Boba Fett has undoubtedly been one of the most popular Star Wars characters in the universe and fans for years have been clamoring for a return of the bounty hunter. According to sources, the Mandalorian plans to bring him back in season 2.
Originally played by Jeremy Bulloch in the original trilogy, Boba Fett was hired to track down and capture Han Solo. His rustic, unique armor, stoic persona, and intimidating appearance, he's left a long-standing impression on fans, despite being seemingly killed off when his jet pack malfunctioned and he fell into the sarlacc pit.
New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison, who portrayed Boba's father Jango Fett in Star Wars Attack of the Clones, is reported to play the part. His presence was teased in the Mandalorian episode 'The Gunslinger', when a mysterious figure wearing the signature spurs approached the unconscious body of Fennec Shand.
There had been plans for a standalone Boba Fett movie, but the poor reception to Solo: A Star Wars Story caused a shift in Disney's plans to present Star Wars medium, which lead to the Jon Faverau-lead vehicle that eventually became The Mandalorian.
The Mandalorian Season 2 is set to air on Disney+ in October and will include Michael Biehn, noted for his role as Kyle Reese in The Terminator. Who he will play and character details are currently unknown.
