It’s looking more likely now that Temuera Morrison will play Boba Fett in some way during Season 2 of The Mandalorian, which begins October 30th on Disney+.
This follows the May 8th report done first by The Hollywood Reporter about the casting. While unconfirmed by Lucasfilm, this second source adds validity.
In recent months, Temuera has been listed as Boba Fett on IMDb; however, that is a user-edited platform, so was not reliable prior to this one.
It’s unclear if he’s playing Boba Fett after falling into the Sarlacc. “The Return of the Jedi” takes 4-5 years prior to the events of “The Mandalorian.” Perhaps Temuera is playing just a flashback? We’ll have to wait and see.
There are other rumors involving other characters, but those have not yet been further verified at this point. See our Fett Fact Check for more of the rumors in recent months.
Helmet nod to The Ronin for the heads up, plus BFFC fan sleepyfetts for the heads up.
