Temuera Morrison Returns to the 'Star Wars' Universe to Play Boba Fett in 'The Mandalori


Sourced from The Hollywood Reporter:

Temuera Morrison played the famed bounty hunter's father in 2002's 'Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.'

The Mandalorian is bringing a familiar helmet back to the Star Wars galaxy.

The New Zealand actor who played Jango Fett in 2002's Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, will appear in season two of the Disney+ Star Wars series.

THR says Morrison will play Boba Fett, the famed bounty hunter who first appeared on the big screen in 1980's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and who seemingly died in 1983's Return of the Jedi as he fell into a sarlacc pit. Actor Jeremy Bulloch portrayed the character in the original trilogy.

Boba Fett is expected to play just a small role in season two of the series, after the character was teased in the season one episode "The Gunslinger," when a mysterious figure sporting the bounty hunter's trademark spurs approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

While sources say Morrison is playing Boba Fett, it's always possible that it could just be a cameo but lets all pray we get to see him done the skin of the best bounty hunter in the galaxy once again.

The Mandalorian season two is slated to bow in October on Disney+.

Here is a video interview we did with Temuera at Supanova 2018.
