Boba Fett to Appear in The Mandalorian Season Two Played by Temuera Morrison

    Another familiar character is expected to appear in The Mandalorian season two, as The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that none other than Boba Fett will make a quick appearance. He will be played by Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett, Boba's father in 2002's Attack of the Clones.





    Fans of the show might remember that his appearance was already teased at the end of episode 5 of the first season, The Gunslinger, when a very familiar pair of boots walked towards the body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) lying on the ground. Ming-Na Wen has recently been rumored to make a return to the series after her first appearance. Boba Fett is yet another known character that is set to appear in season 2 of the Disney+ show, as over the past month, Rosario Dawson has also been reported to be playing Ahsoka Tano. Other major cameos from existing Star Wars characters are reportedly in the pipeline, although they won't be the focus of the series.



    It's also entirely possible that, since Boba Fett is a clone of his father Jango, appearances by Clone Troopers like Rex - who are also clones - may not be impossible. Rex in particular is known to have fought in, and survived, the Battle of Endor. Morrison also portrayed all Clone Troopers in Attack of the Clones, along with Revenge of the Sith. In addition, he dubbed over Jason Wingreen in The Empire Strikes Back for some Special Edition versions of the film, although he curiously did not dub over the character's scream in Return of the Jedi before being bumped into the Sarlaac. Speaking of which, it remains to be seen if they will explain how he escaped from the maw of the creature, or if that will be a story for another time.



    The Mandalorian season two will premiere in October on Disney+, and will have Robert RodriguezPeyton Reed, Dave Filoni, Carl Weathers, Rick Famuyiwa, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jon Favreau as directors.

    I'm more excited about the potential of Rex then I am Boba, 'cause if there is Ahsoka Rex isn't to far behind.

    Great news!

    I was certain it was Boba Fett that approached Fennec Shand at the end of "The Gunslinger" episode.

    Which begs the question: why was he searching for a dead person or was he after Baby Yoda to?

    Maybe he had not long escaped the Sarlacc pit and was returning to a hidden Slave 1.

    Could Hollywood Reporter confuse Rex with Boba Fett? I mean, it makes sense he would voice the live action clones.

    The clones have an accelerated growth rate. They might be alive but might be in their “70’s” by the time the show begins. Possible but not likely he is doing clone work. Boba had no growth acceleration. Odds are in his favor.

    No.

    The major Hollywood Trades - Variety, Deadline Hollywood, The Hollywood Reporter, and Entertainment Weekly - furiously vet any story they publish, even - and especially - those that are anonymously sourced.

    So if THR says that Temuera Morrison is playing Boba Fett, that is exactly who he's playing.

    Mando is only a few years after ROTJ where it's canon (Rebels) that Rex is that white bearded soldier when Han taps on the shoulder of the stormtrooper.

    It is not Canon that Rex and Nik Sant are the same character.

    All that is Canon is that Rex was involved in the Battle of Endor.

    He was first identified in 2002, courtesy of The Official Star Wars Fact File 44.

    BTW, Dave Filoni deliberately opted not to officially declare Nik Sant and Rex the same character because he didn't feel that doing so was the correct choice given that Sant was an already-established, pre-existing character that predated his (Filoni's) tenure with the franchise, instead leaving it up to the fans to decide for themselves on an individual basis whether or not they think the two characters are one and the same.

    Since Episode 5 of Mando, its been a widespread rumor that Boba Fett would appear in season 2. ( there was a popular Star Wars comic book published by Dark Horse, [ Legends ] where Boba Fett has a showdown with Jaster Mereel https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Jaster_Mereel maybe we'll get a reton where Mando and Mereel clash for the Child) Considering the timeline Temuera Morrison may appear as someone else, who knows... at least Ahsoka is somewhat confirmed. Now, Boba Fett, we'll have to wait and see. October seems so far away... BTS footage of the Mando is pretty interesting Favreau and Filoni should run LFL but KK was in episode 2 so those rumors as well are unfounded.
    I just got The Child Funko Pop in the mail from Entertainment Earth so excited for season 2! (yoda 2)

    Maybe he only voices Boba Fett AND portrays Rex as an live action character in Mando S2.

    Yeah but being reported by Hollywood Reporter doesn't make it official. Just makes it very likely. :p
