From right here on, we’ll spotlight a few of the experiences about casting and returning characters. When you’d moderately not know, watch out for POSSIBLE SPOILERS from right here on out.  

On March 20, Slashfilm reported that season 2 will see Ahsoka Tano, former Padawan of the late Anakin Skywalker, make her reside motion debut. She’ll apparently be performed by Rosario Dawson, whom you may keep in mind enjoying Claire Temple in Netflix’s Marvel shows.

Katee Sackhoff will apparently carry Bo-Katan Kryze, a Mandalorian warrior she voiced in The Clone Wars and Rebels, into reside motion within the second season. She shot her scenes in February, Slashfilm reported.

Bo-Katan, who performed a pivotal position within the just-concluded The Clone Wars, held the Darksaber and united the clans of Mandalore within the last season of Rebels. Since these occasions, Moff Gideon took the weapon, however we do not know the way that occurred.

Michael Biehn, who performed Kyle Reese in The Terminator and Corporal Hicks in Aliens, will be part of the solid as a bounty hunter, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter. Invoice Burr will apparently additionally reprise his position as gunslinger Mayfield, according to i09.

In a Feb. 4 earnings call, Disney boss Bob Iger additionally talked about the likelihood that a few of the present’s characters might go “in their very own instructions by way of collection” — hinting that we would see some Mandalorian spinoffs down the road.


Boba Fett hasn’t been seen because the occasions of Return of the Jedi.


May Boba Fett present up?

It looks like he will make his return in season 2 and be performed by Temuera Morrison, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter and PJDM sister web site The actor beforehand performed bounty hunter Jango Fett in Attack of the Clones and likewise portrayed the clone troopers in that film and Revenge of the Sith.

Jango was recruited by Depend Dooku to function the genetic template for the clone military utilized by the Galactic Republic, as a part of Darth Sidious’ tremendous convoluted plot to wipe out the Jedi. A part of Jango’s fee was an unaltered clone that he might increase as his son — Boba — however the elder Fett was killed through the Battle of Geonosis.

The youthful Fett was performed by Daniel Logan in Assault of the Clones and The Clone Wars CGI animated collection, however The Mandalorian takes place many years later and a grown-up Boba would look an identical to Jango.


Jango Fett is lifeless, however there are a couple of clones of him working across the galaxy.


Nonetheless, Boba is not the one particular person with Jango’s face. Regardless that clone troopers had been designed to age at an accelerated velocity, some might nonetheless be alive. The Rebels collection finale revealed that Commander Rex fought within the Battle of Endor (a couple of years previous to the occasions of The Mandalorian), whereas Commander Wolffe survived till at the least the tip of Rebels.

You may assume that Jango and Boba are Mandalorians as a result of they put on the armor, however Mandalorian Prime Minister Almec dismissed them as pretenders through the Clone Wars. Nonetheless, Almec wasn’t probably the most reliable character, so all bets are off as to the Fetts’ heritage.

Followers have been clamoring for Boba’s return to the Star Wars galaxy regardless of his fall into the maw of a hungry sarlacc in Return of the Jedi. We noticed a mysterious particular person method murderer Fennec Shand’s physique on Tatooine within the last moments of the fifth episode, with Fett’s trademark spur sound effect, however the present did not observe up on that tease within the first season.

We’ll additionally see Timothy Olyphant, who performed gunslingers in Deadwood and Justifiedjoining the cast, in keeping with The Hollywood Reporter. His character will apparently put on Boba Fett’s armor, Slashfilm famous in a follow-up report.

Chuck Wendig’s Aftermath trilogy of novels, that are set between Return of the Jedi and The Mandalorian, included Mandalorian armor that is closely implied to be Boba’s getting recovered from the sarlacc’s maw and worn by former slave Cobb Vanth. Utilizing the armor as an emblem of energy, he turns into sheriff of Freetown (a settlement on Tatooine) and gives sanctuary to anybody prepared to battle the world’s crime syndicates. It’d make extra sense for Vanth to have been the one who inspected Shand’s physique in season 1, however we’ll see.

Followers of the Legends materials (developed in novels, comics and games prior to 2014) will recall that Boba escaped the sarlacc in that continuity and went on to grow to be the chief of Mandalore in a really totally different (and non-canon) post-Return of the Jedi galaxy.
