Temuera provided the voice for his badass STAR WARS character, BOBA FETT for STAR WARS: VISIONS. This was an animated anthology series created for the American streaming service Disney+. Produced by Lucasfilm, the series consists of various original stories set in, or inspired by, the Star Wars universe. Season one was created by a Japanese animation studio. It’s hard to mistake that voice.
In a recent screenshot on Disney+’s Spanish site, it apparently has “spoiled” a possible season two of THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT. There is some speculation this particular site has been right with “spoiling” further seasons of THE MANDALORIAN and other Disney+ properties. You be the judge.
The Book of Boba Fett Season 2 seemingly confirmed by Lucasfilm poster leak
The Book of Boba Fett was a delightful interlude in the Star Wars story. In-between the release of The Mandalorian Season 2 and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Boba Fett combined elements of the former’s genre action and the latter’s prequel nostalgia into a standalone adventure following Boba Fett as he starts his own empire.
It felt like the story ended in a natural place, but could Boba have further adventures on the horizon? One leak suggests just that. Here’s what might be in store for the future for Tatooine’s newest crime lord.
Redditor SomeBoredBoi posted a Spanish poster for recent and upcoming Disney+ products, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, and The Mandalorian Season 3. There was also something new: The Book of Boba Fett Season 2 was listed as “coming soon.”
Is this a marketing mistake, or an accidental leak? There’s no telling at the moment, but this is definitely a spark of hope for the fans who were hoping the Boba-based interlude was more than just a one-off.
Assuming there is a Season 2 of The Book of Boba Fett, when can we expect to see it? Considering how Season 1 tied into The Mandalorian Season 2, it’s unlikely we’ll see anything until well after The Mandalorian Season 3 hits Disney+. That could potentially make Boba Fett Season 2 a 2024 release, depending on how quickly it’s produced.
There is one issue that makes this poster suspicious, however. It doesn’t appear that other upcoming Star Wars shows like Ahsoka, Skeleton Crew, or The Acolyte are on it, so why would a season that probably wouldn’t be out for two years be included on it when shows coming much sooner don’t even merit a mention?
Still, there are no shortage of ways for the story of Boba and friends to continue. In the post-credits scene of The Book of Boba Fett Season 1 we saw Cobb Vanth in Boba’s bacta tank, healing from a run-in with Cad Bane. In Season 2, could the Sheriff of Freetown become one of Boba’s lieutenants? Or is he more likely to have his own arc in a future season of The Mandalorian?
The Book of Boba Fett has always been a Mandalorian-adjacent show, to the point where one episode of Season 1 barely contained Boba Fett at all and instead essentially functioned as a bonus episode of The Mandalorian Season 2. If The Book of Boba Fett Season 2 does get announced, the Star Wars Disney+ universe will be much bigger by the time it does, and the series could supplement and flesh out a variety of other shows.
Temuera has gone on record saying he wants more Boba Fett. Can’t blame him. So do I.
THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Star Temuera Morrison Hopes To See More “Badass” Take On The Bounty Hunter In Future
It wouldn’t be unfair to say the title character felt a little neutered in The Book of Boba Fett, and Temuera Morrison has joined fans in saying he hopes to see a badass take on the character in future.
After a tease in the first season, The Mandalorian’s second batch of episodes brought back Boba Fett for some badass interactions with Din Djarin. In The Book of Boba Fett, the bounty hunter wasn’t quite so formidable, something that ended up disappointing a lot of Star Wars fans.
While an exploration of what makes Boba tick was welcomed, his attempt to rule over Tatooine left many wondering if it was even worth pulling him out of the Sarlacc Pit. That’s a little harsh, but the Disney+ series definitely didn’t deliver a Fett who was quite as badass as we’d hoped for.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight (via SFFGazette.com), actor Temuera Morrison admitted that he’d like to revisit Boba, albeit in a way that focuses on what made the character so popular in the first place.
“We’ve got to bring him back somewhere. We’ve got to see the old Boba Fett,” he says. “We reintroduced him. We found out some stuff. But I think it’s time to get him back to his badass ways. No two ways around that. So, I think we sort of have that scope to go back there, but that’s out of my control. I’ll just see what happens.”
