DISNEY+‘S The Mandalorian is set to bring back a Star Wars fan favourite: Boba Fett.

Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in 2002’s Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, has been confirmed to appear in season two of the Disney+ Star Wars series.

According to sources, Morrison has been signed up to play Boba Fett, the infamous bounty hunter who first appeared in 1980’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back before seemingly being killed in 1983’s Return of the Jedi after falling into a sarlacc pit.

Actor Jeremy Bulloch portrayed the character in the original trilogy.

However, Boba Fett is only expected to be a small part of The Mandalorian series. And his presence has already been teased in a season one episode called The Gunslinger, when a mysterious figure sporting the bounty hunter’s trademark spurs approached the apparently lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen).

It is thought the character’s revival could be linked to a cloning programme that was teased in Attack of the Clones.

The keenly anticipated second season of The Mandalorian is due to begin in October on Disney+. It will feature other series newcomers, including actor Michael Biehn.

Incoming directors include Alita: Battle Angel‘s Robert Rodriguez and Peyton Reed, of Ant-Man fame.
