The Book of Boba Fett – the next Star Wars series slated for late December – will be the first live-action TV show from a galaxy far, far away to be offered in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam in addition to the original English version, Disney+ Hotstar announced. The first two seasons of The Mandalorian, from which The Book of Boba Fett is based, were only available in English on Disney+ Hotstar. This indicates that The Mandalorian season 3 will also have local language dubs, as Disney+ Hotstar expands its slate of international content for non-English speakers.
It also makes The Book of Boba Fett the first Star Wars property to be dubbed in Malayalam. Previously, The Skywalker Saga and several Star Wars TV shows and short films were available in Hindi, Tamil and/or Telugu.
Meanwhile, Disney+ announced that The Book of Boba Fett will have a total of seven episodes that will air weekly on Wednesdays. With the new Star Wars series starting December 29 on Disney+ and Disney+ Hotstar, The Boba Fett Book is set to end on February 9, 2022 if we get a new episode every week. Additionally, we have some character posters from The Book of Boba Fett, featuring the two protagonists: Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett and Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand. And finally, we have a new The Book of Boba Fett teaser in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu and Malayalam.
