Although the Prerelease Theory The Mandalorian would be about Boba Fett was refuted a long time ago, it turns out the bounty hunter might be part of the show after all! Ahead of the second season it is said that Boba Fett will perform and the actor who plays him couldn't be more perfect.
According to The wrap, Actor Temuera Morrison will play during Boba Fett The Mandaloriansecond season. Given the character's story, it's an especially meaningful piece of casting in the Star Wars universe. In the 2002s Attack of the clonesMorrison played Jango Fett, the "father" of Boba Fett, who was technically a clone and not a biological son in the traditional sense. Jango Fett was a human bounty hunter who nonetheless wore Mandalorian armor – even though he wasn't actually a Mandalorian – and who worked for the Sith and was eventually killed by Jedi Master Mace Windu.
Since then, Morrison has embarked on a varied career in Hollywood. He played the vicious Abin Sur in 2011 Green Lantern Film and mercenary Powell in Dora and the lost city of goldand returned to his "bad guy" roots. On the other hand, he was also on the hero side, playing Aquaman's human father Thomas Curry in Aquaman and Chief Tui in Moana.
Of course, Boba Fett is best known for being the bounty hunter – originally played by Jeremy Bulloch – who tracks down Han Solo and delivers him to Darth Vader The Empire Strikes Back. However, his plot in the original trilogy raises some important questions about how he can be The Mandalorian, given what we know about the timeline so far. In the opening sequence of Return of the JediThe heroes save Han Solo during a battle that includes Boba Fett. During this battle, Boba Fett falls into the Sarlacc Pit, presumably to suffer the fatal fate destined for Luke Skywalker just minutes earlier.
His real fate, however, has been controversial for years. Prior to Disney's acquisition of Star Wars, the series of "Expanded Universe" novels (now known as Alternate Continuity) was known Legends) revealed that Boba Fett escaped the Sarlacc Pit and survived for decades. Officially, the current Canon timeline has not addressed what happened to him, which leaves the door wide open for him to appear on it The Mandalorian, in the years following his apparent death in Return of the Jedi. His arrival was teased back in season one when a character whose face we had never seen approached the aftermath of our hero's battle against mercenary Fennec Shand, accompanied by Boba Fett's iconic clinking noise. As another character to wear Mandalorian armor without actually being Mandalorian born, he could make an interesting slide for Din Djarin in season two, which starts on October 30th on Disney +.
