The Mandalorian is bringing a familiar helmet back to the Star Wars galaxy. Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in 2002's Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, will appear in season two of the Disney+ Star Wars series. Sources say Morrison will play Boba Fett, the famed bounty hunter who first appeared on the big screen 1980's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and who seemingly died in 1983's Return of the Jedi as he fell into a sarlacc pit. Actor Jeremy Bulloch portrayed the character in the original trilogy. 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). In Attack of the Clones, one of the storylines revolved around the discovery of a secret army of clones being amassed. The clones were built off of Jango. And it was further revealed that fan favorite Boba Fett was actually a clone Jango, being raised as his own son. Daniel Logan played a young version of Boba Fett in that film. While sources say Morrison is playing Boba Fett, it's always possible that something sneaky involving cloning is going on. The Mandalorian season two is slated to bow in October on Disney+, and will also include series newcomer Michael Biehn and features directors such as Alita: Battle Angel's Robert Rodriguez and Ant-Man's Peyton Reed.
My #1 Character is of course the famous Boba Fett. Why? As you say, he's mysterious and looks cool. You get that from him even before you watch any of his material. For those who saw him first in ESB, the bounty hunters were a pretty interesting bunch anyway, especially in a film that's very light on exotic aliens and droids, and the fact that Vader singles him out (and Fett is able to stand up to him and backchat him) marks him as unique among them. He's got the cool intro along with Vader when they spring the trap on Cloud City (complete with the jangling, spur-like sound), and he has his brief blaster fight with Luke. Cool ship, cool armour, cool voice, and he keeps standing up to Vader. Plus he's someone you can love to hate for separating Han and Leia, essentially taking over responsibility for the carbon-freezing once Vader's plot focuses more on Luke. The EU treated him well in various material too, especially The Last One Standing and some of the comics. I remember enjoying Twin Engines of Destruction and the Bar-Kooda stories when I was a kid.
