Fett, portrayed by Temuera Morrison, became a supporting character in Season 2 of The Mandalorian and was featured returning to Jabba the Hutt's palace.

Fett shot up the place and sat down on Jabba's throne before a title card arrived announcing The Book of Boba Fett.

Disney has yet to officially announce the series. The company plans on releasing roughly 10 Star Wars shows to Disney+, including Mandalorian spinoffs Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic.

British actor Jeremy Bulloch, who originally portrayed Boba Fett in the Star Wars films, recently died at age 75.

"A fine actor, delightful company & so kind to everyone lucky enough to meet or work with him," Star Wars star Mark Hamill, who portrayed Luke Skywalker said on Twitter.

"I will deeply miss him & am so grateful to have known him."
