When Boba Fett was introduced back into the world of Star Wars in season two of The Mandalorian, Temuera Morrison reprised his role as the deadly bounty hunter. Morrison first appeared in Star Wars in the 2002 film Attack of the Clones where he played the iconic Jango Fett. Now, his first character’s son, Boba, is all grown up and ready to claim the seedy criminal underworld of the galaxy in his first solo TV series. Morrison exclusively gave Express.co.uk the first details of The Book of Boba Fett, which is due to hit the Disney streaming service this December.
The Book of Boba Fett was first announced in a post-credits scene after the final episode of The Mandalorian season 2. During the scene, Boba arrived at Jabba the Hutt’s palace on Tatooine and claimed the throne for himself, teasing more to come for the ruthless fighter.
When asked what plot details he could give us about the new show, Morrison laughed: “You know the rules, nothing! Nothing!”
The Kiwi actor – who was promoting his new science-fiction epic Occupation: Rainfall – went on: “It’s in the timeline of The Mandalorian so, I guess, we gotta go back and see.
“It’s a duo thing. We’ve got Ming-Na Wen in there – she’s playing the master assassin Fennec Shan.”
Morrison continued: “We’ve gotta look at the timeline, we gotta look at where [Boba] has been. We gotta keep the fans happy.”
Keeping Star Wars fans happy and excited won’t be too much of a problem considering The Book of Boba Fett is being handled by some of the greatest creators of the series, Morrison added.
First and foremost in the line-up, he explained, is Jon Favreau of Marvel fame. The director and executive producer has worked tirelessly on expanding the Marvel Cinematic Universe from behind the scenes.
The actor said: “Jon [Favreau] has come up with some magical formulas.”

With a smile, the 60-year-old actor said: “Let’s put it this way: You’re going to love it!”
Boba Fett’s story has never been considered over. Despite being killed off in 1983 film Return of the Jedi, his popularity spurred writers to revive him and extend his storyline in expanded pieces of the Star Wars mythos – in books, comic books, etc.
Going forward, does Morrison think The Book of Boba Fett will continue into a second season?
“I think they’ll have to consider some things… The tree is still growing.”
Morrison continued: “They’ll probably want to test the waters first, there’s been no talk about it.”
The humble star went on to add he would just take each job as it comes – whether that means Boba Fett will get another adventure or not.
The Book of Boba Fett hits Disney Plus in December.
The Mandalorian seasons one and two are available on Disney Plus.
