When The Book of Boba Fett — billed by creator Jon Favreau as “the next chapter” in the Mando-Verse and as The Mandalorian Season 2.5″ — debuts on Disney+ this Wednesday, December 29, Star Wars fans will have gone 376 days without a live-action series.

After Fett deposited Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal)Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff)Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks), and Cara Dune (Gina Carano) to rescue Grogu (AKA “Baby Yoda”) from Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) and his Dark Trooper droids, he and Shand seemingly made their way back to Tatooine.

In the surprise post credits scene, the Kaminoan clone and his right-hand woman stormed Jabba the Hutt’s former palace, making quick work of Bib Fortuna (Michael Carter) and taking Jabba’s throne for themselves.
