Fans have been looking forward to seeing the upcoming Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett ever since it was teased at the post-credits scene of the second season finale of The Mandalorian. While the exact plot details are still scarce, we now learn that one key crew member from The Mandalorian will also work on the series.
Film Music Reporter has reported that Oscar and Emmy winner Ludwig Goransson, the composer of The Mandalorian and Black Panther, will return to score The Book of Boba Fett. They also indicated that scoring sessions for the series have already started in recent weeks. Goransson's involvement makes him the latest key member of The Mandalorian who is confirmed to be working on the series.
There is no argument that the score for The Mandalorian has become as iconic and memorable as John Williams' Star Wars theme. We bet that you can hum the theme music of the series or at least play it in your mind. It is exciting to know that Goransson is involved in the making of the series and now we wonder what kind of music is he going to give for the Boba Fett-centric project. It wouldn't be surprising if he would do some sort of remix of the theme that he did for the character in the second season.
There are not many details yet about the plot of The Book of Boba Fett, except that it will center on Temuera Morrison's Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen's Fennec Shand. It is also known to be set in the same timeline as The Mandalorian. Wen herself has even referred to the series as "The Mandalorian 2.5" and there are rumors and speculations that several characters from The Mandalorian will be making an appearance. It has also been reported that Robert Rodriguez, Jon Favreau, Dave Filono, and Bryce Dallas Howard (who all have helmed episodes of The Mandalorian) will also direct episodes of the series. Filming has already finished last June.
The Book of Boba Fett is set to premiere on Disney+ this December.
