Boba Fett made an appearance in the Disney+ series, ‘The Mandalorian’

Although this character was noticeably absent from the first season of this series, Boba Fett returned to the galaxy far, far away with season 2 of The Mandalorian. Boba Fett first came into contact with the bounty hunter after finding his beskar armor, left to him by his father Jango Fett.

He and the Mandalorian didn’t exactly get along when they first met, but they eventually made a deal. Boba Fett would keep the Mandalorian and his Child safe and in exchange, he’d get his armor back. This partnership, of course, came in handy when Moff Gideon kidnapped little Grogu.

There was an after-credits scene starring Boba Fett in ‘The Mandalorian’

Sure, Luke Skywalker and R2-D2 taking the Child was a pretty emotional moment, but The Mandalorian season 2 finale included another surprising clip after the credits. In it, Boba Fett and Fennec Shand raided one of the Hutt’s palaces. 

They let his slave go before Boba Fett took the throne. His companion stood right beside him, with the title of another series later appearing on the screen. The Book of Boba Fett is expected to premiere during December 2021, around the same time season 3 of The Mandalorian is expected to release on Disney’s streaming platform.
