So, set for Disney+ in November of this year.

It stars the Red Viper himself Pedro Pascal in the title role; the series runner is Jon Favreau and other cast members include Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog and Carl Weathers. So quite an interesting bunch! The music is by Black Panther composer Ludwig Göransson.

Impressive list of creators. Is this the first test of expanding the Star Wars universe beyond the "rebellion" characters for Disney/Lucasfilm? I don't know if they have revealed any story points for this series but I assume it is not just another way to tell the Boba Fett story?

I think the idea is it's like a gunslinger on the frontier type deal. Not a Boba Fett-related story, as far as I can tell, beyond the connection of being from the same race of people. Jon Favreau has said this is a character we have never seen before, in a time period we've never seen before (it's set a few years after ROTJ).
