Could the greatest bounty hunter of all-time return for more adventures in the galaxy far, far away?
For years there was the notion that Boba Fett, a long-time fan-favorite, was going to get his own movie or Disney+ series. That prediction went down the drain when The Mandalorian arrived, introducing us to a brand new bounty hunter in a gleaming silver Beskar suit that was absolutely beautiful to behold. This bounty hunter, whose real name is Din Djarin, has wormed his way into our hearts, kicking butt while protecting the innocent Baby Yoda from fellow bounty hunters and creepily-obsessed Imperials.
This next season of The Mandalorian will apparently bring Temuera Morrison back to the Star Wars universe as he portrays an older Boba Fett (unless he’s playing Captain Rex, of course) and that is a fascinating thought. But…could this be a back-alley way to get people excited enough about Boba that it’s pretty much a pilot for his own series? A series that could bring Daniel Logan, who played young Boba in Attack of the Clones, back to the franchise in a series that follows his journeys either between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope or A New Hope or The Empire Strikes Back.
Even though a Boba Fett series would look very much like The Mandalorian we could see a more serious version of that story with a bounty hunter who hunts down all sorts of foes and has no parenting obligations in sight. Plus, we could meet a whole bunch of other bounty hunters and maybe even Han Solo could play a role if the story follows when he was in Jabba the Hutt’s gallery of rogues.
All in all, while the thought isn’t very likely, the idea of a Boba Fett Disney+ series still sounds very plausible and would be very fun to watch. I mean who doesn’t want to see more Boba Fett?!
I’m still, however, perfectly pleased with the fact that we’re going to get to see him again in the second season of The Mandalorian. That is going to be a ridiculously fun episode!
