Many bounty hunters have walked the imaginary halls of the Star Wars universe, but none have reached quite the level of varsity fame as Boba Fett. With his heightened presence in Season 2 of The Mandalorian, it was clear that there was a larger story to be told about the famed bounty hunter.
Maybe it's his helmet, or maybe it's his suit (or maybe it's Maybelline), but Boba Fett has undeniably made his mark on the Star Wars world. Everything about him exudes "cool," so naturally, the audience of millions of Star Wars fans wanted to learn more about him—and more importantly, how he somehow escaped his apparent death in the Sarlacc pit in Return of the Jedi.
The end of Season 2 of The Mandalorian clued us in on the creation of The Book of Boba Fett with an end-credits scene, as we're brought back to Jabba's Palace with Bib Fortuna sitting in Jabba's seat. Fennec Shand arrives and takes out a few guards and other attendants while also letting go of one of the prisoners. Following behind her is Fett, who promptly (and thankfully) kills Fortuna because honestly, weren't we all sick of his long nails? After removing Fortuna from Jabba's seat, Fett finally sits down and claims his territory in Jabba's Palace.
