Multiple reports suggest that Temuera Morrison, who played Jango Fett in “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones” will return to the franchise to play Boba Fett in season 2 of “The Mandalorian.”

Morrison played the character Jango Fett in “Attack of the Clones.” Jango Fett was revealed to be the father of Boba Fett (who was an unaltered clone of Jango). Jango Fett ended up being cloned to create the clone trooper army of the Army of the Republic.

Morrison previously voiced Boba and Jango Fett in “Star Wars” video games.

According to Deadline, Morrison will have a small role as Boba Fett, who appeared to have died in “Return of the Jedi” when he fell into the sarlacc pit.

That said, Boba Fett may have already made two cameos in “The Mandalorian” in season 1. In fact, he may have appeared at the end of the first episode. As I wrote for the Deseret News, Boba Fett may appear around the 18:31 mark of the pilot episode. When the Mandalorian visits an underground character, a figure moves right by him. You can barely make out an image of the character upon first watch.

But when you lighten up the footage, you can see a character who looks a lot like Boba Fett.

“While other characters in the background of this scene are also wearing Mandalorian armor, this figure most closely matches the color scheme and armor of Boba Fett. Notice the red in both his helmet and his left forearm, which you can see in this shot from ‘Return of the Jedi,’” according to Nerdist.

And the fifth episode of the first season, which took place on Tatooine, had a cliffhanger rending that showed a pair of spurred boots stepping into frame. As I wrote in my review for the Deseret News, the boots may have belonged to Boba Fett.
