Collider has checked with insiders the current status of Star Wars TV series, including Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and The Mandalorian. So, the first season of the new series The Book of Boba Fett / “The Book of Boba Fett” has already been completely filmed and is now in post-production.
Accordingly, there is more than enough time for this process, and the project will be released as promised – in December this year. As the name implies, the series will focus on the Mandalorian Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and his assistant Fennek Shand (Ming-Na Wen). The plot will be closely related to the main series, The Mandalorian.

Initially, it was assumed that the third season of the series “The Mandalorian” will be released on the streaming service Disney + in October-November this year. Still, for several reasons, its premiere was postponed to 2022. The most important of them is the employment of the titular performer Pedro Pascal in the new HBO series The Last of Us, where he also got the main role (Pedro will play Joel, and the role of his partner Ellie was given to Bella Ramsay).
Even if Pedro Pascal is released early, the third season of The Mandalorian will not go into production, as a high-tech studio in Los Angeles is busy filming yet another Star Wars series. We are talking about the project “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” in which Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi) and Hayden Christensen (Anakin Skywalker) will return to their roles.

Recall that at the moment, Lucasfilm is also developing the series: “Star Wars: Ahsoka” – about the Jedi Ahsoka Tano performed by Rosario Dawson, “Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic” – about the Rangers of the New Republic ( Gina Carano, but the scandal interfered with the plans); Star Wars: Andor is about the rebel Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna.
