Boba Fett to Appear in Season 2 of the Mandalorian

Sarlacc ain’t got nothing on Boba Fett. According to THR, Temuera Morrison will appear as the beloved bounty hunter in season two of The Mandalorian.

Boba Fett’s theatrical debut was in 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, becoming an instant fan-favorite thanks to his unique appearance and mystique. Fett seemingly died in 1983’s Return of the Jedi as he fell into a sarlacc pit during the failed execution of Han Solo and Luke Skywalker. The bounty hunter’s popularity within the Star Wars fandom has earned him a cult status, as well as being featured prominently in many works of the Legends continuity. Actor Jeremy Bulloch portrayed the character in the original trilogy.

Morrison first played Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II – Attack of the Clones. In the film, one of the storylines revolved around the discovery of a secret army of clones. The clones were copies of Jango, and it was further revealed that fan favorite Boba Fett was actually a cloned Jango, being raised as his own son. Daniel Logan played a young version of Boba Fett in that film.

Rumors had been swirling that Boba would make an appearance in the Disney Plus series, after a mysterious off-screen character appeared at the very end of the fifth episode of season 1, “The Gunslinger”. All viewers could see was the character’s shadow, as he loomed over the dead body of bounty hunter Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

The Mandalorian season two is slated to hit Disney’s streaming service in October. Morrison’s casting is the second major exciting development for The Mandalorian season 2; the other being Rosario Dawson’s reported casting as live-action Ahsoka. While the Star Wars films are on hiatus for a few years following the release of The Rise of Skywalker, Disney and Lucasfilm is making sure that there is no shortage of content when it comes to the galaxy far, far away.
