It's official: Boba Fett and Fennec Shand will be off on a new adventure in a new original series The Book of Boba Fett. In addition to that, The Mandalorian director Robert Rodriguez could direct the upcoming Star Wars show.

The announcement comes from the official Star Wars Twitter account, which shared the show's logo. In addition to that, new details about The Book of Boba. Check it out below.

"The Book of Boba Fett, a new Original Series, starring Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen and executive produced by Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez, set within the timeline of The Mandalorian, is coming to @DisneyPlus Dec. 2021," the caption reads.

This is excellent news for fans who were hoping that Boba will be getting his own series that can efficiently show off just how bad-ass he could be. In addition to that, we're loving the idea that Fennec will be joining the former bounty hunter.

The Book of Boba Fett was teased in the final episode of The Mandalorian Season 2 where the post-credits scene showed Boba and Fennec heading for Jabba the Hutt's palace and unceremoniously killing Bib Fortuna. If the sequence is a clue, there's a big chance that Boba will be going after everyone who did him wrong in the original Star Wars film trilogy.

But what are the chances that Rodriguez will be brought in to do more than just serve as an executive producer? Fans believe that the Alita: Battle Angel director was chosen to take on the project as he could serve as the director for most of the episodes. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

The Book of Boba Fett will star Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. The new show will premiere on Disney+ in December 2021.
