Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett — Wednesdays in January
Star Wars fans are eager to get back to the galaxy of The Mandalorian, and they’ll soon get that chance. When Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) appeared in The Mandalorian season two episode “The Tragedy,” the bounty hunter electrified fans of the original trilogy and prequel trilogy alike. With Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand at his side, Boba Fett is ready to take his rightful place as the baddest bounty hunter in the Outer Rim.
The Book of Boba Fett will air seven episodes, with the bulk of the season — 4 episodes — premiering Wednesdays in January.
Star Wars official description of the series:
“The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
The Book of Boba Fett stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.”
Marvel’s Eternals — January 12
Disney has yet to confirm this release date officially. However, a report from Streaming Guider states that Marvel Studios’ Eternals from director Chloe Zhao will be available to Disney+ subscribers starting on January 12, 2022, at no additional charge. That means subscribers can view Eternals beginning on that date without paying a Premier Access charge.
Before Eternals, Marvel’s most recent feature theatrical release was the hit Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021). Following an exclusive 45-day theatrical run, Shang-Chi — starring Simu Liu and Awkwafina — landed on Disney+. Eternals also has guaranteed theater chains an exclusive 45-day window which would actually conclude in late December 2021. Though, it looks like Disney will hold off on releasing the controversial MCU ensemble epic until 2022.
The stacked cast of Eternals includes Gemma Chan as Sersei, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridlof as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harrington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayak as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.
