Monday's Headlines | The Book of Boba Fett Announced on Disney+

There was quite a lot of confusion at the end of Star Wars: The Mandalorian's second season, as the post-credits scene revealed that the Book of Boba Fett would be arriving in December 2021, the same time Mando Season 3. Some folks wondered if those two things were one in the same. Could Boba Fett be taking over as THE Mandalorian in the third season, making the show more of an anthology? A couple of days later we have an official answer. Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett will be its own series.
Disney+ confirmed that the Boba Fett spinoff would be a standalone affair on Monday morning, ahead of an appearance by the executive producers on Good Morning America. The tweet from the streaming service revealed the official logo for the new series, and confirmed that Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau would be executive producing alongside Robert Rodriguez, who directed one of Boba Fett's Mandalorian episodes.
