New evidence hints that The Mandalorian newcomer Temuera Morrison will play a significant role as the iconic bounty hunter Boba Fett.
Temuera Morrison is set to return to the Star Wars universe for the second season of the Disney Plus series The Mandalorian. Back in May, Morrison was said to be taking on the role of Boba Fett after playing the character’s father in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and several other projects. Now, Morrison’s casting as Boba Fett has seemingly been confirmed.
A listing on the Australian casting site Showcast, which has been taken down, stated that Temuera Morrison is playing Boba Fett in The Mandalorian season two. Furthermore, Showcast listed that Morrison worked under “various” directors, hinting that Boba Fett appears in multiple season two episodes.
The second season of The Mandalorian is currently set to premiere on October 30th. The Disney Plus series recently won five Emmys at the Creative Arts Awards.
