mysteries need answering. Notably, his connection to the Jedi, the Darksaber, how he relates to the legacy of Darth Vader, whether he is connected to Grand Admiral Thrawn, why he wants Baby Yoda and so on!
Finally, we speak about big casting news for the Rogue One spin-off : the Cassian Andor series. It’s now confirmed that we will see Orson Krennic and Saw Gerrera. I also explore some concept art for the Rise of Skywalker that was shared by Pablo Hidalgo. We have so many amazing Star Wars, Lucasfilm and Disney+ projects to look forward to as announced by Kathleen Kennedy. Dave Filoni is leading the way in the path of George Lucas for what will be an incredible future for the franchise.
