'The Book of Boba Fett'' stars Temuera Morrison, Ming-Na Wen talk new chapters in his story

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Boba Fett first appeared on the big screen in the second "Star Wars" movie, "The Empire Strikes Back," as a bounty hunter and part of Darth Vader's crew.

Flash forward almost 40 years, and the character now has his own series on Disney+.

Fett shows up onscreen for just six minutes in the original Star Wars trilogy, and he appears to die in "Return of the Jedi." Still, he became a fan favorite and was resurrected for "The Mandalorian."

When that show became a big hit, his own Disney+ series became the logical next step.

"Star Wars: The Book Of Boba Fett" is now streaming on Disney+, with more new episodes rolling out for fans of the galaxy saga.


"The Mandalorian" explained how Fett came to survive and introduced us to his associate, assassin Fennec Shand played by Ming-Na Wen.

Fett, played by Temuera Morrison, was left for dead on the sands of Tatooine, but now he's back in a show made for Star Wars fans by Star Wars fans.

"I have a great sensitivity to what I feel works and doesn't work in the 'Star Wars' environment," Wen said. "And I don't even really have to think about it. I think it's just an innate sense that can't be explained. It's like being one with The Force."

The actors talked with Sandy Kenyon for the latest episode of "The Sitdown with Sandy Kenyon."

You can watch the episode here, but if you want to enjoy a better experience, did you know you can catch "The Sitdown with Sandy Kenyon" on your television set?
