    The secret is now out. Last Friday saw the long-awaited return of Boba Fett to the Star Wars galaxy, after years of teases and a lot of speculation. Even after the season premiere of The Mandalorian season 2, fans were still not 100% sure that the character that appeared at the end, played by Temuera Morrison (who had been reported to join the new season back in May), was in fact Boba Fett. But The Tragedy brought him back for good, and the questions of how that happened in the Star Wars canon remain unanswered. What we do know now is how it happened behind the scenes.



    Temuera Morrison has has been interviewed by The New York Times, and he pulled back the curtain on how his return to the Star Wars galaxy happened. He debuted in the franchise back in 2002's Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, in which he played Jango Fett, Boba's son. He was brought back in Revenge of the Sith to play several of the members of the clone army, including Commander Cody. His voice was then retroactively incorporated into Boba Fett's scenes in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.

    Morrison had been expecting a call from Lucasfilm ever since they decided to move forward with new Star Wars movies, but he always tried to keep his feet on the ground:

    Finally, Jon Favreau called for The Mandalorian:

    In that meeting, they talked to him about a kind of different Boba Fett, more seasoned this time:

    Several things have changed for Boba since the last time we saw him, and the makeup and costume helped Morrison find that new character:

    He added that his own background was also put into the character he was playing:

    The conversation then turned to his role as Jango Fett in the Star Wars prequels. About his casting, Morrison said:

    He remembers that his role in the film wasn't done when filming wrapped:

    He then weighed in on his unceremonious death as Jango Fett:

    And then, the most interesting part of the conversation was left for the end. According to the actor, he hasn't been told how did Boba Fett survive being devoured by the Sarlacc:

    In fact, he is saying he doesn't know if he'll come back to the Star Wars galaxy:

    In a vacuum, his words would be not that relevant and typical of any actor who's ever been in a Star Wars project. However, we are not in a vacuum. Last month it was reported that Lucasfilm has been secretly putting together a Boba Fett-centric miniseries that would have begun filming already. Also, we know that season 3 of The Mandalorian is already filming, so if Temuera Morrison were to come back as Boba Fett, he'd now already!



    Even if filming for the Fett miniseries was pushed back, if that character was going to receive that treatment, it would just make sense that the actor who just played the role would know about it. And also, if Fett was going to come back for the third season, he'd also know, even if he wasn't filming his episode for another couple of months. There are only two possibilities, then - either he's lying, or the miniseries is just a non-true story (hard to believe, given that Deadline is the source, one of the most reputable trades in Hollywood right now), and the character is not coming back for the third season (something I actually wouldn't be surprised to find out).



    Boba Fett is supposedly coming back for the next episode, Chapter 15, after he teamed up with the title character at the end of The Tragedy to take Grogu out of Moff Gideon's hands. We'll have to wait to find out how the future of the character evolves in the live-action medium.
