The Mandalorian may have only returned for Season 2 last week, but development on Disney Plus’ roster of Star Wars shows continues to gather momentum. Ewan McGregor recently confirmed that he’ll be back on set as Obi-Wan Kenobi in March, while Diego Luna was featured in a recent promo for the streaming service, which would indicate that his Cassian Andor solo series isn’t too far away from heading into production either.
The Clone Wars spinoff The Bad Batch is also in the works, while the mystery project hailing from Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland has been rumored to have a heavy martial arts influence. With up to nine TV shows set in a galaxy far, far away, there’s plenty of Star Wars content heading to the Mouse House’s platform, and there’s been speculation that the rumored Boba Fett miniseries could start shooting as early as next month.

While that has yet to be confirmed, we’ve heard from our sources – the same ones that told us Ahsoka Tano would be appearing in The Mandalorian months before Rosario Dawson’s casting was announced – that the show will unravel some of the mysteries surrounding Temuera Morrison’s surprise appearance at the end of last week’s season 2 premiere.
According to our intel, Boba Fett will act as both a prequel and sequel to the events of The Mandalorian and show us the titular bounty hunter surviving and escaping the Sarlacc pit he was thrown into during Return of the Jedi, as well as his adventures on Tatooine after the fall of the Empire. Of course, there’s surely more that’ll be packed in there as well, but that’s what the general plot will entail, we’re told, and it’ll be fascinating to see how the project shapes up given how crazy fans went over the character’s appearance a couple weeks ago in The Mandalorian‘s season 2 opener.
