THR is reporting that Temuera Morrison is returning to the Star Wars universe, this time playing Boba Fett, in the second season of the Disney+ Star War series The Mandalorian. Morrison previously played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones, and was the template for the clone troopers themselves.
Fett is expected to only play a small role in season two after appearing as the mysterious figure that approached Fennec Shand’s body in the season one episode “The Gunslinger.”
With The Mandalorian set after the events of Return of the Jedi, this all but confirms that Boba Fett did survive his fall into the Sarlacc Pit.
UPDATE: There’s whispers going around that Morrison could be playing multiple roles. What are the legit chances that we see Rex or another clone?
*Whispers a small tidbit I also heard*
Boba Fett isn’t the only role Temuera Morrison will play in the show….#StarWars
