Rumors are circulating that several characters from the Star Wars hit show ‘The Mandalorian’ may be making their way into ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ spin-off series.
So most fans have figured that Ming Na Wen’s Fennec Shand would be returning as Fett’s right-hand woman, but according to Cinelinx, a major Mandalorian player will be featured on the show. According to Jordan Maison of Cinelinx, Pedro Pascal will be returning as THE Mandalorian, or Din Djarin.
This isn’t super surprising, even though ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ is a spin-off, it’s story and events will still affect ‘The Mandalorians’ story. Jon Favreau, the man behind The Mandalorian, has already stated this spin-off is connected to the original show, as it is “the next chapter.”
Maison also heard a report about Carl Weathers returning as Greef Karga and Timothy Olyphant as Vance Cobb. However, he only heard this from one source so we aren’t sure how reputable they are.
The Book of Boba Fett tease happened at the end of The Mandalorian’s second season, where Boba Fett assassinates Bib Fortuna and takes Jabba the Hutt’s throne.
The Book of Boba Fett will premiere in late 2021, which is one of the ten Star Wars projects coming to Disney Plus.
