Temuera Morrison returning to the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian season two

Temuera Morrison returning to the Star Wars universe in The Mandalorian season two

Temuera Morrison made his Star Wars debut in 2002's Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, playing Boba Fett's father Jango and the proginator of the Clone army (which led to his return as Commander Cody in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith). But now he's heading back to the live action Star Wars universe a third time, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed, with an appearance on season two of The Mandalorian.

Even more intriguingly, the site claims Morrison will playing a rather iconic character - Boba Fett himself. The role will apparently be quite small on season two, but will mark the first on-screen confirmation that Fett survived the Sarlacc Pit in Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.

The Mandalorian is expected to return to Disney+ in October. Peyton Reed and Robert Rodriguez were both recently confirmed as directors on the second season.

Season one finished on Disney+ in the UK last week. Check out our review of the season one finale Redemption here.
