Breaking: Temuera Morrison Joins “Ahsoka” as Captain Rex

It’s confirmed. Temuera has joined the new Disney+ show AHSOKA as Captain Rex. No word as to whether he’ll be playing Rex in current timeline, or in flashbacks. But this news is fantastic. Article below.

Boba Fett Star Temuera Morrison Joins Ahsoka as Clone Wars’ Captain Rex

Temuera Morrison will return to the Star Wars universe in the upcoming Ahsoka Disney+ series playing the first live action version of Captain Rex

Temuera Morrison, who famously played Jango Fett (and his clones) in the Star Wars prequel films, and then recently returnef to take over the role of Boba Fett in Boba Fett’s recent appearances on Star Wars: The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, will return to the Star Wars universe in the upcoming Ahsoka Disney+ series playing the first live action version of Captain Rex, a popular animated character who made his debut in the 2008 Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated film.

Dee Bradley Baker had been the only other actor to play Captain Rex before now (Baker voices all of the clone soldiers), with Rex showing up in a number of Star Wars animated series before now, including Star Wars: Rebels, The Bad Batch and Tales of the Jedi.

Who is Captain Rex?

Captain Rex, whose clone designation was CT-7567, was one of the best clone soldiers in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was Anakin Sykwalekr’s “first-in-command,” and he also served alongside Jedi Commander Ashoka Tano. He stood out among the other clones by his buzz cut blonde hair, and the stylized hawk eyes he put on his helmet, as well as some blue markings he put on his armor.

Rex was devoted to his fellow soldiers, and the Republic. He was one of the few clones who chose not to execute Order 66, as his inhibitor chip had been disabled before that point, and obviously he was too noble of a person to take part in such a massacre. He then continued to pop up in various Star Wars series over the years, including showing up older and slightly worse for the wear in Star Wars: Rebels. Fan speculation over the years have theorized that Red was one of the Rebels who helped disable the Death Star’s force field on Endor in Return of the Jedi.

Will Temuera Morrison be playing Rex in flashbacks or in “present day?”

Since Morrison played Jango Fett, the original source of the clones for the Clone army, it is unclear which version of Captain Rex he will be playing. The Ahsoka series will be set after the events of Return of the Jedi (on the same timeline of The Mandalorian), so it is unclear whether Morrison will be playing a “current” version of Rex, or if he will be playing Rex in flashbacks to the time Rex and Ahsoka worked so closely together in the Grand Army of the Republic.

It is also unclear whether Morrison will be playing any other clone characters in the series. Since he was the basis for the clones, it would make sense, but obviously, that was two decades ago, and Morrison is now 62 years old.

Ming Na Wen Says Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original

Ming Na Wen Says Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original

In a recent article, Temuera’s THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT co-star has offered her feelings on how Boba should be if the show should get a season two. I have to say while I loved what Tem brought to Boba in both his own show and THE MANDALORIAN, I have to agree about Boba’s character going forwrad. Feel free to read on for what Ming Na had to say.

Boba Fett Should Be More Like The Original Trilogy Version In The Future, Says Star

When asked about a potential Book of Boba Fett season 2, Ming-Na Wen stated the titular character should be more like his original trilogy depiction.

Co-star of The Book of Boba Fett Ming-Na Wen has stated that she thinks Boba should be closer to how he was depicted in the original trilogy in Star Wars‘ future. While no second season of The Book of Boba Fett has been confirmed, the expansion of the New Republic Era under the eyes of Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau means that the notorious bounty hunter-turned-Daimyo has a high chance of appearing again in the future. With The Book of Boba Fett taking the character in a new, honor-based direction, many have wished for a return to the brutal ways of Boba during the original trilogy.

This is a sentiment shared by Ming-Na Wen, who played Fennec Shand in The Book of Boba Fett alongside Temuera Morrison. In an interview with Collider, Wen was asked her thoughts on where she would like to see the characters and story go, should The Book of Boba Fett season 2 be made:

“You know, he’s this Lord now of Tatooine, and he is managing to have some control, but he was trying to do it one way, and I’m not sure how effective it was. He was trying to have a greater honor system, and I would love to see that he turns back to a bit more like what Boba Fett was in also being able to maintain justice, or accomplish what he needs to accomplish on Tatooine.”

