Boba Fett TV show heading for Disney+?

Andy

An "insider" has reportedly informed We Got This Covered that there is a Boba Fett TV show being developed for Disney+. Further rumours surrounding the project infer that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for this series. 

As with all rumours we are taking this with a hefty pinch of salt, after all Disney are already working on The Mandalorian which will launch with Disney+ in November this year. Those of us who have been around the rumour mill for a while might remember the whisperings of a young Boba Fett appearing in the ultimately cancelled Star Wars Underworld project. At that time Daniel Logan was apparently set to reprise his role of the up and coming bounty hunter, but Logan is now in his 30s.

In October 2018 it was reported that a Boba Fett anthology film had been shelved due to the "poor box office performance" of Solo.

Is there room for a Boba Fett TV show as well as The Mandalorian? I'm not sure there is. It's entirely possible that these rumours are actually leaks from The Mandalorian, given the similar premise, but like a lot of rumours it is also likely that it could just be wishful thinking on the part of the fandom.

I don't know if I want a whole show based on him, but it'd be cool if he showed up in The Mandalorian... I just want confirmation either way if he survived the Sarlacc

Yeah, I personally feel that they could give Fett a cameo in The Mandalorian. He was always such a mysterious character and all though we got a little backstory in the prequels, I hope they don't give too much more away.

    • The first official trailer for The Mandalorian is here!

      After what seems like an eternity of waiting, the first official trailer for The Mandalorian is here. It has been almost 15 years since fans were first promised a live-action Star Wars TV show, and this new show from Jon Favreau looks set to fulfil the bargain when it launches along with Disney+ this November.
      The trailer was revealed at the D23, and confirms previously speculated details, such as the shows setting between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. While the Mandalorian remains his silent mysterious self, we do see a few snippets of action, including firefight with IG-11, a new character based on everybody's favourite assassin-droid-turned-bounty-hunter IG-88.
      The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian, supported by MMA fighter and actress Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef, as well as a host of other famed actors. 
      Ming-Na Wen (Mulan, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD) has also been added to the list of cast, after being announced by Disney chief Bob Iger. Wen has had her eye on a role in Star Wars for a while now, but it is still unknown what role she will play in The Mandalorian.
    • The Mandalorian

      The Mandalorian is a TV series set after the fall of the Empire, featuring an all-new cast of characters. It was announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger in November 2017, and will air on the new streaming service Disney+ in late 2019.
      The first series will have 8 episodes, and a second series is in production.
    • Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show

      The untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action TV show is currently in production for Disney+. It is due to start filming in 2020.
      The show was officially announced, along with the news that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role of Kenobi, at D23 in August 2019, after months of speculation. 
      It is set 8 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, placing it around the same time as the events of Solo.
