As The Mandalorian Season 3 came to a close, some people wondered if Temuera Morrison would be back for a Boba Fett Star Wars return. While many fans have commented that The Book of Boba Fett was more like The Mandalorian Season 2.5, it still opened a storyline from the OG Mandalorian himself. Morrison was recently asked about it, and he didn’t have qualms in answering.
The award-winning actor has been a Fett all the way back in 2002 for the prequel movie Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones as Jango Fett. In the 2004 DVD release of the 1980 original trilogy movie Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, he was also the uncredited voice for Boba Fett. Likewise, he has been a staple voice actor for official Star Wars video games.
Other than being a Fett and, of course, a clone trooper in the franchise, he also portrayed another role in 2005 Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith as Commander Cody.
Prior to learning about Din Djarin of The Mandalorian series on Disney Plus, the world knew one formidable Mandalorian whose name is Boba Fett. In fact, when the first news about The Mandalorian came out, people thought the series would be about him instead of a new guy and a baby Yoda. Not that we are complaining, though.
Then the badass bounty hunter from the original trilogy finally got this own series in December 2021. Though a good fraction of fans were expecting more from the character, he did become the new Daimyo of Mos Espa in the end. Thanks to his colourful rangers, Ming-Na Wen’s Fennec Shand, Pedro Pascal’s Din and Grogu as well.
Nevertheless, the series closed with the promise of the Daimyo’s return.
Temuera Morrison Talks About Possibility of Boba Fett Returning
In an article from ComicBook.com, the actor was asked about the possibility of the bounty hunter turned Mos Espa leader’s return for a follow-up series. Is there truly more story to be told about Jango Fett’s son? To which the actor replied:
I think there is a few changes going on. We also come under the big umbrella known as ‘Disney’ now, too. So it’s one of the last few conversations we had in L.A. The conversation started like, ‘Oh, look we’re having a few changes. We’re having a few cutbacks.’
And when you hear that at the other end of the line, it’s no good trying to negotiate any more money that’s for sure. So we’ll see what happens.
There have been reports that the Disney CEO had a company-wide mandate to focus on content quality than quantity. This was immediately felt in the superhero-comic book production company under its wing, Marvel Studios. The studio’s president Kevin Feige, already said that they would have a wider gap and space out projects, unlike how they did their lineup for the MCU’s Phase Four.
However, unlike Marvel, Lucasfilm has been absent from the silver screen ‘attendance’ since 2019 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker that J. J. Abrams directed starring Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac.
Is there a Season 2 for Temuera Morrison’s Boba Fett Series?
Still, Episode IX breached the billion-dollar mark at the worldwide box office with $1.074 billion from a $275 million budget. That was still a considerable amount of margin. Even Solo can be considered a breakeven title under the franchise with $393.1 million from also a $275 million production budget.
Understandably, Disney would want to be more cautious. Thus, Morrison’s second season might not be as solid as a beskar armor yet. On the other hand, since Lucasfilm sets for new big screen projects which fans hope to finally see in the theatres someday, Morrison might still have his day to wear his Mandalorian armour again.
Fresh from the recent Star Wars Celebration, the studio announced that a big screen project is being developed to bring together all series that covers The Mandalorian story and timeline. Thus, the actors from the upcoming Ahsoka Series as well as The Book of Boba Fett, would likely be there as well. Just please Lucasfilm, deliver these projects this time.
