Disney+ Day 2021: Guide for Boba Fett Fans

Published Updated • Written by • Filed under Collectibles

Commemorating the day Disney’s streaming service first booted up, today is Disney+ Day. With “The Book of Boba Fett” just 47 days away from premiering, the parent company of Lucasfilm is turning up the volume of Boba Fett content — and we’re ready for it.

Under The Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett

The 21-minute documentary is now available worldwide on Disney+. It features new interviews with (in order of appearance) Ben Burtt, Joe Johnston, George Lucas, Dave Filoni, Pete Vilmur, Duwayne Dunham, Steve Sansweet, Maureen Bulloch, Jeremy Bulloch (archival), Glenn Randall Jr., Daniel Logan, Kathleen Kennedy, Temuera Morrison, and Ming-Na Wen.

While mostly showing content we’ve seen before, there’s a little bit of new archival behind-the-scenes footage like Glenn Randall Jr. speaking on set and doing several stunts; more parade footage of Duwayne Dunham walking and signing autographs; Slave I bluescreen footage; and Temuera behind the scenes in Season 2 of The Mandalorian.

Spoiler alert: no new “Book” footage. Noticeably absent from the history lesson was Jason Wingreen, who was the original voice of Boba Fett. Several other actors who played Boba Fett also weren’t mentioned.

Funko

First spotted as a placeholder on Best Buy’s website, both Amazon and Entertainment Earth have the “The Book of Boba Fett” Boba Fett POP and Keychain up for pre-order now. The new look mirrors his appearance in the trailer for “The Book of Boba Fett,” which is a little different than his re-armored look in Season 2 of “The Mandalorian.”


Also, at 7pm Pacific, Funko tweeted a giveaway opportunity for a chance to win one of the “Nomad” Boba Fett POPs!
