After almost a year of waiting, The MandalorianSeason 2is almost here. With the October 30 release date approaching quickly, preparations are being made for the release, including a certain veteran Star Wars actor’s agency getting a little ahead of themselves on their website. Here’s what this unusual leak means for The Mandalorian and Star Wars more broadly.
New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison is well known for his role as clone origin and bounty hunter Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels, but it’s widely been speculated he would at some point return to the Star Wars universe to portray his own cloned son, Boba, the bounty hunter supposedly swallowed in the Sarlacc Pit in Return of the Jedi. Some thought he would appear in a future season, while others insisted he already had a cameo in Season 1 as the mysterious figure who appears after Fennec Shand is left for dead.
However, it appears his first live-action appearance as Boba Fett is incoming, as his agency updated his actor’s CV before the release of the show, as noticed by redditor bguiler. While we knew Boba Fett was going to appear previously, we didn’t know how significant the role would be, or if it would just be a small cameo or easter egg.
