Star Wars fans will see Boba Fett coming onto the scene in The Mandalorian, at last.
The massive casting news for the Disney+ series continued on Friday (May 8) when it was revealed that Temuera Morrison will play the notorious bounty hunter in season two, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
New Zealand actor Morrison played Boba Fett’s father, the notorious Jango Fett, for the prequel film Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and other clones in Episode III – Revenge of the Sith.
Morrison also has experience playing Boba Fett as well, having re-recorded the character’s dialog for the original Star Wars trilogy as well as the Star Wars: Battlefront games.

According to THR, Morrison is only expected to have “just a small role” in The Mandalorian, though there is no telling yet exactly how Boba Fett will factor into the plot.
The first season dropped a few hints that Boba Fett was lurking in the background of the story, most memorably when a mysterious figure with clanking spurs appeared on screen.
The Mandalorian is also set to introduce another fan-favorite character, as Rosario Dawson brings Ahsoka Tano from The Clone Wars to live-action.
Although her casting has yet to be made official, Dawson has expressed hopes that there will be a big announcement soon.

The first look at The Child (aka Baby Yoda) was unveiled earlier this week when director Robert Rodriguez was announced to be working on the second season.
