    I absolutely LOVE this. This character was a bad-ass based on reputation alone. He came from a time where we didn't need to see everything. That's how well his character was established. What happened to him in ROTJ, while I admit it made me laugh, was a disservice to him. Not only will he get the chance to shine, but the fact that he survives being eaten by a giant worm only adds to his badassness.

    Oh no, I wish he stayed dead. I really hate all these resurrections and moreover this character is very much meh, too much hype for nothing.

    I, for one, am so incredibly stoked about this. How do you think they'll do his armor? I think I remember in the Aftermath trilogy it was heavily implied some scavengers or trophy hunters found some half-digested armor out in the dune sea.

    My Thoughts:

    The Good:

    Boba played by Temuera Morrison. Great so see him again. Also the only logical Choice imho
    Fits well into a Mandalorian-Based Show.

    The Bad:

    Can't they just make a Show without already known Characters?
    So much Potential for new, unseen Character Arcs and Storylines.
    I know, Asohka and yadda yadda.
    I would've just preferred to have Boba maybe appear as an Hologram?
    And have him appear in Season Three?

    I just don't feel so good about it. On the other Hand I know it's a good Choice.
    ahhh i dont even know what im trying to say. Just wanted to throw my Thoughts in here.

    Lucas himself wouldnt have killed Boba if he had known how beloved he was.
    Great decision to bring him back, even better if he is played by the one and only Temuera Morrison

    Can definitely value this opinion. Seems like they are trying to pack a lot of money-making characters into Season 2. There were only 8 episodes (about 40 minutes each) of season 1. There are also rumors of many of the characters from season 1 returning for season 2. So if that's any indication we cannot cram all of these characters and stories into season 2 without sacrificing original material.

    My Hopes are high for this Show. I would be glad if they managed to at least hold the Level of Quality Season 1 was.
    (ofc, there were some Episodes which felt like Filler to me...nice, well-crafted Fillers, but still.

    One thing for the folks saying they wish he "stayed dead"...

    He never died. We say a character fall into a pit. That's not death, and this is not resurrection.

    In fact, I'd take it one step further- since TCW season 7 never gave us the closure on Cad Bane that the test demo story reel stuff did, I'd even be okay with him showing up in Mando. Actually, I'd be more than okay with it ;)

    If I was Filoni and Favreau, I would release as much disinformation as I would real information, that way they keep us guessing and drive us crazy!:confused::confused::confused:

    Possibly, though the problem with that is that setting expectations could backfire really easily.

    Sure, teasing Boba Fett as something shiny could distract us from other stuff.

    But if it turns out that isn' true? Fans aren't gonna be happy.

    Yes I could see that. We are quite sensitive fans. Some day we must learn to let go ;).
    This is where I am guessing they go with it. A show-down between Din and Boba over a bounty or the Child.

    That is counter productive. Many/most fans will grow angry over having been lied to. What's more, half the fans will become angry with hearing the disinformation news (i.e. not liking the direction, 'cause "#NotMyStarWars), while the other half will look forward to seeing the disinformation news events and characters on screen, only to become angry when LFL does not deliver what was promised.

    Lying and disinformation is really a lose-lose strategy. A much better approach is to be honest and open, and develope a positive relationship with your audience.

    Glad that his survival and return is canon again. I expected it but it's nice to make it official now and him returning to live action for this show is perfect!

    Boba wasn't much in the OT but was a badass in books and video games. I'm confident that he will be given a great action scene that finally shows that he's more than just cool looking

    I'll be sooo happy to see Boba Fett back in action. A fantastic show gets even better and Boba's escape from the Sarlacc finally sees canonization. That sounds like good news all around to this fan.

    (boba fett)

    Yeah, I'm really excited. Sure hope they don't bring him back just to kill him off again, though. I think there's a lot they can do with Fett in other projects after showing up in Mando.

    This might be an unpopular opinion but am I the only one sceptical about seeing Live-action characters such as Ahsoka?

    I mean, first of all these recent rumors are just that, rumors (even the Boba/Bo-Katan ones).

    Second of all, I am not sure how I feel about adapting a character that only appeared in animation to Live-action. I am not hating, I have an open mind and faith in all the creative minds involved and I won't criticize something without seeing it. With that being said, I am a little worried. Also, I am not sure how I feel about another actress (such as the rumored Rosaria Dawnson) portraying Ahsoka instead of Ashley. I think I'd rather see Ashley play her but then again I do understand that casting is a complicated process and the people involved will make the best informed decision.

    Interesting point of view. While I will agree that Star Wars fans are some of the hardest to please, meeting ALL expectations of ALL the Star Wars fans out there would very convoluted. How are rumors of what will possibly be in The Mandalorian considered promises? And since when does anyone but the storyteller get to say what's in their story? When has any show or movie ever told us "This is what going to be in the show and this is how it will be done, enjoy!"
    This may be more of discussion of Star Wars fans and how we react to the stories we get as opposed to what the individual fan wants to see.
    For example: I thought/hoped that the Rise of Skywalker would figure heavily with Anakin and his ultimate goal of saving Padme and his child. I wanted Rey to be the result of that effort, but that was not what the storyteller told us. Should I get mad at Star Wars for them not doing what I wanted? Food for thought.
