Lucasfilm’s next Star Wars streaming series, The Book of Boba Fett, will kick off later this month and has already generated a considerable amount of buzz. The series will follow Fett attempt to take over the criminal empire once headed by Jabba the Hutt and looks like it’ll have room for plenty of appearances by other interesting characters, old and new. According to a new rumor, one such character might be a fan favorite who could owe Fett a favor.
SWNN (via our good friend at Bespin Bulletin) claims that Jedi-in-training Grogu will make an appearance in The Book of Boba Fett. The origin of the claim stem from t-shirts made for a visual effects crew that worked on the series, seen below. SWNN reported they then checked with sources and were able to confirm Grogu’s appearance in the series.
Grogu joins a long list of characters from The Mandalorian who are rumored to appear in the new series. Grogu’s caretaker, Din Djarrin, his friend Greef Karga, for Imp Miggs Mayfield and the man who once wore Fett’s armor, Cobb Vanth, have been said to be in the show at one time or another. There are also plenty of rumors about other bounty hunters and criminals from the Star Wars Universe popping up in the series, all of whom might look to do more than chew the fat with Fett.
The Book of Boba Fett‘s 7-episode run kicks off December 29th on Disney Plus.
