Boba Fett to Appear in Season 2 of Star Wars ‘The Mandalorian‘. Boba Fett is set to appear in Season 2 of The Mandalorian according to an exclusive report with THR.
Actor Temuera Morrison who portrayed the character of Jango Fett (Boba Fett’s “father”) in the Star Wars prequels will now portray an adult version of Boba Fett in Season 2 of The Mandalorian according to the report. Though Morrison is only expected to play a small role in the series fans are ecstatic to hear of the characters appearance.
For those who may be confused by his reappearance in the Star Wars Universe, a quick reminder: Boba Fett was actually a clone made on Kamino gifted to Jango Fett for the donation of his DNA to create a clone army for the Jedi. Boba Fett followed in his “father’s” footsteps by becoming a Mandalorian bounty hunter, primarily featured in the original Star Wars trilogy.
