Temura Morrison On If He Ever Thought He Would Return To Star Wars

The Book of Boba Fett Season 2

Temura Morrison became part of the Star Wars universe by playing Jango Fett in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones. The character met his end in the film, having his dome lopped off by Mace Windu in the Petranaki arena on Geonosis. However, because of the nature of science-fiction and the presence of cones in the franchise, that didn’t necessarily mean the actor would never appear again.

While it took 18 years, Morrison returned to the galaxy far, far away, not as Jango Fett, but as Jango’s son, Boba Fett. The first bounty Hunter fans fell in love with nearly four decades earlier. The actor recently talked to The New York Times about the anticipation he had on returning before he received the official word. You can check out what he had to say below.

“There was a lot of stuff online about a possible Star Wars bounty-hunter film, and then I was watching all the new Star Wars movies coming out, wondering if they were ever going to do anything with Jango Fett. My agent and I had a number of discussions — when are they going to call me? But then I kept forgetting about it. In this day and age, they have a number of options. They could have called other people to play the part, they can go with a fresh face. They could have called the Rock. I felt so grateful that after all this time, something came to be.”

There wasn’t, at least not yet, a bounty hunter film, but I think many fans would agree that bringing Morrison back in The Mandalorian was perfect.

Morrison’s return, along with Boba Fett’s were both something truly special, epic even. Boba Fett is not only a bounty hunter but a warrior. One whose brutality seems to be on par with that of a Dothraki Bloodrider from Game of Thrones. The bounty hunter had a somewhat anti-climactic end in Return of the Jedi. He has since been redeemed thanks to The Mandalorian.
