The Book of Boba Fett is the next chapter of the Star Wars Disney+ series’ that will debut this December. While we know some details about the upcoming series there is a lot that has been clouded in mystery. Showrunner Jon Favreau even went to great lengths to keep the announcement of the series a surprise at the end of The Mandalorian season 2. Along with the big reveal of the series, it was announced that Robert Rodriguez would be leading the project. He was the director for one of the most famous episodes in The Mandalorian when Boba reclaimed his armor and took down a squad of stormtroopers. Most assumed that the famed director would be directing a majority of the series with Filoni and Favreau busy working on the other Star Wars projects.
We now have a little bit more clarity about the series and the director’s thanks to Temura Morrison. During an interview with Express.co.uk Temura divulged that some familiar faces were behind the lens for The Book of Boba Fett.
We’ve got some great directors onboard – Robert Rodriguez, Favreau, Bryce [Dallas Howard], Dave Filoni.

While this is not really shocking news it does confirm that this was not a solo project by Rodriguez. The inclusion of Favreau, Filoni, and Bryce is a group that has worked together since the first season of The Mandalorian. Jon Favreau and Bryce Dallas Howard both directed for both seasons of The Mandalorian and Filoni, while being a producer of the show, made his directorial debut in season 2.
Now the speculation will be what surprises will come with the episodes each one directs. The Book of Boba Fett is expected to pick up where our favorite bounty hunter was last seen. After helping Din Djarin rescue Grogu from the Empire, Boba and his partner Fennic Shan went back to Tatooine and took over the Jabba’s old palace, claiming his place on the throne.
