Culture on My Mind
December 21, 2020
Since it was just announced, I have one addendum to my post about the Disney Investor’s Call: The Book of Boba Fett.
The news was dropped at the end of The Mandalorian‘s season finale, and it was formally announced on December 21st.
Now, among things that shouldn’t need saying with the actual words being right there in the tweet and Facebook post, this is a new series, not the third season of The Mandalorian. A new series that Disney couldn’t talk about at the investor’s call because it would spoil the back half of a currently airing production.
Nevertheless, certain geek websites and YouTube talking heads insist that Temuera Morrison and Boba Fett are replacing Pedro Pascal and Din Djarin because of behind the scenes “drama” or some bantha poodoo.
Don’t give them the oxygen or the credit. They’re lying to you.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett is coming in December 2021. The Mandalorian is slated to return for a third season soon after that.
Culture on My Mind is inspired by the weekly Can’t Let It Go segment on the NPR Politics Podcast where each host brings one thing to the table that they just can’t stop thinking about.
