Boba Fett Will Feature In The Mandalorian Season Two
Boba Fett will be returning to the Star Wars galaxy in season two of The Mandalorian, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The publication reports that the bounty hunter - who first appeared on the big screen in 1980's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back - will be played by Temuera Morrison, who played his dad Jango Fett in 2002's Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
How big a role he will play remains to be seen, with the second series due to drop on Disney+ in October.
In March, Gina Carano confirmed that the season had finished filming. The 38-year-old shared an on-set snap on Instagram, declaring the sophomore season was ready to hit the editing room.
The Fast & Furious 6 star, who plays Cara Dune in the sci-fi spin-off show, posted a black and white photo with the caption: "That's a wrap on season 2... I absolutely love this work and the people in it."

The first season proved a huge hit with fans and critics alike, with the show widely praised for its storytelling and the way it seamlessly slotted into the Star Wars universe.
ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis wrote: "It's all so impressively executed, resulting in the best Star Wars content in years. The Mandalorian's pace of storytelling is masterful, with each entry earning a well-timed action sequence that appears to be above television standards."
One of the biggest successes to emerge from the show was the introduction of 'Baby Yoda', which has taken the fanbase (and entire internet) by storm.
This year the programme's toy lines have begun hitting the market, including a to-scale cutsey Yoda, an animatronic model, and a whole range of action figures ahead of season two's premiere. Better still, we may one day even seen a Baby Yoda standalone series.
Speaking about the future for Star Wars in an earnings call in February, Disney executive chairman Bob Iger said: "The priority in the next few years is television."
He added: "[There is] more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own directions in terms of series."
