The Mandalorian, Disney Plus’ critically acclaimed Star Wars space-western series by Jon Favreau, continues to bolster its season 2 cast. In March, it had been reported that actress Rosario Dawson would be taking over the role of Anakin Skywalker’s apprentice from Star Wars: The Clone Wars for the second season The Mandalorian. Now The Hollywood Reporter features a scoop that not only is that the legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett joining season 2 stable, but he is going to be played by Temuera Morrison, the actor who portrayed Jango Fett in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
Many fans theorized that the closing moments of The Mandalorian’s season 1 episode, “The Gunslinger” hinted at Boba Fett appearing during a future episode, but that cameo or appearance didn’t occur during the primary season. The connection is clear because the famed bounty hunter is understood for his Mandalorian armor, but by this point within the story, he was presumed dead, swallowed by a Sarlacc in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. The Mandalorian takes place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi, meaning Boba Fett could be more resilient than we thought.
The first season of The Mandalorian began in November, starring such actors as Pedro Pascal, Giancarlo Esposito, Carl Weathers, Werner Herzog, Nick Nolte, Taika Waititi, Gina Carano, and Amy Sedaris. The second season is currently scheduled for release later this year, but it remains to be seen if which will be possible with the present state of the COVID-19 pandemic.
