The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison addresses rumors that he will appear in Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Right now, Lucasfilm’s newest original Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett is currently dropping new episodes each week for Disney Plus. The series kicks off 2022 with some exciting new content for the galaxy far, far away, that was mostly absent throughout 2021, with the exception of animated series such as The Bad Batch and Star Wars Visions. This year is perhaps the most exciting for Star Wars fans in recent memory because we will also see the premieres of new shows such as Andor and perhaps most of all, Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Given that Obi-Wan Kenobi is set sometime between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, some have speculated that we could see an appearance from Temuera Morrison, whether he’d be playing Boba Fett or any of the clones that are still at large during this time period. When asked by the Washington Post about a potential appearance in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Temuera Morrison had this to say:
“Well, there are people — I’m thinking of Captain Rex for one. He looks a little like me. There’s Commander Cody. What happened to those guys? There’s all those clone armies. That could be something fresh and new and exciting.”
It will be interesting to see if Temuera Morrison were to show up in Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series has a an impressive and expansive ensemble of characters along with Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen, and if we saw some Clone Wars tie-ins with appearances from certain clones like Captain Rex and Commander Cody, it would only make sense for Temuera Morrison to play them in live-action.
Here is the synopsis for the Disney Plus original Star Wars series:
The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.
