Through two season of The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm has wisely and effectively used multiple directors. To nobody’s surprise, Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau are relying on a similar approach when it comes to their next big streaming series, The Book of Boba Fett. While Robert Rodriguez’s passion for the character has led to a lot of buzz around his participation in the series, Bespin Bulletin correctly reported earlier this year that Bryce Dallas Howard, who previously directed episodes of The Mandalorian, would be directing an episode of The Book of Boba Fett and now, according to the new issue of Empire Magazine, we can add a couple more names to the team of directors for the show. Empire reports that Steph Green and Kevin Tancharoen were both behind the camera for at least one episode each of the upcoming series.
Green has been nominated for both Oscar and Emmy awards, with her turn behind the camera for the HBO series Watchmen being responsible for the latter. She’s also directed episodes of the acclaimed series, The Americans, and one episode of Netflix’s Luke Cage, which gives her something in common with Tancharoen. While fans might best remember Tancharoen for his work as writer and director of the YouTube series Mortal Kombat: Legacy, he also directed one episode of Luke Cage’s Netflix besties show, Iron Fist. Tancharoen has quite a bit of experience in sci-fi and superhero work, with episodes of Supergirl, The Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and, of course, an episode of one of the finest pieces of live-action television ever put to film, Marvel’s Inhumans.
The Book of Boba Fett will see the iconic bounty hunter enter into the criminal underworld after killing Bib Fortuna and taking over the one-time throne of Jabba the Hutt. The show begins streaming on Disney Plus on December 29th and is expected to run for 8 episodes.
