In the original Star Wars trilogy, the character of Boba Fett is a peculiar enigma. Aesthetically the character is one of the coolest looking within the entire franchise, however, the portrayal of the character thus far makes him look like an inept failure as a bounty hunter. In the prequel trilogy, or more correctly in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clones we were introduced to Boba Fetts predecessor/father Jango Fett, who despite being decapitated by Samuel L. Jacksons' Mace Windu proved to be a much more capable bounty hunter and adversary than his successor could dare to dream to be.

Following Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm back in 2012 one of the first rumors to be confirmed was that of a movie focusing on Boba Fett. However, after news surfaced that Josh Trank, who was attached to direct the Boba Fett movie, and Twentieth Century Fox were experiencing "friction" during the production of 2015's Fantastic Four, followed by the movies subsequent failure Trank was removed as director from the Boba Fett movie which was then shelved, indefinitely.

With the success of streaming platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and others, along with a plethora of highly successful shows such as Stranger Things, Game of Thrones (final season notwithstanding), The Walking Dead and more, many studios have been looking to exploit and harness the new medium, which inevitably lead to the announcement of Disney +, of which is set to launch this November 12th.

While Disney + will stream content made by Disney, Pixar, National Geographic and Marvel Studios, it is the platforms Star Wars content that has fans excited, the most promising of which is the new live-action serial The Mandalorian.

Created by Jon Favreau (Iron Man, and live-action remakes of The Jungle Book and The Lion King) The Mandalorian blends abandoned ideas from the aforementioned Boba Fett movie with the heavily developed, though never realized Star Wars: Underworld concept to create an eight-episode science fiction western serial starring Pedro Pascal in the title role with support from familiar faces such as Carl Weathers (Predator, Rocky), Gina Carano (Deadpool), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) and influential filmmaker Werner Herzog.

The Mandalorian will introduce viewers to a new bounty hunter wearing the Mandalorian armor who capitalizes on the power vacuum left by the Empires defeat in Star Wars, Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. The show will also feature new droid bounty hunter IG-11 (voiced by Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi), the return of Rogue One's Death Troopers and plenty of familiar tropes from the original trilogy of Star Wars movies. The first episode of The Mandalorian premiers November 12th on Disney +.