As alluded to by Wen, the point of The Book of Boba Fett season 1 was to establish Boba as the Daimyo of Mos Espa. Through this, the complications with Fett’s honor system arose, with Wen rightly noting the fact that this caused problems for him and Fennec that the original trilogy era Boba may not have faced due to his more uncompromising nature.

Can Boba Fett Return To His Roots in A Second Season?

Despite Wen’s wishes, it may be impossible for Boba Fett to fully return to his roots in future Star Wars> stories. One of the best aspects of Boba Fett was his journey with the Tusken Raiders. It was through living among the Tuskens that Fett learned to appreciate having a tribe, somewhere he could belong. Fett then attempted to implement this way of living in Mos Espa, making him a much less bloodthirsty and more honorable character than he was in the original trilogy.

As a result, reverting Boba to how he used to be risks negating the arc he went through in The Book of Boba Fett season 1. That being said, the introduction of other villains for Boba could certainly allow audiences – and Ming-Na Wen, for that matter – to see more of the Boba Fett that was shown in the original trilogy. Through his enemies, Boba could channel the ruthless bounty hunter he used to be as a means of protecting the tribe he created during The Book of Boba Fett season 1.

Temeura Morrison Wants a Captain Rex Spin-Off

Temeura Morrison Wants a Captain Rex Spin-Off

While attending the Supanova Comic-Con in Melbourne, Temuera made his feelings known about wanting to bring Captain Rex to live-action. He also said he’d love to bring all the clones to live-action. I say the more Temuera the merrier. Article below.

Star Wars: Temuera Morrison Wants To Star In A Captain Rex Spinoff

Star Wars: Temuera Morrison Wants To Star In A Captain Rex Spinoff

Temuera Morrison is ready to move beyond playing Boba Fett, Jango Fett, and every Clone Trooper in the Star Wars prequel trilogy. He’s got his sights on something a bit more refined and a lot more grizzled. If the New Zealand actor has his way, there could be a Captain Rex spinoff in the works one of these days.

While Morrison played the clones of Jango Fett in the Star Wars movies, the infinite role went to voice actor Dee Bradley Baker when the stories moved to animation for the series The Clone Wars and others. This included the character of Captain Rex, a clone who managed to get past the impulsive programming of Order 66 and retain his ability to think freely. The character appeared prominently in The Clone Wars and later appeared as a much older version in Star Wars Rebels, still voiced by Baker. But he still hasn’t made his live-action debut, and Morrison sees that as an opportunity.

In an interview with Dexerto at Supanova Comic-Con in Melbourne, Morrison shared his simple pitch. “I’d love to do a Captain Rex [project] of some kind, that would be cool,” he said when asked what other stories he’d like to help tell in the Star Wars universe. “Just to play one of the clones.” Morrison already appeared prominently as Boba Fett in both The Mandalorian and The Book of Boba Fett. But while there’s still plenty of room for more Boba action, something about the clones keeps him intrigued and willing to return.

“I enjoyed playing that broken-down Clone Trooper in Obi-Wan,” he continued with a chuckle, referring to his cameo as a homeless veteran Clone Trooper in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series. “Credits please! That was fun, so something like that would be good, but we’ll see what happens with the powers that be.” The Star Wars clones shared a dark future after the events of The Clone Wars, and there’s a ton of storytelling potential there that would be wonderful to see with Morrison taking part. Sure, The Bad Batch has already explored that aspect of the clones’ tale, but it still has yet to get a proper live-action treatment.

There have been questions about whether Captain Rex will return for the Ahsoka series, particularly given the close camaraderie shared by the two characters in The Clone Wars. Seeing Morrison as the grizzled veteran on-screen would be a welcomed addition. But there have been no hints that he’s been cast in the series, and such things tend to leak. So as fun as that might be, it’s probably wise not to bet on it.

Still, it wouldn’t be the first time Star Wars has kept a perfect secret. Most were surprised to see Morrison make a guest appearance as Boba Fett in The Mandalorian season 2. That’s not even to mention the appearance of Jack Black and Lizzo in the series, which nobody saw coming. Morrison may have already played Rex in some secret way, making him fall in love with the character. So there’s always room for hope. That’s one theme Star Wars loves to explore, after all.

