Notable Quotes

- "The Book Of Boba Fett Explores The ‘Power Vacuum' Left By Jabba The Hutt" – Jon Favreau
- "Although Boba Fett is a very experienced bounty hunter, he's not experienced at running a criminal syndicate or managing forces. He's not normally a newcomer. He's an expert as we see him in most areas. But in this case, he's trying to transition to another position." – Jon Favreau
- "We'll see a lot more of (Boba's) true character in this season. And you'll definitely see him have to turn ‘barbarian mode'." – Robert Rodriguez

Ever since he first swaggered into The Empire Strikes Back, bounty hunter Boba Fett has been one of the biggest, baddest figures in the Star Wars galaxy – unbothered by Vader, quick on the draw, and boasting the coolest armour around. And now, nearly 40 years after he unceremoniously flew into the mouth of the Sarlacc pit in Return Of The Jedi, he's risen again in Disney+ series The Book Of Boba Fett – putting the character centre stage for the first time, and pitching him into the heart of the murky underworld for a galactic gangster story.

In Empire's January 2021 issue, we get the inside story on Boba Fett's glorious rebirth – attempting a career-change from bounty hunter to crime boss as he assumes Jabba The Hutt's throne and makes major moves among the criminal syndicates of Tattooine. Featuring world-exclusive new images, and fresh interviews with creative trio Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, and Robert Rodriguez, plus LucasFilm boss Kathleen Kennedy, and stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen, it's the ultimate deep-dive into a *Star Wars* story that's been a long time coming – talking the show's old-school mobster influences, that teaser at the end of The Mandalorian Season 2, the Boba projects that never came to be, the process of creating a fleshed-out character to match that iconic armour, and much more. All that, plus we get the first word on the future of Star Wars' small-screen empire, with Kennedy and Filoni talking Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka and more.

Also inside the mag, we talk knife-fights and killer songs with Steven Spielberg and his West Side Story collaborators, go head-to-head with the Karate Kid himself, Ralph Macchio, catch up with Kathryn Hahn on her incredible scene-stealing year, and present our epic review of 2021 – packed with brand new interviews on the biggest talking points in film and TV this year.

This issue is one hell of a bounty – order yours today.
