I’m a huge fan, not to mention ‘geek’, of all things Disney from Star Wars to Marvel. I would like to be in each and every one of the franchises that Disney has, I hope that the next thing is Pixar. I’m a hoarder -he jokes- I want to be in everything, “she says with a laugh.

So right now, embarking on adventures with Boba is your best option, “he clarifies.
The seven-episode series follows the adventures of the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and the mercenary Fennec Shand, as they navigate the underworld of the Galaxy and return to the sands of Tatooine to claim the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his syndicate. of the crime.
