Temuera Morrison, most known in the Star Wars universe for portraying Jango Fett in 2002’s Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. Now, he is returning to the Star Wars universe for the second season of The Mandalorian on Disney+.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Temuera Morrison will be taking up the helmet and return as Boba Fett. Boba Fett first appeared in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back in 1980. He then returned in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi in 1983 where he ended up in the sarlacc pit. In those movies, Jeremy Bulloch portrayed Boba Fett.
The next time Boba Fett was seen, he was a young boy. This came during Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. It was discovered by Obi-Wan Kenobi that a massive clone army had been created for the Republic. They were based on Jango Fett. Boba Fett was a clone that Jango kept for himself as his son. He was portrayed by Daniel Logan. Sources are telling The Hollywood Reporter that Morrison will be portraying Boba Fett but there is always a chance that instead, he is a clone of some sort.
It is expected that Boba Fett will be playing a small role in the second season of The Mandalorian. His return was teased in The Gunslinger in season 1 of the show. This was towards the end of the episode when a figure similar to Fett approached the apparently lifeless Fennec Shand played by Ming-Na Win.
Star Wars: Celebration is supposed to take place in August. Expect more announcements to be officially made from around the Star Wars universe at that time.
Season two of The Mandalorian will be arriving on Disney+ this coming October. What do you think about the potential return of Boba Fett? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
