Mandalorian… Mandalorian… These days this name resonates everywhere in the media, and I have to say: with a complete right. It’s because the first season of The Mandalorian series has met expectations, and more than thought. And it not only fulfilled expectations, but also restored the hope that the Star Wars franchise can continue very successfully in the future.
The second season is ahead of us, about which there has been a lot of speculation about what will happen in it. And the third season has already been announced.
As for the second season, there was speculation that the mysterious person who approached the lifeless body of Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) in the first season of The Mandalorian series could be the cult bounty hunter Boba Fett, first introduced in The Empire Strikes Back. And now, this has been officially confirmed.
It is already known who will play Fett in the second season of the Disney Plus Star Wars series. According to THR, it will be Temuera Morrison. As probably every Star Wars fan will know, this actor actually played Boba’s father, Jango Fett in Attack of The Clones.
It is important to emphasize that The Mandalorian takes place after the events in the movie Return of The Jedi. And that confirms that Fett survived the fall in Sarlacc pit.
In the non-canon version of the Star Wars comics, it can be seen how Boba Fett survives Sarlacc.
Release date, Future possibilities
The return of Boba Fett opens up many new possibilities and directions in which the plot of the second season of Mandalorian will move. However, Morrison is not expected to play a more significant role in the upcoming season, but will undoubtedly leave the possibility of his return at some point in the future. So maybe it will also be a long-awaited film about Boba Fett that a large number of fans would like to see.
The Mandalorian season 2 has been announced for October 2020.
