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.
