The Book of Boba Fett gave Star Wars fans a lot to be happy about. Boba, his wookie, Fennec Shand, and the Mods rule Mos Espa and Tatooine, Cobb Vanth is alive (there’s a rancor!) and Din Djarin has been reunited with Grogu. But what is all this leading to? What’s next for The Mandalorian Season 3, Ahsoka Tano, The Rangers of the New Republic, and the planet of Mandalore?
In this video we envision the multi-show crossover event that bridges the Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels, the New Jedi Temple, and the Rise of the First Order. Is all of this coming down to a united Mandalore under the rule of Din Djarin, facing off against a Thrawn-led Chiss Ascendancy?

Let’s talk about what’s next for Star Wars after the Book of Boba Fett. The next Star Wars series is going to be a kind of prequel, Kenobi. So we’re going to focus on the shows that take place after the finale of Boba Fett: the Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano, boba fett season 2, and the on hold rangers of the new republic.
I’ve also got theories about what all of these shows are leading into, the crossover movie, and how this can restart a new trilogy set hundreds of years in the future.
So all seasons long in the Book of Boba Fett, we’ve all been confused about the structure. Why constantly go to flashbacks, and why have 2 episodes where Boba Fett either doesn’t appear or has a cameo? I think it’s because Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni don’t think of this as a normal single season of a TV show. They just see this as a smaller part of a much wider story. A story that spans several different TV series. So in their mind, it would be impossible to tell the story of Boba fett without also telling the story of Grogu, and the Jedi temple.
The show has always been concerned with the larger story. As we discussed in our mandalorian season 3 video, all of this is eventually building toward the rise of the first order. We saw an inkling of this in the mandalorian season 2. We see weird cloning chambers, and Gideon tells us why he needed Grogu’s blood.
So here’s what we know about the First Order and Palpatine’s super secret Sith fleet. After the empire was finally defeated at Jakku, the remaining imperials, the best of the best, went off into the unknown regions to rebuild. Thirty odd years later, we have the first order. But the unknown regions are also where Palpatine was rebuilding his fleet and his body. And this is where a whole other group lives, called the Chiss ascendancy.
You may have heard of one of their best and brightest: Grand Admiral Thrawn.
Now let’s look at how this actually affects each show and the characters. I don’t know if there’s going to be a Boba Fett season 2, or if we’re just going to see him operating in the background of these series. After the events of the finale, he has mos espa and tatooine fully under his control.
I think that, as a man who wants to rule with respect, he’ll work to make sure the tuskens are finally treated equally, and their lands are left alone. Heck, you never know, maybe we’ll start seeing these cultures integrate and trade. Next time someone walks into Mos Eisley, there might be one of the sand people at the bar, drinking a bloody rancor through a straw.
We also see that he chose to use the rancor in the final battle, instead of flying slave one and blasting away. This is for a few very important reasons. For one, a lot more people would have died if he started blasting the city with his gunship. And the whole point of staying in town instead of retreating to the fortress was to be seen fighting for the people of Mos Espa. He wants to earn the respect of the people–by riding a rancor into battle in the middle of town.
It’s a lot more impressive than a litter. This all solidifies his rule of Tatooine, and allows him to look outward.
And the end credits scene also showed that Cobb Vanth has lived, and he’s about to get some cybernetic modifications.
