There's no doubt that Disney is reaping the fruits of Lucasfilm's Star Wars expansion via Disney+ and thanks to the unprecedented success of The Mandalorian, it paved the way for the production company to explore more stories that are set between the events of the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy. The Mandalorian is currently on a season break and it's looking highly unlikely that we'll see Season 3 anytime soon.

Thankfully, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni still have us covered with The Book of Boba Fett which will mark the full-time return of actor Temuera Morrison to the franchise. As it stands, we still don't know what's going to happen in the series which will reportedly serve as a precursor to The Mandalorian Season 3 but director Robert Rodriguez has been hyping the show nonstop.

The Nerdy Basement recently caught up with director Robert Rodriguez and according to him, what we saw from the famed bounty hunter in The Mandalorian Season 2 was just the tip of the iceberg. In fact, he even went as far as downplaying Temuera Morrison's appearance in the hit Disney+ spinoff series, saying "that was nothing" compared to what we'll see in the upcoming project.

He explains: "I've got so much to tell you about that, but I'm out of time. Yeah, I can't say anything about that, sworn to silence. I can say I'm working on it and I can tell you it's gonna blow your mind. You saw him arrive in my episode of The Mandalorian, that was nothing. That was nothing. I can talk it up all I want because I know it's gonna deliver, I know it's gonna overdeliver."

I, for one, am genuinely excited to see The Book of Boba Fett, and I'm totally intrigued as to how it will differ from The Mandalorian. I'm pretty sure the comparisons will be there but I also believe that everyone involved in the show will make the series feel like its own and not just "The Mandalorian Season 2.5" as some reports have previously claimed.

The Book of Boba Fett hits Disney+ this December.
