The first episode dropped on Disney+ and it started off by getting the big proverbial elephant in the room out of the way, namely how does Boba end up in The Mandalorian considering his fate in ROTJ. I think that was a good decision because it gets it out of the way immediately so new story lines can be built.

For those with good memories and have most of the SW verse memorized, a few characters seen on screen will be familiar. Several new characters are being inferred and will be likely showing up later in the series.

I'm not sure how some of the die-hard SW fans will react to seeing a different side of Boba. If the writing of the show is on par with Mandalorian then it'll make for good watching though.

He was indeed. His actual screen time in the movies is pretty brief, only a few minutes total shown onscreen. Thanks to stuff like the animated short in the Star Wars Christmas Special and numerous offshoot novels & comics, the character became a fan favorite. If you recall the ending of ROTJ his fate seems pretty certain but in the Disney+ series The Mandalorian he makes a surprising return in a big way. This new series takes place timeline was after Mandalorian but the flashbacks reveal what happens to the character between ROTJ and Mandalorian.

So far the production quality of the Disney+ shows have been popular with SW fans thanks to Favreau and Filoni doing meticulous curating of the SW mythology. If it keeps up, I personally wouldn't be surprised if the Disney sequel trilogy ends up being downplayed with them instead embracing the Disney+ shows and a new series of movies set in the SW verse with new characters & story lines.