We’re certainly hoping Boba’s story didn’t end with The Book of Boba Fett, but there’s been no word on a season 2, so we have no idea what Lucasfilm has planned for the anti-hero. If the show had been a massive hit for Disney+, you’d think that more episodes would have been confirmed at Star Wars Celebration, but it’s always possible Fett’s story could continue elsewhere before then.

New images for you. Here Temuera attends the recent STAR WARS CELEBRATION where he was on a panel for THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT, THE MANDALORIAN and others.
The update on the site is this: I’m in the process of editing THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT screencaps. It’s been a long task since there’s over 100,000 to edit. It’ll take some time to complete. I also have the Disney Gallery documentary on the show and I’ll be including those in the upload. Please be patient.
In this article, Tem reveals the things he’d change about Boba Fett in THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT if he could have. For me it was about right for where Boba was at that stage. He was fighting for turf on Tatooine, and he needed to present the right amount of diplomatic skills he needed. A part of that was being able to speak authority to the syndicate members.
Book of Boba Fett Star Admits He’d Change Things About The Show
Temuera Morrison, who starred as the title character in The Book of Boba Fett, had admitted that there are things he would change in retrospect.
The Book of Boba Fett star Temuera Morrison admits that looking back, there are things he would’ve done differently on the show. The live-action Star Wars series released on Disney+ in late December of last year, running through early February. It followed the titular Boba Fett as he escaped the Sarlacc pit and looked to take over Jabba the Hutt’s old criminal empire. The series also featured the returns of fan-favorite characters Din Djarin and Grogu, both of whom had key roles in the last batch of episodes.
Whereas The Mandalorian was critically acclaimed and beloved by audiences, The Book of Boba Fett received a much more mixed reception. As exciting as it was to see the iconic bounty hunter finally get the spotlight decades after decades, some felt The Book of Boba Fett didn’t live up to its potential. The first handful of episodes were criticized for being a bit directionless, and then there was the feeling the show lost its way entirely when it pivoted to pick up lingering Mandalorian season 2 threads (essentially writing Boba out of two episodes). Most would agree some things on The Book of Boba Fett could have turned out differently, and that even includes Morrison.
In an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Morrison professed how grateful he is to be part of such a popular franchise. He gave praise to Fennec Shand actress Ming-Na Wen, as well as the crew of the show for helping him when he was unsure of what to do. He then went on to admit that in retrospect, there are some aspects he would’ve changed about his performance. Read his full quote below:
“Feeling the love from all the fans, feeling that we’ve done something good and the reaction I’ve been getting from the fans is overwhelming. [I’m] very proud, and just grateful for the wonderful opportunity to play Boba Fett in The Book of Boba Fett, to work with Ming-Na. We had a wonderful chemistry. It was so easy to work with her. She had been my confidant and it was really a duo effort.
When I was short on information, we had a wonderful crew around us… I had plenty of people to draw on. And even that was a journey for Boba Fett, [from] where we’d found him and where we were taking him; the introduction of the Tuskens, providing that nourishment, that family environment.
Now that I’m looking back at it, I don’t know, it’s just one of those things. Things are great when you look back, but there are some things I may have done a little bit different.
But again, just for me to work with Jon and be part of the Mandalorian family [has] just been quite phenomenal, really.”
Unfortunately, Morrison didn’t elaborate on what specifically he’d go back and change, but his previous comments about the show could provide some insight. Back in January, the actor confessed he thought Boba Fett talked too much on the show, and he actively campaigned to have less dialogue in order to preserve the aura of mystery surrounding the bounty hunter. That had long been a key component of the character, particularly during the original trilogy era. Morrison was apparently a fan of that aspect, so perhaps he’d trim out some of Boba’s lines and give them to other characters. Overall, though, he is grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of Star Wars, so it doesn’t sound like he regrets making The Book of Boba Fett. No movie or show is perfect, and actors can at times be their own worst critics.
Since The Book of Boba Fett was not as well received as Lucasfilm might’ve hoped, it’s not too surprising to hear that its main star would change some things in retrospect. However, what’s done is done, and despite what viewers may say about the execution of the show’s story, the characters of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand remain fan favorites. Morrison is known for his contagious enthusiasm when it comes to the Star Wars fans — see his haka dance at Star Wars Celebration — and with that, it’s appreciated that he can be completely honest as well.
