‘Star Wars’: Leaked Agency Information Suggests ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2 May Feature Boba Fett In Major Recurring Role
Fans are eagerly waiting for the return of The Mandalorian. Season 2 begins Oct. 30, and there’s been heavy speculation about The Mandalorian’s second season for months. Until now, everything fans have been discussing has been hearsay. But an unexpected slip from one actor’s casting agency might have recently validated one major theory from the fan universe.
Since the announcement of The Mandalorian’s development, Star Wars viewers have been hoping the series would feature the infamous bounty hunter, Boba Fett. And while it’s possible season 1 included a cameo of Fett, it now seems there is tangible proof of Fett being in the series. Deep down the rabbit hole of the Star Wars Reddit community, a user posted a screenshot of Temuera Morrison’s (who formerly played Jango Fett) updated casting CV, which temporarily included The Mandalorian.
Boba Fett is one of ‘Star Wars’ most popular characters
Boba Fett is one of the most beloved characters from Star Wars. His iconic green armor, heavy weaponry, and quiet persona made him extremely memorable, and fans have been clamoring for more of his story.
Boba Fett was a ruthless bounty hunter created from Jango Fett’s cloned genetic code. Raised by his “father” on planet Kamino, he developed a hatred for Jedi after Mace Windu beheaded Jango Fett. He subsequently became a mercenary for the many criminal enterprises in the Star Wars universe, developing a strong working relationship with Darth Vader before his death.
Although Boba Fett was a villain, he still resonated deeply with fans for several reasons. His armor gave him a very cool appearance, he never seemed intimidated by Darth Vader, and he was a brilliant bounty hunter who relied on superior weaponry, rather than the Force. With his mysterious personality and unquestionable efficiency, it’s hard not to see why fans loved him so much.
Fans initially thought the Mandalorian was Boba Fett
When the public found out about Disney’s development of The Mandalorian, many fans assumed the story was about Boba Fett. The titular character’s appearance looks eerily similar to Boba Fett, and he lives by a similar code as the infamous bounty hunter.
However, series creator Jon Favreau quickly put these notions to rest. The Mandalorian is merely a clone who has adopted the Mandalorian way of life.
Boba Fett might make numerous appearances in ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 2
Morrison gained fame for playing Jango Fett, the genetic basis for the clones, in the prequel trilogy. There had already been speculation that he’d return to the franchise, and an updated agency CV suggests he might be making an appearance in The Mandalorian Season 2.
Morrison’s talent agency updated his CV and included acting credits for The Mandalorian, according to Inverse. A Reddit user found his resume had temporarily listed his credit under “various” directors, but his agency completely removed the information shortly after. The “various” distinction would insinuate that Morrison is appearing in multiple episodes because The Mandalorian features numerous directors.
It’s still not clear in what capacity Morrison will be involved with The Mandalorian or how big of a role Boba Fett will have if the assumptions are true. Fans will just have to tune in Oct. 30 to see.