Robert Rodriguez Teases More “The Book of Boba Fett”

Robert Rodriguez Teases More “The Book of Boba Fett”

In a recent article, THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT showrunner and executive producer, Robert Rodriguez, has teased there might be a future for another chapter of the show. We all know Temuera wants to come back, but will this happen? Read the article below.

Robert Rodriguez teases a potential future for ‘The Book of Boba Fett’

2021’s The Book of Boba Fett doesn’t have a great reputation. The core concept of Fett taking over from Jabba the Hutt and becoming Tatooine’s newest mob boss has a ton of potential, though almost all of it was scuppered by a rushed production, unfocused storytelling, and some of the worst action scenes in the history of the franchise.

It’s telling that by far the best episodes of the show barely feature Fett at all, focus on Din Djarin and Grogu, and are essentially a sneaky The Mandalorian season 2.5.

But could The Book of Boba Fett ever return for a second season? Maybe the lessons of the past could be learned and we’d see him reclaim his position as the biggest badass in Star Wars? Heck, maybe for once we’d even see this crime lord commit some crimes! If there is a second season planned, showrunner Robert Rodriguez is keeping his lips sealed as he hinted in an interview with i09.

“I’m sworn to secrecy. I wish I could tell you. I know all the answers to what you’re asking, but I can’t say.”

It seems clear that Temuera Morrison will return as Fett at some point, likely in Dave Filoni’s theatrical movie announced at the Star Wars Celebration. Until then, Rodriguez is just happy to wax lyrical about how much fun it is to step behind the camera and shoot some Star Wars:

“Everything you saw every day… it didn’t feel like you were seeing behind the scenes. It felt so real. The sets were so real. Even the volume was so real that you felt like you were in Star Wars… You know, there’s these’s things called ‘Rock Camp’ that if you want to go play with [Aerosmith guitarist] Joe Perry or something, you pay money to get on stage for two seconds with him? This is what a director would pay money to do. To have Star Wars camp. To get to direct and edit and be part of the Star Wars universe just as an experience is one of my favorite experiences because it was just a dream come true.”

Rodriguez is a great director and should have knocked the dusty, vaguely Western-themed The Book of Boba Fett out of the park. We’re still confused that he fumbled the ball, so a second season where he could right some of these wrongs would be most welcome.

In the meantime, Temuera Morrison is still all over Star Wars, and happy to voice and play Clone Troopers wherever he can, so at least he isn’t going anywhere.

Temuera Morrison Mad at “Star Wars”

Temuera Morrison Mad at “Star Wars”

I usually don’t like to get political on my websites. I know how it can turn off some who prefer the fun of enjoying their favourite actor. I’m afraid I’m going to have to get a bit here. It concerns a recent appearance of Temuera at SUPANOVA Comic Con & Gaming convention in Melbourne, Australia where he expressed his feelings on not being asked to appear in THE MANDALORIAN season three when he was told he would. Given that Din Djarin and Grogu received two whole episodes of THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT to them with Boba having more or less a cameo in his own show, I would have hoped they’d have returned the favour in allowing Boba to appear in season three. Here is a bit more on what Tem had to say. What’s your take?

Star Wars: Boba Fett Actor Claims He Was Supposed to Return in The Mandalorian but “Nobody Rang”

With The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin becoming an integral component of Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett, many audiences wondered if Boba Fett would appear in Season 3 of The Mandalorian, and while the figure never ended up appearing, Boba Fett actor Temuera Morrison recently revealed that he was anticipating a return to the series. The actor didn’t confirm the extent to which he was anticipating a return, as he appeared in multiple episodes of Season 2 of The Mandalorian, so it’s unclear at what point in the development process it was teased that he would return before the series opted to avoid any appearance.

During an appearance at the SUPANOVA Comic Con & Gaming convention in Melbourne, Australia, per MSN, the actor admitted, “I was supposed to be in The Mandalorian Season 3 but nobody rang me. I was waiting for the phone call in New Zealand, waiting and wanting to give up.”

