Temuera Morrison – who took on the role of Boba Fett for the first time in The Mandalorian, having previously played the bounty hunter’s DNA donor Jango Fett in the prequel trilogy – has filmed a promo for a spa in his hometown of Roturua, New Zealand, confirming in the process that he’s finished shooting The Book of Boba Fett (h/t Jedi News).
The Disney+ series currently has a release date of December 2021, and looks sure to be the next Mando-themed show to hit the streaming platform. The third season of The Mandalorian will presumably follow some time in 2022, though we have no confirmation on when exactly we can expect to see it debut.
All this is to say, however, that we could actually expect to see LEGO sets based on The Book of Boba Fett arrive on shelves as early as January 2022, alongside the rest of next year’s winter wave – or even in December this year, to launch simultaneously with the show’s first season.
While we had to wait a little longer for any major Mandalorian sets – at least beyond 75254 AT-ST Raider – to hit shelves, and in particular the series’ most iconic ship in 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport, the launch of 75314 The Bad Batch Attack Shuttle alongside the animated Clone Wars spin-off suggests the LEGO Group may be returning to more spoiler-filled tie-in material going forward.
Before then, we’ve got the downsized version of Boba’s Slave I to look forward to, which a Japanese consumer catalogue recently revealed will be based on the second season of The Mandalorian. The model will likely launch on August 1, and includes a grizzled version of the bounty hunter as he appears in the first live-action Star Wars series, and as he’ll likely also appear in The Book of Boba Fett.
