It’s been revealed that The Mandalorian Season 2 will feature Boba Fett who’s going to return to the Star Wars universe since his last appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.
Think back to Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, Boba Fett appeared at the very beginning of that movie.
The infamous bounty was then unceremoniously dispatched in that film.
He was killed by accident and it was a really rubbish death.
To cut a stupid ‘death’ scene short, he was hit and fell into the Sarlacc pit.
Anyway, it turns out he survived that since it’s been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter that Boba Fett will feature in The Mandalorian Season 2.
THR did report that he would only play a “small role” in the second season of the Star Wars live-action series which airs on Disney Plus.
Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequel movies will return to play Boba in The Mandalorian.
If you remember, Boba Fett is actually Jango’s clone who raised him as his son.
The Mandalorian Season 2 will feature Boba Fett’s return to the Star Wars universe
The Mandalorian Season 2 will now feature Rosario Dawson (Daredevil) as Ahsoka Tano and Michael Biehn (Aliens) as a bounty hunter from the Mando’s past.
The fact that Boba Fett is returning to the Star Wars universe really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.
Disney and Lucasfilm have been working on a way to bring Boba back to the Star Wars live-action properties for a while now.
Lucasfilm was going to make a standalone movie and had even hired Josh Trank to direct the film.
However, that was cancelled after the standalone movies failed to perform as well as Disney hoped they would at the box office.
The Mandalorian season 2 is scheduled to hit Disney Plus in October 2020.
However, it remains to be seen how the coronavirus pandemic might affect that.
