The scene in season one of The Mandalorian that many though teased Boba Fett has now been confirmed to be just that. While some thought it was teasing Moff Gideon, it’s been confirmed that it was Fett and he will be returning to the Star Wars universe in a small role in the second season.
The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed today that not only will Fett return, but he’ll be played by Temuera Morrison:
Boba Fett is expected to play just a small role in season two of the series, after the character was teased in the season one episode “The Gunslinger,” when a mysterious figure sporting the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).
Temuera played Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones as well as the clones, and he voiced Boba Fett in the Special Edition of The Empire Strikes Back. He also returned to voice Boba in the Star Wars Battlefront video game EA made.
