We are now a month away from Boba Fett’s book, the first one spin off To The Mandalorian which sees the return of Temuera Morrison’s helmeted bounty hunter. With Jabba dead and a power vacuum in the the criminal world of the galaxy, the green-armored Mandalorian has decided to make a name for himself now that he’s returned from the dead and seeks to reclaim his former glory.

The new trailer, however short, does a good job of getting you ready for the series when it releases at the end of the year. A lot of these are things we’ve seen before, like the looks of partner Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen, who also showed up earlier this year at The bad lot) and aerial shots of Tatooine, but there are new scenes like the return of Boba’s iconic ship, the Slave-I, or whatever it is now called. And whatever you think of the character and his questionable merit as a renowned badass, Morrison sells four words to close the trailer: “I’m Boba Fett.”

Boba was announced as the closest to the end of by Mando Second season, while Boba and Fennec literally took their places in Jabba’s palace. In an attempt to take over the old Hutt’s business and make a name for itself out of respect, the new series could see a mix of everything that came before it in Star wars television. Of course, there’s the shootout action and the western space vibes that Mandalorian has made us so intimately familiar, but it seems like we’re focusing on politics as well, at least when it comes to the many criminals across the galaxy. These are elements that have not really been explored on the screen since the first run of the Clone wars series since when Cartoon Network aired the series, so it should be interesting to see how they fare with this deadly duo.

Boba Fett’s book will arrive on Disney + starting December 29.
