Fans are finally getting there wish for more Boba Fett content and it looks like it will be an exciting ride.
The second season of The Mandalorian brought back the fan favorite notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett, which left long time Star Wars fan ecstatic. Fett not only survived the sarlacc pit, but fans were finally able to see the impressive skills of the bounty hunter in action as he demolished a group of storm troopers. Boba reclaimed his armor which revealed that his father, Jango, and by extension he himself are in fact Mandalorians and then assisted Din in his quest to rescue Grogu.
Boba Fett has returned and fans have been begging for more. Disney has listened and in the post credit scene of the season two finale they answered. Boba and Fennec Shand, the assassin he saved during the first season of The Mandalorian, return to Tatooine and more specifically Jabba the Hutt’s palace.
With Jabba dead a new leader seems to have taken over and it is none other than Bib Fortuna, one of Jabba’s old employees. Fennec and Boba storm the palace killing nearly everyone in sight. Fortuna is shocked that Boba is alive and attempts to welcome him back, but Boba has other plans. After killing Fortuna, Boba takes his place on Jabba’s throne with Fennec beside him. The duo seems primed to take over the criminal underworld on Tatooine and beyond.
