Here’s an interesting surprise. As the first The Mandalorian spin-off, we all assumed that The Book of Boba Fett will also run for the usual eight-episode season. Yet, it turns out that the upcoming Disney+ series will have a shorter run, as the official Star Wars account just revealed it’ll consist of seven episodes once it premieres on December 29th. It’s great to see that the shows aren’t going to be clustered by a specific length and we’ll see how jam-packed the upcoming episodes will be with a shorter runtime. It’s curious though they’d just sneak this information into a tweet. Yet, it certainly got our attention alongside the amazing character posters for Boba and Fennec Shand.
While the trailers offered a tiny glimpse into what the spinoff series has to offer, it’ll be interesting to see Boba Fett’s conflict in his new role. We’ve always associated him as a badass bounty hunter, but never as a true leader. While he can certainly kick-ass, it doesn’t mean he can keep Tatooine’s underbelly at bay. So, while he can take on anyone that wants to steal his throne, he’s likely going to face quite the uphill battle.
