For "Star Wars" fans, the season 2 finale of "The Mandalorian" left jaws on the floor. Without divulging any secrets from the episode -- and there are many -- the chapter "The Rescue" wraps up with an after-credits scene that sets up a previously unannounced series centering on fan favorite character Boba Fett.
After the credits rolled on "The Rescue," show creator Jon Favreau treats fans to the sight of Temuera Morrison's recently resurrected Boba Fett returning to a location first seen on the big screen in "Return of the Jedi," and with him is Ming-Na Wen's master assassin, Fennec Shand.
After the action unfolds, a title card reads: "The Book of Boba Fett Coming December 2021."
Two weeks ago, Lucasfilm announced a limited Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, a "Rogue One" prequel show starring Diego Luna called "Andor," and "The Acolyte," a mystery thriller set long before the previous events in the "Star Wars" saga.
In a sadly ironic twist, the new announcement comes a day after the death of Jeremy Bulloch, who played the bounty hunter, Boba Fett in "The Empire Strikes Back" and "Return of the Jedi."
Disney is the parent company of ABC News and Disney+.