Boba Fett appeared in the final moments of the Season 2 premiere of The Mandalorian, while going on to be an important part of Djarin’s overall adventure in the season, and even earned a post-credits scene in the Season 2 finale for The Book of Boba Fett. While it wasn’t much of a surprise that Djarin then appeared in The Book of Boba Fett, some fans were disappointed that he earned so much screen time on a mission that was totally detached from Boba Fett. Morrison similarly joked about those deviations from his character’s story.

“Well that Mando guy stole a few chapters of my book,” the actor shared. “It was painful watching him turn up with some black new lethal sword. And the way he turned up in my Book of Boba, he just destroyed everybody. I’m sure this guy is… ah… ruining my show. But I couldn’t say anything. I’m not the writer, so I have to bear it I guess.”

In the time since The Book of Boba Fett debuted, audiences have wondered if we could get more episodes of the adventure, given how well it set up a number of exciting storytelling opportunities. There are currently no announced plans for a Season 2 and The Mandalorian similarly hasn’t been confirmed for a Season 4, though creator Jon Favreau has expressed his interest in such an opportunity. With a film from Dave Filoni set to bring together elements from The Mandalorian and Star Wars: Ahsoka, we won’t be surprised if the project also brings Boba Fett into the fold.

Stay tuned for details on Boba Fett’s future in the franchise.

Temuera Morrison Online – Missing In Action

Temuera Morrison Online – Missing In Action

Where to start? At the beginning is a good place. So you’re probably wondering where we went. Here one day, suddenly gone the next. Here it is in a nutshell. Back in October of 2022, my host was basically absent. Absent to the point they weren’t answering any emails, support tickets, nothing. There were also issues with one of their servers in that it wasn’t working at all. I had a couple of other sites on that server, and they were frequently glitching and disconnecting due to the server becoming unstable. A while back my host installed a plugin that was supposed to handle support tickets and other automated issues. This did work for a while and the host was doing a great job in getting back to their clients. Before that support tickets went to spam folders. Then after a while were systematically deleted with the host never having seen any of them. Back to the issue of the unstable server. I had decided since the server wasn’t displaying my sites I was going to move to another more reliable host. After finding one, I began hollowing out the server and finally deleting the account there.

For some time I was receiving error logs from the server to my email telling me what was happening on various days, and I didn’t understand why I was still getting these from this account as I’d already moved to another host. Logging back into my client dashboard, I found out that account was still active and the account I had this site for Temuera attached to, was gone. When I tried logging in to the site’s file directory, there was nothing I could do to get in. I went to another site on that server and found it gone. Subsequently I found all the sites totaling six in all were gone. Sites I’d been working on and building since 2015. After trying again to contact the host, I was finally able to find out when they deactivated the plugin to once again allow tickets and other services to begin again, it had mistakenly flagged this account, not the other, for deletion. I had partial back ups of those other sites, but not one on this one. This meant this site was completely gone. I had nothing. After hanging my head and battling a form of depression, I began the arduous task of recreating and rebuilding this site from scratch. It’s been a difficult thing to do as I wanted where I could, to be able to reconnect it to the posts I’d made on my various social media places. What you see here is a brand new version of the site. For the most part I had to consult cached copies of the site to recreate the posts, pages, and photos. It took a while, but against all odds, we’re back.

Thank you for your patience and for sticking with me. I’ll have more in the coming days.

Remember though that anything here is used under FAIR USE and no infringement is intended nor rights implied. I’m sure we can work something out so as not to have to remove anything.

What is “Fair Use”?

One of the rights accorded to the owner of copyright is the right to reproduce or to authorize others to reproduce the work in copies or phonorecords. This right is subject to certain limitations found in sections 107 through 118 of the copyright law (title 17, U. S. Code). One of the more important limitations is the doctrine of “fair use.” The doctrine of fair use has developed through a substantial number of court decisions over the years and has been codified in section 107 of the copyright law.

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research. Section 107 also sets out four factors to be considered in determining whether or not a particular use is fair:

  1. The purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes
  2. The nature of the copyrighted work
  3. The amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole
  4. The effect of the use upon the potential market for, or value of, the copyrighted work
  5. The distinction between fair use and infringement may be unclear and not easily defined. There is no specific number of words, lines, or notes that may safely be taken without permission.
  6. Acknowledging the source of the copyrighted material does not substitute for obtaining permission.

