On the heels of the Season 1 finale EP/director Deborah Chow is revealing that the six-episode drama was not intended to be an ongoing series saying “We really did conceive it to be a limited series,”
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, meanwhile, says the decision for a season 2 for this Star Wars spin off series ultimately rests with the fans. “If there’s huge engagement and people really want more Obi-Wan, we’ll certainly give that consideration because the fans, they speak to us. And if we feel like, ‘OK, there’s a real reason to do this; it’s answering the why then,’ then we’ll do it. But we’ll see.”
Every galaxy has an underworld. The Wrap Reports: “The Book of Boba Fett” has a lot going for it – it’s the first spin-off of the insanely popular “The Mandalorian;” it returns Temuera Morrison, who played the character of Jango Fett in the prequels and in the last season of “The Mandalorian,” with the franchise; and is the first nonanimated “Star Wars” story of any kind since “The Mandalorian’s” second season concluded way back on Dec. 18, 2020.

Ever wonder what it’s like auditioning for one of the biggest film franchises in history?
Let’s ask Kelly Marie Tran. Prior to joining the Star Wars film franchise as Resistance mechanic Rose Tico, Tran was working hard to break through by making her mark in the improv and sketch comedy scene. Little did she know, she was bound for an audition that would send her star soaring in Hollywood via a single film.
How exactly does the process of auditioning for a Star Wars movie even begin? Here’s how it went for Tran:
“I remember getting an email, just like you normally would for an audition, but the email said the project was ‘The Untitled Rian Johnson Project,’ which after a little bit of light Googling, it was pretty clear that he was doing Episode 8.”
As we’ve come to expect from major franchises like Star Wars, the MCU and more, the folks in charge will do everything possible to preserve the mystery until the films are ready for the big screen. Their efforts to keep plot details under wraps doesn’t just apply to us fans; there are also measures in place to keep that information top secret during the audition phase. Tran continued:
“We didn’t get sides to prepare. They wouldn’t even let you have them. So we would get to the audition and then you’d be given these sides that were printed on red paper so that you wouldn’t take them with you.”

Not only is Boba Fett back, but so is Temuera Morrison, who originally played Boba’s dad, Jango Fett, in the prequel trilogy. As Morrison readily admitted in a recent interview, Boba’s return to Star Wars is a big surprise considering the character was gobbled up by the Sarlacc pit in 1983’s Return of the Jedi. Figuring out how to work in the now-aging bounty hunter into The Mandalorian was a big task…

Sadly, it has been reported that David Prowse has passed away at age 85.
