Actor Temuera Morrison could portray Boba Fett, the galaxy’s famed bounty hunter in Season 2 of Mandalorian. Temuera Morrison originally played the character, Jango Fett, in the Star Wars: Attack of the Clones. His rumoured return sparked immediate attention amongst the Star Wars community as to why his return would be perfect.
Temuera Morrison to play as Boba Fett
Boba Fett is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the Star Wars galaxy until today. The character was originally played by actor Jeremy Bulloch in Empire Strikes Back and in Return of the Jedi. The character now comes to life after its tease in the fifth episode of Season 1 of The Mandalorian.
But this time, Temuera Morrison steps his foot in the Star Wars series, not as Jango Fett but Boba Fett. Boba Fett was the clone son of father Jango Fett is what adds spice to this news.
The younger version of Boba Fett was played by Daniel Logan in the Attack of the Clones.
What is with the surprising entry of Boba Fett?
There is much detailed news to this question and is very much “a coincidence of sorts.” Initially, Boba Fett was considered to be dead after falling prey to the Sarlacc Pit.
In the fifth episode of the first season of the Mandalorian, the Mando joins hands with Toro. Toro is another bounty hunter equivalent to the Mandalorian with both of them targeting to kill Fennec Shand. This fight, however, goes south which gets Toro and Fennec Shand killed.
The episode nears to an end with a mysterious figure approaching the lifeless body of Fennec Shand. While the figure approaches Fennec Shand, a familiar sound from the figure rings a bell.
The sound of spurs that signified the entry of Boba Fett in Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back.
This is the part where even the expert fanatics of Star Wars scratched their heads. The figure seemed to be wearing a cape over its structure. As most characters of Star Wars wear capes, we cannot deduce anything from this. As a matter of fact, the jingling sound of the spurs is what creates a string of speculations. Although the speculations lead to likely possibilities, official sources have not confirmed the news as of now.
Will Temuera Morrison be a part of Season 2?
The entry of Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett Season 2 of The Mandalorian is not yet official from Disney+. Disney+ has refused to comment on the surfacing rumours about the return of Boba Fett.
Nonetheless, rumours are likely to become true with the traditions of the Hollywood industry. Let’s hope that this one becomes part of that tradition.