The 1961 Report of the Register of Copyrights on the General Revision of the U.S. Copyright Law cites examples of activities that courts have regarded as fair use: “quotation of excerpts in a review or criticism for purposes of illustration or comment; quotation of short passages in a scholarly or technical work, for illustration or clarification of the author’s observations; use in a parody of some of the content of the work parodied; summary of an address or article, with brief quotations, in a news report; reproduction by a library of a portion of a work to replace part of a damaged copy; reproduction by a teacher or student of a small part of a work to illustrate a lesson; reproduction of a work in legislative or judicial proceedings or reports; incidental and fortuitous reproduction, in a newsreel or broadcast, of a work located in the scene of an event being reported.”

Copyright protects the particular way authors have expressed themselves. It does not extend to any ideas, systems, or factual information conveyed in a work.

The safest course is always to get permission from the copyright owner before using copyrighted material. The Copyright Office cannot give this permission.

When it is impracticable to obtain permission, use of copyrighted material should be avoided unless the doctrine of fair use would clearly apply to the situation. The Copyright Office can neither determine if a certain use may be considered fair nor advise on possible copyright violations. If there is any doubt, it is advisable to consult an attorney.

Q: Can we repost any image from the gallery or any video from the media site anywhere we like?

A: Yes, however, don’t say you did it yourself. A lot of work has gone into creating this site as well as the amount of time it takes to screencap each episode of television work and or film. On average it takes about two to three hours depending on the work. I am providing these images for you free of charge, but not free to take and say it’s yours. Please credit back to this site if you’re posting to any message board.

Q: What is hotlinking?

A: Hotlinking is a way that someone right clicks on an image and choses the Properties dialogue to find out the filename. The person then copies that URL and then puts it on their own webpage but not on a webhost service or a photo storage site such as Photobucket, Imageshare, Picasa, or Flickr. When someone visits the page you have copied the URL into, that clicks as a visit on my site therefore it becomes part of my bandwidth that I pay for. So don’t do it.

Q: What is bandwidth?

A: Bandwidth is what I pay for my host services. It is the method that happens when a person clicks onto this site from a search engine or link on another website.

Q: Why do you include film logos, screen credit, production information, and cast roll at on your gallery screencaps?

A: The reason I inlcude those thing is to give proper credit to the production company(s), distributor(s), and supply a visual context to what Temuera’s screen credit looked like in both opening credits, and closing credits. It’s done just as a visual context. Also it’s just plainly fun.

Biography

Early Life:

Morrison was born in the town of Rotorua, on the North Island of New Zealand. He is the son of Hana Morrison (née Stafford), and musician Laurie Morrison. He is of Māori, Scottish, and Irish descent. His sister was performer Taini Morrison and his uncle was musician Sir Howard Morrison. His secondary education took place at Wesley College, Auckland, and Western Heights High School, Rotorua.

Career:

His first role was Rangi in the 1973 film Rangi’s Catch. He trained in drama under the New Zealand Special Performing Arts Training Scheme. One of his earliest starring roles was in the 1988 film Never Say Die, opposite Lisa Eilbacher. After this he played Dr. Hone Ropata on the television soap opera Shortland Street from 1992–1995; he was immortalised when another character rebuked him with the line “You’re not in Guatemala now, Dr. Ropata!”

In 1994, he received attention for his role as the violent and abusive Māori husband Jake “The Muss” Heke in Once Were Warriors, a film adaptation of Alan Duff’s novel of the same name. The film became the most successful local title released in New Zealand, and sold to many countries overseas. The role won him international acclaim and he received the award for best male performance in a dramatic role at the 1994 New Zealand Film and Television Awards. He reprised the role in the sequel, What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?, for which he received the Best Actor award from the New Zealand Film Awards. Despite the acclaim he received for his performance, Morrison said in 2010 that he felt typecast by the role, to the point that it was “a millstone round my neck”.[3]

He has appeared in supporting roles in Speed 2: Cruise Control (1997) and The Beautiful Country (2004). In 2005, Morrison became the host of the talk show The Tem Show on New Zealand television.

