‘Mandalorian Season 2: ‘Jango Fett’ Actor Temuera Morrison To Play Boba Fett — Deadline

New Zealand actor Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in Star Wars, Episode II: Attack of the Clone, will play that bounty hunter’s son, Boba Fett in the second season of Disney+ The Mandalorian. Morrison is no stranger to the Fett family having played both Jango and Boba in the Star Wars videogames. Reports are that the Boba Fett role…

Oh nice. I do hope Daniel Logan gets to reprise his role at some point too though.

This upcoming Boba Fett movie, it NEEDS to have both Temuera Morrison and Daniel Logan in it! They should’ve been trending the second the news was announced! Consider: Morrison could play both flashback-Jango and older-Boba and Logan could play both young Jango (if needed) and in-his-prime Boba. Daniel Logan looks like this now, i.e. amazing. Temuera Morrison is a damn good, award-winning actor; Daniel Logan was a great actor at 14 so imagine what he’s like now. Why would any writer/director/producer pass up this opportuniiiiiiiiiity

People really out here asking for a Boba Fett Movie…

Potentially the first Maori-led Star Wars film? Potentially a whole new outing for either Daniel Logan or Temuera Morrison (or both?) Potentially the chance to start a new, non-white-dominated sci-fi franchise?

Potentially the first ever Star Wars film to have a character of colour as its title character?

Damn right I’m asking!

racebending:

In 2002, Star Wars fans learned that fan favorite bounty hunter character Boba Fett was actually a person of color under that distinctive green helmet.  Young Boba Fett was played by actor Daniel Logan, who is of Maori descent.  Fans also learned that Fett was a clone of Jango Fett, a character played by Temuera Morrison,  who is also of Maori descent.  Presumably, the adult Boba Fett would grow up to look exactly like Morrison.  

(Logan is depicted in the above images as a young kid in Episode II and dressed up in Boba Fett’s armor in a fan photoshoot.)

This week, Disney announced plans to produce a new Star Wars movie featuring Boba Fett as the central character.  If the casting for this character remains consistent and is not whitewashed, this Boba Fett film will be one of the most high profile Hollywood lead roles for a Maori actor, ever.

I mean, I do agree, but on the other hand Hollywood ain’t exactly overflowing with Maori-led movies, which a Fett movie would be.
