When The Mandalorian debuted on Disney+ in 2019, it changed the landscape for Star Wars, encouraging a small screen approach after some lacklustre big-screen releases.

The Book of Boba Fett is the second series to enter into Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni’s Mando-verse as it looks to expand on the most infamous bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy.

But just how many episodes are there in The Book of Boba Fett and when will the finale hit screens?

The Book of Boba Fett: Release date and plot

The Book of Boba Fett lands on Disney+ on December 29th, 2021, just over a year after the series was first announced in a post-credits scene at the end of The Mandalorian season 2.

After toppling Bib Fortuna and claiming Jabba the Hutt’s criminal empire in the aforementioned post-credits scene, The Book of Boba Fett follows the titular bounty hunter as he looks to make his own mark on the galaxy’s criminal underworld.

Alongside Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand, the duo must take on crime lords, mercenaries and Boba’s storied past to make their way in the universe.

How many episodes are in The Book of Boba Fett?

The Book of Boba Fett will consist of seven episodes in total.

Veteran Star Wars fans will note that this is one fewer episode than we saw in seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian.

However, the series is being helmed by Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni while a number of directors from The Mandalorian return including Robert Rodriguez and Bryce Dallas Howard so the series should maintain a similar feel.