In the 1996 Queen’s Birthday Honours, Morrison was appointed a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit, for services to drama.

He started writing an autobiography in 2009, which he hoped would inspire others to “reach for the stars”.

He released his debut album, Tem, through Sony Music Entertainment NZ in late November 2014. The album consists of covers of songs that his father, and uncle Sir Howard Morrison, used to perform at local venues when he was growing up.

Star Wars:

Morrison appeared as the bounty hunter Jango Fett in Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones (2002). Part of the film’s plot involves an army of clones created with Jango’s DNA; Morrison also provided the voice acting for the clones. He reappeared as a number of clones in Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, and re-recorded the lines of the character Boba Fett (Jango’s clone “son”) in the 2004 DVD re-releases of the original Star Wars trilogy, replacing the voice of Jason Wingreen.

He has since portrayed Jango Fett and his clones in a number of Star Wars video games, all produced by LucasArts. He played the clone commando “Boss” in Star Wars: Republic Commando (2005), voiced all the troopers in Star Wars: Battlefront (2004), and voiced both Jango and Boba Fett in its sequel, Battlefront II (2005). Morrison reprised his role as Jango in Star Wars: Bounty Hunter (2002), a game centered around the character, and LEGO Star Wars: The Video Game (2005), along with his clones, but was uncredited in the latter. He also voiced Boba in the 2006 game Star Wars: Empire at War, and DICE’s Star Wars Battlefront (2015) and Battlefront II (2017), the latter of which were produced by EA.

Morrison physically portrayed Boba Fett for the first time in the second season of The Mandalorian (2020). In the show, Morrison portrays an aged, weathered version of the character. Morrison’s Fett has heavy scars on his face, and wears dark robes before reclaiming and restoring his armor. Morrison says that with the physically worn appearance, he adjusted his voice to be more gravelly, as if Boba’s vocal cords were affected by his past traumas. With the role, Morrison was also able to bring a bit of his own Māori culture to Fett’s portrayal. In an interview with The New York Times, he said that he “wanted to bring that kind of spirit and energy, which we call wairua, [to the role]” and used that influence in his on-screen fight scenes, both in the hand-to-hand combat and while wielding weapons.

In 2020, a spinoff of the hit series The Mandalorian was announced, titled The Book of Boba Fett. Morrison reprises his role as Boba Fett following Fett’s life after the events of the 1983 film Return of the Jedi. The series premiered on December 29, 2021.

Other Roles:

Morrison returned to Shortland Street for six weeks in June/July 2008 to reprise the role of Dr. Hone Ropata.

In 2008, Morrison also appeared on New Zealand skit comedy television show Pulp Sport, where he appeared in a sketch that made fun of him being cloned.

Morrison has appeared in two separate DC Comics related films. The first, portraying Abin Sur in the 2011 film Green Lantern. In 2018 he played lighthouse keeper and Arthur‘s father Tom Curry in Aquaman. He will reprise the role in Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, scheduled to be released on December 16, 2022.

Temuera Morrison Joins Jason Momoa on Apple+’s “Chief of War”

Temuera Morrison Joins Jason Momoa on Apple+’s “Chief of War”

Temuera has been added to the cast of CHIEF OF WAR also starring his AQUAMAN and AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM co-star, Jason Momoa. Seems these two are joined at the hip.

Jason Momoa Apple Series ‘Chief of War’ Casts Temuera Morrison

Temuera Morrison has joined Jason Momoa in the Apple limited series “Chief of War,” Variety has learned.

The role reunites the pair, as they previously played father and son in the DCEU film “Aquaman.” Morrison will also appear alongside Momoa in the sequel “Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom,” due out in theaters in December 2023.

“Chief of War” was first reported on in April. Per the official logline, the series “follows the epic and unprecedented telling of the unification and colonization of Hawaii from an indigenous point of view.” Morrison will play King Kahekili, the King of Maui.

Morrison is perhaps best known for his work in the “Star Wars” film and television universe. He recently starred in the Disney+ series “The Book of Boba Fett” after reprising the role of the lightly digested bounty hunter Boba Fett in fellow “Star Wars” series “The Mandalorian.” He first joined the franchise in the film “Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones” in the role of Jango Fett. Morrison is also known for films like “Once Were Warriors,” “What Becomes of the Broken Hearted?,” and “Moana.”

