What They’re Saying:

  • Charles Soule, Writer: “The main story that we’re dealing with is a Boba Fett-focused crime epic, that involves Boba Fett going up against some of the heaviest hitters in the galaxy. It’s Jabba the Hutt. It’s Black Sun. It’s Darth Vader. And a bunch of others — factions and so on — that I think will be really interesting for the fans,” says Soule. “It’s basically Boba Fett, by himself, against all of these people.”

Fett recently appeared in the second season of the hit Disney+ series, The Mandalorian, and a spin-off series, The Book of Boba Fett is due to arrive in December.
