The year 2022 from a Star Wars standpoint will be one of the busiest in the history of the franchise. That year gets off to an unofficial start a couple days early when Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett lands on Disney Plus on Wednesday, December 29.

The official site posted the release date and a brief synopsis here

From TOS release:

The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.

The Book of Boba Fett stars Temuera Morrison and Ming-Na Wen. Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Robert Rodriguez, Kathleen Kennedy, and Colin Wilson are the executive producers. Karen Gilchrist and Carrie Beck serve as co-executive producers, with John Bartnicki producing and John Hampian as co-producer.

The Book of Boba Fett leads a deluge of forthcoming Star Wars content to Disney's streaming service. In 2022 alone, following the Boba Fett show, Disney Plus will roll out Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor and season 3 of The Mandalorian. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor have wrapped production while season 3 of The Mandalorian has just begun shooting.

The Hollywood Reporter mentioned in its release about the show that The Book of Boba Fett is one of 11 Star Wars series slated for Disney Plus in the coming years. That number counts quite a few unannounced shows in addition to what's already been known. In addition to the 2022 slate, we have Ahsoka, Lando and The Acolyte, which were all announced back in December. That leaves four unannounced shows that Lucasfilm and The Hollywood Reporter apparently know about, though none of the rest of us know about them. So, stay tuned, I guess?

The Book of Boba Fett was teased after the season 2 finale of The Mandalorian. We saw our favorite post-Sarlacc bounty hunter dispatch Bib Fortuna and take over the throne previously occupied by Jabba the Hutt on Tatooine. We do not know the number of episodes this season will contain. A closer look at the series was promised on Disney Plus Day, coming up on November 12, the second anniversary of the channel's debut.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in  Raiders of the Lost Ark ?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth? I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack. Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with  and settled 'flygate:' This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of th

Explaining That "Weird" Cut In Poltergeist. Read The Missing Scene

Why Is There A Strange Cut In The 1982 Horror Classic, Poltergeist? If you're a fan of the 1982 Horror classic, Poltergeist then you will be very familiar with that "weird" cut in the movie.  It's 32 minutes and 47 seconds in to the movie and the scene is where Diane is explaining the strange phenomenon that is happening in the kitchen.  First, she shows to Steve a chair scraping across the floor all on its own then she does the same with Carol Anne.  Steve leans up against the kitchen wall and is completely shocked at what just happened.  It's at this point Diane starts to explain the sensation of being pulled and then...A very abrupt cut.  One moment we are listening to Diane and suddenly it cuts to Diane and Steve at their next door neighbours door.  Why the sudden cut?  It's on the VHS, DVD, Blu-Ray and even the streaming versions.  Why does this awful and weird cut exist in the movie, Poltergeist?  Watch the clip below to see the cut: Well, the ans