He is repped by JR Talent Group, Thirdhill Entertainment, and Bruce RBA Managent.

Apple has given “Chief of War” a nine-episode order. Momoa co-created the series with Thomas Pa’a Sibbett. Both serve as executive producers along with Francis Lawrence, Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping, and Doug Jung. Jung is also the series’ showrunner. Justin Chon will direct the first two episodes and executive produce. Fifth Season and Chernin Entertainment produce.

This will mark the first time Momoa has written for television. He previously co-wrote, directed, and starred in the film “Road to Paloma,” which was released in 2014. He and Pa’a Sibbett also co-wrote the story for the upcoming feature “The Last Manhunt,” with Momoa appearing onscreen in a supporting role. Momoa starred in the feature “Braven” in 2018, which was co-written by Pa’a Sibbett.

“The Book of Boba Fett” Season Two Hinted

“The Book of Boba Fett” Season Two Hinted

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 Morrison Wants More Boba Fett

Temuera Morrison Wants More Boba Fett

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.

Temuera Morrison Admits Things He’d Change About “The Book of Boba Fett”

Temuera Morrison Admits Things He’d Change About “The Book of Boba Fett”

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.

Jon Favreau Explains Why Boba Fett Couldn’t Break Bad

Jon Favreau Explains Why Boba Fett Couldn’t Break Bad

An article from the online version of Vanity Fair has Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni explaining why Boba played by our guy Temuera, couldn’t be completely a bad guy. I agree with them in that Boba had to change. i’m more than a little mad. Accompanying the article there was a behind-the-scenes video of photographer Annie Leibovitz taking a cover shoot with the STAR WARS Disney+ shows. The cover has Pedro Pascal (The Mandalorian/Din Djarin), Rosario Dawson (Ahsoka Tano), Diego Luna (Cassian Andor), and Ewan McGregor (Obi Wan Kenobi), but no Temuera Morrison as our favourite bounty hunter. I hope he’s in the actual publication, if not it’s a gross miscarriage. Please go to the site to read the article.

Star Wars: Jon Favreau Explains Why Boba Fett Couldn’t Break Bad

There’s an old maxim that states, “Never meet your heroes.” It may also apply to villains. The person behind a legend can never match that larger-than-life image, even when it comes to fictional characters. You have to accept them as human beings.

That was always the challenge with Boba Fett, the intimidating bounty hunter from 1980’s The Empire Strikes Back, whose masked face and reticence to speak gave Star Wars fans permission to imagine the worst—which actually made him more ominous and alluring. The more fans learned over the years, particularly about his origin in the prequel films, the more they questioned if they preferred the mystery. Fett seemingly met his demise in 1983’s Return of the Jedi, clumsily knocked into the maw of a giant sand-sphincter with teeth. He died like a chump. Debate about his legacy raged on.

Almost four decades later, The Mandalorian revealed that Boba Fett escaped being digested for a thousand years in the Sarlacc pit, and though gravely wounded, was eager to reclaim a seat of power in the galaxy. Then the recent Book of Boba Fett series followed his efforts to take control of the crime syndicate previously overseen by the late, great Jabba the Hutt. But instead of being a bloodthirsty capo, Temuera Morrison’s reborn Fett proved to be a godfather of a more measured nature: one seeking power, but also peace and honor among the lawless.

As usual with a fandom as vast as Star Wars’, there was discord in the discourse. Some fans vented frustration: Boba Fett survived all that, only to go soft? Others saw much to like in the show. A midseason shift of focus back to the lead character of The Mandalorian was widely praised, but also seen as an abrupt change in POV. All the while, the arguments continued: Should Boba Fett be more ruthless, or was his soulful self-reflection the right call?

Now series creator Jon Favreau and executive producer Dave Filoni are speaking out for the first time about why they felt Fett had to be more Don Corleone than Walter White. In an interview for Vanity Fair’s new cover story, “Star Wars: The Rebellion Will Be Televised,” they outlined their intentions and the logic they followed while making The Book of Boba Fett.

