Disney+ dropped the trailer for “The Book of Boba Fett” on Monday, revealing that while “Jabba ruled with fear,” Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett intends “to rule with respect” now that he’s taken over his old territory on Tatooine.
The trailer begins with Boba Fett saying, “I am not a bounty hunter” in a voiceover while putting on his iconic suit, and an unknown character responding, “I’ve heard otherwise.”
“I know that you sit on the throne of your former employer,” the person continues. “Jabba ruled with fear, I intend to rule with respect,” Boba Fett says.
“You were all once captains under Jabba the Hutt,” Fennec Shand, Boba Fett’s partner (played by Ming-Na Wen), says to a group of aliens congregating around a table. “I’m here to make a proposal that’s mutually beneficial. Why speak of conflict, when cooperation can make us all rich?” Boba Fett tells them.
“What prevents us all from killing you and taking what we want?” one man asks. The trailer then cuts to scenes of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand kicking ass, before returning to the meeting where she says to Jabba’s former captains: “If you had spoken such insolence to Jabba, he’d have fed you to his menagerie.”
“Please, speak freely,” Boba Fett says to the now-scared group.
