The series will premiere exclusively on Disney+ next week
So who is she?
The clip and the character
In the minute-long promo named “Throne,” we continue to see Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) and his trusted comrade Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) continue to take over the criminal underworld of Tatooine and make Boba the new kingpin after the reign of Jabba the Hutt and Bib Fortuna.
In the clip, we briefly see a new character riding a speeder bike modeled like a retro scooter and coming to a screeching halt in front of the camera. The character is named Drash, and is played by Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets, Prospect). Thatcher was cast along with Jordan Bolger (Peaky Blinders), who will play Skad. Both Skad and Drash are described as “faithful members of a street crew who are willing to question authority.” Bolger’s Skad is described as “edgy, fit and resilient,” while Thatcher’s Drash is described to be “cool, self-assured, and in need of refinement.”
We are yet to see if they end up joining Boba’s cause or will stand as obstacles in his path.
The Book of Boba Fett is set after the events of The Mandalorian season 2, and shows the legendary bounty hunter try to be his own boss in the Tatooine criminal underworld. It can even explain how Boba survived the events of 1983’s Return of the Jedi.
The Book of Boba Fett will start streaming on Wednesday, December 29 on Disney +.