Basically, Fett was born to be bad: He was raised as the clone of a ruthless bounty hunter, orphaned at an early age, and forced to fend for himself or die trying. He lived outside the law for most of his existence, and wasn’t above siding with the dark side to get ahead. So for him to have a real journey later in life, the producers decided he should venture in a different direction.

Temuera Wants To Fight With This “Star Wars” Character

Temuera Wants To Fight With This “Star Wars” Character

Temuera has expressed the wish to fight with this iconic STAR WARS character. And it might be the one you might think if you remember Tem’s history within the universe. Particularly his turn as JANGO FETT in STAR WARS: EPISODE II – ATTACK OF THE CLONES.

The Star Wars Character Temuera Morrison Wants To Fight If The Book Of Boba Fett Season 2 Happens

Don’t believe what anyone online tells you; “The Book of Boba Fett” is still all about the titular bounty hunter’s journey. He crawled his way out of the Sarlacc Pit, got his armor back, and forged an alliance with Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen), all so that he could carve out a position of power on the sands of Mos Espa. The past couple of episodes may have diverted attention to the likes of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu, but undoubtedly, “The Book of Boba Fett” will get back to showcasing his mission for the season finale.

From the war with the Pykes to the introduction of Cad Bane, Boba Fett’s going to have a lot on his plate in the near future. But it’s never too early to start looking ahead to see what trouble he may find himself in for Season 2 and beyond. As it turns out, the show’s lead, Temuera Morrison, has an idea of what he’d like to see and who he’d want Boba Fett to go up against for the next installment of the series.

Temuera Morrison wants to square off against Mace Windu

Boba Fett is one of the baddest dudes in the galaxy, so when Morrison and Wen sat down for an interview with IMDb On the Scene, it was only natural the interviewer brought up how the duo’s characters would fight prominent foes in the “Star Wars” franchise. When the topic of Mace Windu (Samuel L. Jackson) comes up, Morrison doesn’t mince words, and it’s clear he wants his character to have a shot of vengeance against his father’s killer. As he puts it, “I think we better let Jon Favreau know that we should have another series, and I start looking for Mace.”

It would certainly make for an intriguing arc. Seeing how Mace chopped off Jango Fett’s head in “Attack of the Clones,” it would make sense that Boba Fett would carry that anger with him all those years later. It would also tie into the opening moment of “The Book of Boba Fett” when we saw a flashback of Boba in the Geonosis arena.

Of course, there’s the little matter of how Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) killed Mace Windu in “Revenge of the Sith,” so he shouldn’t technically be around during the events after “Return of the Jedi.” However, Boba Fett was believed dead for years, and he still managed to come back. Perhaps something similar could happen with Mace Windu so that we can finally get the rematch the galaxy has been waiting for.

Did I say the last post was it for Temuera’s THE MANDALORIAN episodes? Did I? Well can’t allow season two to end without including one of the most badass home invasions of all, though it should be posted in THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT section. How Boba played to pitch perfection by Temeura Morrison, and Fennec Shand played by Ming-Na Wen take over Jaba The Hutt’s palace and more or less evict Bib Fortuna (played here by Matthew Wood) and his minions was a delight to watch. The way he shoved Bib off of the throne and Fennec’s taking her place at Boba’s side. I just can’t…..

And we reach the end of season two of THE MANDALORIAN. It was nice to see Boba take this heroic turn considering his shaky past. Though with Temuera at the helm of this iconic character how could it fail. I had wanted to get all of Tem’s work on THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT done before the finale drops on Wednesday morning, but due to my schedule and other commitments it doesn’t look like it’ll happen. So my plan is to work on them over the next week or week and a half. Considering how much Tem is in his own show, aside from two episodes we’re not going to mention although they are amazing, it might take some time. Oh, gotta mention the major league tude being thrown Bo Katan’s (Katee Sackhoff) way. The “Princess” comment was nicely placed. Please be patient and thanks for coming along for the ride this far.

That’s all I’ll say. The featured image is my favourite scene in the entire run of Boba in the series. It’s the part after he’s shot down the two stormtrooper carriers intending to “hit the other one.” Loved Tem’s delivery in that scene.
