Temuera Morrison discusses putting Boba Fett’s armour on and talks about the possible standalone Disney+ series

So, if like us, you’re still recovering from last week’s amazing episode of The Mandalorian, then we have some fun news for you.

In a new interview, Temuera Morrison, who returned as Boba Fett in a big way, talks about returning to the iconic role (Yes, I know he played Jango in Attack of the Clones, but he was brought in to voice Boba in the Special Editions, so technically…) and what the future may – or may not – hold for the iconic character.

“When we find Boba, he’s well-worn, and he’s been through a lot,” Morrison said.

“He’s a survivor, and he’s weathered. Now it was time to find out more about what makes Boba tick. Is he more than just a simple man, trying to make his way through the galaxy? Is he tired of all the fighting?”

It is certainly hinted at that Boba is returning out of a sense of duty rather than to kill for money in the series.

Interestingly though, the actor hints that he, as of yet, doesn’t know how Boba survived the Sarlacc pit he fell into in Return of the Jedi but hinted that perhaps if he gets the rumoured spinoff series (here) it could be part of the story we see told: “I’m just going to have to wait and see. 

“I think a lot of it depends on how things go with this season, but I don’t really know. I wanted to bring everything I had to that [episode] and give them a glimmer of what I can offer. There’s room for this to go someplace. I hope I’m going to be included.”

From what we’re hearing, the Boba Fett series IS coming on Disney+, so I’m very, very excited to see Morrison dawn the armour a lot more on-screen.

What say you all? Did you love the new series as much as us? Did you think it was too much? Let me know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
