It was a great week for Disney. The galactic media empire made some sick announcements for its streaming service Disney Plus. The most important were related to Star Wars. Obviously. Ah, and there were also some news about something called the "Marvel Universe". But I don't know what that has to do with good movies. However, there is a lot of talk about The Book of Boba Fett. The series about the iconic bounty hunter has its release at the end of December and is related directly to The Mandalorian. Oh, you thought you would get a real trailer for the Obi Wan series? Perhaps the archives are incomplete.
Boba Fett Joins Fortnite
Well, the movie fans are happy. But of course, gaming fans shouldn't go away empty-handed either. And what promotion would be better than a new Fortnite skin, suitable for the Disney Plus series The Book of Boba Fett? As Disney recently announced, The Book of Boba Fett will start on December 29, 202,1 on the in-house streaming service Disney Plus and to push us even more for this cultural and cinematic highlight, Epic Games announced an official Fortnite x Boba Fett crossover.
Boba Fett x Fortnite Release Date
Epic Games says: Boba Fett will be making his arrival on the Island on December 24, 2021 at 7pm ET! Is there any better way to celebrate Christmas? No. Or as Obi Wan would say: I don't think so. Yes, every Star Wars line ever spoken is a meme.
So, Boba Fett is coming to Fortnite a weekend before the series is released on Disney Plus. As you can see in the promo picture above, Boba is accompanied by his partner Fennec Shand, played by Ming Na Wen. Both of these will almost certainly be available as skins, although Epic has not yet confirmed these details.
Boba Fett x Fortnite Skin Price
If we look at the prices of the previous Fortnite skins from the Star Wars franchise, we can assume that Boba Fett will also cost around 1,500 V-Bucks. It will probably be available in a set with other cosmetics or individually.
So that's all we currently know about the Boba Fett x Fortnite collaboration. And when the time comes, we will of course update everything about the price and all information about Boba Fett.
