Plot

'The Book of Boba Fett' follows the story of bounty hunter Boba Fett, the cloned son of Jango Fett. Jango Fett is the original bounty hunter that the Stormtroopers who wiped out the Jedi were cloned from. Boba Fett took up his father's helmet and Mandalorian armor to become a bounty hunter in his own right, before falling into a ravenous Sarlacc Pit on Tatooine in 'Return of the Jedi'.

He was presumed dead for a long time but he appears alive and well on 'The Mandalorian'. The show will follow his journey leading up to his appearance there.
