Boba Fett Returns! ("The Mandalorian" Season 2 Casting)



I was aware of the extended universe stories (now referred to as Legends) of Boba Fett and how they brought him back from the Sarlacc Pit. "Return Of The Jedi" is my favorite film in the Skywalker Saga and seeing it as a kid back in 1983 I never really wanted (or cared) if Boba Fett lived or died. I thought he was a cool character but I wasn't as obsessed with him as certain other fanboys were.
The same thing ended up happening to Darth Maul. I originally thought that bringing him back from the dead was absolutely ridiculous, but now having seen his character give purpose to the overall story arc of The Clone Wars I have come to respect the decision and I now think it was a great call.
So thanks to The Hollywood Reporter who broke the news the characters demise from the original trilogy now has brought Boba Fett back to the Star Wars Universe...and is now officially canon. He did survive and will now serve his purpose in the upcoming season of "The Mandalorian," which was widely praised by critics and fans alike.
Playing the role is New Zealand veteran actor Temuera Morrison, who played Boba's father Jango Fett in the prequel film "Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones." And because Boba himself is a clone, it's only fitting. Morrison ended up voicing Boba Fett in the Star Wars Special Edition theatrical rereleases. So he IS reprising his role...from a certain point of view.
It was a bit unexpected (though it was widely rumored) but now that it will come to pass I can't help but get a bit hyped for what I already thought was a magnificent entry into the larger Star Wars Universe.
I thought the first season of "The Mandalorian" knocked it out of the park, and the powers at Lucasfilm seem intent on topping themselves. And you know who wins?
We do.
